Getting Out of Your Wardrobe Slump: Wearing dresses as skirts

Hi Lovies!

No matter how much clothing you have, there's always that inevitable wardrobe slump. You stand in front of your overflowing closet and utter the words "I have nothing to wear!" I know it's crazy but we all go through it. I've been trying to be good about over shopping and spending unnecessarily, especially with my son graduating high school this year and going to college. During this time I am super grateful for my Gwynnie Bee subscription (read about them here) and my ample wardrobe. But what do you do when you're bored with everything you have?? That's when you get creative and take a really good look at your wardrobe to come up with new and fresh styles with what you already have. My new favorite thing to do is wearing my dresses as a skirt. It changes the whole look and gives you the opportunity to add more to the outfit to make it unique. 

Adding a simple top with a blazer or sweater can change the whole look and give you multiple uses for the dress. If you have some summer dresses that you love but can't wear in the winter, totally put a fun sweater over it with tights and you've got yourself another look. I've had tons of  folks tell me how much they love my skirts and when I tell them its actually a dress they can't believe it. Here are some of my looks..

  1. LOVE THIS! I'm in a bit of a slump right now, I'm going to give this a go! xx

  2. Ladies skirts are a stylish, feminine and versatile pieces of clothing. In the summer they are comfortable and cool and in the winter can be worn with tights for an elegant but cosy outfit. African Attire
