Spring is almost here and while we’ve been lucky to have a taste of spring weather (hello, 70 degrees!), there’s still a little layering to be done this season. Having styles for these transitional months is essential and I absolutely adore pairing flirty, feminine dresses with edgy layers and details. You may remember this floral midi dress I snagged in my first Trunk Club and it’s such a sweet staple. I personally love having midi dresses in my collection because they’re versatile and flattering and can easily bridge the gap between seasons.

This particular style is definitely one you can wear in the spring and summer months with strappy sandals and wedges, as well as into fall and winter with cozy cardigans and outerwear. I added an edgy vibe with a moto jacket here but a denim jacket would work well for spring, as well!

I love how this midi dress has subtle puff sleeves for interest plus the perfect slit placement, so it doesn’t become too dowdy which a floral, long-sleeve midi dress can definitely do. It also nips in at the waist just enough.

I can’t wait to keep this dress in rotation for spring and summer. It’s a great little staple to have on-hand for casual days, date night and special events. Think Easter, Mother’s Day, weekend brunches, weddings, bridal showers, etc! For reference, I’m 5’6” and have the xs.

As always, thank you so much for reading!

Another day, another midi dress. By now, you can probably tell I’m very into this style lately. No shame. There’s just something about the effortless fit that makes me love throwing them on. I feel classic, feminine and chic in an instant and you don’t have to worry about showing anything off when you bend over? Win, win, win. These are perfect for running around town. And a classic striped midi dress? Even better.

I honestly thought this Vici striped midi dress was going to be more of a cotton fabric when I ordered it because I didn't read the description. I didn’t realize until it came that it was more of a slinky, polyester and spandex combination, but I ended up loving that because it’s wrinkle-free, super stretchy and perfectly swingy. This would be a great piece for travel!

I tossed it on with a denim jacket for a cooler evening but still kept it dressy with slide heels. Again, I love how you could also wear this with sandals or even sneakers for a casually cool vibe. For me, I think the key to midi dresses is having something that nips in at some part of your body and this does a great job of flattering the waist. I'm 5'6" and the length is great with both flats and heels. 

Thank you always for reading!

Every girl needs a little white dress to pull out of her closet for any occasion. From casual summer days to backyard bbq’s to date night and everything in between, I love to have something that’s easy to grab, easy to dress up or down and you just know it will always look (and feel) great.

This little white ruffle dress from Nordstrom BP is just that. I used to hesitate with midi lengths but now I think they’re the most flattering and effortless silhouette. For when a mini dress feels too "mini" or when a maxi dress feels too casual...a midi is just right. You can easily slip them on with sandals (and even sneakers) or dress them up with wedges and heels. When in doubt or if you're petite, stick to heels. I usually try to keep my footwear nude, light or monochrome (i.e. similar in tone to your dress) for a lengthening look down the leg line. 

Tip! When you’re looking for the perfect midi, it’s generally the right idea to find one that hits at the slimmest part of your calf, usually just above or just below the mid-calf. 

I really adore the feminine touch on this one thanks to the sweet ruffle details. The fitted bodice is super flattering and the open back shows just the right hint of skin. It's light and airy and the fresh white keeps it crisp and clean. You could easily edge this up with a faux leather motorcycle jacket into fall or keep it extra casual with a denim jacket. I'm a big fan of dresses that can do double duty for multiple seasons.

This little number is a steal at just $49 and I recommend sizing UP if you are in between sizes! I'm wearing a small. For reference, I'm 5'6". Also, please ignore my sticky bra sticking out. 🙈

As always, thank you for reading!
