Seattle was so lucky last week to have record breaking highs for April. For three days in a row we had over 80 degree weather and I was loving every second of it. It made me excited to finally get to wear my spring dresses and be ready to enjoy the amazing sunshine! When searching for the perfect spring dress there are a few things I look for before it will meet the criteria for the “perfect” spring dress – I’m talking beyond the style or fit of the dress. Read on to discover the top three things I think can make or break the “perfect” criteria.
Beyond the style of a dress, I can’t stress enough how important it is to consider versatility. I love to look for dresses that I know will combine well with other pieces in my wardrobe. For example, I know that this dress can easily be layered with a moto jacket or a jean jacket. That immediately extends wearability so that I feel like I am wearing a different outfit every time.
I also look for dresses that have the ability to be styled in a variety of ways especially in the way of accessories. For this dress in particular, I knew how fun it would be to mix prints by adding this striped clutch. Can I just say how much I love print mixing?! It allows for such a fun and unexpected surprise. So fun that I chose to stick to a nude heel to let the contrast of the mixed prints in the clutch be the star.
Among the top things that I consider when looking for the perfect spring dress is the length. Before settling on this dress (which by the way is on super sale right now) I must have tried on about 6 different spring dresses that were all too short. Can you say #TALLGIRLPROBLEMS. Regardless, finding the right length isn’t just something that tall girls experience. Am I right ladies?! Every girl should be given the chance to find the perfect length for her body type and be ready to face the day in the self-assurance she deserves.
When I posted a sneak peek of these photos on my Instagram I received many comments how this color of dress is “my” color. And they’re right! Not only is cobalt blue one of my favorite colors at the moment, it is one of the colors in my color palette that looks best on my skin tone. It’s definitely a color I love to wear all year round and feel confident in. By wearing colors that make you look the best, you too will be able to conquer your day with confidence and smiles! What better way to go through your day than by wearing something you look and feel great in?!
