Isn't it the first or second day of spring (depending on who you ask and where you live)? Aren't "April Showers" a little ill-placed in March? I'm a little bummed about the general overcastness we're experiencing, but that's mostly because it kept me from seeing the super-moon on Saturday.

Gee whiz. Thanks a lot for wrecking my weekend, clouds.

The slightly brisk weather was helpful for making an outfit, however. As you may recall from yesterday's post, I'm doing a Weeklong Remix of this navy blue sheath dress, and since it's sleeveless and a little shorter than I usually like my dresses to be, layering will be key this week. On a warmer day, the leggings/boots/turtleneck mix would have been miserable, but it was just perfect in this case.

I'm so excited to see how many readers are interested in The Weeklong Remix! Thank you all for your supportive comments, and hey, if you have a style blog and want to join in the fun, you'll have lots of opportunities to join me in a Weeklong Remix of your own; I'm planning to spotlight a new item each week for the next few months, at least, and you can play along whenever your heart desires.

  1. It freakin' snowed here! I thought it was spring! Argh!

    But good news, your outfit looks great. I wouldn't even think it's the same dress from yesterday. Good job!

    North Meets South

  2. I didn't see the supermoon, either! Grr. Everytime there's something happening up in the sky, it's always cloudy in the sky. I never see meteor showers or anything like that. (I did see that lunar eclipse three years ago...)

    Love your boots!

  3. Fabulous remix! I wanted to thrift a new item today, so I can join you, but life got in the way (yawn). I'm thinking of using a top/blouse as my item because I'm lacking in that department and need to either a) increase my inventory, or b) learn to remix better. I'll choose a and b. ; )

    Love that you're doing this challenge.

  4. Love supermoons AND this outfit! This post is a great example of layering towards a new outfit remix. I love the red sweater with your hair :)

  5. Your sheath dress remixes are fantastic! Would not have recognized it from yesterday to today if you hadn't brought it up. :) ALSO - freaking out over those boots.

  6. Super cute! Also that moon is amazing in that pic! Too bad for it being overcast :(

  7. I am loving this idea and your photos! I love a red brick wall and your idea of how to put this sheath dress together in a new and fun way. Yay!
