Hi there! 

I just got back from a beautiful resort vacation and it’s now Spring (ignoring our current snowstorm situation haha). Naturally every Spring I look forward to Spring dresses and this Free People dress for Nordstrom is gorgeous and right on trend.  It’s also on sale since I got it!

I’m currently loving the feminine silhouette of an off the shoulder dress and bell sleeves and this dress combines both. With the rouched fabric at the waist and sleeves it also gives a beautiful silhouette in the waistline, coming out with a billowy skirt. I frolicked around in Mexico in it and can’t wait to wear it this Spring into Summer!

Hi there! 

I thought I would continue the resort trend since it's that time of year and as it heats up we inevitably start to imagine ourselves at the beach, right? Maybe it's just me? Hehe. 

This Lilly Pulitzer tunic is perfect for throwing over your bathing suit or wearing with white pants and sandals to go out on the town. The pattern and color are resort-chic and lightweight for a sunny day and to pack for travel. I styled mine with Havaianas flip flops and a Vera Bradley madras beach tote as well as my Ray Ban sunglasses. 

Enjoy fun in the sun or plan for your next trip with a beautiful versatile tunic! Just don't forget your sunscreen:)
