Sweet spring! Chilly mornings in Dallas are giving way to warm days that make me want to shed layers and sprawl in sunshine all day…the shift into the new season is making it really hard to want to do work. Weekends like this past one had me outside as much as possible and it was a huge thrill to wear my first (!) spring-time dress out and about. Since I’m feeling a little insecure about showing skin without a hint of a tan (need to apply my sunless tanner stat), this maxi dress was perfect for taking advantage of the weather while still staying covered up a bit. So soft and comfortable, I like how the dress has some sass with the slits on both sides and that little white fish look like abstract dots until you get up close. Sometimes I forget how easy it is to throw on a dress—there’s no worry in matching a top to a bottom and all you need is a jacket (denim is a never fail, perfect option) or cardigan to make a transitional look. If you haven’t found a flattering springy sun dress yet I’d recommend taking a look at Abercrombie—tons of great styles to choose from and lots of textures, prints and patterns available. I’ve personally got my eye on some of the little white dresses…
