Winterizing a Summer Dress

Blazer: H&M | Sweater: Abercrombie (old) | Dress: H&M (see it styled for summer) (similar here) | Scarf: Target | Tights: Hue (similar style here) | Belt: Ann Taylor | Sunglasses: Chloe (currently at an amazing discount) | Boots: Nine West (old, similar here) | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff (similar here) | Necklace: Jenni Jewel

It's about this time of year that I begin to feel a little tired of my winter wardrobe and begin looking longingly at my summer dresses as I pull on my usual sweater, jeans, and boots. The dress I'm wearing here was one of my favorites this summer, and I'd been wanting to restyle it for winter for quite a while. A few layers later, my summer dress was winter-ready, and I was a happy girl.

One thing I absolutely love about Denver is that, nearly every year, there are a couple weeks during the dead of winter when it's suddenly warm and springy. I seized the opportunity to pull out this pretty lilac silk blouse (no jacket necessary!) for a middle-of-the-day stroll and some brunch. Heaven!

Remember how I told you I was bringing home a new family member? This is the new little one! He's a longhaired dachshund, and he's just the sweetest little pup. He has been keeping me very busy for the last week--if only because it's impossible to resist that little face!

Sweater & Sparkle

Sweater: Old (similar from Brooks Brothers, RED Valentino or J.Crew) | Shirt: Abercrombie | Skirt: Crewcuts (runs large, also in women's sizing here) | Tights: H&M | Shoes: Via Spiga | Sunglasses: Chloe | Bag: Vintage | Necklace: Ann Taylor | Bracelets: Saks, boutique | Watch: Michael Kors

Sometimes I challenge myself to go through the items in the back of my closet and see if I can work the things that have been hiding back there into fun new outfits. I decided to give this old sweater (I think I last wore it over ten years ago) another chance. I liked how it looked with this new navy sequin skirt and some additional red and gold accessories to make the sweater look a little more polished. I think sequin skirts and big, warm sweaters are a great combination for days when you want to be cozy, but want to add a little extra sparkle to your look.

Readers, have you recently repurposed any items that you've had sitting in your closet for a while? What were they?
