Dress shirt

I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who notices that dresses are getting shorter and shorter these days.  To combat the potential of flashing the world, the common solution that I hear is wearing shorts underneath a dress.  I thought I'd change it up a little though.  What about wearing shorts over the dress?  Fine, so it's not exactly a dress anymore, but it still makes for a nice shirt.  Just make sure to fold the dress up neatly so there are no awkwardly noticeable hemline bumps under the shorts.

  3. Haha, oh I know, believe me. I pick up a top and find out it's actually a dress. It's like, "Wow, really? That's scary!"
    I love how you turned this one into a top. Very cute. Those shorts are a great color!

  15. I always wear shorts of some kind under dresses because of one unfortunate windy day incident on a busy street corner in Winnipeg when I lived there - lesson learned!
