Ready for Spring

With the weather finally warming up, I finally feel comfortable baring my legs without screaming because it feels like my skin is about to freeze off. LOL. I’m more of a pants gal, but I occasionally enjoy wearing skirts and dresses, especially if they’re pretty like this yellow Eliza J dress.

This dress is old (purchased last year). I encourage you to look in your closets for some floral dresses you may have purchased in previous years before purchasing another. With a styling tweak here and there, such as styling midi dresses with sneakers instead of sandals or heels, you can create some new looks.

OR

You could even thrift for one!

If, after looking through your closet, you find that you don’t own any floral dress, I’ve linked some options for you below – some yellow, some not. Take your pick! 😊

I love the button detail that goes down the entire front of this Free People dress. You can totally wear it with lavender heels like the model here, black strappy sandals, white chunky sneakers, etc.

This Lulus dress would be super cute to wear to work or brunch with white slides or sling back flats! Love the mock neck detail!

This Leith dress is really pretty with the ruffles and the big floral print. It’s perfect to wear to spring/summer weddings.

This All In Favor wrap dress isn’t a midi dress, but it comes in a variety of pretty colors and prints.

How cute is this dress from WAYF? I would wear it the way they styled it here, or until the weather gets warmer, you can even wear it with brown boots!

Thanks for reading!

I know, I know. We’re several days into March. I’ve been busy with work and school. School, especially, has been mercilessly kicking my butt. I have to say, though, struggling with my course load is serving as a great distraction from online shopping. LOL

Because of how busy I’ve been with school, I managed to wrap up Frugal Finds Fab-ruary without much difficulty. In case you didn’t have a chance to read the post on my February project, below are the terms I set for myself for the entire month:

  1. Shop within a set clothing budget of $150.
  2. Only purchase preloved/secondhand pieces.
  3. Share the price of each and every item I purchase.
  4. Put whatever funds I have left in the $150 budget into paying my car loan.

I own a few Eileen Fisher pieces, and I find the designs simple, beautiful and elegant. They can be a bit pricey though, so I see them as investments. They will last for years since they are so classic and timeless. Just when I thought I couldn’t love the brand more, I fell in love with their stance on sustainable and ethical practices in the fashion industry.

I have heard so many good things about Everlane, especially their jeans. So when they were having their Choose What You Pay sale, I placed an order on the last day of 2018 (the day before Nothing New January began LOL) After having worn some of the pieces I’ve ordered, I wanted to share my thoughts on the pieces and Everlane as a brand.
