Hello Dolls,

One of my favorite spring trends is the every wanderlust-y maxi dress like this green one from Sammy Dress . It’s so easy, flattering, and such a unique statement. However, I often feel that its such a statement, I am reluctant to wear it “too” often. Likewise, I love mixing and matching pieces that I’ve probably worn a million times. It’s all about styling for the occasion and making your maxi dress a whole new piece because the beauty of a maxi is the effortlessly transition from daytime to dinner!

Keep it classy with a cardi….

Just in time for Easter or you favorite springtime festivity, a soft, timeless cardigan is the perfect way to add an extra layer to any sundress. Try playing with fun patterns and colors like this adorable ladybug print from Mod Cloth or this exotic ikat from Kate Spade!

Drape with the jacket-of-the-moment…

Give an on-trend twist to the classic denim jacket by draping it over the shoulder or opting for one featuring a fun appliqué.
