hide that dress

40 comments

I can't believe it took me ages to figure out that I could wear this dress as a top, when paired with my trusty AA skirt. I quite like it. Both the skirt and the floral dress are almost exactly the same length though, so the dress hem tends to peek out every now and then (as you can see when I - for no reason at all - try to twirl in the last photo). This skirt is probably one of the few non-thrifted items in my wardrobe that I get a LOT of wear out of. Speaking of AA skirts, I want to get the Interlock High-Waist one soon. Looks like a terrific basic, and I'm thinking the longer length would be even better for hiding those dress hems!

P.S. I'm doing a guest blog post over at the gorgeous Here Comes the Sun today! Take to look? :)

I love the way you wore that dress. Adorable as a top!

I think you may have just inspired my first AA purchase...I always walk in there and think "I'm not a ballerina!" and never get anything, but I love that interlock!

I love that dress & skirt. It does match together (: it doesn't matter if the outlining peaks out anyway, it could another layer (: plus I always wear some of my short tight dresses with flowy skirts so they both get two looks out of it, it's quite nifty! And the other day I found myself wearing a zip top backwards because I think the back looks better as a front ;D hehe

keep up with the lovely post's!

Oh so so pretty, Anna! I have a trusty black skirt which goes over dresses and under dresses too. Your floral dress is gorgeous with it.
