Floral Bell Sleeve Dress

Who doesn’t love bell sleeves? Sad people? The same people who think chocolate is gross, or that Titanic is a bad movie? I really don’t know the answer to that question, but I do know that bell sleeves are amazing, and I can’t see why anyone would think otherwise! I love this dress so much. From the sleeves, to the pattern, to the fact that it can be transitioned through the seasons, makes this dress a great staple to your closet. Plus, it can be dressed up or down! I dressed it down for this post, with my sandals and sun hat, but it can easily be  dressed up as well, for a special occasion like a wedding or party (hint…hint…future blog post, perhaps?). All you have to do to transition this dress from summer to fall, is throw on some black tights underneath, and some tall black boots, and you are good to go! Maybe even add a black fur vest for extra coziness. Can you tell that I’m really excited for colder weather? Come on, -ember months, I need you!

I hope you all are having a great week! I am heading to Florida next week for a vacation with my boyfriend and his family, and I’m so excited! Keep an eye out for pictures!

Floral Green Maxi

Let me just start by saying, that if you want to go running around on some hills while singing tunes from The Sound of Music, than boy, do I have the dress for you. This dress is so beautiful, and the fabric flows in a way that makes even the most ungraceful person (eh-hem…myself) look like they are one with the wind.

Maxi dresses are so comfortable, and if you have read my past blog posts, you know that I always appreciate comfort. This dress is so comfortable, yet so beautiful on. The color is a gorgeous green, and I love the feminine, floral pattern. It also comes in two other colors: a soft ivory, and black. The neckline and sleeves are great on this as well, and I often find that a v-neck with sleeves combination is the most universally flattering look on women of all body types.

How was everyone’s Easter? I spent the day doing homework and getting a solid sunburn by the pool, but it was a happy holiday! Summer break is right around the corner and I’m having so much fun planning outfits for summer blog posts! Now I just have to think about what colors go well with a sunburn….

The Perfect Easter Dress

IMG_2751IMG_2621IMG_2662IMG_2685IMG_2545IMG_2565IMG_2500IMG_2676IMG_2487

Happy Monday, everybody!! This past weekend was so gorgeous, and I had an absolute blast soaking up the sun! And by soaking up the sun, I mean working all weekend and writing a paper…so maybe I didn’t really get to enjoy it as much as I would have liked, but at least I was able to witness some sunny and 75°.

Speaking of sunny and 75°, I have the perfect dress for this perfect weather. With Easter right around the corner, it is absolutely adorable for such an occasion. I bought this dress when I was in Savannah, Georgia a few weeks ago, and I wasn’t expecting it to look as good as it did. I was pleasantly surprised! I styled this dress with just a simple chunky-heeled sandal (These shoes are amazing!!! They give you some height, but are incredibly comfortable), and some dangly earrings. But I would adore this dress with a cute sun hat, or a pair of cowgirl boots! The pastel stripes and ruffle add a feminine flare that is perfect for Spring.

So go grab this dress if you’re looking for a fun Easter Egg Hunt ensemble! Boy, those were the good old days. Now the only Easter Egg Hunts I participate in are hiding Reese’s Eggs in my mouth…
