That's a wrap.

I am a mom. And I love being a mom. I do. It is the greatest a challenge and blessing in my life. That said, I do not want to look like a mom. That may be the greatest challenge. One way I try to pull off the non-mom look is with fun sweaters and jackets.  A pair of jeans and white t-shirt can be instantly transformed into a semi-stylish ensemble merely by adding another layer.  The jacket section of my closet consumes an embarrassing amount of real estate.  But truly, this little trick works like a charm.

Well, suffice to say, this little number caught my eye.  Imagine the possibilities!  Twelve, count 'em, 12 ways to wear the DKNY cozy.  Which makes the $198 price tag palatable -- only $16.50 per look!




















When the other moms in carpool ask how you manage to always look so put-together, it's your choice:  tell them or it can be our little secret.

Thank you for this post!! I love the idea of maintaining a sense of style while juggling diapers and bottles. It's not always easy. :o)

Loving that sweater, but wondering if it's going to go the same way my sling did - could never figure out how to get the darn thing on right :). Hope there is a YouTube video I can watch.

I may not be able to figure out all 12 either (nor could I see me wearing it off the shoulder), but # 2, 4, 5 and 10 will be my go-to styles.

Fascinating! I sort of want one but not at that price. Hopefully Target will come out with something similar. Maybe half the price for half the looks?

Target will have a version before the temps hit 70 (at least in Texas).

Dude - you're blog is so cute and I LOVE the background!!! I also LOVE this wrap - I am totally getting one and living in it! Years ago (showing my age - like 20 + years ago) there was a whole clothing company devoted to styles like this that could be worn in 10 different ways. I still for the life of me - can't remember what it was called. It was really cool though! - I'll bet DKNY knows - 'cause it was just like this hot number! -kg

Units! That was the company that sold the crazy pieces you could wear a million different ways. Yes. I am that old too!
