TWENTY-SEVEN/ winter dress

I can't stress my love for dresses enough. As I said in my previous post, I find that they're extremely easy to just throw on in the winter and you don't have to think twice before leaving your house. You will always look chic and polished, no one will have to know you got ready changed in five minutes or less.

I picked up this dress, as well as two others, at Old Navy on Boxing Day. The three dresses in total cost me less than forty-five dollars with the tax. The other colours are orange and black/white striped and I wear them on rotation, with a couple of other dresses, almost exclusively. For this outfit, I paired my dress with my favourite little leopard print cropped jacket. This jacket has become almost life affirming to me to me now. It is one of my favourite pieces of clothing because it can make even the most dull outfit come to life. Everything needs a little bit of leopard print, right? I bought it a couple of years ago and I wear it at least once a week. The colours have started to fade a bit, but other than that it's in really good condition. I don't place a lot of trust into Forever 21 clothing, as it is a fast fashion store, but a few of my finds seem to keep throughout the years. I'm thrilled this jacket hasn't gone on me yet, and I assure you when that day comes I will shed a few tears.

I finished the look with mostly skull accessories (I have an addiction), a few rings and my new (to me) Sperry heeled booties. This, and many different variations of this basic outfit, is something I'm going to be living in for pretty much the rest of the winter.
