I don't have a lot of clothes clean at the moment. Between being gone all last week and again this weekend I just am running out of the stuff I like to wear. I am trying to branch out a bit. I always think of this as a "summer" dress. I just layered it to be a bit warmer.

Are you a "seasonal" clothing person? Is there fabrics you avoid in summer as opposed to winter?

For years I kept summer and winter clothes apart and would pack up the other and put it away for a few months. The last 2 or 3 years I haven't done that and instead tried to wear clothes all through the year. I won't wear velvet in summer and I don't wear white dresses in winter. I don't do uber bright sundresses in winter either. (I have a couple LOUD colored ones, marimekko and hawaiian)

These I wouldn't wear in winter, but that is just me and my comfort level.

PS can I just say I have the best friends a girl could ever ask for. Look what my little Anna Lisa sent me today.

i used to be a very season dresser, but now, for the most part, i will wear whatever, whenever. obviously, im not wearing heavy sweaters in the middle of summer, but thats for comfort, not style. i have no qualms about layering summer pieces in winter, if i like the look. if it gets me more mileage out of my wardrobe, im all for it!

Houndstooth and red are such a marvelous combo. And I'm drooling over those shoes!

Yeah, I tend to be a bit of a seasonal dresser. Cotton voile and linen are my biggies - only summer! And velvet in the dead of winter.

I love Houndstooth, looks fab with red and that dress! I am a seasonal dresser for the most part, but I love the third floral dress so much I would for shizzle wear that in the winter with tights and a long sleeve shirt. Glad you are back.

This is super duper wonderful.

I am not a seasonal dresser. I will wear almost anything layered in winter and un-layered in Summer. But that's mostly to do with the fact that I'm in Texas and the weather is pretty mild.

I kind of feel like, for where I live, seasonal dressing isn't really necessary. I have heavy sweaters that, obviously, I don't wear all year but that's about it. We always have breakthrough nice days in the winter so I never pack away my spring/summer clothes. And I always go to the beach in the summer and on the more Northern Coast it can get cold at night, so I keep sweaters out all year too.

Oh man I forgot how much I love those sandals of yours. And that floral dress with the yellow heels is AMAZING.

My cashmere, sweaterdresses, and long socks definitely get packed away for the winter, but other than that, most stuff stays out. Have I mentioned that it's really excellent how much color you wear? It is.

I definitely have seasonal pieces. I'm trying to get as much use out of my things as I can all year long, but certain things (corduroy, cotton sundresses) belong only in certain seasons!

No, I wouldn't say I do. I mean, tartan and plaid is worn throughout the year. YOU look fab, btdubs!

Living in FL where we only have one season (hot and hotter) I change color, shape and texture rather than fabric types for different seasons. Fall and winter are dark colors, 3/4 sleeves, button ups and light sweaters in rich jewel-tones. Spring and Summer gravitate toward light flowy dresses and skirts in brights and white. Prints rule year around. I also lean towards light blazers in the cooler months and sleeveless styles in the warmer months.

I LOVE the houndstooth with the chambray & red. You look fantastic.

I tend to be a seasonal dresser only because of storage issues - I have half a closet and half a dresser to store my clothes in. So cold and warm weather gets swapped out as needed.

I'm definitely a seasonal dresser. Florals, light colors, linens...all that crap wouldn't DARE make itself seen in the winter. It knows better.

LOVE the red shoes!
