Short Days, Short Skirts

To take care of a drab wintry day, add a dash of color, right?

I got this dress from a sale on J.Crew's Factory website. It's a pretty flower print and was uber cheap (cause it was on Final Sale). It is just a tad bit on the short side for my comfort level. I think that if I wear this dress in the summer (because it is a very light cotton), it'll have to be with jeans or shorts.  But to make this Virginia winter appropriate, I added a button-down, sweater, and tights. I played the colors off of each other, using the colors in the dress as inspiration. I was going in a different direction with the shoes when I first envisioned the outfit, but they didn't work out. On a lark, I put these wedges on, and voila, it worked!

How do you style short dresses in the winter? Or do you just put them in the back of the closet? Or don't own any short dresses in the first place? :)

Leggings and flats. The flats make the dress look longer and the leggings just make me feel more comfortable! I love the colors here!
