As I've stated time and again: I'm a minimalist. I prefer the ease of summer dressing when looking pulled together means throwing on a dress and a pair of sandals, not to mention the ability to walk out your front door without getting frostbite or at least a runny nose from the cold temperatures. But fall and winter are "more is more" times. More gatherings of your friends, more delicious food often at said gatherings, more color outside of your window, more bills as you turn on your heat and require more electricity, and more layers of clothing. In fact, the only thing you seem to have less of is daylight and perhaps cash in your wallet--those Christmas presents and stocking stuffers add up quick. Today's outfit is definitely an illustration of that concept: dress and cardigan and jacket, scarf and tights and socks. There is a little bit of a pattern clash between the scarf and dress, but I kept my color palette limited to avoid looking too busy. Still undecided if I achieved that goal.
