Happy first day of spring everyone! It's no real secret that the Spring and Summer are my favorite times of year, so I'm really excited that it's actually "officially" here (even though we did get 6 inches of snow earlier this week). I started some "spring cleaning" this week and it got me thinking about what I'm really excited to wear this summer, and things I'd like to buy and make, so I thought it'd be fun to talk about here!
LACEY WHITE DRESS
I've been a huge believer in the little white dress for a long time, and am especially fond of a light, lacey one for summer. I love how the girl on the right paired her dress with brown loafers, it gives it such a dressed down, casual vibe that I love! I adore all the details on this ModCloth dress, so sweet and lovely!
"Florals for spring? Groundbreaking" I know! Hah. I'm generally not a huge floral person (I used to have one floral dress and got rid of it last year), but I've been seeing some floral prints I'm just in love with this year. I love this sweet one from ShopRuche. I can see throwing on a army jacket or something with it in the spring to give it a little boyish flare, or just throwing it on by itself for a day at the beach in the summer.
FUN PRINTED MAXI'S
Last year it seemed everyone was wearing those comfy, plain jersey maxi dresses. Lately I've been in love with maxi dresses covered in really fun prints. I love how both the above girl's dresses are still really feminine, and just gorgeous. How incredible is this Anthropologie Dress? It's way out of my price range, but I will definitely be keeping my eyes out for some similar fabric this spring so I can make my own version!
I'm not usually one to talk about "underthings", but I'm totally obsessed with the strappy bras they have right now at Free People! I love how they look super comfy, and are meant to be "shown off". It's always hard to hide bra straps during the summer anyway, so I think it may be a stroke of genius to make them super cute so that not only do you not have to worry about them peeking out, but you can show them off without it looking "scandelous" heh! (shown here – Strappy Back Bra + Strappy Front Bra)
What are you guys excited to wear in the warm weather?
