reworkin' it

J. Crew Striped Dress

The first littering of leaves are on the ground so it's safe to say it: fall is finally here in Atlanta. Instead of running out to buy every possible fall staple, I've been trying to work with what I have. Or in other words, rework. 

This striped tank dress was from J.Crew two summers ago, and I love it it for warm days, but it's also a good element for fall layering. Luckily, navy is not tied to any one season, so it was an easy pair with chambray and a cargo jacket.

That said, I'm not completely cutting out all shopping, just repetitive shopping. I mean, who do you think I am? No shopping period is just not possible.

  4. I love when you can repurpose a dress and make it work a second time around!! I think you're totally right - sometimes you have to work with what you have!!! Hope you have a great Monday!!

  28. This is such a great way to transition the dress to fall. I really need to spend more time reworking my closet. It's easy to fall into the trap of buying new things!
