Today's Everyday Fashion: The Red Dress

Inspiration:  J.Crew

Inspiration: J.Crew

Navy coat, red dress, plaid scarf
Plaid scarf, red shift dress, cognac boots

This old red shift dress is cute as a button, but I'm limited to how I can wear it. One of the first times I wore it, my statement necklace nicked it so I like to cover that area up. This J.Crew photo was just the inspiration I needed to layer on a plaid scarf and give me a new way to cover it. It may seem silly to have boots with no sleeves, but this is exactly what you see here in Florida during the winter. You don't want to be hot, but you also crave fall and winter type clothes. Navy tights or those thick boot socks that peek out the top (plus a thick navy cardigan) would finish this off nicely for cooler weather!
