Spring Has Sprung

We have officially entered the season of rainy with a chance of sunshine! The season of cherry blossoms, chirping birds, and budding tulips. The season where we celebrate Easter egg hunts and Christ’s miraculous resurrection. This is a season to celebrate and be thankful.

This is the season to wear a dress.

Dresses are my favorite type of clothing. They’re easy, relatively comfortable and don’t require a lot of accessories. Add a cute pair of heels and you’re good to go.

The last time I inventoried there were close to 50 dresses hanging in my closet (many with the tags still on). I’d like to think that no matter the occasion I’ll have a dress that coordinates perfectly. Beach wedding? I have a dress for that. Symphony tickets? I have a dress for that. Late night ice cream run? I have a dress for that (complete with elastic waistband).

When it comes to the Holidays, especially Christmas and Easter, I always like to wear one of my special dresses.Screen Shot 2016-03-23 at 8.59.58 AM You know what I mean… one of those dresses that make you feel beautiful, powerful, and feminine all at the same time. One of those dresses in which you feel you are your best self.

I love dresses and the feelings they inspire so much that I have searched the whole internet and found the perfect five to share with you! So if you don’t have an Easter dress just yet, allow me to help you. Here is a list of this spring’s loveliest dresses from some of our favorite brand names!

Do You Have the Time?

It seems part of our theme here at Lemonzest and Pearls is “so little time, so much to do.” When you are in the midst of a busy stage of life, keeping a schedule and staying on time and on track is essential for day to day life. After-all, “fashionably late” can only go so far and “better late then never” gets old fast. This is why I love a good watch. Functional fashion, two words that sum up one piece with so many possibilities. Watches sometimes get forgotten in the accessory category. From glamor to sport, watches come in all shapes and sizes, and can be worn with any wardrobe adding extra detail and punctuality to your look.

My favorite watches are Fossil. Fossil makes many different styles, faces, and unique bands from leather to ceramic. You can find one that speaks to you whether your style is sporty, preppy, trendy, fancy, or a little bit of everything. Watches with diamonds, different color faces, interchangeable bands, thick chain, thin chain, over-sized face, square face… its all here. And with their affordable prices and unbelievable warranty you can’t go wrong. Be careful… they are addicting!

Another popular brand for watches is Michael Kors. I’m sure you have seen one in every fashion magazine you have opened, the classic style is very popular and seems to be just as much of a wardrobe staple as the Michael Kors bag itself. I love the clean, classic and slightly masculine look Michael Kors includes in his watch designs. They look great against any outfit, and there is not much you can do to make them better. The Michael Kors watch is just “a goody.”

If you are the sporty type, there are plenty of popular watches that can track your workouts, your heart rate, and distance. Whether you just want something to wear with your new sneaks, or if your trying to reach a distance goal or beat your best time, there’s a watch that’s “fit” for you. Brands like Puma, Nike, and Garmin are all great for keeping you on “track” and on time.

Whichever style you choose, add some texture with a bracelet…or five 😉 and do try to ensure your metals match in your outfit. Earrings, necklaces, even belt buckles should all coordinate to visually pull your look together. Think of these pieces as connections that, despite whats going on in between, tie together and keep your look grounded.

Pick your fancy and “watch” and see just how much fashion, fun, and punctuality you can add to your personal style.

Have a Magical Day!
