One of my favorite pieces for spring is a feminine white dress. Throwing on a dress doesn’t require a lot of extra thought in creating an outfit, so it’s always a good back up option for crunch time when you swear you can’t find anything to wear. 😉 They can be dressed up with heels for a polished look or dressed down with gladiator sandals for something more relaxed so they work for almost any occasion.

Since a dress is a spring staple, there are so many different styles available. I am obsessed with  this flirty style that embraces the off-the-shoulder neckline and the back of this dress. Also loving the most beautiful crochet detailing on this dress. However you style your white dress, it is sure to be your go-to this season.

Below are nine more spring dresses I’m loving. This one and this one are by far my favorite.

OFF THE SHOULDER:
White Strapless off the Shoulder Crochet Trim Dress

Last year I was doing a series on fun activities to do each season. With spring in full swing I wanted to share a few things to add to your May to-do list to make the most of the beautiful weather:

  • Flower power: Spring flowers are a sight to be reckoned with, especially when in high numbers. Check out a flower festival in your area. If you live in Utah the tulip festival is gorgeous and Temple Square has amazing florals as well. If a festival it’s an option in your area, explore downtown or other neighborhood to get your fill of spring flowers while they are in full bloom.
  • Free your toes:  Pick out a new pair of open-toe sandals. My favorite buy so far have been these ones. You can see more of my favorite Spring sandals here.
  • Dine outdoors: Pick a restaurant based purely on its outside seating options. A great view and some fresh air makes any dish taste better.
  • Fly kites: Does anyone ever outgrow kite-flying? We’ve had some crazy wind storm this Spring which makes perfect kite flying weather. Whether as a fun date or a family activity, grab a fun, colorful kite (you can get some for a $1) and give it a try.
  • Wet paint: Update your nails with a fresh, pastel color perfect for spring. Love this shade of pink (color – fruit machine).
  • Show some shoulder: Switch up your typical tops for a unique neckline by giving an off-the-shoulder style (top or dress) a shot. It’s a fresh and feminine look perfect for spring. I have this one and this one in blue and always get compliments when I wear them.
  • Feed the birds: Round up some friends or some little ones to get crafty and build some bird feeders (love how this one turned out!). After all, nothing says spring like the sound of birds chirping.
  • Spoil your mother: Don’t forget to show some love to the woman who has given you everything! Here’s a perfect gift that was made for her, literally.

DATES TO REMEMBER:
MAY 5th: Cinco de Mayo – pass the chips and guac!
MAY 6th: National Teacher’s Day
MAY 10th: Mother’s Day
May 25th: Memorial Day

white high low blouse

DETAILS: WHITE SLEEVELESS TOP (WEARING SIZE XS) ||  TEAL BLAZER (WEARING SIZE 2) || DISTRESSED CUT-OFFS (WEARING SIZE 24 – RUN BIG SIZE DOWN) || MULES (RUN SMALL – ORDER HALF SIZE UP) || AVIATORS || SILVER WATCH || HANDBAG (CELINE – SIMILAR HERE)

A classic white shirt is one of the most universal pieces in your closet. It’s an item you can just as easily tuck into a pencil skirt for the office or dress down for a night out with friends or family. The sleeveless blouse is one of my favorites for spring and summer since if feels so light and airy. It also makes for a perfect layering piece. Love the high-low style of this one. The material isn’t stiff like most dress shirts, so it doesn’t wrinkle and it’s super comfortable. You can never go wrong with white, but try pairing it with another color to brighten up the look even further. Mint is one of my favorites because the color is flattering on everyone. 🙂

What are some of your favorite white shirt combos?

XOX,
Christine
