gone wild at work

Despite the rainy day, I put on one of my favorite wrap dresses this morning!

Admittedly, I did wear my rain boots during my commute to work. My rain boots ended up matching my nails- always a bonus! I switched to my platform heels once I got to work. Savvy commuting is definitely fashionable!

I added my pumps and Charming Charlie find to complete the look. This dress is definitely a few years old, but I keep it looking fresh by changing out my accessories.

Dress: Banana Republic ($20 at the factory outlet, marked down from approx $50)

Tank top: Old Navy ($5)

Necklace: Charming Charlie ($3.50 marked down from $14)

Shoes: Jellypop at DSW ($12 marked down from $60)

Fashion Huntress tips:

1) Some styles are classics; I include wrap dresses in the “classics” category of my wardrobe. Even though this dress is a few years old, I added a trendy necklace to keep it looking brand new. You can rotate your classic pieces for as long as you want. Update the piece by changing out your shoes and accessories. I cannot say it enough: fashion on a budget is all about rotation!

2) Most wrap dresses, like chiffon or sheer pieces, require a slip underneath. Transition wrap dresses from day to night by ditching the tank top or camisole underneath, if you want. When at work, however, keep it classy and not low cut. Appropriate coverage is always in style!

Happy almost midweek, readers!
