Third Thursday Threads: Winterize a summer item

Hello everyone!  I am joining up with a "new to me" link up today.  It's Third Thursday Threads over at Work Clothes, I Suppose.  This month's theme is "Winterize a summer item."  I thought it would be a perfect challenge to take part in as summer seems light years away here but I have been longing for some of my summer pieces!

If you've been following my blog awhile, you know one of my favorite things to do is wear a dress as a skirt.  I have worn a couple of sundresses this winter as skirts, but today I decided to challenge myself with a maxi dress.  I wasn't sure how this would look, but in the end I'm really pleased.  And actually, because I'm wearing nice warm tights underneath, I'm quite warm too which is good since the thermometer was reading 7 degrees above zero this morning!

Dress as skirt - Merona, Target
Sweater - Polo Ralph Lauren (From cousin)
Necklace - Charming Charlie
Boots - Target
Barrette - from sister in law 

For fun I went through my archives and found a couple of other ways I wore this dress back in the summer.  One example can be found here.  Another example is here.  I look forward to being able to wear this when it's warm out again, but for now, I'm glad I found a way to enjoy it in cold weather too!

Be sure to check out Bri Marie's blog, Work Clothes, I Suppose for other Third Thursday "Winterize a summer item" outfits!

  8. I love that! Great pairing of the maxi dress with the sweater. Glad that you are nice and warm!
