I’m always trying to trend forecast for the upcoming season, just so that I can plan for the blog and for my own wardrobe. I usually look to the past years trends to weed through what will stay and what I will pass on. But last spring was anything but ordinary, in fact we are coming up on a year that we first had lock downs and stay at home orders. Last spring was all about comfort — tie dye sets, leggings, sweatshirts. We abandoned denim and heels for a few months, and for me the heels still haven’t made a comeback. In fact, it’s made me look at what I truly like to wear and want to wear. So denim has made it’s way back in, I find comfort in denim and I like to keep them in rotation with my leggings. But somethings I definitely don’t want to throw out this year are dresses. I love spring dresses and I’m anticipating a big comeback this year. Maybe not full length sparklers, but easy going casual dresses that can be worn with flats, sandals or sneakers. (I mean of course heels, too but we still aren’t talking.)
I found this dress at Madewell and scooped her right up. It fits perfectly (I’m in the 8) and it’s the perfect length for spring — kinda short, but also just right. I wanted to pair it with sneakers because that’s where I’m at right now and of course I like to toss on an extra layer in the spring. This oversized denim jacket is perfect for the causal look.
