Happy Monday my friends.  I hope everyone had a great Halloween weekend.  Mine was a ton of fun, as we attended a costume party.  I hadn't dressed up for Halloween in a couple of years, but now that I'm a mom, it was fun coordinating a costume with the twins. You can see a photo of us in our costumes here.  

Being a stay at home mom, my wardrobe has become very casual over the last couple of years.  You'll mostly find me wearing jeans and a tee shirt, or sweater, on any given day.  But that doesn't mean that I don't like wearing dresses.  In fact, I miss wearing them, so whenever I get the chance, I make sure to put one on.  Because I don't get to wear them very often, it's important to me that when I buy a new dress, I am able to style it in several ways.  I've shown you before how I like to pair dresses with jeans (here), and today I'm showing you how I style one as a skirt.  It was the bottom of this dress that I fell in love with when I bought it, so it was only natural that when I added a cozy sweater, it turned into the perfect skirt and top combo.  I finished my look with my OTK boots (I told you I'd be living in them this fall/winter) and my camel coat for a look that can take me from day to night.
