Spring Dresses for all the Champagne Parties

Yellow is certainly on trend this spring/summer season and this feminine little number by Kate Spade NY is a nice reprieve from the winter blacks that I was wearing literally yesterday.  That being said, don’t expect to stop seeing black on my feed.  Actually, dark florals are also on trend this season.  I will share more on that later…

Easter is just a few days away (do you have a dress?), and weekends are sure to begin filling up with brunches, showers, and weddings.  Below are a few of my picks for all of the above.  Some less formal – maybe a Sunday jazz brunch at Watershed in Atlanta… and a few more formal styles, perfect for a spring wedding.  What I love about this dress (other than the color) is the signature Kate Spade bow.  It’s the little details that make it so special (and also look more expensive).  A simple dress with an interesting detail, like a strappy back, a ruffled shoulder, intricate boning, buttons, or just a interesting print really sets it apart from the others.


The nude pump, a quintessential spring shoe that is sure to style perfectly with 75% of the dresses in your closet.  The above is probably the third pair of this exact style that I have owed, and I have another open-toe version arriving today (link below).  I am super rough on my shoes.  I am constantly having the caps replaced on the stilettos, and scuff them like it’s my job.  It makes me so mad.  And so, I really never spend more than $100 on a pair of shoes, with the exception of a solid pair of boots, sure to last for years.  Until I hit the lottery (which is unlikely because I don’t play), you unfortunately won’t find any Jimmy Choo’s in my closet.  Only look-alikes that won’t make me throw up when I scratch them repeatedly on the pavement.  I’m pretty talented when it comes to finding sales on out-of-season shoes.  You have to use your imagination.  But a pink floral slingback in December.  It will cost you twice as much in March.

What are some of your favorite spring trends?  I’m scouting Revolve’s website now and have about 20 different dresses favorited for upcoming events (some linked below).

Happy Easter!
