Daisies & Lace

Nothing says spring quite like daisies and lace. I just adore this sweet little daisy tank top (that happens to be $16), and it pairs so perfectly with my white lace midi skirt. I actually found this top in the Junior’s department, which I don’t tend to shop in frequently as a 33 year old. But hey, when you find something you like it shouldn’t matter! Don’t let your age define where you shop. If you are in your 30’s and 40’s, you can still find some great things in the Junior’s department, just like teens can still find some great things in the Women’s department. Wear what makes you feel good!

Mixing textures is similar to mixing prints, and it can be so much fun to play around with! I love how the white petals of the daisies play off the intricate pattern of the lace. The little tie in the front adds a playful touch, and can be tied up a little higher if you want more of a crop top look. I would also wear this top with these cropped linen pants, or this yellow midi skirt.

How perfect are these blue block heel sandals with this outfit? It’s nearly the exact shade of blue as the tank top, and if you’ve been following the blog for a while I am sure you are aware of the intense love I have for this shoe. I have them in blue, black, and tan. They are seriously the best, most comfortable shoes I own. Some colors and sizes are sold out, so definitely go swoop up what you can before they are all gone!

6 Little White Dresses Under $60

My obsession with midi dresses continues, and this white a-line beauty is the perfect little white dress! I couldn’t resist the criss-cross neckline, and the cute tie around the waist absolutely sealed the deal. Just like the “LBD”, the “LWD” is also a staple in every woman’s closet, especially for spring and summer. I love wearing white dresses because you can really have fun with styling and incorporating your own personality by adding a pop of color, pairing it with neutrals (like I did here), or adding a fun printed cardigan. The possibilities are endless! It’s like a blank canvas ready for you to create your own unique art. And yes, style IS art!

I have rounded up my 6 favorite little white dresses for you to shop, and they are ALL under $60! I just love how fun and flirty this tiered mini dress is, and I may get this ruffle wrap maxi dress for my upcoming vacation!

6 LITTLE WHITE DRESSES UNDER $60:

 

Floral Tiered Skirt

Light blue has been one of my go-to colors this spring, as I am sure you’ve noticed. I just love the softness of pastels, especially in floral prints. This floral tiered skirt won me over with its lovely pattern and contrasting striped tie belt. I talked a bit about mixing prints on the blog several weeks ago, and this is yet another way you can ease into this trend if you are hesitant. This simple little tie belt makes a statement and adds some spunk to this sweet ensemble. Wouldn’t this be absolutely perfect for a tea party? I just want to wear it while sipping tea in an English garden all afternoon. A girl can dream, right?

If you decide to purchase this skirt, I would recommend going up a size. I feel that it runs a bit small in the waist, as I often notice with other high-waisted skirts. I am usually a size 4, but probably should have went with a size 6 for a little more breathing room.

I found a few other tiered skirts that I think you would love as well, like this tiered ruffle midi skirt (also light blue), and this pleated palm print midi skirt which would be so perfect to take on a tropical vacation this summer (and under $45 – score!).

Striped One-Shoulder Midi Dress

Happy almost Friday, friends! I just cannot get enough of this adorable striped one-shoulder midi dress, and I wanted to share it with you all asap before it sells out. It’s no secret that I love pastels, so when I saw this dress for $60 I knew it needed to be in my closet! I love the classic silhouette of an a-line dress, and the one-shoulder ruffle detail adds the prettiest feminine touch. This would be so cute to wear to an outdoor garden wedding this summer, or to a fancy brunch with the girls! I recently wore it to an event with Lipault Paris, and it was so perfect for an evening of dinner and drinks. I may or may not have done a few twirls in it as I headed out the door.

I paired this dress with very simple, very classic accessories. My pearl bracelet and earrings were an anniversary gift from my husband about 12 years ago (insert wide-eye emoji here), but I found some equally elegant options for you to shop if you want a similar look, like this pearl bracelet and these pearl earrings. It looks like my Elaine Turner clutch is sold out, but this pretty blush clutch is just as cute and under $30.

Embroidered Overall Dress

Who else feels like we are back in the 90’s with this overall trend? I am not complaining one bit! I remember loving my overalls back in junior high, and I am pretty sure I had every type – the full length overalls, shorts overalls, and overall dresses. The overall dress I’m wearing here is under $30 and has the cutest floral embroidery near both pockets and on the back. It is a little on the short side, so you may want to go up a size or adjust it to be a little longer. While this is a cute as a dress, I think it would also be adorable to wear over a swimsuit on a trip to the lake. I am also loving this one that’s under $25, and this one that’s under $28!

I recently found these ahh-mazing bow slide sandals for under $25, and I honestly never want to take them off! You know I can’t pass up anything with a cute bow on it. They look so similar to these Sam Edelman slides that are $90. I’m definitely going back for the black ones, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the other colors get restocked! I just love finding designer dupes (especially with shoes), and these can be worn with so many different spring and summer outfits.
