OOTD- Summer Layered

I have it in my head that I need an orange dress for winter. Especially after seeing this cute and simple DvF number and let me not talk about the awesome back detail on this Tibi dress. I saw someone wearing it last week and it made me love it even more. Alas, the only orange dress I have is a t-shirt dress that I picked up at H&M over the summer, but I found a way to make it work for the chilly weather by adding some layers. Since it isn't ridiculously cold yet, I styled it with a tee instead of a sweater and put on some cable-knit tights. Can I tell you how excited I am to go crazy and layer whatever I can in my closet? If I start looking like a third Olsen twin (except not really), it might be time for concern. In the meantime, I will be layered up and cozy.

Speaking of the Olsen twins, are you guys signed up for StyleMint yet? If not, you should. Do it here!! I have way too many t-shirts in my closet, so when StyleMint came around I figured I probably wouldn't be buying anything, but this is number three. I love the patterns, colors and design elements of their selection which is why I have added only more tops to the current toppling tower.

Do you have any toppling towers going on in your closet? What can't you stop buying all the time?

Outfit Details:
Open back t-shirt- StyleMint "Pacific"- Limited sizes available here, similar here and tee with interesting detail here)
Orange dress- H&M (pretty sleeveless number here, silkier version here, similar here)
Brown suede platforms- Charlotte Ronson (similar here in an interesting texture, similar here, simpler style here)
Leopard fedora- Albertus Swaneopol for Target (available here, similar here with wider brim, similar here with just a touch of leopard)
