Wearing // H&M dress, old

I'm getting more creative these days ladies. "Really" you may ask? Yes, really. I'm wearing a dress as a top. I know, it's groundbreaking. Well in my defense, I've been trying to figure out a way to wear this dress again. I last wore it on our honeymoon in Maui. The time before that, I wore it to my bridal shower. I even have a post to prove it (because I feel like if I don't blog it, the outfit doesn't exist). I love this dress, mostly due to sentimental value, but it's so darn short! I don't feel comfortable wearing it with anything other than sandals. The faux-wrap quality also can be tricky because it likes to play peek-a-boo when the wind hits it. It's very thin and slinky, which can be a pain. But its these same qualities that also make it perfect for layering, so that's where my idea of wearing it underneath my midi skirt came from. I love the pastel palette for Spring and Summer. I actually did do a twirl in this, but it wasn't captured on camera for the blog. So it didn't actually happen ;)


  1. Yay for repurposing! I love that dress as a top; works perfectly with your skirt!


  2. That skirrrrtt! So dreamy!

  3. Ohhh..your skirt is so pretty. I am really loving the powder blue color. Enjoy the rest of your week!

  4. Love your pastels. You look so chic. Great idea to wear the dress as a top! You can't even tell and you're getting more wear out of it.

  5. love your purse!!!! super cute. I've got to get a KATE SPADE PURSE, QUICKKK!!!!

  6. LOL @ "if I don't blog it, it doesn't exist." I think I have a lot of "non-existent" pieces in my closet. Sometimes they just don't work out to be blog posts, especially when we kind of try to put our best looks forward! And kudos on getting more creative. I definitely put "dress as top" in the creative category!

  7. well that is some very clever layering, I would never guess it wasn't a top. When I have my wraps that don't behave a little safety pin is my best friend.

  8. A dress turned top is the perfect way to get more use out of your clothes! I really do love that dress! It's so pretty! And the skirt is gorgeous too!
