I wear dresses no matter the weather.
On this day, the weather wasn't too bad. It was about 40 degrees and I think that's fair weather. It's not too freezing but it's definitely nowhere near warm. I grew up thinking that once the weather hit 40 degrees, then it was going to be a good day.
I always wear dresses to work. This dress was a little too short for me to wear tights underneath because if I were to bend down, my butt would show. It's a great length but not to the point where it can be a dress. I wear this dress a lot and it was actually longer before I kept washing it, but I still consider it a dress. I bought it for $7 on eBay. A lot of people always look at me weird when I tell them that I buy dresses on eBay. I'll admit, half of them is a hit or miss but I don't mind taking the risk because most of the time, the item is relatively cheap. This dress was a hit. It doesn't feel like cheap fabric whatsoever. It wasn't itchy. It hasn't ripped yet. It was true to size and it wasn't too tight on me. The quality was decent. Similar to Forever 21.
The scarf is from So Good Jewelry. It's a cute little shop in Downtown Crossing but unfortunately, they went out of business last year. They had the cutest scarves and jewelry and most of the scarves I bought were only $5. So affordable. My dress was already a dark evergreen color so I paired it up with a light green & white scarf. I think it totally went together. I think it's fine to mix and match the same color but in different shades. I tend to wear outfits of the same color but in different shades. I think it's fun to see how my outfits turn out and see what shade goes with what.
The leggings are from Forever 21. They're only $5! The leggings there are decent. They're not entirely see-through. You can see a LITTLE bit through. I've seen people wear them as just pants but I was still able to see their underwear line. I recommend wearing a thong or a lace thong if you're going to wear leggings as just pants. My "dress" was long enough to cover my butt so no underwear line or camel toe here. And they're not too thin and not too thick. They're just your average leggings. But I love how tight they are and how they tug my body and outline it.
As for my boots, I wear these from time to time. They're from 599fashion and I bought them back in December. You can see them in THIS POST and THIS POST. And of course, plenty other posts because I did wear them a lot back in September and October.
I wasn’t able to find the exact products I was wearing but I linked alternatives down below if you’re interested!
