I tell you, this extended winter is killing me. Ok, a bit exaggeration there, but these extra chilly days have forced me to really stretch my imagination in order to keep my wardrobe interesting. When I am feeling creatively challenged I get back to basics. Black, knits, dresses, demin and of course my wardrobe staple – the wrap dress. I wear my wrap dresses way more than you all may realize or care to see, as I don’t share them on Instagram or here on the blog everytime I wear them. My go-to lately has been; wrap dress + tall boots.
The other night I got a wild hair and decided I would wear my wrap dress with black knit boot cut pants – mostly because I was fighting off a cold and the thought of my knees being exposed to the night chill was enough to practically send me back into my flannels under the warm covers. Back to the dress. Standing in front of the mirror I got to thinking, maybe I could tie this dress differently, who says it has to be “wrapped”? Or for that matter, who says it was to be a dress? After playing around with it a bit, next thing I knew I’d created an open, knot front tunic, that I was quite pleased with. So much so, I put the look together for you all today.
Pleased with my creativity, I got on to YouTube to see if anyone else shared my genius new look. It took me a while, but I did find one YouTuber who was on the same page. Since she took the time to make a video, I thought I would save myself some recording time and just share hers…it does the job!
