Knees, Please

Works Cited--Outfit 16
dress: anthro (gift from chrisopher)
sweater: bcbg (gift from former roommate, what can i say, i have generous friends)
boots: steve madden
socks: target
brooch which you can't see but makes the outfit, i swear: vintage, thrifted

It's 61 degrees in February and my knees are bare (take no notice of the snow I'm standing on, it melted by noon). Hello, global warming, won't you stay awhile (but then go away in June, please)? This dress has gotten a lot of wear so far--my students might think I don't own anything else because I've worn it four times already. Or maybe I'm such a skilled remixer that they don't even notice it's the same dress. Let's hope for the latter. Happy weekend! I hope it's warm enough for your knees to come out and play, too :)

I always like your photo summaries of "how to wear X." Maybe it's just because you're so cute :-) But I do especially like this dress belted with the brown sweaters.

Emily said...

One of my faves of your remix this time! xo

i love this outfit. one of my favorites so far!

Natalie said...

I love this dress in all of your remixes of it. It's such a great color and a perfect style to remix.

I'm also a huge fan of the bracelet. Don't know what it is, but my eyes keep being drawn to it.

Oh my gosh, I can't believe its that warm up there!! Hehe gotta love those random heatwaves. This outfit is so cute - hi knees!

Rochelle Approved said...

I am pretty sure that most of your students have no clue that it's the same dress because of your amazing remixing skills! That's awesome that it's getting warmer there, as I'm convinced warmer people are typically happier people :)

Such a great outfit! I love the long cardigan.

Sal said...

Yay warm weather! And I ADORE your hair worn like that.

Alessandra said...

I especially love your dress today - with that cardi, socks & boot combo and your hair up.

Carla @ More Than Tuesdays said...

I think this looks *adorable* with your knees out-and-about! :) I like the second look but today's might be my fav so far (and I have to agree with Sal ^^^ your hair does look terribly cute like that)

I love the sweater. I would probably walk past it in the store, so I must remember to be open, keeping outfits like this in mind.

Emily said...

Some of my students don't even know my last name, so I think it's safe to say that yours probably haven't noticed that you're wearing the same dress :)

That draping is simply fantastic!

A Tablespoon Of Life said...

So So cute! :)

Liz (26 and Counting) said...

Yay for bare legs and super duper remixing skills! You've put a unique twist on that dress each time.

Brittany Pruett said...

So pretty! Love the sweater. It's 66 in Mississippi and the high is 77. I'm wearing shorts. :)

Sara K.S. Hanks said...

I LOVE THIS LOOK! =) The messy topknot and the long gray cardigan are just perfection.

Rebecca said...

I think this is my favorite outfit of the four featuring this dress. I'm jealous of your bare legs.

Anja said...

this combination is by far my favorite! I really adore it with the cardigan and that high hair knot. And of course the bare knees!! Great to have warm weather, lucky you!

Megann Monday said...

Oooh I love how you were able to make the dress look like a totally different piece just by the other pieces you put it together with. This would have to be my fave though. :) That sweater/cardigan over the dress is a neat idea. Hello knees! Hope you're having good weather there. :)

The Pretty Life Anonymous said...

That sweater and that dress together is adorable. I wish that is what I was wearing today! So cute.

grace said...

i love how you tied the sweater today! the high waisted sash gives it a different look than the last time you remixed it!

Katie said...

This looks absolutely stunning. I love how it drapes!

Eclectic Flair said...

Looking great as always!! And great remixing that dress!

Cel said...

Cute! I think what this dress needs for some good remixing is some PATTERN! I'm seeing a lot of solid and lost of similar colours... Blue flowers? Abstract geometric? A fun, colourful pattern to mix things up could definitely be another good way to give this dress some fresh wear :)

Savannah said...

I love that sweater! It's so flattering which is hard to find sometimes with long cardi's. You're an awesome remixer!

The drape of that cardigan is beautiful! I am jealous - it is freezing and super windy here (but it was warm enough for some bare leg action yesterday - hooray!)

Shoe said...

I really love this dress and your remixes of it, particularly the latest incarnation. It just looks great on you!

BiblioMOMia said...

Okay, I thought I loved that sweater when you wore it with jeans. But that was NOTHING compared to with the Christopher dress! Absolutely lovely, lady, especially with the hint of bare leg.

Llara said...

Cute outfit - and, yes, I was concerned for your cold knees!

My Heart Blogged said...

I'm in love with this weather. I wore a skirt today because I was too hot in jeans. Your students probably think you are the greatest remixer in the land.

emmy said...

This is by far my favorite outfit on you! Nice job mixing!

Stef / Diversions said...

That dress so bears repeating but I think this is my favourite pairing yet - that cardi is awesome the way it binds round the front - generous friends indeed!

Happy weekend! Hope the milder weather continues :)

Pineapple said...

I completely adore the fullness of this sweater with this dress. Lovely!

Justine said...

oh dear, yeah they might notice IF they keep track of what you wear too =P

Just Better Together

Meg said...

LOVE this outfit! I think the sweater is my favorite part. It goes so well with the dress. I think "grorange" (Or "grust"?) might be the new hip color combo!

anotherfishinthesea said...

ooooh i had bare knees today too and it was wonderful :)

Jess said...

I love this outfit! The long cardigan with the dress is wonderful!

Jeanine said...

LOVE your remixes with this dress. And it's a beautiful dress ~ that's my favorite color.

My favorite one is the one with the brown sweater over it, belted.
