I enjoy "winterizing" my vintage/vintage inspired wardrobe, probably because it doesn't take more than an added layer to be fully prepared here in California. I have quite the collection of cardigans, which get lots of use this time of year. This blue toile Bernie Dexter dress has always been a favorite and I was more than excited to style it for this time of year. Some people think light blue/pastels are only for spring, but when put this outfit together my mind immediately thought, "ice queen". I consider that a compliment!

Brooch- Deer Arrow
I was ridiculously excited to get this Deer Arrow snowflake brooch in the mail. Unfortunately, once it came to me from Australia it had broken into four pieces. I was heartbroken! The ladies behind Deer Arrow were more than helpful and offered to send me a replacement. Until the new one comes I'll be sporting this extremely delicate super glued version. Their new holiday brooches are incredibly cute and I can't wait to show you some more later this month!
