It’s very gratifying when I can re-purpose an item other than for its original intended purpose. Outfits for the holidays and weddings immediately come to mind. How many of those sit in our closets, never to be worn a second time? For example, I purchased this Anthropologie halter dress for the holidays last year. Yet, with the right accessories it can easily walk into summer.
For a light, summer look I paired this Anthropologie halter dress (sold out) with Pour La Victoire white slides, Botkier white mini bag, BaubleBar pink dangle earrings and Kate Spade pink sunnies. This is an easy look to pull together. I’d bet you have a pair of sandals, bag and fun earrings just waiting to breath new life into “that dress”. Recently I posted Taking A Holiday Sequin Skirt Into Summer. Pairing that skirt with a pink cami and kitten mules created the perfect summer outfit. It’s now a date night favorite.
This halter dress could easily be worn for a date night dinner, day time wedding, or even while playing tourist (just add a wide brim hat), even in your home town. Your closet probably holds similar discoveries just waiting to be found. The key is to open your mind to new possibilities while purposefully “shopping” your closet.
If you don’t have a holiday dress, no worries., this look can easily work with almost any style dress. I’ve also picked out a few cute summer halter dresses in case you’re in need of something new. I love halter dresses as they’re so elegant and really showcase a woman’s shoulders.
