OOTD: After the Snow Melts

February 15, 2014

As is typical in North Carolina, we went from very cold weather to kinda warm weather within the span of a few days. I took a cue from the sun to wear a winter-ish outfit that requires it to not be too cold outside. I got this H&M dress about a month ago from their online store, and I’ve been toying around with different looks. It’s really a piece that allows you to dress it up or down, and this time I chose to dress it a little up.

This dress has a sheer yoke and sleeves, as well as long skirt. I love that the sheer is heavy enough that I feel comfortable wearing such a short lining underneath (or at least short for me). I paired it with jewelry from F21, belt from ASOS, and clutch from Zara.

The skirt also has slits on both sides which gives the dress great movement as you walk.

I could imagine this dress working really well with a cool, sporty jacket as well as being worked with a fancier coat/cardigan. The maxi length makes it a good transitional piece from winter to spring, as well.

Are you already thinking of and dressing for spring, or are you still fully winter? Is your fashion seasonal or do you wear the same kinds of things year round?

    I never fully dress for winter. My wardrobe is a mixture of florals and colour which I wear whole year round….I was raised in the Caribbean so please don’t blame me! I love your outfit! I recon a dress like that would go really well with a statement necklace and bold lips!

    That looks great! Do you wear wide width shoes? If so, where do you find them and are they comfortable. I love all of them but feel like they would hurt me so bad.

      I sometimes do and sometimes don’t. I mostly wear Old Navy flats, which aren’t wide, but some of my heels are. I’ve found good wide shoes at Avenue and at New Look. They definitely fit a little different for everyone, so I recommend trying one pair and seeing how it goes.

      Why do you think they would hurt? The only thing I notice sometimes is that because they are wide, my feet may shift down farther in the shoes. Other times they fit my feet perfectly and are more comfortable than non-wide shoes.

    You look so glamorous and chic! I adore hard case clutch bags and this works SO perfectly with the rest of your outfit! Beautiful!
