rabbit heart






dress worn as top: missguided | skirt: primark | ring: primark

I've been getting bored of my wardrobe again lately and I've been spending time trying to think up new combinations and this one hit me whilst I was on a bus the other day (still don't have a car, sob!). Although I love this dress, I rarely wear it because it's a bit too short. Wearing it as a top works well, especially since the nice detailing is around the collar, and means I can wear it more often!

Those of you who follow me on Twitter will know that I'm doing the Jenny Craig diet this month. I really want to lose a bit of weight and Jenny Craig has a lot of success stories! It's one of those programmes where they send out your meals to you, all healthy and proper sized portions. I'm blogging about it over on my other blog Where Are My Knees? if you're interested! Wish me luck!

  1. That looks lovely as a top, it's so cute! I have a few dresses which are now too short so that's a good idea to wear them as tops..just need to get some appropriate skirts!

    1. A lot of my dresses are now far too short aswell (although I swear I haven't grown?!) so I think I'll be doing this more often! x

  3. That dress is so lovely, such a clever idea to wear a skirt over it, I should try that with some of my clothes!
    Can't wait to hear what you think of Jenny Craig, I've heard a lot of good things about it!

    1. Thank you! I think I'll be wearing more skirts as tops in the near future! I've heard lots of things too. I feel like I'm eating constantly at the moment but it's all small portions... x

    1. Aww rubbish! 4lbs is quite a small amount to lose, I reckon you could do that in a couple of weeks seeing that 1-2lbs is a healthy loss. I think the key is eating small and often, at least that's what Jenny Craig is all about. It is really expensive so probably not something I'd recommend for a weightloss of 4lbs! You're skinny anyway lady, pfft! :) x

    1. Thank you! I haven't done anything different than I usually do, I think my camera and the lighting were just at their best today! The skirt looks much more 'expensive' than a Primark number doesn't it?! x

    1. Yea definitely! I didn't think it would work because of the elasticated waist on the dress but I can just about hide it! Aww thank you! I know I'm by no means fat but I've got a few extra lbs on me that I'd rather not have! x

  10. Love this outfit! I love wearing skirts up high waisted like this, makes outfits look more girly and gives us all lovely curves :)

    I really wish I'd got this skirt from Primark, see so many bloggers wearing it, damn! x

    1. Thanks Jennie! I don't know about you but the dress was the perfect length first time I wore it and now it feels far too short. :( Definitely works as a top though, as long as the skirt is high waisted! x

  17. Good idea!
    Good luck with the Jenny Craig! I hope it works for you. I must admit though, I've always wondered how easy it is to stay slim when you stop getting the food sent to you.

    1. Thanks! That's what I wonder too but it's only day 4 and I've already learned a lot about portion control. I was having massive portions compared to what I've been eating on this diet and I was eating a lot of unhealthy snacks because I chose to skips meals. Here's hoping I can manage to keep any weight I lose off! x
