ootd: remixed

i am wearing: c/o shabby apple dress as a skirt (last seen here), jcrew chambray shirt, necklace from women’s bazaar, bracelet from a boutique in hawaii and jessica simpson wedges.

i have been dying to wear this dress as a skirt for a while but was having trouble deciding how to wear it without using a cardigan since it has been pretty warm out lately. i am in a weird in-between seasons funk. i have so many bright summery outfits to wear still but fall colors and my boots are calling my name lately. luckily i live in southern ca so i still have some time to wear out my summer wardrobe. i thought for sure my husband would not care for this outfit but his first words when he saw me were “you look cute today”…go figure! i’m glad because you know i love a good twirly skirt.

p.s. if you would have told me 6mo ago that i would be tying up a shirt into a knot, i never would have believed you.

    An outfit is a million times better when you get a compliment from your husband! And I can see why he made the comment. The stripes and the chambray with that necklace is very pretty!

    I LOVE IT! That dress is fabulous, I absolutely love the stripes. The accessories are the perfect touch too. LOL at your comment about tying your shirt. I did it a few weeks ago and couldn’t get over the fact I was actually doing it, but it does look great and is a great way to use a blouse as a coverup instead of the (as much as I love them) predictable cardi.

    This is such a perfect late summer look. I love how you used a dress as a skirt! The stripes are wonderful and the cut creates a beautiful silhouette on you. Yo accented it perfectly with the red colored jewelry and denim top. Wonderful all around!

    love what you did with the dress
    wonder if the “skirt” would be as fabulously full if it wasn’t a dress

    I LOVE it as a skirt – even better a pieces that can be worn as a skirt or dress = bonus! Love the stripes with chambray.

    Love your style! Couldn’t even tell that you wore that skirt in the other post! It looks like two really different outfits too. Both are really cute outfits!

    I agree, my boots are straining to come out of the closet. Which is sad since just a few short months ago I was so happy to put them there.

    I’m having the same summer/fall conflict! And the weather around here can’t seem to make up it’s mind either! Anyway, I love how you styled this dress as a skirt–that chambray shirt looks fantastic knotted over it like that!
