H&M dress

Shop the look:

Battling the wind has not been something I have had to do in a long time..or battling any weather in general, I suppose. I’ve been rather spoiled. But there are some outfits I think work well when the weather isn’t exactly perfect. And this old H&M dress is just one of those such pieces.

I love the way this dress moves. Believe it or not, I wasn’t even trying to twirl in any of these photos…the dress and the wind were doing all the work for me. And given the number of times this dress has shown up on my blog in the past 6 months (here & here, too), I think it’s safe to say it’s one of my favorites.

Pairing it with purple tights and purple lipstick wasn’t something I had initially planned to do. Haha. But my black tights were in the wash, and I’ll take any chance I can get to wear purple lipstick! I don’t mind the extra pop of color, though. I don’t know if I’ll ever wear the black tights with this outfit again, actually.

On a side note, I have no idea why there are cans stacked up in this building in the windows. Haha. Or if I was trespassing or not when I took the photos (whoops!). These were taken when I was visiting my brother-in-law and sister-in-law in a super tiny town of about 200 people in Northeastern Wisconsin. πŸ™‚

Target booties

Also, I swear I do own shoes other than these black booties I have been wearing nonstop. I also own a whole ton of purses, other than my studded lips purse…but the majority of my shoes and purses are currently in boxes after this last move to Wisconsin. And with the holidays this past week, I had no opportunities to dig through the boxes. But that’s ok, I love these booties and this purse oh so much (in case you couldn’t tell)! I’ll get some more variety in my posts eventually – I promise!

Do you have any favorite windy day outfits? And how was everyone’s holiday events last week? Let me know in the comments!

    Loveeeee this outfit! I’m always a fan of colored tights and I try and wear them whenever possible! The weather is still crazy warm here so I don’t need to wear tights… I wore them on Christmas but got too hot. How crazy is that? I hope you had a great holiday!

      Aw thank you, Lee! This year I’ve been wearing colored tights every opportunity I get. πŸ™‚ And that is crazy! I’m in Wisconsin right now, but it looks like if I had been back in New Jersey I wouldn’t have needed tights either. I hope you had a great holiday too! πŸ™‚

      Thank you, Laurie! H&M is the pretty awesome.. I didn’t do nearly enough shopping there when I had the chance (there aren’t much for physical stores here in Wisconsin). And oh yes longer skirts are definitely a better idea lol. If I hadn’t been wearing some thick tights under this dress I probably wouldn’t have chanced it in a windy day haha.

    I know wind can be a bloggers enemy, but when it works so well toyour advantage, like twirling thos dress, then it’scompletely awesome! I love the purple tights with this. The pop of color is really nice and adds an extra dimension to it. I hope yu had a great Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year!

    Purple and silver looks great together! Love this whole look. The wind made the “twirling” effect fun, haha. I hear you though…I’d almost rather pose in freezing cold weather than wind because some skirts just go kind of nuts in photographs with the wind. Trying to work with it is always best though, which you did great! XO
