This and That..Winterizing A Summer Look!

Summer to Winter Look

Welcome to my wintry world! There's still plenty of snow in my neck of the woods.....literally.....

Here's a picture out my back door. You can see our ruler sticking out of the snow. We've actually had a little melting. Depending on where we measured, we had between 6-12 inches of snow this past weekend. 

I definitely wouldn't be wearing this outfit outside today! There's been a lot of talk in the blogosphere recently about winterizing summer fashion. I like to get as much use out of my clothing as possible, so I thought I would give this winterizing trick a try today. So here's the summer look...a pretty summer dress in a color I love. I've added a matching scarf as a shawl.

And here is the dress "winterized."  I added a black turtleneck for warmth, black leggings and knee high slouch boots. The shawl scarf is now an accent scarf tied around my neck.

I like the feminine look of this winterized fashion! How about you? Do you like to winterize any summer outfits? How snowy is your world? I'd love to hear from you!

I love that dress! Such a great color. I like how you styled it for both summer & winter, both work beautifully! I am personally rejoicing that the snow missed my area of Ohio!

Karen said...

Forgot to add, I do winterize too. Especially like to layer shirts and sweaters jumper style as you have done.

Thanks,Karen, I do love this color. I call it salmon, but I'm not sure if that's the official color name or not. So glad the Big Snow missed your area in Ohio. I have friends and family in Ohio and went to college there! It's a great state! Thanks for your kind comments about my winterizing!

Hi Debbie,
I know quite a bit about winterizing and do a lot that myself. I live in a place that I call Narnia... It's really Alaska, but it sure feels like Narnia. ;-)

Hi Debbie. What a nice shout-out for my blog...that's so sweet of you! I think one of the best things about winterizing a summer look is the color. I can see how that pop of red would brighten up a wintery day.

Thanks for lending your flair to the My Refined Style Linkup. See you again next month!
