Dresses are my favorite pieces to wear all year round. It’s so easy to style them while getting ready for work or for a date that they are my first option when running behind. I’ve been searching for dresses that I’ll be able to wear on colder days and was lucky to find this plum dress. Besides the color, the straight cut of this piece immediately drew my attention; this style is one that I especially like because of its simplicity. This simplicity allows us to play with the details; in this case, a pair of gloves (not just any gloves, but a pair with a cute ruffle hem) adds a feminine flair to the look. I’ve added a winter white scarf not only to stay warm but to brighten the outfit.

Thank you very much for stopping by!

Have a great week!

    That’s such a pretty dress and I love the plum color on you! Dresses are great, and I’m always thrilled when I find ones in a heavier material for winter that I can pair with tights. Love your gloves, too!
