New dress - same dress

January is a great time to evaluate your wardrobe.  This can seem like a daunting task for many reasons.  Whether it's time, self-image, budget, kids in the way, dog in the way, dog ate your homework, hangnail, doesn't matter.  First of all, if it feels too large and not possible - contact me- let's talk about a custom package for you :).  Otherwise, maybe for today, we will take a small step with one item.

What's a piece in your closet you love but either you don't wear it enough or you are stuck in a rut and only wear it one way?  Recently I had dinner with a friend and she looked adorable.  When I took a closer look at her outfit I saw endless possibilities with the key piece.  I asked her permission to share so that is what we are taking look at today.  

First here is a picture of the item.  It's a super cute dress.

The dress is on trend with the floral detailing, the stitchwork and embellishments.  In the summer worn simply with a pair of flats or sandals this dress would be adorable.  For many (who am I kidding most of us) right now, weather-wise, this couldn't be worn alone.  Layering the dress with a jacket and leggings or tights, and boots would be perfect.  In fact, that's how she wore it to dinner on a cold night.

So far, that's 2 different ways and 2 different seasons so far for this beauty.  Another way to wear this would be layer it over skinny jeans, add a pair of heels, booties or platforms.  Depending on the season add a jacket and boom! one more way to wear it!  You have just added 3 new outfits with one piece. 

I talk often of shopping your own closet, this is a great example of that.  Go ahead...shop your closet.  Find one piece you love.  Take a piece either you haven't worn in FORever or a piece you are stuck only wearing one way and wear it different!
