Winter Sunshine

(Hat: Gift from the boyfriend, Cardigan: Thrifted, Dress: Vintage, Socks: Forever 21, Oxfords: Le Bunny Bleu)

Maybe it's just the winter blues...but I've been missing summer lately. There is no snow here this year and instead it's just been sad, grey clouds almost all of the time. I can't wait to start wearing dresses and sandals again, and soaking up the sun! Of course I can still wear summery clothes and make it work for winter! I thought I would try the sock-over-tights trick with this look and I really love how it looked. The pattern on the socks are so cute and I think it really contrasts well against the black. And how cute are socks with oxfords?? I really couldn't resist ;)
I will eventually be selling this dress once I get the measurements for it, so those of you who love it as well...stay posted! 
Have a wonderful weekend all of you...and HELLO NEW FOLLOWERS! :)
