Wednesday Want: Bookmaking Brunch Dress in Roses

Modcloth Brunch Dress in Roses

 

If there’s one thing I love about warmer weather, it’s the ability to wear a dress without worrying about if my legs, arms, or what have you will get cold. Seeing as how I am a dress person, not having to worry about something like that makes life just a bit easier.

As far as this new Modcloth dress, I am loving SO many things about you. The colors, the lovely print, the fact that it’s above the knee (huge plus for someone who is just barely over five feet tall), and also just the overall classic look of it.

With seeing such a huge quantity of cold shouldered dresses out there (too many in my opinion), it’s really refreshing to see more classically designed dresses still hitting the racks per se.

Happy hump day!

A modern take on dressing for Easter

A modern take on dressing for Easter

We all know the drill, Easter is here so time to put on some pastels and florals. After a while, though, that routine becomes just that–a routine.

I love the idea of modernizing an Easter outfit with pairing traditional pieces with quirky pieces that give the outfit some flair and edge.

A floral dress may seem stereotypical. Add a chunky navy necklace and gray heels and you’ll make that floral dress feel even fresher and younger. A black and white dress may seem inappropriate for some on Easter, but paired with a feminine blush necklace and ladylike ankle wrap heels you can wear it to brunch and church with the family. Blush dresses are amazing as they act as a neutral and can be paired with anything, but I’d pair it with the geometric white dress, the gray heels, and round sunglasses to make the look more modern than feminine.

Have a great Easter, y’all!
