PLEATED LAYERS / Turtleneck layering to turn a spring/summer dress into a winter one

pleated skirt dress winter outfits idea
Good morning!  A little DIY and fashion inspiration on the blog today.  I was casually browsing the After Xmas sales and stumbled upon this gorgeous Milly dress and couldn't take my eyes off it.  I found myself leaving the window open just so I can click back every couple minutes to gaze lovingly at the dress.  It continued to haunt me through the weeks as it would show up under the "Customers also viewed" frame to the right and like the first time I would click and stare longingly.  Sometimes I want an instant gratification and this was one of those so I thought of pieces in my closet that I could combine that would create a similar look and this is what I came up with.  It isn't the same (or even close) but it will do.

Plastic Island turtleneck dress w/ pleated bottom underneath (old; turtleneck tops like this or this would suffice) /
Pour La Victoire 'Case' pumps (the Blahniks here, a nice alternative under $150 and loving this two-tone t-strap pair) /

Navy and dark purple combinations remind me of bruises and I got a lot of those yesterday.  I kept tripping and bumping into our stairs, ouch.  Here's to a less clumsy day!  Happy Tuesday, take care!
