A Dress Worn as a Top


My Thoughts…

You know those days that consist of running errands? Yea, it was one of those days. My main concern while getting dress was comfort so, I threw on my stripe dress.  I decided not to wear it as a dress and paired it with my teal skirt. I love wearing dresses as tops. To make the top a little interesting I pulled it off my shoulders. I usually wear a belt, but this time I wasn’t in the mood for one. However, I was in the mood for print. Of course I picked my animal print scarf. It’s versatile and it looks great with almost anything.


Putting it Together!

Remember my old post, Accessorizing with a Scarf? I showed different ways you can play with a scarf; attached on a necklace, as a belt, or on your wrist. For this look, my wrist was my first choice and I love it.  Because I used strong pieces I decided to keep the accessories light. I chose pearl earrings and gold ballet flats to complete my look.

This skirt has potential to be anything. Mini, hi-low, long, whatever my mood is!


  • Dress: H&M (Thrifted)
    Skirt: Goodwill
    Shoes: Banana Republic
    Scarf: Thrift Store
    Earrings: Thrift Store

You can call me Hera for short. I would describe myself as a free spirit, eccentric, wild flower; lover of fashion, art, and everything in between. My mind is filled with soooo many ideas…it gets kind of crazy up there. I’m working on perfecting the translation, but sometimes I wish I could just take a snap-shot of my visions instead. I’m all for trial and error though. It makes life thrilling. You know… taking risks, succeeding,trying, and failing, with intentions to be better. All in all I feel good about where I am in life. I’m sure of myself. Like Janelle Monae said, “I feel myself truly becoming the fearless person I have dreamt of being.”

  1. Love the post and outfit! My typical running errand outfit would be skinny jeans, a t-shirt, and cute flats or wedges! I usually only wear my scarves for turbans but I should try it’s try purpose!


  2. i love how creative you got with this outfit…and i love the color of that skirt. pretty all around! (p.s. i found you in the blog trends chat from tonight =D).

  3. Great style!

  4. I do the same too. cute combination tho 🙂

  5. I like stripes so yes for the off shoulder top, the teal skirt, and preferably I would have put the scarf around my neck or my head.

    When I’m running errands I tend to throw on cheerleading shorts and a t-shirt. Nothing really spectacular that would actually bring attention to me.

    I have worn a dress as a top before and a dress as a skirt as well.

    With scarves I wear them on my head, around my neck, stomach, or waist as a belt.

    • I can def. see you rocking a scarf around your neck. I love wearing a dress as skirt too. My other “I’m running errands” look is jeans or casual shorts and a bright top. Especially to the grocery store.
