Some dresses just look like Spring threw up on them, in the best way possible. This Dirty Ballerina dress is so one of those dresses. Wearing this dress made me feel like I was on my way to a garden party, expecting to sip tea and eat biscuits. (Quite the imagination, huh?)
If a garden party isn’t in your near future, any beautiful Spring day would be the perfect time to rock this feminine frock. The material is lush, yet breathable and the asymmetrical hemline is an edgy little surprise on such a girly piece.
I will say the dress runs a bit large, so opt for a size smaller. I can easily see myself pairing it with a some gladiator sandals for a weekend look that would so put me in the seasonal spirit!
As much as I love rompers, I think I may own only two! I actually have the hardest time finding a fit that I like. Whether it’s the length or neckline, I never seem to find an all around fit for me. Until this pretty little floral romper that just had to come home with me.
The gorgeous floral pattern and colors is what first grabbed my attention, then the adorable ruffled hem and cap sleeves. So cute! I had to have. I was walking around a lot this day, so I opted for some tie up gladiator sandals. I can so see this romper looking fab with a pair of raffia or cork wedges too!
I hope you all are having a beautiful week so far, remember to soak in the little things everyday!
“Rained gently last night, just enough to wash the town clean, and then today a clean crisp fat spring day, the air redolent, the kind of green minty succulent air you’d bottle if you could and snort greedily on bleak, wet January evenings when the streetlights hzzzt on at four in the afternoon and all existence seems hopeless and sad.”
How’s that for vividly beautiful literary description? That snippet from is from a wonderfully lyrical book that reminds me exactly of how this day felt while snapping these pictures. I couldn’t imagine a more appropriate outfit to wear on that Spring day. Soft, breathable fabrics. Sandals that let your toes feel the warmth of the sun (and make it easy to get barefoot in the grass quickly). And a shady hat that keeps your eyes from squinting, so you can truly enjoy the sunshine.
I remember telling my fiance this day, “This day and this outfit make me want to stroll around forever. Just taking all this fresh warm air in….and drinking a iced latte. Yes, I definitely need an iced latte.
Have you ever experienced this? It may sound silly that clothes can make me feel this giddy, but I believe in the small things. And when everything aligns with a perfectly detailed day, I’m in heaven.
I love a white on white look. It’s crisp and perfect for any season….regardless what some lame “fashion rules” might say. You can wear white whenever and with whatever!
And is there anything better than adding a pop of color and/or print to the mix? I decided on the beautiful coral from a cross-body bag and the leopard print on my sandals. This kind of outfit is perfect for Spring or Summer. And seriously, how easy is it to grab pieces of the same color and make it work? It’s no wonder it’s one of my favorite looks…it’s so easy to out together!
I hope your week has been amazing! And we can all get excited, because tomorrow is FRA-YAY.
I think everyone should take advantage of the beauty of sunsets. Because sunrises occur during most of us snoozing away, the beauty of a sun rising is less likely caught. But taking a moment to take in the sun going to rest is as simple as a walk outside or look out of your window. I just love sunsets. As you can tell, they make me feel all kinds of feelings! Hashtag why am I so emotional?
Anyway, I’m bringing yet another breezy look your way today. This time, it’s a little more feminine-and I love it. When I was little I used to tell my mom, “Mom, if I could wear a pretty dress everyday I would!”. And while I do love my cutoffs and BF jeans, I think I still feel that way.
This dress is $15. Yes, that’s it. And while I can’t find my sandals anywhere (I promise I search the internet high and low!) these sandals are very similar andddddd I may have to buy them too. Because hello my name is Krista and I’m addicted to shoes. You can find them on sale here, although they’re running out of sizes so be quick!
So, this Spring I’ll be looking all girly in my Spring dresses and staring in awe at the beautiful sunsets and perfect nature that surrounds us. I hope you do too!
