Forever21 dress or top?

So there are going to be a lot of pictures of me in this post.. bear with me here. I need some input! Renee gave me this top/dress (gotta love a hand-me-down!) and I can't quite decide the best way to wear it. It's pretty long, so it could technically be a dress. Or a top - because it has this elastic band toward the bottom. It's probably easier to show you what I mean ..

The other day Harvie and I met R. for lunch and went for a walk through the park -  a great break from work and hey, what do you know - a photo opp.

Here it is pulled all the way down, dress style:

 Dress: Forever 21, Leggings: Plato's Closet, Earrings & bracelet: Lia Sophia, Belt: Kohls (Lauren Conrad),
Sandals: KMart in Australia (seriously, they had good stuff over there!), Dog: Craigslist

I added my favorite belt (I think I wear it in almost every post, geez) to give it a more defined waist.

So with the elastic band you can also make it more of a top and kind of fold the loose part over.. 

And here is it without the bottom part - I am thinking about removing most of the bottom part (quick & easy refashion) and only wearing it as a top. Just picture it with skinny jeans instead of leggings..

So many choices for one top!

I can't decide how I like it best.

So today I've got to finish getting packed for family vacay to Hilton Head! I got some new beachy hats I can't wait to feature. Yep, I'm going to keep blogging. We're going to have wireless internet and the husband is great at taking outfit pictures. I need blogging to keep me sane. So no need to say goodbye. I will be in the car all day tomorrow - so, goodbye for now!

Have a great weekend :)
