'Winterize' Your Maxi

Towards the middle of winter,
I start to get a little bored of the usual legging-sweater-boot combination.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE winter clothes,
but some days call for something a little unexpected.
When we hit nearly 60 degrees here in Arkansas the other day,
I jumped at the chance to bare a little leg.
 {A leg that has not seen a lot of sunlight, so I apologize if the paleness blinds you.}

One of my favorite ways to switch things up this time of year, 
is to 'winterize' one of my basic jersey maxi dresses.
There are a few ways to do this,
not all require slightly warmer weather--some you can even wear with tights. 
But for this look, I chose to layer on a Free People crop top.
{A cropped sweater would also look really cute!}
I also added a brim hat, and these Seychelles booties I can't seem to take off my feet.
And to show off these booties of mine,
I simply tied a knot on the side of my maxi dress.
