Trial and Error


What:
Sweater Dress- H&M
Faux Fur Vest- Self Made
Belt- Ardenes
Tights- Sirens
OTK Socks- Ardenes
Boots- Winners


With the weather so cold outside I have no choice but to layer.  I started with the sweater dress and then just kept adding layers until I had this outfit.  I can't really decide how much I actually like the results....the otk socks are throwing me off, because usually I love the look of OTK socks, but had yet to try them in a light colour...perhaps if the tights I layered them over weren't so dark I might like them more...or if I kept everything in my outfit light...I will have to try that next time!

In theory this outfit is great, but you're right, the color is a bit off with the OTK socks. Maybe if the shoes were lighter or lighter tights?! Who nows! ;) No guts no glory right?!

I like the look of the socks with the outfit! The white is so school-girl-esque. too cute. Maybe you;d like it better if you opted for taller boots next time? either way, I still like it!

/i love the idea of all the layers, and the otk socks are great...but I do think the color of the socks is what is sort of throwing you off. That sweater dress is so fabulous!!

The vest is one of the prettiest I've seen thus far. It looks great on you and with the sweater dress. I agree that the socks are too light, but otherwise, I love everything else about your outfit.

Love the fur vest, and I also love all the snow you have! Ours is quickly melting away in Indiana. :(

I see what you mean. The whole thing looks great except the OTK socks are a bit off. But then again it is great to take risks and try stuff. Perks of being a fashion blogger right?
