Look Book: Snowy Strolls & Cozy Dresses...

Feb 2, 2012

Sheesh! It took forever to choose photos for this post... it's kind of hard sorting through photos of yourself sometimes - talk about indecisive! Do you guys ever have those moments?! Hehe, moving along, this week I've been non-stop with the cozy & relaxed looks, but it suits my entrepreneurial lifestyle perfectly. On the flip side, I'm known (ask Martin) to totally over-dress for non-glamorous things like buying groceries. Ha, what can I say? Some days, I'm all about dressing for mood rather than function.
I was so excited to buy this dress from my sweet friend Tieka of Selective Potential. I love when other bloggers set up "shop my closet" online stores - such a swell idea! As for the styling of the dress? Although it's definitely a summer piece, I decided to give it a more winterized look by pairing it with my cable knit tights & fave textured knits. If you'd like to see Tieka's summer version, you can view it here: "Coast Guard City!" Absolutely adorable, right?!
This weekend, Martin & I are off to visit our friends in the city. They just moved into a new townhouse which they had professionally decorated - SO fun! I can't wait to see it and hopefully nab a few inspirations for our place. And being the fashion dork that I am, my outfit is all planned out. I'm hoping to wear my newly ordered Jackie boots from Blowfish, which I'll of course be sharing in an outfit post next week. Yay! I'm obsessed with boots this season. Happy almost Friday, friends! xo

    I know what you mean about choosing photos, although I usually have a hard time because my eyes are half closed in half of them or I look like a deer in headlights.

  3. cute outfit!! I think summer can mix with winter time jejeje the style it´s more edgy :D

  4. I totally do the same thing on our weekend walks with the dog, Mike's always like "were just walking the dog, you don't need to change out of your sweats into your jeans and boots.." You just never know!

  11. I still haven't picked out photos from my last couple of daily styles and they were from over two weeks now, haha! So I completely understand about being indecisive :)

    I must say I am super jealous of your cardigan! I am desperately in love with long comfy cardigans and yours just looks so wonderfully perfect!

  12. Very cute outfit! Love your knit hat!

  13. i hate picking photos of myself.. i really over think it and pick holes in them lol!
    I love dress/cardi/hat combos, they look so pretty and practical. Im also loving boots this winter as i can wear socks and tights to keep my tootsies warm hee hee!:D
    Have a lovely trip to your friends.

  14. love how you paired a cardigan over a spring-ish dress to make it a winter outfit! :)

  15. Cute post. I am totally with you! I overdress all the time too. But, I'm a mood dresser and sometimes that's just what my mood calls for :)

  16. such a pretty dress, love florals in the winter :)
    xo Cara

  17. love the way you winterized the dress .. the boots you are getting are great ... gotta love Blowfish shoes!!

  18. Very cute outfit. Boots are definitely my go-to for the winter season. I love making summery stuff good for winter.


  19. Love these muted oatmeal-y colours with the bit of floral. Such a cute hat too, great with your hair.

  20. Such an adorable outfit! I remember seeing that dress over at Selective Potential and loving it! It definitely channels spring, but I love how you winterized it with the chunky knits, tights, and boots. Adorable!

  21. Aw, I love this outfit. The colors in that dress are beautiful. <3

    I've been known to totally over dress, too. My favorite thing to get dressed up for is going out to the movies. My family thinks it's silly since the theater is dark, but there's just something about going to the movies that makes me want to don a gorgeous frock and some rockin' heels! Doubly so if we go to the movies at night. And then there are days like today when I'm wearing a cardigan, boot cut jeans and Converses. Much as I love to dress up, sometimes comfort wins. ;-)

  22. love ur whole look...u look so pretty ....simply blossoming like a flower
    BTw NEW POST in my blog & if u like we can follow each other in twitter!!let me know;


  23. those are my fave shoes ever! and i love the print of your dress...so darling!! then again, you always look darling, friend. ;)

    Have a beautiful day!

  27. Love the dress for a winter look. As a displaced Floridian living in the Northeast, I've had to learn to make sundresses work in the cold.

  33. Ha! I always have the hardest time choosing pictures of myself. I can analyze them for hours (it seems). And, I also tend to overdress for not-so-important events. I totally dress for my mood.. I think dressing up makes a girl just feel happy and pretty. :)

    Your pictures are gorgeous! And I love your outfit from head to toe.


  34. So pretty!! Love the boots paired with the dress - amazing!

    ox from NYC!


  35. Love this! Super cute dress + cozy knit = no fail!

    xo Jennifer


  36. Too cute!!


  37. Gorgeous outfit, miss! I love how you took such a summery dress and added other pieces to achieve a Winter-y, comfy, cozy look. You rock! :D

    Have fun visiting your friends!!!

  38. I absolutely LOVE how you styled this dress! Your winter version is so cute - the cable knits match perfectly :)


  39. Aw, I love that this dress came from Tieka's closet. We bloggers go through so many clothes, it's so nice to get your hands on a piece you've admired on someone else - especially when it comes straight from them, and they've run out of ways to wear it. That's one of the best parts of blogging, I think - see old reused and revitalised by new people. You did a beauiful job dressing this up for winter, the print is just stunning up close and it really shines again the neutral shades. Sounds like you have a lovely weekend ahead my friend - see you so soon!

  40. What a beautiful outfit! I have that cardigan, I believe, so thank you for the inspiration

  41. You are just absolutely gorgeous!
    And you have the sweetest style. :)
    Your girly looks are spot on and always make me happy to see because you have that perfectly cute, feminine style <3
    That dress is such a wonderful print! Tieka has great taste haha. Love how you winterized it! So adorable and cozy looking.
    Haha, and yes, some days I just feel like dressing up for no reason at all. My parents think I'm crazy!


  42. Such a cute floral dress, look great.


  43. You look so pretty, Veronika! I really like how you winterized this beautiful summer dress! The tights and cardigan are a perfect winter touch! And I am secretly wishing for a snow as well... :)
    Good luck!


  44. loving the white tights on you lady! and yes, i have the same problem with photos in general, which ones to blog? xx

  45. hey veronika! you're looking like spring in winter. :) will your friends let you take photos of their townhouse? or maybe you can show us how you get inspired, by what you see? yes photo selecting can be very difficult.

  46. You look so cute. I can't believe that card is from H&M, it looks too cozy!!! I love getting dressed up to go to the grocery store. My dad always makes fun of me, but I do it anyway.

  47. the exposure on these photos is gorgeous, I love the lighting! very pretty dress too :) I always have the hardest time picking blog pictures too!! And that sounds like such a fun little trip. I would absolutely love to professionally decorate some spaces. Interior decorating seems so interesting!!

  48. I love that dress! It looks so great on you.

  49. Love the outfit! Looks cute and cozy. :)

  50. great photos ! you look super cute !
    love the whole outfit



  51. You winterized this dress perfectly, and I'm a little obsessed with the Jackie boots you ordered. Think I might have to get myself a pair!

  52. You did such a great job on 'winterizing' this dress! It looks fantastic with the neutrals and browns. Really a very lovely look!

    And yes, I totally know how hard it can be sometimes to pick the right pictures for a post. Usually we take some silly pictures too, and they're quite funny, but I'm too "shy" to post them. Don't want to make myself look like a crazy person! ;-)

    Happy Friday!! xo


  53. i sometimes have immense dread to go through a gazillion photos that Sean or i have taken. it's overwhelming and i completely understand your dillemz; especially b/c i can't imagine there'd be a bad one in the bunch. these picks of pics are fabulous fun! yah to dressing up and strolling the grocery aisles : ) Sean has said the same thing to me and asked for some toning down. um, like that's gonna happen!

    you've winterized Tieka's dress (now yours!!!) up beautifully. i really admire how you compose these looks. the way your mind hatches ideas needs to be bottled asap. so great!!!

    adventure date sometime soon does sound fab, i'm feeling kinda sneaky about it b/c you and Martin always have so much fun on your walking shoots. i'd like Sean to get infused with some of that energy. he's been a bit of a stick in the mud lately with photo things. help?!

    happy weekend to you both! xo ♥

  54. I love that dress!!

    Come and check my GIVEAWAY!!!



  55. I love this dress, you look absolutely gorgeous! Tieka has some really cute things to choose from, like a month ago I bought some nice things from her and I can't wait to style them. I know what you mean by choosing your pictures for an outfit post, i'm always having a hard times choosing the best one, haha!

  56. I know exactly what you mean about having a hard time to choose photos! I take so many of the same pose, yet they are really different! :)
    I absolutely love your outfit! You are so gorgeous ahh. :) I also love it when other bloggers open online shops! I wish my size wasn't so "out there" so I could wear items from my favorite bloggers like that :(!

  57. You look so pretty!!! I love your cozy cardigan. I often overdress for unimportant outings as well. I spent an hour getting ready to go to the pet store last week lol. All I needed was cat food.

  58. Pretty Pretty!!! I almost bought that dress from her shop and I went back to actually buy it and it was gone!!! hahaha!!! Well, your doing the dress justice by making it look super cute with your personality :)

  59. You are SOOO adorable!!
    I love this outfit <3

  60. I love how you have styled this. I have huge issues with sorting through pictures of myself. It's really hard and you're always far more picky when dealing with pictures of yourself than with other people. Anyway. Thank you for the amazing inspiration on how to style a summer dress! Your boots are gorgeous...

    I Can Be Many Things

  61. Your hat is adorable! I recently purchased one similar to it, but in pink with rhinetones, and your pictures are making me crave wearing it more often!

  62. I think the best word to describe this outfit would be sweet. Because it really is! The colors, the texture, and the lifestyle it represents all point to sweet!! I love it! :)

    Cup of Tea

  63. i do believe that dress was made for you! the bright colors and floral print..and paired so perfectly with that cardigan.
    i totally feel you on the overdressing for not so fancy occasions...i am a teacher and i don't wear a lot of my nicer things to school so when we go out for simple errands i like to play dress up! :)

  64. Such a cute dress and what a lovely look :)

  71. You look very cute in this floral dress! I love how you winterized the look with the cool boots and hat.
    I know what you mean about dressing for mood. I feel like I do that more often than not and I'm overdressed for things 90% of the time. Oh well!
