Winterizing a bandage dress

Last week, I posted about winterizing a cotton summer dress. This week, I winterized the bandage dress I received late last fall from The Kewl Shop by layering a cozy sweater over the dress.

I really liked the mix of textures and the mix of proportions with this outfit. I also liked the effect of the flared dress hem peeking out of the sweater. I felt like this would be a great modern version of a Judy Jetson outfit!

Details:  Butterfly-print bandage dress:  c/o The Kewl Shop {exact}  /  Black turtleneck sweater:  Fashion-swapped with Stephanie {very similar}  /  Blue leggings:  Spanx via Macy’s {almost exact from same brand}  /  Tall black boots:  Marc Fisher via Macy’s {almost exact from same brand}  /  Lapis lazuli stud earrings:  Gift from mom, old {very similar}

By the way, if you’re wondering why you’ve never seen this cozy black sweater on the blog before, that’s because it’s new. Or, it’s new to me. My friend and colleague Stephanie was about to donate some of her clothes, so I went over to her house for some friendly fashion-swapping. It was one-sided, though, so maybe I should call it “fashion-getting.” 😉 I’ll have more details in my monthly closet adventures post.

Definitely a work outfit on the more casual side for me, but I wasn’t teaching that day or going to any meetings, so I felt comfortable wearing this outfit. The blue leggings were warmer than tights, and the bandage dress (which is more of a tunic on me) still provided enough coverage. The blue color of the leggings also brought out the blue tones in the print of the dress.

Here are different ways I’ve worn this bandage dress so far:

And last but not least, a jump for joy for remixing my bandage dress! 😉

      Hi Jane — I love it when a fellow librarian finds my blog! And yay for color! It’s also cool that we’re both on the west coast of North America. 🙂

      These Spanx leggings are great — I now have Spanx leggings in brown, blue, and berry. The wide waistband is so comfortable.
