Fashion Over Fifty: Chambray Dress Revisited

Hello!  For this week's Fashion Over Fifty post I wanted to show you a dress I wore last fall, in a cooler summer style.  As I said in my original post, this dress was meant to be worn in warmer months.  However, I bought it on clearance at the end of the year, so I styled it for colder weather in that post.  Well, we were meeting friends for dinner yesterday and I wanted to wear something casual, comfortable, yet dressy at the same time, so I pulled out my old chambray dress and restyled it for warmer weather.  It looked so different that even my husband asked 'Is that new?', when he saw it.

 I wore the dress with bare legs, gladiator sandals, a sequined tank top, and a light weight scarf.  It was a cooler day and slightly rainy, so the scarf was never too warm and I even used it later in the evening as a head covering when the rain intensified.

 I worn a off-white, braided woven belt around my waist, and tied it in a knot.
 My linen Bohemian scarf is from Forever 21.
 I found these cute black gladiator sandals at Sears.  They have a pretty gold metallic accent down the front and a zipper at the heel.  They are very comfortable to walk in.

I don't know about you, but I love getting multiple uses out of the same outfit and I'm thrilled that I can wear something in different seasons just by making a few basic changes.

Have a great day!  Amy
