Wrap (Dress) Me Up

A wrap dress like this one is seriously one of the easiest things to throw on when you can't be bothered to come up with an outfit. Just add some tights, a pair of boots, a few statement accessories and you're good to go!

These days, I've been living in variations of this outfit because those extra minutes of sleep seem to count for so much more in the wintery dark mornings. Surely I'm not the only one who feels this way?

  4. I love that your dress looks like the night sky! And I don't think it's that sleep counts for more during the winter but that your bed just feels so much better than the outside when it's colder.

  14. @MSFwithSarah Great pick!! I kind of want this dress in some other colours but I think that's a little overboard...

  16. Wrap dresses are fantastic and look fabulous on a lot of body types. I've been lusting for one from DVF, but surely I'll have to pay a pretty penny for one of her gorgeous dresses.

    You look fabulous in yours. I like how you styled it with tights and boots. :) Hope you're having a great day, hun!

    xx Love & Aloha

  17. Extra minutes of sleep always count, but especially on dark winter mornings! And if this has been your go-to ensemble, you're definitely looking stylish and well-rested :) I just love your boots, I had the same pair three years running but I wore them so much I kept wearing the heels off!

  18. @Cee I actually own two pairs of these boots (the exact same) because I wore the heels down so much. Finally got this pair resoled and now they're good as new!

  26. Beautiful outfit alison! Love the architectural bracelet!

    Definitely have your boyfriend get the bracelet for you! It's wonderful. The only flaw however is that it doesn't sit on your wrist perfectly - I have pretty small wrists so it just floats around and it hurts haha :(
