This was actually a really hard challenge for me, because it turns out I don't really have a lot of "summery" dresses in my closet! I wound up borrowing one from my Etsy shop that I had listed last summer. With its light green and pink floral print, it's sort of more spring than summer, but I figured it still fit the challenge.
To make this springtime dress winter-appropriate, I paired it with a dark brown cardigan and burgundy tights, and topped it with my trusty pink pashmina, which I fudged into a shape that resembles an infinity scarf.
My first instinct was to wear brown pumps with this outfit, but I thought that boots would give a stronger winter feel, so I went with these brown suede pull-on wedges.
