Floaty Floaty Pretty Layers

Lately, I’ve been wearing a lot of dresses. They’re easy to throw on, comfortable, and, in general, tend to look as if you’ve “tried” harder than, say, a tank top and some yoga pants. This weekend I received an email from  Free People highlighting some of their lovely summer dresses, and you know what? I need more dresses.

 Being a chubby girl, I have been conditioned to not consider mid-drift baring options, but this lovely blue number is so cute I say “damn societal expectations!” The sweet little side buttons make it even more perfect. 
THIS DRESS! So bright, so patterned, so floaty! And a wonderful reason to invest in a pair of gold sandals

Uh oh, more buttons! Plus, being black, you don’t have to worry about sweat showing.
It’s so hard being fiscally responsible, when there are so many gorgeous options. What is your favorite warm weather clothing item?

Feeling Breezy

One of the saddest things about living in Florida is how short spring is. We get maybe 4-5 weeks between Winter and Summer. All over social media people are posting beautiful fields of spring blossoms and boasting about busting out their open toed shoes, and we hit hot and muggy weeks ago. Fortunately, fashion is finally catching up with the weather, and I am loving the loose, breezy sundresses popping up everywhere. Usually I like garments with a bit more structure, but these dresses seem ideal for keeping cool while running around.

That lilac one in particular is really speaking to me; I already have the perfect pair of silver sandals to wear with it, and it seems a shame to let a perfectly good outfit idea go to waste. What items are you looking at adding to your spring wardrobe?
