Cute Outfit of the Day: Re-Purpose Chic

plaid shirt: Goodwill $3.49
dress: BRAND NEW! Merona for Target via Goodwill $4.99
belt: Goodwill $1.99
boots: Aldo- gift $0
earrings: F21 $5.80
Total Cost: $16.27

I got the inspiration for this outfit from another blogger but I can't remember who! So let me know if it's you! Anyway, I've had this dress for awhile and wasn't sure if I was going to keep it because it was just a little too big. Putting the skirt under it makes it fit much better though! This is also a great way to get more use out of your dresses that are just a little too formal for everyday wear! This is normally a dress I would save for a nicer occasion but pairing with a plaid skirt makes it casual enough to wear anytime! You don't have to buy new clothes, you just have to re-purpose your old clothes!

    Help! How do I wear this?

  2. I like this look - wearing a dress as a jumper. It's so classic, but it looks fresh to me.

    I wore an outfit similar to this, so I'll take the credit ;)

  3. I like how you re-purposed this pretty plum color dress! Looks really nice with the plaid shirt and cute little boots! Liking this styling a lot!
    Good luck!
