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.

Spring Dress Series: White Dresses

Dress season is here and so I’m dedicating this week to spring dresses! This is a 3 part dress series. Today, it’s all about the white dress! Next up will be “Casual Dresses” and “Dressy Dresses,” so stay posted!

Don’t let my new pretty collages fool you! These collages still have the same mix of high and low priced items that you’ve come to know and trust from C. Style! If there is one thing I miss most about helping clients, it’s coming up with the perfect outfit for them from head to toe. I realized this recently with my “Let’s Escape” resort wear post.  Then, so many of you told me how much you appreciated the outfits because you usually “shop the mannequin.” I knew this from my days with clients, but I had forgotten! Well, I enjoy helping women feel great and putting together outfits, so these collages are a win-win!

On that note, there are different ways you can approach these collages. You can use them to help you come up with an entire look (I’ve chosen these specific white dresses because they look good on a variety of body types), or you can use the collages as a way to bring together a complete look with a few pretty accessories. I’ve added additional styling information at the end of each collage. And the really great thing is that everything in these collages can be mixed and matched!

White Spring DressAlthough this dress says petite, I wouldn’t say it’s only for a shorter person. The hem hits me about an inch and a half above my knee (I’m 5′ 8″). I’ve linked to less expensive versions of the shoes and bag below. Click on pictures below.

White Spring DressI love this dress from J. Crew, especially if you like your arms to be covered! And boy, is this the perfect example of what a statement earring can do for an outfit?! I love that for only $38 dollars, you can buy an accessory that makes this whole outfit pop! Click on pictures below.

White Spring DressI was nervous about this dress being too short, but then I read that the model is 5′ 11.5″! When I know a dress may be on the shorter side, since the slip is shorter than the dress, I like to wear flats. These espadrilles are so unexpected and effortless, which makes the look so chic! Once again, the accessories really take this dress up a notch! Click on pictures below.

I hope you found this post helpful and useful! I know this time of year can be super busy with the fun activities that usually call for dresses, which is fun but can also be stressful if you don’t have the time or desire to shop.
