If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I love warm weather aka spring and summer seasons. So when my friend Melanee invited me to her wedding in Orvieto, Italy this spring, I happily started planning. But, as most of you know due to the current state of affairs, Italy is closed for travel and I find myself in an unprecedented situation in self quarantine due to the pandemic.
Despite the current state of affairs, I’m still busy daydreaming about all of the spring fashion we’re eventually about to see! And since you’ve requested some curated spring looks, I’ve partnered up with Lane Bryant to share some of my favorites for the brighter days ahead.
First up, this versatile eyelet off the shoulder white dress. If you are looking for a piece that will take to you brunch or the beach, this is your dress. Not to mention, it will perfectly transition you from spring to summer without skipping a beat. Don’t forget you can easily layer a denim jacket over it for cooler evenings.
Pair this look with a wide woven stretchy belt in a natural material color and some casual espadrille wedges (white is perfect for spring and summer!) for a pulled together look that is sure to get you compliments! Also, don’t forget some bright colored tassel earrings to finish your look. These also come in a blush color as well!
It just wouldn’t be spring without a floral fit and flare midi dress (act fast though because this one is selling out quick)! This blush and white color is practically screaming spring! For a more casual vibe you can toss a distressed denim jacket over it (a piece that should be a part of your wardrobe staples)!
And, don’t forget accessories for this look! I fell in love with these large framed sunglasses in white that add an extra pop. If you have a hard time finding sunglasses to fit your face like I do, the ones from Lane Bryant will be perfect for you!
To finish off your look, the white espadrilles are perfect for a more comfortable vibe or if you want to dress this look up, pair with my favs; the tall thin ankle strap heels in nude (another piece that should be a staple in your wardrobe)! These also happen to be really comfortable too, a win-win in my book.
Now more than ever, we need to have fun with our #OOTDs; think bright colors, and bold accessories. This floral ruffle hem midi dress caught my eye with it’s turquoise and red combination!
I knew I wanted to pair this vibrant dress with a perennial favorite of mine for spring and summer, the white denim jacket (also a must have in your capsule wardrobe)! Plus, this one is so stretchy and comfortable, you won’t want to take it off.
Now, let’s talk about how to accessorize this look! I am definitely loving the tassel earring trend for spring so I added neutral pop of color in blush. When it comes to the sunglasses for this ootd, I went a little more bold with these cool red frames! Lastly, you’ll notice I wore the white espadrilles again with this dress because they work so well with everything (they are comfortable too)!
It’s time we bring fun back to our wardrobes and brighten up our clothing as we brighten up our moods. I hope these items get you thinking about better days ahead and don’t forget it’s always fun to play dress up at home!
