March is going to be a big month for As Time Goes…Buy. It’ll be all about transitions, which makes it a perfect time to start a new series – “Now and Later”. It’s not quite March, but I thought if I do the NOW component…well…now, we could begin our transitioning.
The whole idea for this series is transitioning between seasons with items in your wardrobe. I’m all about getting as much use as possible out of what I purchase to drive down the cost per wear. Which makes it economical to wear items of clothing across seasons. With “Now and Later”, I plan to show you how I am wearing a look or item now and how I will be wearing it in the opposite season. That way if you are in either hemisphere you might find some inspiration appropriate for your location.
For the first in our “Now and Later” Series – the T-shirt Dress.
T-Shirt Dress: This is a recent purchase from Boohoo.com. I knew I wanted it for many reasons, 1)it was on sale, 2) love the polka dots, 3) love the colour, just as oxblood was popular in the northern hemisphere for winter I am expecting it to be here in the southern hemisphere coming winter, 4) the length is great, just below the knee, 5) it’s a t-shirt dress! Can you say comfort?!
Accessories: Even though it is late summer, I opted for darker accessories to work with the black polka dots of the dress. I have to get a little more summer wear out of my black suede wedges, so they got the call up. Then my black quilted handbag, black and copper bracelets, a multi-chain necklace, Rose gold Marc Jacobs watch and my rose gold ball earrings. Because it is still quite warm, bare legs and arms keep me cool in this form-fitting dress. Plus, as it’s a cotton t-shirt fabric, it breathes.
Next time you see this dress, I’ll do a winter version. Any thoughts on how I might style this dress for winter?
That’s my t-shirt dress. The first item in my new series “Now and Later”.
