Mixing Summer into Winter

Although I divide my wardrobe into summer and winter categories, there are occasions which I relish in mixing and matching to get cost per wear down. I got this Burberry trench dress a little while ago and hardly wore the piece because it was a little heavy for hot summer days. Anyhoo, I decided the fabric is heavy enough to wear during winter days, as long as I bundle up in layers.
Of course, as I am in my purple phase, I added a lilac cashmere sweater with a purple leather bag to complete my outfit. As I become older, I work on buying versatile pieces because in the long run it is cheaper than buy many trend pieces which always end up in donation pile. I must say I do adore this Burberry dress because it transitions beautifully from summer into winter. What about you, do you wear summer pieces during cold winter days?
