I fell in love with this pattern the moment I laid eyes on it. I have had this very acute fixation with a J. Crew skirt in a similar pattern that was released in 2006. Because I haven’t been able to find it, I caved and got this little number.
This pattern comes in a skirt and a dress. Purchasing this dress was a bit of a struggle. I bought the skirt and then got it out the store, only to discover the pineapple print was black instead of navy. I need navy otherwise the print matching gets a little too “eccentric”. So I went back to get the dress. Plus I can make the dress double duty as seen here.
It’s truly simple. Pick a button down, any button down, unbutton the last three buttons and tie it in a knot. Think Dukes of Hazard here. Tucked the knot under and Voila, you have a skirt. Paired with red accessories for a little something special and out the door you go.
Usually I’m the girl announcing, “It has pockets!” whenever someone compliments a dress. Whenever I wear this skirt though, I find myself wanting to shout “it’s a dress!” It’s so simple to turn a dress into a skirt.
