I spent most of my undergrad years wearing an apron (because I went to art school), but it sure wasn’t this cool. It says it’s a dress, but it’s not. It’s an apron that ties in the back. If you wore it as a dress, everyone would be able to see your bum. 
The dress over pants thing rarely works, but I really like the way it’s styled here… would also look clever with a pair of shorts and pumps.
I know some of you will hate….
