Last Friday my sister and I got away to the fields of Round Top, TX for the day! With little ones and schedules, this is very hard to do, but we pulled it off and had the best time (thanks to the people that made it possible)! My favorite moment was on the way home when we got Blizzard’s at DQ (gluten free, btw) and sang Tracy Chapman to each other with no background music. We are both tone deaf, so you can imagine how it sounded…it was bad, like nails of a chalk board, bad. It was so bad, we couldn’t stop laughing.
I wore this wrap, and guys, I have never been complimented so many times on a piece of clothing. Maybe it’s because it’s blue and white, or maybe it’s the way the wind blew the wrap and made it look so feminine, I’m really not sure. But I’ll take it! It put a little pep in my step. When I purchased this wrap, I was shopping with one of my friends. She and I had so much fun styling it in the dressing room, and I thought I’d share what we came up with! You can do these same things to oversized cardigans in the winter.
The first way, and my favorite way to wear a wrap, is to wear it like a shirt. This is the way I wore it most of the day to keep it out of the way.
This is a terribly goofy picture, but I included it to show you all how I wrapped it. I crisscrossed the front two strips in front and tied them behind me. Then I pulled up the back flap and tied the corners in front of me at the waist.
Or you can crisscross the front two strips, tie it in the back and let the back hang down.
You can also just tie it in the front.
Or just throw the front two strips over your shoulders. I had fun wearing it all of these different ways. I know there are more ways to wear it, and I can’t wait to experiment some more. I also can’t wait to wear this wrap with a long sleeve t-shirt and some flare jeans! How will you wear your wrap?
