You probably have a sleeveless dress in your closet, right?  Have you ever worn it in winter?  Sure, you could wear it over a button-down collared shirt but what about wearing it over a turtleneck?  I have no idea why it took me so long to pair these two items together, but now that I have I think I’ve opened up an entirely new area of my closet.  You mean I don’t have to buy long-sleeved dresses for the winter??

Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean every single dress can be worn with something underneath.  It probably works better with more tailored dresses.  Although, admittedly, I haven’t tried this pairing with any other dresses in my closet.

Still, I’m excited to find new ways to wear my “summer” dresses in the colder months of the year.

P.S.  Do you need somewhere to store your jewelry?  Well, I’m giving away a jewelry holder over at Frills for Thrills!  I actually own this one and find it to be super versatile.
