Springtime Is For Dainty Dresses

Spring is easily my favorite season.  The weather warms, flowers bloom, and fashion gets fun!  Don’t get me wrong – I love fall fashion with its chunky sweaters, tailored coats, and boots galore. But spring fashion is much more bright and colorful, not to mention light and breezy.  When spring styles start hitting the stores, I start thinking sunshine and tropical vacations.  It literally makes me FEEL good, like a breath of fresh air.  Speaking of air, blue is a major color story this spring, and it’s an especially popular color for dresses (mostly lighter shades or subtle stripes).  Unfortunately for my wallet, I have a thing for blue dresses. I won’t even tell you how many I own in various iterations, however I didn’t own a lace version until now.  I’ve seen multiple takes on the blue lace dress this spring, and this particular dress was the right style at the right price.  I wore it for Easter brunch last month, but it could easily be worn for a Mother’s Day event or a spring/summer wedding.

I knew right away that I’d wear this dress with my favorite pair of pointed-toe pumps by Sam Edeleman. Unfortunately the shoes are from a few seasons back, so I can’t link to the exact style, but here’s a similar option.  I also love the way the color of the dress plays with these beautiful Kendra Scott earrings (bonus they’re on sale right now)! I kept it interesting with a metallic lip to add a bit of edge.  The lipstick is Lime Crime’s metallic velvetine in “mercury”. I’m obsessed with Lime Crime’s velvetine line because the (liquid) lipstick is easy to apply and once it sets it won’t budge.  Plus the colors are not something you see everyday.  I personally love this look and hope to wear it again soon in some variation. You can buy this beautiful dress via Nordstrom, which is awesome because they offer free shipping and free return shipping (or easy returns in store)!
