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’m a huge fan of white dresses, especially in the spring and summer months when it really doesn’t feel right to wear black. However, my big thing with white is always adding a pop of color. I can’t do all white…it’s too bland for my taste. For a flirty white dress, I’m inclined to wear red heels and a red lip, to channel that classic retro vibe. For this look I also added an emerald green clutch, and kept the rest of my accessories simple. This particular dress could go for day or night, but here I wore it for an evening dinner in historic Claremont village.
