How to Wear a Dress as a Top

Happy Hump Day everyone.  Hope everyone is doing well.  We've been dealing with some seasons cold/sinus issues in our house lately.   My little dude has had a sinus cold for the past week+, and has had a steady daily flow running from his nose, and also post nasal drip giving him a very wet cough (TMI? ;) #momlife, LOL)  Then I was hit by something - maybe the same thing? - that had me out with a fever for day, and now I am having sinus issues and a sore throat.  'Tis the season, I guess.  

I'm hoping that we're all feeling better and active by this weekend, because it is Free Museum day in Los Angeles this  Saturday, and we are hoping to take a family trip the Natural History Museum to see the dinosaurs. :)

I'm a big fan of pretty tops that you can throw on a go and still look like you but some thought into your style.  Loose and comfortable is also a huge plus.  However, being 5'11" I find that most tops that are intended to be tunic length on me end up being about regular length. And then short dresses are often TOO short for public on their own.  I've found that certain mini-dress styles work well as tunics for us extra-tall folks, and even look cute on the more average height frame with a good pair of skinny jeans and some heels.

This top is very light and flow-y (and it has its own pockets!) and I believe is marketed as a dress.  But unless I'm wearing it as a swimsuit cover-up, it would be a style-blooper waiting to happen if I wore it all alone.  Paired with my jeans it is a win as a comfy top for a variety of activities. Like going to the museum! ;)
