It's a Lacy Dress as a Skirt Kind of Day

When Marion of Marionberry Style introduced this month's Trend of the Month, I was so excited. I have a decent amount of lace in my closet, and I almost never wear it, especially in winter. This was a great motivation to pull it out!

You'll notice a lot of outfits in the coming weeks where I've taken a dress that is typically worn for fancy occasions or only in summer and tried to winterize it. I've been making a huge effort to find new ways to wear the items I have in my closet instead of buying new ones, and dresses have been a huge part of that. This is a great example - this dress has only been worn before for special occasions. 

I started with this outfit: 

And quickly added a blazer to pull it all together:
Dress: Nordstrom (similarBlazer: Nordstrom (similar),
Sweater: J. Crew Factory, Boots: gift, Tights: HUE

 Need more inspiration for the Third Thursday Threads Link-up tomorrow?
This outfit would totally work for Winterizing Lace!
