This is probably my favorite time of year. Even in California where we have year-round warm weather, everything just feels fresh and fun. It’s the perfect time to clean out your closet and add a few new spring-inspired dresses. There are so many colorful options available around Easter that it’s hard to pick just one, so I’ve pulled together five of my must-haves. One of my absolute favorites, though, is this yellow number.
First, the color yellow just screams spring and perfect for a wedding. If you’re debating between another color and yellow, I’d definitely go the colorful route this time around. Another color that’s super trendy right now is lavender, so that’s a great choice as well. Back to the yellow dress, though. Not only is the color spot on, the floral design and ruffled sleeves are the perfect details. Can you ever really go wrong with florals and ruffles for spring? I don’t think so.

You can spice up your dress even more, no matter the style or color, with some eye-catching accessories like this fun, round straw bag (another HUGE trend) and some cute pumps or espadrilles wedges. Now you’re set with an amazing wedding look and dresses that will take you all the way through spring and into summer!

How was your Christmas? Reid and I enjoyed our slowest and sweetest Christmas yet. We were surrounded by my lovely in-laws and lots of LEGO’s. I would be lying if I said I haven’t stepped on them. But speaking of stepping, these boots are my fave and one of my wardrobe staples, and this dress is quickly a favorite for its flattering fit, tulip hem and under $60 price!

I’ve also included some of my favorites from around the web below:

NYE is fast approaching and this dress is the perfect way to kick it off! I love the one shoulder and ombré sequins but I really love the one shoulder. I bought this in small and I usually have zipper issues, but this zipped up without a glitch. These Tamara Mellon red heels are the perfect punch of color to kick off NYE and can’t wait to pair them with jeans. Even if I don’t end up ringing in 2018 at a party, it’s date night ready. What are you wearing?


Other New Years options:

sweater dress // tee // beret // boots // bag

I love gray boots so I included more below, including mine, the ‘thighland”

The coziest sweater actually exists and comes in 2 colors. Who knew? Also, if Reid and I are at all successful this weekend, we will have tried out at least one brunch or coffee shop we haven’t yet tried. I’m weaning myself off coffee actually, so I’ll be ordering the complicated matcha drinks that appear dinosaur green and using honey. I’ve given up agave as well. While I may have given up the drink I’m drinking here in the picture, I’ve actually had tons more energy drinking lots of H20, 3 glasses before 12 noon and so on. To those asking about my boots, these are from Stuart Weitzman, I love them! Here are similar around $220. I hope your weekend includes lots of coffee shop hangs and cute brunch spots with the ones you love, sacrifice and would do anything for. See here for some of my favorite LA coffee shops.

Happy weekend!

An easy solution for a tall girl is wearing a dress as a tunic. I paired this ruffle dress from Chrissy Teigen’s collab with Revolve with my favorite wide leg pants. While you may second guess the whole idea of a dress over pants, it totally works with sock boots and a floral bag. Perfect for date night which included dining room chair shopping and getting dinner in Highland Park. What do you think of dresses over pants?

I love a versatile sweater like a good mocha. Here I styled it as a tunic but it can also be worn as a dress. As a note, I would size up as this runs small. If I wore this as a dress, I’d size up, to avoid it being too short. With my 5′ 9″ height, I usually have to size up. however, as a tunic, I love the cozy feel (it’s crazy soft) and extra material. This camel color also compliments scarves, a black trench and faux leather leggings underneath. Cozy is the name of the game. I’m so ready for fall and this week has felt like it believe it or not! I’m not really into pumpkin spice lattes (PSL’s), so the kids and I have been drinking more tea and adding a cardigan in the mornings and evenings. Definitely a welcome change. It’s your turn, what’s your favorite thing about fall?

Do you know when you find a dress that’s a keeper and you can’t stop wearing it? Well, I think I found it. I posted a selfie wearing it with these heels, a bootie, and today I wore it to church. It flows beautifully (meaning you can dance in it) and has a longer cut in back so no worries when bending down with the kids. For chilly evenings catching sushi with friends, add this suede jacket. Happy Sunday!

I’m loving crochet lately from tanks to tops to dresses and this one is no exception. I’m really thankful for slow date nights catching up over a quiet dinner. Even though we’re too tired to talk some nights, I’m grateful for the time to get away! See some of my favorite dresses below for hot summer nights.

I only like a dress if its super soft and terribly versatile. This one fits the bill and perfect for a long weekend and every longer naps. We are planning to don sweaters and lug blankets to Newport Beach for a family picnic. Hello 60 degrees! If you’re wondering, yes, I wore this dress with Birkenstocks. See more under $100 dresses here and here. What are your plans?

This weekend we are off to Santa Monica, and if the kids have anything to do with it, we will stop by the beach. I’m keeping it simple with a cotton dress, sneakers (or cute sandals in blush velvet) and my trusty hat. I’ love that this dress is under $50 so the inevitable spills don’t stress me out. Back to breakfast with my crew, shop more dress finds below. I hope you have a lovely weekend!
