Work + Had a family movie night to watch Harry Potter 7 Part 1 in preparation to watching the last Harry Potter movie tomorrow.

I don't know if you have noticed, but I don't wear REALLY short skirts or dresses very often. Somehow I feel uncomfortable showing so much leg. So dresses (like the purple shirtdress I have on today) that are super short usually don't get worn very often. But this purple shirtdress is definitely an exception!

I have managed to wear this dress in different ways without showing much leg... Let me explain: If I wear it as a dress, I add a skirt underneath so that the dress seems a little bit longer:

Sometimes I wear it like a trenchcoat or vest of some sort:

And now that I think about it, I could probably wear it with tights or leggins as well! See?! A little creativity goes a long way when it comes to under-used items in your closet.

Do you ever try any of these tricks?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this purple shirtdress:
