Layered Chambray Top and Maxi Dress

I had this outfit planned since this weekend when we took a few outfit photos and I was looking forward to wearing this outfit! Since I don't own a maxi skirt, threw on a chambray top over one of my maxi dresses to emulate a skirt and I love the result. The top of this dress is a tad low cut and fits snugly so it wasn't something I was always comfortable wearing. By adding a chambray over top, it make the whole outfit more casual and disguises the top part of the dress. Have you ever worn a dress as a skirt?

  1. The chambray shirt looks great over your dress! :) It is a very pretty printed dress too. I have a lot of maxi skirts, haha! And dresses! But I need to try this dress as a skirt look again I think, haven't worn it in a while. Thanks for the inspiration :)

    Hope you're having a great week :)

  5. I totally agree with you Laura: love it !
    Sometimes we are so used to seeing things worn in one particular way that we often forget the endless possibilities they have. Nicely done.

  9. I do this sometimes when I am tired of my current dresses and want a new look! I love this, the chambray top really gives it a fall vibe and the skirt (or should I say dress? lol) is so pretty!

  10. Layering a chambray shirt over a dress is probably even better than over a skirt - no worries about the knotted shirt becoming a crop top!
