Rug Up My Summer Dress

Hi everybody! I don’t know about you but I am counting down the days until I can feel the gentle warmth of the Summer sun. I am so bored of my winter wardrobe and am eager to shed the layers and jump into my summer dresses. Being the terribly impatient girl that I am, I thought I’d share with you how to rug up a summer dress. The easiest way to do this is to throw a pair of boots over stockings or thick socks, add a blazer or a coat and finish up with some winter accessories such as a scarf or hat.
Melburnians have been lucky enough to experience some warmer weather and when I say ‘warmer’ I mean not pouring with rain and howling winds. I photographed my below look on a mild winters day. The sun was shining but there was still a slight chill in the air. It was the perfect temperature to rug up a summer dress.  I teamed my new dress (here) with brown stockings, ankle boots and a floppy felt hat. I accessorised with my vintage bag, spike necklace and bracelet. I feel like I could be on an episode of  the television show ‘The Farmer Wants A Wife’ in this outfit.
I have styled some ‘Rug up my summer dress’ looks for you below. Why wait for Spring, let’s move the new season closer by layering over our summer dresses.
