MAXImize your Closet {Part 1}

We all have those beloved summer maxi dresses that keep up cool in the dead of the summer… But what happens to those dresses when the temperatures drop & we are left reaching for warmer pieces? Well I decided I want to maximize my closet by taking those pieces into next season by adding appropriate layers! 

White Dress: Milk & Honey similar here / Utility Jacket: JCP similar here / Ankle Boots: TJ Maxx similar here, here & here! / Necklace: Mindy Mae’s Market c/o / Watch: Nordstrom
This darling pleated white maxi dress from Milk & Honey Boutique was such a life saver this summer! However, it isn’t exactly “teacher appropriate” or warm on its own. Using a little Pinterest inspiration, {follow me here!} I opted to add my green utility jacket & cut-out booties. Now this maxi dress is almost as fall ready as I am! Adding this “tough,” structured jacket to the feminine pleat details of this dress created a fun contrast that was balanced with the neutral accessories. So go grab that dress you already put away for the cooler temps & try pairing it with booties and jacket for a refreshed style!  
Come back tomorrow & I will share another way to transform your favorite summer dress into the perfect fall outfit!
