Feeling Floral

IMG_3455IMG_3376

I don’t think I’ve ever been so ready for spring weather!! Okay, so maybe I say that every year but after ten days in NYC and coming home to equally cold temps this girl is seriously ready for some sunshine!! And boy did we get it this week!! The temps were so high that the mosquitos were actually out- who thought I’d ever be excited to see those pesky things? Along with the warm temps and bugs, comes the change in wardrobe!! I was over the moon to pull out my pastels, florals and sandals for these beautiful spring days we’ve been having and just in time for some amazing spring fashion events! This look was perfect to kick off Charleston Fashion Week season at the Maddison Row and Bella Bridesmaid fashion show at Cannon Green, Wednesday evening.

This dress is basically everything I want out of a spring go-to: flirty, fun, bright and FLORAL!! Floral is, of course, huge for spring, but this dress by JOA from StyleDwell freshens the recurring trend up with a graphic print. Add in the fact that it has pockets and retails for under $100 and I think you’ve got your number one Easter dress contender (plus, the cut is perfect for getting seconds at your Grandmother’s house on Easter Sunday). I also love that the dress ties in my number one color for spring, allowing me to wear my brand new shoes, light blue. This color is perfect in so many ways. It’s feminine without being girly and trendy without being tacky! I’ve been scooping up all the light blue in sight, so it was only natural that I had to order these badass kitten heels from Zara. I’m not normally a kitten heel kind of gal, but between the color and those adorable little studs, I figured I would give them a try! Plus, at $59 you really can’t say no to trying something new!

I kept everything else pretty simple with my go-to quilted Kate Spade bag and my new favorite Gorjana earrings from Rocksbox!! UM I literally have not taken them off since I got them in my first Rocksbox!! They will definitely not be getting returned! Did y’all know that you can get your first month of Rocksbox FREE using the code southernmeetschicxoxo?! It’s a pretty awesome little deal and clearly, they send you some pretty fab goodies!
