So, grudgingly, I pulled out my tights and got to layering. Since I'm working with a limited wardrobe here, I thought about how I could take this one shirtdress and layer it for varying degrees of chilliness. So here's one printed shirt dress styled for cool, cooler, and cold temps.
For cool weather, I kept it simple and just added a pretty necklace and ankle booties.
For chillier days (like today), I'd keep the dress, booties, and necklace, but I'd add a warm sweater and tights.
Finally, when it's downright frigid, add a blazer and a chunky knit cowl scarf. Maybe even try a pair of fleece-lined tights! (I plan to get some this year--any recommendations?)

And when all else fails, put on your dinosaur pajamas and stay inside! (Jona wanted in on the picture taking action.)
How do you layer a dress when it's cold out?
