Wearing a dress as a cardigan

dress: wilfred - aritzia (worn as a cardigan, old) // tee: aritzia // jeans: levis // boots: aldo (older) // hat: h&m // watch: michael kors // bag: roots 

I have to admit, I'm guilty of forgetting what I have in my closet. 
For example, this dress (which I LOVE btw) got completely forgotten about. I got it for a crazy steal at one of Aritzia's sales. I remember when I was contemplating buying it, the sales associate said I could wear it as a cardigan. I never thought I could wear their wrap dress as a cardigan but oddly I think it works. 
I love re-purposing things you already own, it really helps with the days where you feel like you have nothing to wear. Would you wear a dress as a cardigan? All I did was tie the belt to the back and voila a cardigan! 

In other news, I think I'm getting sick. Finally the cold and flu season has reached me. I've been feeling so out of it lately and I'm hoping the sickness flies by before it gets worse. Wishful thinking right? 

Have a great Wednesday.. It's almost Friday!
