Apparently I am making this my yearly announcement (the last announcement came in January 2013) - Ladies, your maxi dresses/skirts work just as fabulously for Winter as they do for Summer. Layer up the jackets, scarfs, & hide an extra layer of tights underneath… the maxi truly is a year-round staple!

I could live in this dress (& have before) so my arm definitely does NOT have to be twisted to leave it hanging in my closet even in cooler months (thank you polar plunge!)

What Summer look are you surprised to find works equally well during the Fall/Winter months?


  1. so casual and so stylish! love the long dress with the leather jacket!


  2. Fabulous jacket and scarf! You look so beautiful!

  3. That dress seems so comfortable and soft. Gorgeous look!

  10. Perfect outfit! You look amazing!



  11. I love this maxi! So simple and effortless. And you dressed it up really nicely with the leather biker jacket and leopard scarf. Great outfit.

  12. SO gorgeous, Jess! All my maxi dresses and skirts have a very summery feel to them (like orange tie-dye) so they're in storage. But if I had one like yours I would totally wear it all the time.

  13. I'm really sad that I didn't snag this dress earlier this year. I adore it!

  14. Gorgeous! Love the dress and scarf! I actually bought my first maxi dresses specifically FOR winter. I've gained a bit of weight and can't fit my jeans, and it was getting cooler so I knew I couldn't keep up with my shorts and skirts. Maxi dresses seemed like a great choice to stay warm and not worry about being too tight while I try to drop my weight back down. I'm still figuring out how to pair them in winter, but I think since I don't get out much, that when I do, they will be a huge blessing. haha


Thank you for your comments, they make my day!!
