As you might have noticed around here, I don’t wear mini dresses. So when I’m shopping, it’s majorly annoying to find and fall in love with a mini dress in a gorgeous pattern or color, cause throwing on a pair of leggings underneath it totally changes the look for me, and not usually in a good way.
So I was thinking about this annoying situation a few weeks ago, and then I ran across this pin that I’d pinned ages ago and it sparked an idea. Instead of fighting the mini dress, how about I just make it work for me? An easy chop and hem, and suddenly it’s a darling hi-low top that doesn’t alter the gorgeous print, and doesn’t look silly with leggings.
Such was the case with this darling dress from Lulu*s that they sent me. A quick refashion and now it’s one of my favorite tops that looks amazing with jeans, shorts, or even a pencil skirt.
Here’s how I styled it, and a super easy tutorial is at the end of this post!
