I found this cool, breezy skirt/dress on the clearance rack at Cato last week. The opportunity to shop at that fabulous little store rarely presents itself, as it is in a town I visit only about once a year, if that, so I took advantage of it. I've been wanting to try on some maxi dresses, and I did find one of those that I liked. The problem with being 5'2" is that maxi dresses puddle on the floor a good 6-8" even with heels on! This two-in-one piece fit me nicely, however, and the price was nice at $15.99. The straps are removable so it can be worn as a skirt - which, of course, means it puddles on the floor unless I fold the top down half-way instead of wearing it like normal, taller women would do.
Please ignore my half-asleep look in the photo. Yes, I was a bit drowsy from getting up so early, but there was only enough time for two quick pics and I had to be happy with what Some Postman got on the first try.
2-in-1 worn as dress - Cato
Sandals - JCP
Earrings - from MIL's collection
Flower ring - JCP
White sweater - JCP, I think?
I really preferred not wearing the sweater with the dress, but since I was helping to lead the Day of Prayer service during Sunday School, I figured I'd better cover up my shoulders.
