Pinterest Mondays: It’s a Wrap!
Jun 23, 2014
1. Modcloth Wrap Party Dress ($50) // 2. LoveQuotes Tassel Scarf ($88) // 3. Long Circle Link Necklace ($38) // 4. H&M Tote ($35) // 5. Renegade Cluster Bracelet ($49), Christina Link Bracelet ($49) and Marc Jacobs Bolt Cuff ($93) // 6. BP Moveover Flat ($49) // 7. Tory Burch Cat Eye ($149)
Today’s outfit comes from the archives of Blair Eadie’s blog, Atlantic-Pacific. The original features a wrap maxi-dress from DvF, but since an ivory scarf is a year-round staple for me, I decided to shorten the length. Here’s how to recreate it.
One. A blue and white patterned wrap dress can be used as the foundation for many summery color combinations. Sizes for sale in this dress are limited, but I’ve found a few similar dresses. BCBG’s Adele dress has a fun, modern print. I also found two short-sleeve dresses from Karen Kane, one in a dark blue print, one in a mixed-blue paisley. And don’t miss this discounted Laundry dress in a blue wave print.
Two. LoveQuotes is my favorite brand of scarf for voluminous scarves in a multitude of colors. I also love this Pom Travel Scarf from Terrain with similar fringe to the scarf in the photo. For $50, I think I need that scarf.
Three. A long chain is a great way to accessorize a wrap dress. This long chain from Nordstrom is a great choice. It’s a basic with style.
Four. This simple tote is a great bag for the weekends or for work. I’m not sure how the quality is on this H&M tote, but I own this Banana Republic Ashbury tote and it’s well-made.
Five. This stack of bracelets is a great mix of materials, textures and sizes. If you’re concerned about the metal tone wearing off of your jewelry, the Stella & Dot pieces seem to hold up better than most brands.
Six. How many times can I promote the BP Moveover flats? They really are a great shoe that comes in a great selection of colors and textures. If you’re not crazy about the red, you could easily choose orange or coral flats. If you prefer softer tones, try these mint green ones from Ivanka Trump.
