Week #2 is an ongoing effort to dress when the weather is brutally cold. I find that I'm liking wearing dresses more and more, for the speed and the uncomplicated sleekness they bring.
Someone asked me about tights... Tights should be as easy and as comfortable as leggings or yoga pants. (Yoga pants especially are considered the most comfortable garments ever made!) Keep trying different brands and sizes of tights until you find some that don't dig into any part of your body, but rather hug you warmly and softly. You will then be able to pop on a dress in a heart-beat and be read to roll!
Some of you were interested in where my goodies were purchased, so I'm including a caption that shows brands. I will include a link ONLY if the item is still available...

My pink crystal earrings are shown on the Boticca website as clip-ons, but if you contact the designer, she will happily make up the earrings with posts instead. Most of the designers on Boticca are VERY open to collaboration in order to make sure you get exactly what you want.

I'm really happy with my wardrobe... some of these things (like my pumps, and my Etro scarf) are over 10 years old, but I don't enjoy wearing them any less after all this time. Knowing that I have a well thought out wardrobe to turn to when I'm getting dressed makes every day a little bit easier, and a bit more filled with beauty and delight.
