I could wear dresses every day of the week!  And this month, I am!  I’m not exactly, er, short of dresses and I love the fact that you can just throw on a dress and a necklace and go, but I still like to explore styling tips and tricks to get even more versatility out of my dresses!  Hence, this week’s Tuesday Try: wear a top over a dress!  This is a nice way to turn a dress into a “skirt” AND stay extra warm, which is especially helpful if you’re wearing dresses in winter.  I have worn a dress with a tee, a dress with a chambray before, and a dress with a sweater (several times a piece!) and today I paired a basic dress with a jersey top!

That was easy!  AND I had the chance to wear a December thrift purchase!

Naturalizer boots for $12.60, as modeled by my daughter who apparently shares my love of boots.

So far, so good, in terms of my personal challenge of wearing a different thrifted dress every day!  It’s not hard when you end up in a fab outfit like I did today!
