What I Wore Wednesday
A Summer Dress in January


Even though it's January, the temperatures in Memphis have been hovering around 60. Last Friday, when we were allowed to wear jeans to work, I wore this. The dress shrunk after I washed it, so I belted it and paired it with skinny jeans. I ended up wearing a black jacket over it most of the day because it's always cold at my desk. A coworker told me I wasn't dressed appropriately for January. I laughed. Most fashion rules are meant to be broken anyway.







Dress - Target
Belt - Kohl's, from another outfit
Skinny Jeans - Target
Heels - JustFab

So, when it's the middle of winter, do you wear something from your spring and summer wardrobe if it's warm?




Today, I'm linking up with The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday.

I like it! Sometimes you gotta brighten up your outfits to get through the dull winter. Your hair is so pretty and shiny!

Those shoes are FAB! I love the color. I need to replace my skinny jeans from Target. I purchased 2 pairs when I bought them and one has a hole in them already... thank goodness they are affordable.

Rules are always meant to be broken!

60 degree winter days just don't happen here in MN, but I wear summer stuff anyway. A summer dress with tights and a cardigan makes it winter wear for me!:) You look cute - love the dress over jeans!

Love this! I wore white pants to a dinner in October... felt cute and still slightly naughty, but I figure rules were made to be broken at times :)
