How To Wear A LWD In Winter


Is February over with yet? 

 I've been feeling unmotivated and uninspired this month.  Between losing my grandfather, the anniversary of my father's death, the bitter cold, and all the snow we're buried in, its been a tough one.  Although I usually love getting dressed and heading out with the twins, these past weeks have mostly been spent at home wearing leggings and big sweaters.  This past Sunday the sun came out and temps were in the 30's (it felt like spring here in Boston).  For the first time in days, I had a smile on my face, and the urge to pull out a little white dress (LWD) and get out of the house.

The LWD is a staple everyone should have in their closet along with the LBD.  Whether it's a classic fitted shift, or a sweet lace one, the white dress is an easy throw on that adds a little cheer on a dreary day.  White lace will be prominent this spring, as it was shown in a lot of the spring/summer collections, and I was happy to pull this dress out of my closet.  Wearing this dress gave me hope for a new month, and spring weather right around the corner.  However, since it's still  the dead of winter, I made it appropriate to wear now by adding a black leather jacket and tights, then  finishing the look with booties.  I also think flat over the knee boots would look great with this outfit.








 I want to apologize for the lack of outfit posts.  Between the bitter cold temps and all the snow, it's been hard to get outside and shoot.  Especially when you have to lug around two babies with you!  I'm heading to Florida next week (can't wait) and am excited to shoot some great content there.  I'm also praying then when I return  most of the snow will be gone..... I know, wishful thinking.

  2. Rachel, I am reading a few of your older posts and am so happy to do so. I am glad I discovered your blog when I did. This outfit is great. Thanks for the tip. I definitely have to try a LWD paired with Black when it is Wintery out.

    And I am truly sorry about both your father and grand-father. That must have been very hard for you. All of my parents are deceased now and getting the news each time has been so sad.

    Hope your week is off to a great start and you are feeling better. <3 Ada.
