I hope everyone had an amazing Easter weekend! This weekend I got a much-needed break with my amazing mamma and aunt with a fun trip to Boston! We spent a lot of time walking around the city and eating a lot of carbs (I will take anything that is not college food at this point). Spring was finally in the air for once and I was able to pull out my go to look for this point in the season. I am an incredibly light packer and try to keep it as simple as possible. So I pretty much wore the same thing two days in a row. And I will continue to wear this same look until summer decides to make an appearance.
The thing about Spring is there is still a little chill in the air or some breeze passing by and I am someone that gets cold very easily. So I solve this with my favorite denim jacket from Tommy Hilfiger that I’ve had for years. I also get this habit of bringing a jacket everywhere from my mother because the AC is always just way too high in restaurants, and then if you don’t bring a jacket you’re sitting there freezing for two hours (my biggest tip during these hot months is always have a light jacket or cardigan on hand just in case). I either just hang it over my shoulder tie or it around my waist when I am not actually wearing it, and know that I will always be set for whatever the weather or AC decide to do. A spring hat I also think is very important for an everyday look to protect you from the sun and just because it’s a cute accessory. My go to sun hat is a small straw-like one from Aritzia with a black ribbon bow that frames it. The tan color goes with everything and I always get compliments when I am wearing it. Hats are also a big game-changer on those bad hair days!
Comfortable shoes are also a must especially when you’re walking around shopping or decide to skip the Uber while going to brunch. I usually opt for some sort of sneaker that way I know my feet will stay intact for the whole day and I won’t regret my decision later.
Finally, the main star of it all: the midi dress. I wear these things all the time and it was the only thing I changed about my outfit this weekend while keeping the hat, the sneakers, and the jacket all the same. As someone who is below 5′ 5” maxi dresses were not made for me. As my mom likes to say: Why are you going to wear that, to sweep the street? Dresses are the easiest thing to throw on when it’s hot outside because their flowy and light and you don’t have to waste time trying to plan an outfit when you are trying to rush out the door. I am not a fan of short dresses though because I find that they don’t allow you to move however you want throughout the day so I typically avoid them. When I am running around and trying to figure out a million things the last thing I want to think about is if I am currently flashing everyone. So I found my happy medium . . . midi or tea length dresses! They hit my right around the shin and are so easy to just throw on and off. I can move however I need to and don’t have to worry about tripping because my dress is too long or that I am currently cleaning the street. To all my short girls out there this dress is your best friend during the spring (and even summer). That way you can be on trend with everyone else wearing maxi dresses but still be comfortable. I wore two this weekend one from Loft and the other from Anthropolgie. It is so easy to find these type of dresses pretty much wherever you shop and they will never go out of style.
So what is your go to spring look for this season?
