colder weather, warmer weather

Are you longing for warmer weather? Here on the central coast of California, it seems we’ve hardly had winter at all. The mornings are chilly and we’ve had a couple rainy days–but it’s mostly been unseasonably warm. Which is beautiful but we need rain desperately! There is some in the forecast and we’re praying it comes.

I found this dress at Anthropologie and it’s such an easy, versatile style. Perfect for layering or wearing alone on a warm day. I’m linking up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for some fashion inspiration.

Boots and a cargo jacket make for perfect rain wear–especially if it’s a warm rain. Then sandals and a denim jacket work for warmer days.

These boots were Christmas gift from Steve three years ago–and I still love them They’re from Fossil.

And I love dress with pockets, don’t you?

The small floral print and coral color on this dress work well for any season.

You know I love anything with a denim jacket. So easy.

And I’ve been wearing these open toed booties almost every day. Although if it rains this week, I won’t be able to wear them!

The dress this way is perfect for church or lunch with friends.

And one of my all time favorite necklaces–the family tree. I’m so happy to be part of my sweet little family!

Do you layer up summer dresses in colder weather?


  1. This dress is so flattering on you! I’ve been wearing my denim jacket a lot lately…although it is still cold enough here in maine that I need a winter coat over it all to go out. 🙂

  2. Hi there! I came to you through the linkup, and I love your whole outfit. The dress is such a pretty color, it looks great with your hair. I also like both looks and how you can accomodate between it being “winter” and Spring. I am in NC, so it has been pretty mild too. IF you can, pop over to see me at

  3. I am longing for warmer weather. the high here in Boston today is 25. I am sick of corduroys, long sleeve shirts and sweaters!

  4. Love the dress with the Fossil boots. You need layers here…not because it’s cold outside (most of the time anyway) but because …if it’s warm, the AC inside will be cold, if it’s cold out…it’s too hot inside with the heat…as a result…cardigans are always a good choice. Hope you get some of that much needed rain.
