The Perfect Dress: Wear It Now and Later!

...and yes, there is some color involved! I have not backed down from my pro-color commitment, and this dress is the perfect bright (but not too bright) green color. It is also perfect because I could wear it now in the cold weather (it has been disarmingly mild this week, but I know it will get colder, Sigh!) and I could easily change accessories to make it a perfect summer dress! Here the dress both ways:

Brrr! It's cold outside! Top the dress with a playful scarf and add tights and booties:

Madewell Cabana dress, Sophia Costas Sheep scarf, Donna Karan Luxe Layer tights, Elizabeth and James Chaps booties

Fun in the summer sun! Shed the layers for fun wedges and a statement necklace:

Madewell Cabana Dress, Tony Duquette x Coach Spike necklace, Stuart Weitzman Encore Espadrille Wedge

What pieces do you love to wear year-round with a little accessory tweak?


  1. I like the color blocking and the length on that dress. The winter pairing is so cute.

  2. What a great, versatile piece! Oh, Madewell. How I love you.

  3. I adore that first combination. The dress is amazing and I would wear it for sure! Happy Monday, darling. xo
