Happy Wednesday!
One way to use the many dresses in your closet is to turn them into a skirt. That is exactly what I did with this white dress. I love the casual yet stylish way the chambray shirt looks with my new "skirt". This look will also work with the chambray shirt left opened and with a belt and boots for the fall.
And yes, the clip on my bag is driving me insane. The photographer in me noticed it right away, but B is doing the best he can. So I used them. : )
Are you wearing dresses as skirts?
Thanks for reading.

  4. Chambray, white and camel- ALWAYS a good choice. This is such an awesome transition season outfit and the necklace gives it a fun kick in the pants to amp it up juuuust a little extra. Well done!

  5. Turquoise is always a classic stone, one of my favorites that never goes out of style. Great choice!
