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.



  1. you are so right. just around this time is when i want to throw out sweaters and thick wintery things. this is a great way to extend the life of a pretty summer dress. love it!

  2. You look adorable!!! Love your belt and that MAM is old school but what a beauty!!!

  3. I love the title of this post, haha! The most important thing about a dress that I usually look for is how versatile it would be during both winter AND spring because I want to be able to wear them any time of the year! This is a great idea to style a dress for the winter days.

  5. Oooh, I love this look and that cute leopard belt! If you need me, I'll be standing in my closet gazing longingly at my Spring pastels as well...
