Hi babes and happy Monday! How was your weekend? On Friday we went to a friend’s surprise 30th birthday and then I paid for it on Saturday with a terrible hangover! Ugh I honestly cannot hang like I used to. But once my headache subsided, I enjoyed a relaxing couch day with my pups and a Chicago PD marathon! Then Sunday afternoon, Tony and I went to the Cirque du Soleil CRYSTAL show and it was amazing! I’ve never seen a Circque show and it was such a neat experience. We ended our date day with sushi and then caught up on our shows – so all in all, it was a great weekend! I’m feeling refreshed and ready to kick butt this week. It’s supposed to be mid-60’s all week, and that Spring sunshine always helps to keep me motivated and on-track with my to do list!
And with this Spring weather, I can finally wear the cute dresses I’ve been stock piling for the last couple months! Springtime in the midwest can be very unpredictable; it could be sunny and 70 in March and 40 with crazy winds in late April – so even though I’ve been shopping for Spring, I still haven’t been able to pack away my cold weather essentials just yet! Which has been such a bummer because Spring and Summer are my style spirit seasons! It’s no secret that bright colors and fun prints make my heart so happy!
So naturally this dress fits right on in with the rest of the closet gang! I adore the floral print and this orangey-red color makes you look tan and is such a fun pop of color! I opted to layer a white tee underneath for some arm and chest coverage – I’m on the bustier side of life, and I’m not loving my arms at the moment, so a tee was the perfect solution for me personally! Though this dress is SO CUTE without a shirt underneath, and once I reach some personal fitness goals in a couple months, I’ll definitely rock this sans shirt!
The cinched waist makes this dress very flattering and comfortable and the adjustable straps give you flexibility in fit, which is super important, as everyone’s body and fit preferences are unique and different! This dress will be perfect with espadrille wedges or white sandals this Summer, but because I was in desperate need of a pedicure and my self tanner mishap also occurred on my feet, white booties were a must for this day of shooting haha. I think it also shows how versatile this dress is!
If you were going to an outdoor festival or concert, tan flat boots or peep-to booties would look darling with this dress. And if you are wanting to dress it up for a bridal or baby shower, white pumps or tan heel sandals would be great, as well! AND if you’re going to an outdoor BBQ or backyard event, white tennis shoes and a ball cap would be a great way to style this dress down for a more casual vibe.
For just $36 + 10% off with code SABBYSTYLE, this dress is a definite Spring and Summer must-have!
Wearing size Medium for reference!
