Styling Summer Dresses for Winter

Tuesday, January 19

Dress: New Look | Top: Primark | Blazer: New Look | Boots: Dash

I bought this dress in the New Look sale only last week. I think it was probably left over from summer stock but it was only £3 so I couldn't really complain. Obviously I couldn't leave it hanging in my wardrobe for a few months so I decided to layer it so it was more suitable for the minus temperatures we are enjoying at the moment. 

Basic long sleeved tops like these from Primark should be in everyone's wardrobes. I have several in black but got this blue one especially for this outfit. A nice scarf, cosy tights and boots completed the look. To add extra layers I decided to put on this burgundy blazer that doesn't get enough wear and ontop of that I wore my cosy blue duffle coat. I thought it would be good to keep the colours simple with blues and burgundies.

This is what I wore to travel back up to Aberdeen on Friday - nothing fancy because I was going to be sitting on the train and a bus for a while. I'm looking forward to being able to dress it up though. 

Are you following me on Instagram yet? I post more photos from my week there.
