My friend Sarah can rock a maxi dress like no other (think tall, blonde, gorg).  I, on the other hand, have to be super selective in finding a dress that doesn’t swallow me whole.  So when Sarah told me that maxi dresses don’t work in the winter, I set out to prove her wrong.

Granted, I use the term “winter” loosely, considering we live in Arizona. Nevertheless, the challenge inspired me to adapt a conventionally summertime dress for cooler weathers.  Layers are the obvious key to this transition and while I’m still sleeveless in November (75°F yesterday), a chunky cardigan or sweater would work just as well.  Love ya Sarah!
