Hello Yellow: Wearing a Blouse as a Dress

Is it just me, or have tops been extremely long this year? At 5’4″, I’ve had to get creative with these longer lengths, wearing blouses as tunics and tunics as dresses. When I spotted today’s featured blouse in Burlington Coat Factory on clearance for under $10, then, I knew it would make the perfect flowy dress on my shorter frame.

See: it’s cool to be short.

    I wish I were in your boat, I definitely have the opposite problem: my tops are all too short for me! You did a great job styling this top!
