It’s no secret that I’m a jeans girl. I totally prefer jeans over skirts and dresses. As a result, I don’t have very many skirts in my closet. In an attempt to maximize my wardrobe, I wore this dress as a skirt with my favorite braided-collar sweater. The pleated skirt lends an air of girly-ness that you just can’t get with jeans, and I love it. I look forward to trying out this dress-as-a-skirt thing through spring to see what fun combinations I can come up with…without spending a lot of money on a new skirt wardrobe.

    i really am loving the deep oxblood with the muted, creamy gray shades; lovely look!

    (i wear dresses as skirts constantly…. and i do, indeed, own tons of veritable skirts. it is a great trick 😉 )

    I’m in love with this look. The maroon looks stunning with the cream and maybe you should wear dresses/skirts more! They look adorable on you.

    I hope to meet up with you again. You are the sweetest!
