Spring Dress Series: Casual Dresses

It’s official, I’m a sucker for casual, comfy dresses that I can wear with a normal bra. I can’t help it, if it’s not comfy and I can’t wear a normal bra, it just sits in my closet. I’ve learned my lesson, and that’s why I like the dresses below. Plus, they look good on a majority of body types. 

I could wear this dress to a thousand different places- work, church, Easter, a shower, a luncheon, on vacation… everywhere! And if there were ever a sandal to splurge on, these are it. I bought my K. Jacques two years ago, and they look and feel even better than the day I purchased them. Oh, and I wear them all. the. time.

This outfit is just fun and happy! The dress is adorable and comes in 4 different colors! You could wear it to an outdoor BBQ as easily as you could wear it on Easter. Now that’s a versatile dress. Oh, and I found a steal version of the shoes and a splurge version of the dress! Can you believe the straw bag is $35?!?

This dress is elegant and fun all at the same time! This dress is a splurge, but to me, it’s  like a piece of art . You can wear it to a dressier occasion, but you could also wear it around the house. And at that price, you’d want to get your wear out of it -ha!  You could also wear the red fringe earrings from Monday’s post with this dress! Here’s a short splurge dress that I fell in love with while searching.

Styling tip: When ordering these dresses, it’s best to order the smallest possible size. You don’t want the dress to swallow you.

    Hi Carly.
    I love your style ! I was wondering if this is going to be your new blog layout. I love seeing pictures of you in the clothes I get a better feel for how they will look on me. I know that must be a ton of work but I was just wondering. Keep up the great work ! Happy spring

      Hi Joyce, Thanks for reading! I’m just mixing it up with the collages. I will still be showing pictures of me in the clothes. Collages work well for multiple complete looks.

    Carly ~ you have outdone yourself with these beautiful collages (the white dress plus this one.} They are not only helpful, but so beautiful and well designed. I LOVE the way you laid them both out ~ showing the items up-close AND the great little info section with merchant info and price. PERFECTION!

    As I mentioned to you a while ago, these collages help me “see” and shop. I will end up buying all the components and feel so great wearing the whole outfit. I do love seeing you wearing the clothes but adding this new feature really offers another fashion/styling {and shopping!} opportunity. I hope you keep doing both!!
