Printed wrap dress & Fancy Friday linkup

printed wrap dress

Sometimes you can find those gems at the H&M. Like this printed wrap dress. Well you might think, isn’t that a bit exaggerated? It’s just H&M he! Yes, I know that, but gems don’t always have to be expensive and exclusive. Years and years ago, but really a long time ago, something like 30 years ago. Gosh, that’s just about half a human life, if you’re out of luck….. If you are very unlucky even a whole life.

Well, where does that suddenly come from? We were talking about clothes! Anyway, back then I immediately loved the tiny shop they opened in Arnhem, because they were selling very different and original clothing. I was a fan for years and often bought there. As I grew older I often found their collections to be so basic and even boring and only bought lingerie there. Well, I still don’t like the collections in the summer. Too basic, too boring, too smooth. But often I can get excited in the fall and winter. Like this set, of which I am totally a fan, but what about this dress? A faux wrap dress in colors that I almost never wear, but I think it’s beautiful.

You know I love printed wrap dresses!

The most adorable wrap dress for me, of course, are the Diane von Furstenberg dresses. I have three pre loved ones by her design. You can admire them here and here. I always think wrap dresses are so feminine and I love to wear boots under a dress. And these dresses are perfect for wearing boots underneath. This printed wrap dress is also super nice to wear with a cardigan over it. But on this day it was still very spontaneously warm, at the end of September, and I could just wear it with bare legs and without a jacket or cardigan. This was a lovely bargain. So you see, it doesn’t always have to be expensive to look stylish.wrap dress with grey bootsfashion outfit with a dressstatement ringprinted wrap dress with grey and brown and whitefashion blogger's outfitprinted wrap dressMy new wrap dressWould really appreciate it if you would share my outfit on Pinterest!

    What a beautiful dress. I was just in the mall today and did a little window browsing when we walked past H&M (didn’t have time to go in) and I def. need to go back and check them out.

    It’s funny you mentioned your love of wrap dresses because the first thing I thought when I saw this look was “That’s definitely so Nancy!” You always look ladylike a put together and nobody rocks a wrap dress like you!

    Nancy, you are so right that fashion doesn’t have to be expensive. Some of my favorite pieces were very inexpensive. Wrap dresses are such an ageless style–they look good on everyone, and especially on you! The print on this one is so very cute. Love the boots, too!

    Happy weekend,
    xx Darlene

    The wrap dress really does suit you, Nancy. I love the way that we can wear different footwear and something will still look good, and current. Let’s not forget current! Sadly, a wrap dress is a style which has never suited me, however I still ove them.

    I am a huge fan of neutral prints, and this black/cream/taupe (?) is wonderful. I have a few H&M pieces that are surprisingly nice (for H&M!), and that I treasure.

    You look fabulous, Nancy! I’ve joined you with my own favourite neutral look from last week, my grey outfit.

    I’ve had several H&M wrap dresses over the years, and this one is particularly gorgeous. I used to buy at H&M all th time too when they just opened their first Antwerp shop, and I still sometimes have a browse if they have a sale on. xxx

    Nancy, you exude such a confidence. Such a beautiful sense of yourself. You could make anything look stylish!! But DVF wrap dresses are pretty spectacular.

    I was in H&M today and took a dozen photos of things I would love to have. It is crazy for me to want so many new pieces when I don’t work and don’t really go anywhere worthy of dressing up. But I love fall clothing, the sweaters, the blazers, the blouses, the skirts.

    Theresa’s look is charming. Love her textured hose. And her pretty lip color peeking from under her dress.
