Outfit of the Week - When I wore a dress as a skirt

So this skirt isn't really a skirt. It's totally a dress. I've had it forever and I love the pattern on it, but I wanted to figure out how to wear it to work. You know, since tube tops don't really fly in the office. So I folded the top down a whole lot and put a belt over it. Ta-Da: a new maxi skirt! Truth be told, the shirt I'm wearing is actually a tunic, so I've honestly got a whole lot of fabric going on today. But hey, when it's 108 degrees, what else would you do?

Dress (worn as a skirt): Forever 21
Shirt: H&M
Belt: Local Boutique
Sandals: Aldo
Necklace: Target

  1. CUTE! I wore a skirt as a dress this week!! Don't ya love versatility?!?!?

  2. You are a fashion GENIUS today!!! Way to remix it! I totally thought that dress was a skirt! I love the pattern and how you styled everything. Pure perfection!

    1. Shanna you are too kind! I'm pretty sure this will be the only time anyone will ever call me a fashion genius, so I'm relishing in the moment :)

  3. Visiting from Steppin' Out Saturday! Following you :)

  5. Very cute! I have a couple tube-top dresses that I've decided are better worn as maxi skirts too... gotta love versatile clothing!


  6. I'm too short to pull off a maxi-anything. Love when you can take a dress and make it into a skirt... you're good!


  7. The belt just totally makes that outfit! I think the dress makes a more interesting skirt (not that I've seen it as a dress). I'm gonna have to try that! My trouble with the maxi skirt is finding the right top--but you gave me the answer with the tucked in and belted look. Way cute! Stopping by from Real Girl Glam :)

  8. I came across your blog and love it! You know when you come across those sites and you just can't stop clicking around? Can't wait to see more :)


  9. I am totally for making your clothes work in different ways an I think one of the easiest things to do is turn a maxi dress into a skirt. Looks great as a skirt, you would never know that you've got all kinds of fabric tucked and folded away! Thanks for joining 'Real Girl Style' this week!

  10. Creative to turn your dress into the maxi. Love the print and how you paired it with this simple top! You are adorable :)

  11. I love turning maxi dresses into skirts. It adds a whole new dimension to your wardrobe! Love the boho-chic vibe you got going here.


  12. What a great way to style a dress. You look so chic.


Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
