favorite bear dress

When I first wore this dress, I knew exactly how to style it for warm weather. I wasn't so sure how to style it for colder weather, however. For one, the bears are navy, so my typical black tights wouldn't work. (I still can't bring myself to pair navy and black together, in any form.) Navy tights would work, but with what shoes? I tend to have a hard time picking out the right shoe to wear. Do you ever run into the same problem?

While I'm not sure this is the most teacher-like outfit, I decided the blazer made it professional enough. Do you have any other ideas for how I can style this (casual or business casual)  for colder weather?

Occasion: Teaching
Dress: Anthropologie [super super splurge]
Blazer: The Limited [save, spend]
Tights: The Limited [exact]
Boots: Not Rated via DSW [exact]


  1. I really like this outfit! I didn't realize the bears were navy, that is tricky. It totally works with the navy tights and cognac boots, but I'm trying to think of other ideas and I'm drawing a blank! I'm sure you will think of something!

  2. I would be stuck in that exact position if I had that dress (super cute, by the way). I hope you'll keep us posted when you come up with other combinations.

  3. I love the way you styled the dress here!! Comfy but polished.
    I'm the same way about navy and black--I just can't bring myself to wear them together.

  4. Lovely dress! :)

  5. Oh my gosh I am still in love with this dress. Before I scrolled down to see your outfit I though, wear boots with your navy tights. But boom, you were a step ahead of me. I really like this entire outfit, I think you did a great job styling it for cooler weather.

  6. What do you think about pairing gray tall boots with the dress? Navy is always a little tricky! Love the blazer added to the dress. A long cardigan would be a good, but more casual look too!

  7. Adorable!!! I love this combo :) The dress is too cute.


  8. I think I would've styled it the same way too. You could also try grey tights with the same boots and maybe adding a scarf with some grey/navy?


  9. i think you did a great job making this dress work appropriate!! the navy blazer is perfect and i think even pairing with some ankle boots or pumps would work too! very cute print!

    cute & little

  10. I think you made it work! I love that you have that dress because, even though I don't know you in real life, I feel like it's "you" :)

    Do you have any brown tights? If you wore it with brown tights and brown boots then you could pretty much do anything as far as a jacket/cardigan goes.

  11. I actually love the way you styled this! But I think you could also go gray? Definitely shades of brown, though!
