Spring Fashion

Posted by Tara


Spring is definitely here in Arizona. It's not official but it sure feels like it! I recently had the opportunity to attend an outdoor brunch and was asked to wear a "Spring Dress" when I attended. I knew I could count on DownEast Basics for something bright and pretty. I went to their store and I was overwhelmed with so many beautiful spring skirts and dresses! There were way too many options! (LOVE having too many options in a store.) 


I ended up choosing this dress, called the Sidewalk Sunday Dress. I loved the wide stripes and I wanted a pop of color and the coral gives me just that! It comes in a darling navy and white stripe as well.


Since the event I attended was a casual one, I decided to go with flats and a simple necklace. I had bought a navy blue statement necklace to go with this dress, but this bow one paired perfectly with it also!


I am loving tea length dresses this season. This dress is cut perfectly for attending church or going to an event in. Love the versatility. 



What I wore: 
Dress: DownEast Basics
Gold Flats: Target (Similar)
Necklace: Forever 21 (Similar)

I love me a good bold stripe! Especially in a dress. I love that store so much! Their prices could be a little better but still they're not Too bad. They always have so many feminine and fun dresses and skirts! Now I want to go. Good choice on this dress I love it, and especially the color!

Super pretty! Love the stripes and the color. Unfortunately, I'm fairly short so I don't think I could pull of that length.

I'm not tall at all, I am only 5'3 and I wasn't sure about the tea length dresses and skirts, but I LOVE how it looks! Thanks for stopping by Stephanie!

Lovely dress. I adore stripes. I actually have a very similar dress, skater style, but shorter. x

I was just in CA last week, and the weather was amazing! As a fashion blogger I always want to show outfits that other cities would like besides AZ. I just can't wear my winter outfits anymore, its getting way to warm here! Glad you can relate! Thanks for stopping by Kelly!

Cute dress! Unfortunately tea length doesn't work on a shortie like me!

Did you know you have captcha turned on? It makes it a bit of a pain to comment but it is easy to turn it off:
