It feels like spring

Pin It

So as we all know, the weather has been pretty crazy lately. A couple weeks ago, we had the single-digit weather. Today I'm taking full advantage of the 60-degree weather and wearing my new dress in bare legs. I've always admired the iconic Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress but I know I can't afford one. Hence, I am always on the lookout for similar (and affordable) versions. Jean tweeted about this dress a while a back and it was truly love at first sight for me. Unfortunately, small sizes are long gone online and it was nowhere to be found in stores. I basically gave up looking for it.

 

What I am wearing:
Dress: GAP printed wrap dress - size XSP (gifted by Jean)
Jacket: Ann Taylor Boulevard trench (buy this year's version)
Necklace: Amrita Singh Montauk (buy similar)
Sunglasses: Kate Spade Gayla
Nail polish: Revlon Vixen



Imagine my excitement when I got a text from the thoughtful Jean letting me know that she found the dress but it didn't work out for her. A few days later, the dress showed up at my door. I couldn't help but wear it the very next day. The print is absolutely stunning in person. This is my third wrap dress from Old Navy/Gap and by far, my most favorite one.



As much as I love my first wrap dress from Old Navy, I wish the quality was a bit better. As for the second one from GAP, the quality is decent but it was a little roomy throughout on me. This one is just simple perfect. Third time's a charm, right? =) I love the versatility and comfort of a wrap dress. This is one of those transitional dresses that will take me from winter to spring in a flash. Hope everyone is enjoying the warmer weather before the cold front rolls through later in the week
