Party season is here! That means two things--you either have to shop for new outfits or re-invent things you already own. This is a little of both. The idea for today was to take a summery/lightweight dress and turn it into something appropriate for winter.
The dress is a tank Calvin Klein with sequins that look a bit like snake skin. I got it at TJMaxx on deep discount ($250 down to $20--it was on sale so much I think because it is summery). To make it wearable in winter, I added a cardigan in winter white [I also love this fuzzy blue one from Urban Outfitters]. The fluffy, fuzzy sweater draped over my shoulders makes it warmer and styled for the season.
I added Stella & Dot earrings (I also like this pair Stella & Dot Neeya Drop Earrings) and a golden clutch it's convertible--it also has a chain to wear it over your shoulder; find similar at Urban Outfitters here) and a pair of faux snakeskin heels.
Do you have a party outfit to share? What are you wearing over the holidays? Share what youve been wearing on Monday Mingle. Monday Mingle is a fashionable collaboration between me, Jill from Glamamom and Kristin from BonBonRoseGirls. Each week we post about our personal style and then invite our friends to join in the fun. This week head to Glamamom here; Jill is hosting.

Momtrends was not paid for this post. As always, we get a lot of free clothing to style. But no one paid me to put any of this together.
