20 Easy Dresses for Spring

Despite the 9″ or so inches of snow we just got, it’s now officially March, which means spring must be on its way. (Right?) And we all know that spring means cute dresses. Not that I’ve ever let winter really stop me from wearing dresses, but there’s just something about spring that seems to demand it. With the new knits on the market today, there are some great, easy, pieces. I’ve put together 20 of my favorite simple dresses for spring, ones that you can run around in and still look and feel good.
