Makeup: Eylure false eyelash strips; Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Luminous Liquid Foundation; Peter Thomas Roth Lashes to Die For The Liner; Clinique Chubby Stick in Super Strawberry; Essie Nail Polish in Wicked. Necklace: Lulu Frost for J.Crew (old--similar here). All photos by Izzy Hudgins

First outfit post in like 100 years, huh? I wore this one for the first night of Alt Summit, and these photos were actually snapped there in Salt Lake City. The very talented Izzy Hudgins took them right before I headed out to a fun party hosted by Munchkin and Small Fry. (And yes, I was cold!)

The cardigan-over-a-sleeveless dress is one of my perennial favorite winter tricks (instant way to get more mileage out of your summer dresses!), and this particular combo has become one of my go-to work outfits.

I love the flattering, fit-and-flare shape of the dress, the sweater is my all-time favorite J.Crew long cardigan, and the boots! Can we talk about these boots? I wear them constantly. They are super comfortable, the chunky heel makes them deceptively easy to walk in, and I love how they make any outfit look so much cooler than a regular pair of heels. They are pricey, yes, but they are seriously the only thing I wear anymore! 

Do you have a favorite tip for wearing warm-weather clothes when it's cold out? I'd love to know!

It doesn't get very cold in L.A. but I sometimes layer a shell underneath a sleeveless dress (and still use the cardigan). You don't look cold in the pics! :)
