Dress vs. Top


Confession: this dress is actually a top! But since I'm 5'2 I can rock it sans pants - perks of being petite! I found this top/dress while digging through the racks at T.J. Maxx and fell in love with the fabric the second my hand grazed it. It has a vintage feel, with super soft cotton, a released hem and grey washed effect. The drop-ruffle lends a flirty vibe to an otherwise shapeless shift silhouette. Paired with my coral ankle-wrap sandals & tassel crossbody, it's the ideal outfit for a hot summer day.

  2. Girl you totally pull it off as a dress! I just got a tunic (so I guess it's technically a top) from Free People and I totally plan on wearing it as a dress! Yay for being short haha!

  5. I've had this thing before but mine was the opposite. I had a dress but to short for me so wore it as a top. You look gorgeous!

  7. Love this outfit! What a great TJMaxx score! I totally wish I could wear things like this as dresses. I have to be careful. Often things that are advertised as dresses are tops on me!

  16. That's creative of you to turn this top into a dress. Love the ruffles on the hem! And the color and look of the fabric is so unique. I've been dying to see this look since you posted a sneak peek on Insta! xx

  22. First of all, you're looking super babely in this outfit! Secondly, look at those gams! Somebody goes to the gym <3. Lastly, you totally look like that babe JoJo on the Bachelorette, which is a major compliment because she's utterly gorgeous just like you!
