Jeanne says: It feels so good to find the perfect cold weather dress; prerequisites include warm fabric (check), flattering shape (check), long enough for older fashionista (check), versatility (check), and good price (check). I love this dress — it can go to a party or to work, serve as a cocktail dress or a jumper. Above all, it feels so good to wear bright florals in the winter time.

Kate didn’t find the perfect cold weather floral print dress, so she adapted one to brighten up her winter wardrobe. I would never have thought of this, but her dress works with chambray and boots and would work equally well with a dressier sweater or jacket for a more dress up occasion. Well, maybe not in 6 degree weather, but well before springtime!

Kate says: This is one of my favorite warmer-weather dresses, and I wanted to try to adapt it for the winter. By keeping my tights light and adding a chambray shirt, I felt warm enough, but also felt very bright and springy! It was a nice change of pace from heavy sweater and black tights.

Mom looks so retro cute, doesn’t she?? She’s showing another key way to winterize a summery dress, by adding a belted cardigan. Her kitten heel d’orsay flats and cat eye glasses add quite a bit of cheek too. I probably would have worried about looking too retro, but I love how Mom just dives right in.

    Florals are my fave!! I love wearing summer pieces in the winter. All it takes is a simple cardigan or pair of leggings/tights and voila! A cute and colorful outfit! You both look gorgeous!
