GAP Midi Wrap Dress & A Few More

 Short Sleeve Midi Dress/Hat/Shoes: Old/Purse: Old

Hello! My hubby and I went shopping together this weekend! I told him I'd like to shop for dresses and he volunteered to go.  Surprised but happy to oblige, we hopped into our family mobile and headed to the mall. Since I had a $30 credit at the GAP we stopped in there. Success came quickly (thank goodness - he isn't as patient as my MIL), starting off with this short sleeve midi wrap dress. Boy is that a mouthful! My husband liked this one immediately and seemed a tad disappointed that I wanted to try on ALL the ones I pulled of the racks! I'm giggling right now. He didn't understand the concept! And his commentary on the dresses that followed cracked me up.
"That dress looks like my grandmother's curtains!"
"You look like a nurse or something in that dress."

Anyway, I went home with two dresses from that day. This wrap dress was less than $20 with the extra markdowns and credit. Online it's marked down to $32 (with an extra 20% off right now) and available in a few sizes! Okay, here's a few more shots, as well as grandma's dress and the nurse uniform. I'll let you guess which was which, as well as what other dress I brought home!

 It was a windy day so the hat came off. Side note: wrap dresses are dangerous on windy days - just saying!

  3. Your husband's commentary cracked me up! I can tell which one was the nurse's uniform and which one was grandma's curtains!!! Ha! You got a great deal on a dress that looks fantastic on you and I'm guessing I know which of the other dresses came home with you!

  6. Bless Glen's heart! I can't remember the last time Wayne went shopping with me! He's more the chauffer these days and just drops me off and then picks me up. Can't say that I don't enjoy it, though! Love the dress, Chrissy! A nice addition to your sunny wardrobe!

    1. Haha! I was surprised when he said he wanted to go with me. However, he knew we were going to Dick's sporting goods after so that may have been it!

  7. Love the dress. I’m thinking the nurse dress is the gray with skinny straps and grandma dress is the one with sleeves

  8. My husband is the same way with shopping and doesn't understand the concept of trying things on and continuing to look! Wrap dresses are so flattering! Your's looks so pretty styled with the CAUSEBOX scarf! Gap has so many cute dresses this season! Love the cami floral print too!

    1. I need to try shopping online more, especially considering some of my favorite stores are local and I could easily return items that don't fit!

  12. Haha it's funny what "men" think about certain fashions. I love the dress and the fact it's a wrap dress because it really has that classic shape!

  15. I love the Gap! I think you made a good choice with the Midi Wrap. I giggled at the husband quote "Looks like my grandmothers curtains". Haha I hear that every time I try on a floral or plaid print. Husbands are adorable.

  16. Men are certainly opinionated when it comes to women's clothes lol. I am glad your trip to Gap was a success and that both of the dresses you chose were darling. Wink Wink* I know which was the second dress you chose and I am so happy you are wearing it for a special post, later this week. Looking forward to the blog birthday party, btw.

    You and your husband looked great in your Easter getups. I am a sucker for a good wrap dress, especially one with a hi-lo style like yours is in the front. Super flattering. I love it with the wedges and Summer fedora. Great styling. =) Beautiful dress on you and what a great price!

    In my latest post I talk a little bit about Michigan and its great lakes. =) Come check it out and join my Thursday Moda Linkup on Thursdays, too. Looking forward to my Birthday Blog party too and you being one of the bloggers I invited. =)

    Thanks, Ada. =)

  17. Such a cute dress! It's sweet hubby went shopping with you! Mine hates shopping and is never very helpful with his comments on the clothes if I ask him, haha!

    Thank you so much for joining the #weekdayWearLinkUp :)

    Hope that you are having a wonderful weekend :)

  18. Have been away from home and all things Internet for some time in order to care for my mom. Just now catching up on my blog reading and writing.

    My daughter is home this weekend for a visit and she, too, had the cutest midi-length dress from Gap. It looks very similar to yours = a beautiful blue and white print. Love the way you change it up with accessories, the hat, the scarf, and jacket. You are just the cutest thing. Glad you and your hubs enjoyed a trip to the mall together. And what a great deal you scored.
