Wrap it up...

Dress: B Moss / 3/4S Top: Shade / Tights: We Love Colors / Earrings: DC Street Market / Bracelets: J Crew final sale / Shoes: Miz Mooz via Amazon.com

Wrap dresses are so heavenly-ly { it could be a word } comfortable, but let's face it. They're not always the most exciting play in the book. Or closet. So my analogies need a bit of work.

To punch up one of my favorite, silky smooth, comfort-must-reign today dresses for a cold, thus-far dreary spring, I added colorful tights and earrings with a three-quarter sleeved top for warmth.

And you know what? I think it worked. In fact, I thought it worked so well that I did it again. This time the dress was already sleeved, and I just added tangerine tango { thank you, Pantone } tights with a bright necklace.

Dress, Shoes: Gabes (Ann Taylor, .....)  / Tights: J Crew final sale / Necklace: Dillard's gift card / Coat: DownEast

It kind of looks like my legs are on fire...or just really, really sunburned. Un coup de soleil? Non, merci!*

And that reminds me of how much I detest being told by practically everyone I ever cross on a sunny day that I'd better "watch out" in the sun. Because of my red hair of course.

Just for the record, I can only wish I had the delicate, porcelain skin most red-heads get, and I do know how to use sunblock, thankyouverymuch.

Sheesh. Bitter much? I think it's been a looooong week...I promise I'm not this touchy in person.

I struggle with wrap dresses too for the same reason - they can be so dull. I love how you spiced both of these up; especially the addition of the bright tights!

Ooh, I love those tomato red tights in those last photos! I think you definitely spiced up that wrap dress :)
