Have you ever looked at a dress across the room and just knew it was going to be perfect? I could see this Gracia sundress poking out of a rack from across Bloomingdales and just knew. Yes, I'm talking about love at first site...with a dress. The perfect striped sundress.

If you follow me on SnapChat (TrendySparrow), you may recognize this cutie from the dressing room. As soon as I put it on, I was smitten. It hooks in the front through the buckle strap, making it almost like a trench coat dress. I always love the way wrap dresses or trench dresses fit; so this combo dress was the best of both.

Plus...it has pockets. SOLD. I'm a huge sucker for anything with pockets. Combine those with a wrap cut and a lapel collar? You can better believe I was head over heels. Why do I love a wrap cut/trench style so much? It does two incredible things. The first is make your waist look smaller (YAASS), and the second is that it makes someone like me who is...less than endowed...actually look like I have boobs for once (double YAASS).

I wanted to let the dress be the main feature in this look, so I kept accessories to a minimum. Simple knot sandals and a classic white crossbody kept this look clean and sharp. I wanted to look polished and put together while back in Lubbock, Texas. You wouldn't believe the number of "she doesn't go here" looks I got while we were out! But you know what? I'm a firm member of #TeamOverdressed.
