Last week I was so happy that the weather was getting warmer! There has been a plot twist in the weather here but it will be getting warm again soon! Since it was starting to get warmer I could start experimenting with different pieces of clothing rather than having to bundle up with a sweater on. For this look I decided to wear a long, plaid dress from Forever 21 as a long vest over my outfit! I have worn this dress buttoned up by itself before but so far not as a vest.
I layered this dress over two neutral pieces of clothing. I paired my burgundy jeans with a white, long sleeve, burnt out shirt from Delia’s. I also decided to switch it up and instead of wearing black boots I wore a pair of camel ones!
I really like how the plaid dress looked against my white shirt and burgundy jeans. I wanted to add another color into the mix but I did not want anything too bright so I stuck with burgundy.
When I wear long, flowing clothing I like my necklaces to be long as well. For this look I wore my dancing skeleton necklace from Betsey Johnson. Not only did the length of this necklace pair well with the dress but so did the black and gold colors on the locket.
I am really happy with the way this look and experiment turned out! This dress is one of those pieces that are extremely versatile. It can be worn as a dress in the spring and summer with some sandals. It can also be worn as a dress in the fall with a long sleeve shirt, leggings, and boots. Now it can even be styled as a vest over an outfit!
