Summer to Winter Dress (& Friday link up reminder)

January 28, 2015

Lately I’ve seen several bloggers wearing spring/summer dresses as winter garb and looking quite adorable!  So I felt inspired to try the trick myself.  Here’s my pretty eShakti birdcage dress styled last summer on the left and for winter on the right.

I have to admit that I was a little skeptical at first. but I really like the way my outfit turned out.  I added a turtleneck with boots and tights for warmth. I think it’s a good look for teaching … comfy and modest.  And I even noticed that eShakti still has this dress and it’s on sale.  
(Actually lots of great sales right now at eShakti!)

If you’re excited to shop for spring but are still having winter weather, this would be a fun way to rationalize a new dress … style it for winter now and spring later! 
(You can always count on me for an excuse to shop!)

And last but not least, please don’t forget to join us for the FUN FASHION FRIDAY link up party this Friday and every Friday right here at Fashion Should Be Fun!  I was so excited by the great turnout last week and can’t wait for another Friday of fashion fun!
