On my birthday I was given a few yards of silk jersey. I really like the way strapless dresses look on me, so I created a pattern, and went to work on my “into the woods” dress. I love the print of this dress it’s so whimsical.

I like to “extend seasons” of my wardrobe by adding or taking away certain companion pieces.
Here I am wearing my dress for the summer season, perhaps for a date night with my hubby. I don’t even need a jacket or cardigan where I live in the summer, in fact you would have to be nuts to put one on! can we say humid and hot? 😉 If I were to wear this in a more mild climate in summer, I would probably add a wrap of some sort, or a 3/4 inch sleeve cardi.
I am also wearing a pair of Guess gold strappy sandal heels here. I carry my id, debit cards and money as well as a lip gloss in my cute sequin Coach wristlet.

I like to wear classic gold or silver hoops a lot, because you can actually see them though my hair (I have a lot) I also have on my baby locket, which I have had all my life.

In order to extend my dress from the spring/summer season, into fall and winter, I just add black tights, black booties or boots, a wool beret, and a cardigan. It just so happens that I made the cardigan I am wearing here as well!
|Fall styling for the “into the woods” dress|
I cinched the cardigan in the middle with a black belt, and presto! My summer dress now can carry on into fall! For winter I would add a long black or tan wool coat, along with a nice scarf and gloves.
Do you extend pieces of your wardrobe? If so, which pieces? Join in the fun, and share!
Until next post
