Summer Stripes Suited for a Wintry Day

I purchased a strapless, A-line, stripe dress from Ann Taylor in the spring of 2010.  Since then, this dress has emerged as one of my favorite summer dresses.  It’s like a luxe jersey knit meets stripes and a perfect A-line silhouette.

I keep passing by the dress in my closet, wishing I could wear it now.  Today, though, I decided to pull out the dress and make it work on this cold day.

The dress is topped by a chunky knit, blue sweater that I bought in Old Navy yesterday for $3.50!  Old Navy is currently offering an extra 50% off clearance items.  This sweater, by the way, is also available in a few beautiful colorblocked combinations.

    This is a great look, with the pops of vibrant blue, yellow and red! Nice way to repurpose a summer dress! And why did you have to tell us about Old Navy's sale… Now I'm gonna have to go see what they have, I've been doing good shopping my closet haha
