Stick Around

 photo 1_zps4034623b.jpg
The day I realized you could put tees or shirts overtop of dresses and make them look like separates was the day my wardrobe grew 2x. It's genius and such a simple way to get more use out of your items! I am all about getting millage out of all my pieces.
  Take this dress for example, this baby has been rocking out in my closet since '11. It's a babydoll style dress that actually on it's own does not do anything for me, but when paired with other pieces I love it. I think it helps that the colours and subtle floral print lend itself to be mixed well. It's managed to hang on through all the purges of my closet, I think that has something to do with the fact that it's chiffon and feels lighter than air. 
I apologize for all the snow on my lower half in these photos, I had to make a path through 2 feet of snow to get to my favourite photo spot. The things we do for blog love

  1. I've been putting sweaters over dresses all winter long ...but t-shirts?! How have I never thought of this. I think you just expanded my wardrobe as well too! Such a pretty look here Jenna. I love the lacy t-shirt with the scooped back. It actually looks like it's one piece instead of two separates. xoxo

  2. All perfectly accessorized as usual.

    Also, I would never have guessed that that was a dress and not a skirt!

  4. You look so great in these pictures. How are you not frozen to death? I would die with short sleeves. You must be a champ! Also how did you make the t-shirt over dress look so amazing and easy? I usually have to knot it in the back to make it not look wide and bulky.

  6. Ha ha, it's so true about layering skirts (or sweaters) and dresses... it's so simple but so few people think of it, when you tell someone you've done it they act like you're a genius. I honestly couldn't live with out it, though - I don't own all that many skirts, just a lot of dresses that I put sweaters over! Speaking of dresses, the one you're wearing here is so simple and elegant, I can't help but love it :)

  7. Your nails! And the subtle print on your shirt!

    And dude you're right, layering things over dresses is pure magic the first time you discover it. Feels like you unlocked the universe of closets, haha.

  12. I call myself "guilty" of this little wardrobe trick because I do it all. the. time! And funny, I have a little floral chiffon number that seems to be primetime for these types of outfits as well! Just like yours, mine has stayed through many a purge, and been with me since...2010? I have to add that I love the socks (where are those from??) AND I am impressed by your ability to take pictures outside in the freeeeezing cold! I tried this weekend and it was just windy (no snow) and I couldn't!

    perfectly Priya
