Today was the first time on the east coast, once the rain stopped, that a tease of Spring was upon us. I didn’t have to wear a jacket! This was super exciting, but it reminded me that I haven’t done much shopping for the warm months ahead. Last year at this time, I was buying maternity clothes, so I am happy to be back in the the non-preggers section of the store and I’m excited to stock-up and add to my wardrobe now that I am not pregnant.
For me, during the Spring, the easiest way to look easily put together in an instant is with a dress. You can dress it up, dress it down, add fun accessories - a belt, statement necklace - you can make the look yours as you head off to the playground. When you throw on a dress, you instantly looked polished and well put together. And honestly, I think it is easier to throw on a dress than squeeze into your skinnies. Right? I am all about the perfect dress!
I’ve narrowed down my favorite choices that will flatter any shape, style and budget!
