One skirt, two ways: Wear it now, wear it later

As I mentioned in a recent post, I broke my arm at the climbing gym the other day, so this means few outfit posts to come in the near future. Mostly because I seem to be only able to wear strapless dresses for the moment, so that's nothing too exciting and original to showcase. So instead, I have to get a bit creative with content featuring photos I have already shot.

That's where this post comes in. I was thinking about my photoshoots and realized that I had a fab skirt to be worn as a dress or a skirt, and in turn can be worn as such all year round. In fact, I am wearing it as a strapless dress with a sweater & boots in the winter shot and as a skirt with a tank top in the summer shot. But I've also worn it as a strapless dress in the summer and plan to wear it as a skirt this upcoming winter.

You've got to love a piece that is this versatile.
