Spring has finally sprung here in Maryland, so I’ve been slowly packing away the warm layers and letting my super pale skin see the sun.
I went through my April pictures and picked three of my favorite outfits to share with you. If you see something you like, I’ve made it easy for you to steal my style with links for each item when still available, or similar styles if they’re sold out. If you want to check out previous My Style posts, you can find them here.
Just for fun, here are ALL my April outfits with some booty-shaking music thrown in:
Look #1: Maxi Dress = Maxi Comfort
This dress was actually the very first maxi dress I ever owned (now I’m totally a baller and own two…) and I got it back when Stitch Fix was rocking my socks off. I see maxi dresses in fun patterns pretty much everywhere now, at all sorts of price points. This one is a bit pricey, but with the super cool pattern I would totally add it to my wish list and wait for a sale to hit: The Anthropologie Medallion Maxi Dress, currently $168. I also love this Lush racerback version over at Nordstrom Rack, and it’s only $32!
You’ve seen it before and you’ll see it again and again and again. What can I say, the J.Crew Factory Clare cardigan is a favorite and currently on sale for $29.50.
I haven’t really worn this dress very often because it just seems like SO much fabric and SO much print. However, I had the bright idea to throw on a belt with it this time and I really think that it makes a world of difference.
I love these stretchy belts because even though they cinch everything together, they still move with you so you don’t feel constricted throughout the day. I bought mine on super clearance at a Fossil outlet sale, but they have a similar belt at Target for $15.
I’ve been looking everywhere for more stretchy elastic belts, so if you see any please let me know!
Look #2: A Patterned Cardi + A Plain Dress
This floral printed cardigan is another item in my closet that just wasn’t getting a lot of wear. It is so easy to wear a printed dress or blouse with a solid cardigan, but for some reason a solid top and a printed cardi look a little odd to me. I decided to try pairing this one over a solid dress and belting it, and I really like how it all came together. My cardi is a brand literally called “cardigan” that I saw in person at a Nordstrom Rack a year or so ago. I found this really pretty yellow and gray version by Charter Club here and it’s currently on sale for $30. This Susina version for $25 is also really pretty.
I bought this dress for a steal last year at TJ Maxx and the cost-per-wear is probably down to about $1 by now! In fact, I just included it in February’s My Style post. The moral of the story is, if you find a brightly colored dress that fits great for a great price, just buy it and you will totally figure out ways to wear it! This Cynthia Rowley version at TJ Maxx for $30 is similar to mine, but I haven’t seen it in person so it might be quite short. Here’s another pink dress, but this one has half-sleeves and is made out of a more structured fabric.
Look #3: The Age AND Office Appropriate Dress
I’ve been curious about Boden for ages and finally just ordered a few items off their website so I could blog all about it. This dress was one of those dresses and as soon as I pulled it out of the package, I knew it would get a ton of wear. I’m going to do a full review as soon as one last item arrives, but in the meantime if you are looking for a super versatile and comfortable work dress, look no further than the Boden Floral Jacquard dress. Its on sale and there are still lots of sizes available!
