Winterizing a Lace Dress with an Argyle Cardigan and Moccasins

I like trying to wear my spring and summer dresses in a winter-appropriate manner. It had been a while since I wore my off white lace dress, so it was definitely time. I actually came up with this outfit while I was hanging up clothes in my closet. I had the dress out on the bed and the gray argyle cardigan ended up on top of the dress. There was a tiny flashbulb moment and an outfit was born!

I wore this over the weekend while hanging out with my family. It's actually a pretty comfy outfit. Cardigans with dresses are usually the most comfortable clothes combinations for me.

dress, cardigan: forever 21 | moccasins: old navy | belt: thrifted | tights: target kids' section




I've had these moccasins since freshman year of college and they're still going strong. I didn't wear them all that much the past couple years, but I've been wearing them pretty frequently this winter. I just really like the color. Plus they add a nice touch of comfy cold-weather appropriateness to an outfit - just like they're doing in this outfit! 
I actually bought this argyle cardigan around the same time as the shoes and used to wear them together with jeans. It's funny how I end up pairing them together again and again.



I have a ton of work to get done today, so unfortunately I'll be doing that for the next 10-12 hours. There might be a little bit of procrastinating in between though. I can only hope.

Happy Monday!

Ah, so cute! I adore that belt and how you matched the argyle pattern's blue with those shoes. Too cute! I have a similar lace dress, so this gives me a bunch of ideas for winterizing it.

Good luck on getting all your work done! I'll be doing the same, with mid procrastination breaks and all. ;)

Styling summery dresses for the winter is one of my favorite things to do :-) This is just lovely! I love the dainty lace dress with the more masculine argyle print - such a great contrast! xo Marisa

I absolutely love the bright pop of the mocs in this outfit. Some of the best outfits are made by things landing together while putting washing away! Your hair looks so lovely here too! Total hair envy right now haha! Have a lovely week!

I like the outfit! Of course, there's too much snow to really make mocasins winter-appropriate where I'm from but early spring and I'll be wearing mine again all the time.
