Spring Fashion

30 Mar

I love when the weather starts to change and shorts, skirts, dresses and short sleeve shirts come out of the depths of my closet.  Warm weather is right around the corner and it is time for me to update my wardrobe.  As many of my readers and friends know, I am all about simple basics and then changing the look with accessories, accessories and more accessories.  I love dressing down an outfit through shoes, purses, jewelry or glamming it up the same way.

Below, you will find my top picks for spring!

Easter Dress

I found this dress at Express.  I’m not a huge fan of pastels, but in spring I can just eat them up!  I think this dress is so feminine and soft looking.  Perfect for spending Easter with the family.  I would pair this dress with nude heels, and a metallic clutch to give this look a little bit of edge.


Cocktail Party

OMG, I am SOOOO in love with this dress I found at BCBG.com.  I think it is just perfect.  It is sweet, elegant and those ruffles are out of this world fun!  Since I am a gold ADDICT, I would wear strappy gold heals, gold chandelier earrings and then pair this with either a white, gold or a bold turquoise clutch.  So AMAZING!  The price is a little steep but pretty typically for BCBG at $398. 


Casual Day Dress

I also found this dress at BCBG.com.  I can picture myself wearing this to meet up with friends for cocktails outside on a restaurant patio and for just running errands in style!  🙂  I love how it is so plain on the top and then belted to cinch the waist.  Plus the bottom is fun and flirty!  I just love this look!  Since it is spring I would pair it with either strappy flats or strappy sandals with a heel.  I would also skip all jewelry in favor of some big sunglasses and my normal everyday huge purse!  This dress is a reasonable $148.  I think I may have to order one and reward myself for working hard this week!  : )


Ultra Casual Day Dress

Since, I’m clearly on a BCBG kick, I will throw in one more dress from them.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE this ultra casual dress.  Plus with a price tag of only $48 bucks, there’s no reason not to love it!  To add a little fun to this dress, I would add any color skinny belt to cinch the waist.  Throw on a pair of your favorite chandelier earrings, sunglasses and cute pair of sandals and you are ready to go.  I can totally see myself wearing this look first thing in the morning when I’m trying to look cute to run errands but haven’t showered yet!  It’s classy, springy and SUPER cute! 


Cute Top

I found this cute Tory Burch (love) top at Saks.com.  I love the metallic detail it has and would totally wear this with dark skinny jeans, gold bangles and a summer white or gold bag.  I can see myself wearing this while traveling, going to a baseball game, happy hour or just hanging out on the weekend.  I also think in summer it would be super stylish with a pair of cute white shorts!  It is on the spendy side at $228, but it is something you could wear over and over again and change the look.  Heck, you could even wear it into fall, just throw a fitted blazer over it and slip on a pair of boyfriend jeans!  Perfection!


Night Out

I think this top I found at VictoriaSecret.com is amazingly sexy and fun for a hot spring night.  I would opt to bring a cardigan to throw over this once the sun sets and a little chill is in the air.  A short fitted jacket/blazer would work as well.  I think this is such a fun outfit when you are in the mood to be seen and cut loose!  I love the white shorts paired with this top to bring a little innocence to the outfit (you could also pair it with black shorts) and also love the gold bracelets the model is wearing.  I would probably wear gold heels or wedges with this and complete the look with a gold purse.  This top is reasonably priced and on sale for $47.60


Anytime Dress

I found this fun and flirty dress by Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s at Kohls.com.  I think it is a really fun piece and has a terrific price at $60.  I could see myself wearing this over to a friend’s home for a spring BBQ .  I would wear my hair parted at the center and wavy or with half pulled back loosely.  Since the dress is a little bit busy (with the print and tiers), I would throw on a simple bracelet and wear some earth tone flat sandals.  Such a romantic and sweet look!

So there you have it, my spring fashion finds.

    Super fab choices! I saw that top dress at Express on Saturday and totally debated trying it on. I’m in desperate need of a dress to wear to a wedding in May and that could work.

    Also love BCBG clothing — it fits me like a glove!

    LOVE that Easter dress! Fashion is a funny thing for me right now (being pregnant and all)- I’m going for the more form fitted vs. flowy pregnancy look 🙂

    • Kjirsten- Balanced Healthy Life March 31, 2011 at 6:34 am #

      I think I would be all about the more form fitted too! I think I would feel bigger than I already felt in flowly looks!

    I’m in love with the BCBG dress. It is adorable. I hate how expensive they are for real or I’d buy out the store.

    Love the LC dress from Kohls. I’m not sure how the tiered effect would look on me but I’m sure you’ll rock it.
