The dress worn as a jacket...

SPORT IT  Day 5 ladies and I’m done!! I will admit that I did put some thought in how to present the dress the final day. I’ve worn it plain, under a blazer, as a shirt and as a skirt — there was nothing left to do besides burn it then bury it :), sooooooooo I decided to sport it as a jacket — the pockets came in handy!  I did a trial run the evening before which I also posted below. Funny how the weather has been cool all week and now today it’s hot as blazins, so I ditched the jeans and the heels and opted for shorts and flats. Let me know what you guys think!

Trial Run + Final Result

I folded then ironed the skirt, rolled the sleeves and pulled the collar down to hide the ruffles. I added a sleeveless collared shirt underneath, a lightweight scarf for added effect and my pin striped shorts. I’ve also posted the look sans the “jacket”
