Spring Fling // The Tiered Maxi Dress

Spring Fling // The Tiered Maxi Dress

Spring is the perfect time to wear your favorite dresses, even on your more casual weekend days!  I love how easy it is to throw on a maxi dress and feel ready to take on the world while feeling super comfortable for just about anything, especially as a Mom! Being petite can make it a challenge for me to find the perfect maxi dress without looking “lost” in all the fabric. Enter the tiered maxi dress! Wearing a tiered maxi gives dimension to your look and definition at your waist that you may not otherwise get with a straight long maxi dress.

I personally love how fun and girly this dress feels. It goes from spring into summer easily, so on a cooler day, I could simply wear a cardigan over it. And because ruffles and a windy day make for a fun photo shoot, I thought I’d add a little joy with my new favorite phone case! I love that it keeps me hands free and is a wallet as well for my most important cards.

These wedges are one of the most comfortable pair of shoes I’ve ever owned, and they come in so many colors! As a girl who loves wearing heels, wedges are perfect way to get the height I want and the comfort I need.

Back at It // Printed Spring Style for Work

Back at It // Printed Spring Style for Work

It’s the weekend (whew!). This past month has been a bit of a struggle for me. I can’t tell if the stars aren’t aligned as usual or I’m just in a funk, but I know I’m doing my best to get back to my best self. How has your month been? Hopefully great! One of the best ways I step out of any funk is to enjoy the good weather days as they come and embrace the change in the seasons with my style. If there is one thing I have learned well, it is that when things in life feel too big or overwhelming, making time to organize some thing as simple as your closet can go a long way (in comes spring cleaning!). Styling an outfit and getting dressed is my way of facing the day when it all seems uphill. Taking a moment to go through those favorite wardrobe pieces and restyling them a new way for a different season can very well give you just the motivational boost you need for the week!

I love a white blazer for spring (And, yes -white before Memorial Day is absolutely acceptable! I follow the rule that there are no rules in fashion! Wear what you love and makes you feel great.). It makes for the perfect canvas to add a great printed piece, like this Maggy London dress. I happen to love the sleek look of pairing prints with white because it draws the attention to the print itself.

What makes this print stand out are the subtle touches of blue and black that give you a range of colors to pair with the dress, making it versatile for your style at work or an evening out after work. I liked keeping the palette smile with black and silver, the perfect spring style for work. I don’t always wear print because it can be a challenge for me to find the right harmonious color to wear it with, but you can always count of a great white or black piece to carry you through those wardrobe conundrums.

Sunday Favorites // Metallic Shoes & Wide Leg Jeans

Happy Sunday! If there is one neutral I am drawn to most, it is gold! It’s pretty obvious, I know. But more than a color (can we call it that?) that makes me always think of my daughter’s room, it’s also a classic base for any style you put together that gives you a little “wow” factor on your most causal days. The metallic shoe trend is ever so alive. But aside from trending these days, it’s safe to say there will always be a great metallic shoe you can wear from your causal days to the fanciest of events.

Metallic Shoes

Remember these silver oxfords from a while back (or these from 2 years ago!)? I wore them out for almost an entire season until I found the perfect gold pair in these flatforms. They give me height so that I can wear them out to run around shopping and still have some edge to my look on my more casual days. In other words, I feel dressed up when I really may not be. Ha!

Metallic flat shoes

I happen to also be loving floral print right now! It’s all over Instagram, but I have to say it wasn’t originally a print I was drawn to. It can a challenge to make floral print look grown up, but with little hints here and there in a key piece, you can pull it off! See my last post sharing this beautiful Gucci bag with a dressier look in a floral denim Kate Spade dress

Metallic Shoes

While I sometimes feel that I am too petite to pull off a pair of wide leg jeans, I love that these cropped Levi’s hit right at the ankle. With only a little fringe at the bottom, the jeans feel fresh, casual, and super comfortable. I’ll wear a great pair of skinny jeans any day, but having loose-fitting jeans in your closet is a must!

Okay, so first things first – it’s been awhile, again! Best explained – my site and my life went under a bit of a hacking. Still learning the world of backend computing, I lost access to a few important files to get back to posting. As for my life, the early months of the year were consumed by my dedication to directing a musical. This year (my 12th!), I directed Next to Normal, and if you don’t know the story well, let’s just say that it is an intense story about family, love and loss. I wanted to honor it well, and so I dove right in and didn’t look up until it was finished this past weekend.

Now over both overwhelming experiences, I’m making my spring return (while outside my window an ice storm is reminding us winter is not quite over) and celebrating year two of This Season’s Gold! I have been sharing on my social sites in the meantime (follow along on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter), and thrilled to have recently partnered with Kate Spade to host a Spring Style Event on April 7th! If you are in the NJ/NYC area, check out the details and rsvp here.

If you haven’t noticed, flowers and denim have made their return in a big way together this season. Whether you’ve seen embroidered flowers on jeans, floral patches on denim jackets, or rose appliqué’s on pretty denim dresses like this one, flowers have returned for spring quite fashionably this season!

This denim dress (with pockets!) is perfect for the transitioning season. I love how structured it feels and that the dark denim makes the pink flowers pop with color. With a black and white striped inner collar detail, this dress makes for a perfect outfit for a stroll in Paris or a spring evening in New York along the water.

Adding my new favorite floral bag and low block heels, I am ready for spring! I couldn’t resist a few touches of gold from my belt to my bracelets. I was happy to add a little sparkle to celebrate This Season’s Gold second anniversary and all that is to come our way this year!
