I Love Turtles: styling a midi sweater-dress with a moto vest and platform booties

Spring may have sprung, and April is quite literally right around the corner…so what the heck am I doing in an über-cozy turtleneck sweater-dress??

The weather aside – Vancouver continues to be as damp and chilly as it typically is in the middle of winter! – I’m also still feeling the after-effects of that horrible virus that knocked me out last week. And as much as I love my jeans, I also invariably get to the point where I want to switch things up and wear something with a skirt instead…so today it was this woolly, oversized variation on the sweater theme that came to my rescue!!

Dresses truly are the definition of “easy”, don’t you agree??  One piece, add some fab footwear, and you’re done!!  Of course, a bit of layering never fails to take a more basic look from perfectly fine all the way to fantastic…and my moto vest was just the thing to zshuzsh up my dress without obscuring the view!!  😉

Are you a fan of dresses as well, dear readers??  Do you wear them year-round…or wait until the weather warms up before daring to do one??  As always, I look forward to hearing from you!!

    I felt like reading your words I was speaking! I swing back and forth regularly between jeans and dresses or skirts. It's more fun that way!

    I love dresses, but I don't wear them much in winter. NY can get pretty darned cold! When there is a break in the weather I will rush to wear as many skirts and dresses as I can until it gets cold again. I just own too many cute skirts not to wear them all. In the summer I'm all about the dress. I love taking a simple dress and dressing it up with cardigans and scarves and colorful shoes – like what you're doing here, but I'm never quite as daring – yet.

    Belated comment, but I'm a year-round dress wearer! I rarely wear pants at all these days. I love a good dress.
