Outfit of the day: winterizing the Reed dress
dress - Anthropologie, sweater - Costa Blanca, belt - Forever 21, boots - Frye
I have a soft spot in my heart for shirt dresses with full skirts. They make me feel simultaneously put together, pretty, girly and low maintenance. If they have snack pockets, that's a major bonus!
My Anthropologie Reed dress doesn't get nearly enough wear during the cold weather months because the material is so thin and floaty that it feels spring. The print however says all seasons to me, so I set out (or inside my closet) with the goal of winterizing the dress. I'm happy with the combination that I came up with. The short sleeved cardigan lets the print on the sleeves show, while the belt cinches in my waist. And bonus... double set of snack pockets! Before you judge me and my need for four(*) pockets, let me remind you that I am also keeping a preschooler's appetite satisfied too.
* Make that five pockets... forgot to count the chest pocket on the Reed dress.
