This time of year my mind starts to wander to spring dresses. After the brutal cold of winter, I’m always looking forward to the warmth and greenery of spring. (Especially after daylight savings!) I’m not much for prints other than stripes- but I love some springy florals in March, April, and May. This dress seems really girlie to me with the pink and purple pastels and the ruffled neck- so I opted for more relaxed accessories. These boots are Stuart Weitzman’s, but there is an exact (no really, EXACT) knock-off at DSW. The sunglasses are a wayfarer-esque version from Target and I can’t get enough of them. Additionally, they’re super inexpensive so they are my go-to when I’m out mom’ing. I just really happened to love how they paired with this dress and boots.
If you see me on a daily basis I usually have one of three necklaces on- either of the two I have on in this picture, or my long “AJD” bar. I don’t know why having a necklace with my son’s initials on it is so precious to me, but I ADORE it. I have it on 75% of the time and rotate the other two in for the last $24. The only time I don’t have them on is the 1% that I have a gigantic statement necklace on for some sort of occasion. No really, they’re always on. I love them so.

Dress: Kate Spade similar, similar (rent EXACT SAME dress for $30)
Shoes: Stuart Weitzman (DSW version here) | Necklaces c/o: Emma Jane Designs | Sunglasses: Target
Earrings: J. Crew | Lipstick: Fig
The earrings are J. Crew Mercantile and were on sale (because we all know I hate paying full price for clothes) buuut they sold out, so here are the ones from J. Crew. I know this look is a bit girlie for me, but I like to mix it up. This dress is a definite contender for Easter Sunday, although knowing me, I will wear something a bit less fussy to chase Alexander around searching for eggs. Because I am a realist, internet.
May you have a wonderful Monday and may you have all of the caffeine in your possession because #SpringForward is HARD on life. And by life, I mean sleep schedule. And by hard, I mean “I get cranky and my poor family has to deal with it.”
