Trendy On A Budget

Looking good shouldn't cost that much!

Wrap Me Up

Banana Republic_J.Crew_Steven by Steve Madden_Chanel_coverAs of late, I have been waking up in a state of confusion. What day is it? It can’t possibly be Monday already! Maybe it’s a holiday (wishful thinking)? I think the wedding planning is starting to catch up to me; lots on my mind, ya know? T minus (less than) 3 months. Yikes! Getting dressed for work is a whole other situation I’ve been struggling with. I’m so tired, I just start grabbing things out of my closet and hope for the best. But lucky for me, there is such a thing as an insta-outfit that requires zero effort. Huzzah, the wrap dress!

The classic silhouette and black & white color combo make this the perfect work-appropriate attire. The print on print action adds an element of fun to this conservative look. Still, I couldn’t help myself. Had to add a pop of color with a bright yellow resin chain necklace. I think I look pretty put together for a day in the office. Nobody has to know that this was a 5 minute look, right? So let’s keep this between me and you, k? Happy Hump Day; we are almost there!

Printed Wrap Dress: Banana Republic (Gemma), $69.99 (paid $36). I purchased this during a 40% off sale. Today (8/13) until 12PM, get $60 off your purchase of $150, $40 off $100 or $20 off $50. Use code BRTIME at checkout. The Gemma wrap dress comes in many colors and prints:
