Today our gorgeous sunny weather was replaced by soggy coldness, making extra layers an absolute necessity. Not only that, but this vintage scooter dress is downright see-through and needs something under it for the sake of modesty, not to mention good taste. As the weather gets warmer I'll have to think of some lighter layers to line it with.

The upside of today's lousy weather was that it gave me another opportunity to wear my new vintage cape, though the busy pattern of the dress kept me from wearing it plaid-side out (I'm determined to wear it that way the next time). I foolishly left the detachable hood at home, a big mistake on a rainy day on which I also forgot my umbrella.

Hurrah for the cape! Boo for the rain.

Wow, I really like the top dress worn with the Mia boots. It's thematic, but not overly so, and the turtleneck underneath is a really cute add.
