What I Wore: Remix

I picked up the dress I'm wearing below a few weeks back, and last wore it as a dress in this post. When I went to dinner tonight at my parent's country club (where I got married!) I decided to tone it down a bit and turn the dress into a top, and wear it with jeans! it's a great little trick to expand your wardrobe, whether you're at home, or while traveling with limited options. The last time I wore this, I had my hair down, but the back of the top is really interesting, so I'm glad I decided to wear my hair up!I think I like the "dress" equally as a top and a dress, and it'll be great to layer with in the fall. I paired the "top" with my grandmother's earrings (borrowed from my sister) and a turquoise necklace I picked up at a consignment store when I dropped off a load of clothes earlier this week.

What pieces pull double duty in your wardrobe? 


  1. The necklace makes the fashionista magic! Sometimes it is a small, but all-changing difference;)

  2. I really like the pattern of the dress/top combined with the turquoise necklace
    Did you just tuck the dress into the jeans?? I can't even tell!! This is a great idea for travelling, thanks for sharing :)

  3. Aline- yep, just tucked in the very bottom edge, then kind of folded over the rest- it's a pretty thin material, so there wasn't much bunchiness at all!

  4. Cute dress :)
    I've done it too. Make dresses into tops or skirts too. This week I made a maxi dress into a skirt, just layered a top over it and no one knew.

  5. This outfit is killer--I love the back of the dress/shirt and that turquoise necklace is gorgeous! My cardigans work as sweaters and as tops...I get creative ;) so so happy to have stumbled on your blog! xoxo {av}

  6. I too love flipping dresses into tops and I agree with Susu that necklace totally took the outfit to another level.


  7. You look SO cute! That pattern is absolutely to die for.
