Wardrobe Refashion

Inspired by Lindsay @ Hello Hue, I decided to try my hand at refashioning some pieces in my wardrobe. She did a great post a while back on how to make more pieces out of the dresses you already own and turn them into skirts. Now this doesn't work for all dresses as it lends itself best to those with flowing bottoms but for a backyard BBQ and a night out with friends I think I found a winner. 
This green dress is from American Eagle a few years ago and I absolutely adore it. It's super soft cotton, the perfect length and it even has pockets! Pockets on a dress take it to a whole different level, don't you think? Unfortunately it has really thin straps and a pretty deep V-cut which sometimes is just more annoying than it's worth. So following Lindsay's tips, I folded the top of the dress inside the bottom, tucked in a plain white cami and belted the whole thing.

I got so many compliments wearing this outfit that I don't think I'll ever wear the dress "the regular" way again!
