How to wear a summer dress in December

how to wear a summer dress in December

I wore this dress last summer just once! I love it to much and that’s why I wear this summer dress in December!

But first:

I like to go to concerts. And therefore also to a festival as you could read here. I love the atmosphere and to sing along. I don’t necessarily have to go to a concert to sing along. Friday is always my cleaning day and that is paired with pretty loud music and singing along! I don’t believe that my neigbours hear it ….. at least I hope so. 

Last week we went to a Kim Wilde concert with a couple of friends and my sister and her boyfriend! We also got tickets for Iron Maiden next year, btw! And the night after that concert, we went to Colin Blunstone. That was a gift for Gerben. It was his birthday a few weeks ago. I always have such anticipation of these kinds of surprises. Because I know he really wants to go there. He has been to a Colin Blunstone concert twice before. But Colin Blunstone does not perform in our neighborhood. So then I say: No that is not handy, that far away. You also have to work, so we need to hurry then, etc. Haha, I also arranged a dinner. So first good food and then the concert! Perfect combination.

Why not wear a summer dress in December!black and white with cobalt outfit

Yeah, why not! I wore this dress just once! Don’t know why. Perhaps it has got something to do with the amount of clothes I have…..I don’t feel any shame, I love clothing! But I did buy this blazer pre loved! It was from another brand then the ad said! I hate that, this is a less better quality brand, but still good.

Don’t you just love black and white with cobalt! It is such a good combination. Predictable but good! The boots are from last year. A very high quality Italian boot. I ordered then a few weeks ago also in brown. Got lucky because they were in sale. I wouldn’t buy these if they weren’t in sale. But they are worth it, it is such a elegant classic boot. And the leather is very soft.

How I layer this summer dress
belted cobalt blazer

Well that is not so difficult of course. I always layer a lot in these months. I am wearing a camisole and a basic long sleeve tee, And 60 denier tight. That will do the trick. A cardigan or, like me, a blazer over the dress and it’s winter proof!

I am wearing long pearl earrings and a very old pearl bracelet and a plastic statement blue ring. And my name necklace. I belted the blazer for a more refined style.

I hope you liked my look. Do you wear your summer dresses in winter?black and white striped dressblack leather boots under a black and white dresshow to wear a summer dress in December

    Ooh, you got tickets to see Iron Maiden! Awesome! How sneaky of you to mislead Gerbin into thinking he shouldn’t go to the other concert for his birthday, and then surprise him! Ha! Well done, Nancy.

    I love this blazer over dress look – very classic. I pack away all of my seasonal dresses, but I used to do this with my summer dresses. Now, I just have too many dresses, and don’t keep very many out all year round.

    Have a great week, Nancy!

    Those are the best dresses, right, the ones you can wear all year long with a bit of imagination and creativity. It’s a very feminine dress and looks like a comfortable one too, a combination that is just perfect in my eyes. Enjoy many moments to wear it Nancy. Love, Lieske

      Perhaps because you have a shorter upper body? I have a long upper body so it’s better for me to,,break,,it!

    I like it a lot, Nancy. You’ve styled it well and wear it well. I have a similar looking summer striped dress (candy pink and black stripe, silk, bought at a St. John outlet store for a great price).I just love your boots, what brand are they, if I may ask?

    Well you got the best winter weather apparently. Good for you. And love the blue blazer with the belt. Of course, I wear my summer dress in winter. It would be such a pity not to, right? Your dress suits you soooo well. Nancy. Fijne avond xo Sabina

    I love how you “seasoned” that lovely Summer dress. Wearing that belted jacket over it is just perfect. And you’re right: black and white with cobalt blue is a true classic! How did Gerben like his surprise? xxx

    Iron Maiden…that’s hard core!! I haven’t heard that name in ages.
    I love how you made this work for the winter. I used to have to layer like that. Let me just say, I love the warmer weather in our new state.
