I have worn this smocked neck shift as a dress and top on several different occasions. You all know I love a multi-purpose piece and a dress is the perfect example of that. Maybe you even have an old dress that's a bit too short, I love those tucked into Levi cutoffs, denim skirts or even added to leggings or cropped skinny jeans. To keep it from looking like a dress, simply tie a knot on the side to add a bit of character. If you are knot challenged, use a small rubber band and pull on it until you get the same look! 
I am writing from Austin, TX this morning. Can I just say I love this state! The food, the people and the scenery is simply fab. I attended an amazing conference the first two days here in Fort Worth. It was super chilly in there as they don't mess around with the AC here. For the second day, I had planned on wearing a dress but because I was sitting, I knew I would freeze. I put on my ripped skinny jeans with it and it was a hit!! You can see the pic on my IG @parlorgirl also you can follow along on my snapchat too @theparlorgirl to see all our funny daily happenings and a lot of little miss. 
Off to explore more Texas today!!

Thanks for reading... xxB
