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!

A Sundressed Summer

Its time to bare those beautiful legs and break out your sundresses, shorts, and skirts! It’s getting hot out there and the less “clingage” the better. 🙂 We’re looking for that light, carefree look with a sun-kissed face and summer glow.

Sundresses are fabulous for those hot summer days. They are easy to throw on and loose enough to breath, eliminating perspiration and that claustrophobic feeling of clinging clothes. These cotton dresses can be un-shapley at times and are perfect to accessorize with a belt. Use that extra fabric to your advantage by bunching it together at the waste or hips, causing it to drape and slouch. When you tie it all together with a belt, or even a scarf, you create shape and femininity giving your look a carefree and relaxed attitude.

Lets take some inspiration from a Disney Classic:

Ariel, the little mermaid herself, knows what its like to live both “under the sea” and “warm on the sand.” In the middle of summer, both are important. To the left is the look that inspired my thoughts on sundresses and summer style.

Just look at how Ariel wears a simple cloth and rope still managing to maintain shape, depth, and texture. She just looks ready to have fun, relax and perhaps, “explore that world up above?” 😉

Here are a couple outfits we put together to show you how you can make Ariel’s style “Part of Your World”:

Play with your dresses, belts, and scarfs to make it work for you. Try adding aariel flower flower pin to the side of your belt, or for-go the hole and buckle and tie your belt in a knot to hold it together. These variations add character and uniqueness, separating your style. Keep it simple with your accessories adding a sunhat and sandals or, hair piece such as a flower or head band. Be cool this summer and enjoy that sunshine!
