SUMMER TO WINTER: COLORBLOCK YEAR-ROUND. Remember this summer colorblock outfit? I reused most of the pieces and color scheme but made it cold weather-appropriate because spring has sprung back into winter. By throwing on a purple sweater and black faux leather tights underneath, this pairing has become more cozy and a bit more interesting. The leather leggings are more matte in person but they photograph all liquidy. Cool-like. JJ and I explored around the neighborhood for interesting photo locations and we found someone's house that had a cool archway. Hahaha by now I've used all sorts of neighbor's architecture as backgrounds xD Don't tell anyone, but this outfit was from late February (2/28) ... talk about needing to get rid of this backlog of posts!

Dude. My hair was sooo different back then.
teacups and arch friends are silver and gold archways and mainstays woven +coat golden snake skip, hop, butterscotch my new fave spot scarecrow coat arms horizon
Readers - how do you make your summer pairings warm for winter?

old photos or not, this is a cute outfit! i really love the pleated skirt the best. :)

lot of layering is necessary for turning a summer dress into a suitable winter dress, that's all i can say on the matter!!

Yay for cool borrowed backdrops.

Color blocking looks awesome. As for the real Clockwork Orange, that book is insanity. I still can't wrap my mind around it and probably never will.
