Resurrecting a dress

Who says that you have to wait until special occasions to wear pretty dresses and fancy hemlines?  I'm not a fan of wearing things only once and having them doomed to an eternity of gathering dust in my closet.  So instead of letting this particular dress dangle in limbo, I decided to give it a second life by taking away its formal dressiness by throwing a sweater over it to make it more casual.  Now I'm happy because I don't feel like I'm wasting my $11 on something I never wear, and the dress is happy because it gets to see the light of day now.

  11. I love being able to mix up fancier pieces in a casual way. Throwing a sweater on top can magically transform a dress! Your pink cardigan is such a pretty color and looks great with your fancier dress. I'm loving those awesome wedge booties too.
    And the setting for these pictures is gorgeous!
