Outfit: Geo Lace Peplum Dress & Riley Fit coral shirt c/o Banana Republic | Similar ankle strap pumps | Michael Kors Hamilton handbag | Similar earrings | JCrew sunnies
I was beginning to think that Spring had jumped ship on us down here in Florida for awhile! We’re not used to the cold snaps lasting into March, but when I went home to PA for my bridal shower a couple of weeks ago, I got a rude awakening. Suddenly temps in the 50s and 60s didn’t seem so bad!
Well, it has finally consistently stayed in the 80s for the past week and with the season fully in tow, a few things are for sure–longer days (yes!) and spring DRESSES. Yes. I’ve been having an affair with spring dresses lately because they are so easy to wear to work and look fancy without a lot of effort needed.
This geo lace peplum dress has the recipe for success–lace + nipped waist + classic color + modest length= ultra feminine and chic. I’m not lying, I’ve had more compliments on this dress the 2 times I’ve worn it than literally any other spring or summer dress I’ve ever had. Just the other day Nate and I were out about town running errands and what not and I got 2 compliments on it in 20 minutes, so I told him “I’m getting the other colors!”.
For a fresh and preppy take on this classic silhouette, I decided to add a structured button down shirt to attain a more work-appropriate look. The students all said to me “Miss, you look different” (gotta love when they pick apart your look–be it good or bad! haha).
To play on the pink-coral color, I donned my pastel ankle strap pumps and sparkly crystal drop earrings. It doesn’t take much to style up this gorgeous dress!
Complete with a prep-school ready striped tote and tortoise sunnies, I was ready to go.
Are you guys loving spring dresses lately? I find myself fiending for more and I may just have to make a pit stop at Banana Republic this weekend in Orlando for the lilac version of this dress and maybe this gorgeous floral number too.
If you happen to pop by Banana Republic while out galavanting this weekend, share your finds with #itsbanana!
Happy Hump Day! Enjoy the rest of your week 🙂
