LOFT Cyber Spring Event + Flora Dress


(Shop all of these pieces via the "My Sale Picks" widget below)

Hi, Everyone!

It's been awhile! As many of you know, I recently returned from a Spring Break family vacation, which was a perfect warm-weather getaway. The lush, tropical surroundings, the warm, crystal waters, and the soft, white sands were all slices of paradise! While away, it was important for me to really be in the moment and spend quality time with my hubby and the kiddos, so I restricted my social media activity to only my daily Instagram posts. We had such an amazing time, and I hope you enjoyed seeing several of the snaps I shared via my Insta-stories! Thank you for all your sweet comments while I was away! I read every single one and appreciated all of them, even if I wasn't immediately able to respond to all of them. Thanks for your patience during that time! For those of you who requested it, I plan on putting together a separate blog post with all my travel outfits/favorite resort wear pieces, which I hope will provide a little vacation-style inspiration. ;-)

MY SALE PICKS




Now, onto this outfit! How adorable is this Flora Dress? The print is absolutely darling with the intermixed stripes and diamond patterns, which consist of micro florals in varying shades of red and blue. They give it a slightly bohemian-romantic vibe, which I love. It's also really nice quality: fully-lined, zips up the back, airy and silky, and not wrinkle-prone. The silhouette is really lovely and flattering as well. It nips in at the waist and then gently flares out into a slight A-line. I'm also smitten with the flutter sleeves. So, so cute! 

This dress has become quite popular, and several sizes have already sold out, but as I always say, bookmark it online and keep checking back for pop-backs if your size is currently sold out. Sizes are often re-stocked, so keep your eyes peeled!

Update (4/25/17):
I'm so happy to report that this dress has been re-stocked online in all sizes! I'm sure it will sell out quickly again, so if you've been eyeing it, snag it while you can!





I'm styling this dress a couple of ways. It's darling on its own, of course, but for more visual interest and a dash of extra color, I added a long, mustard cardi that I simply tied at the waist. Tying the cardi instead of wearing it unbuttoned highlights the narrowest part of the waist and gives it a dressy-casual look. This is a look I'd wear on the weekends if grabbing lunch with friends or running some quick errands; it's easy and effortless yet still pretty. 



For the second look, I swapped out the cardi for a cropped jean jacket. Similar to the cardi, the jean jacket adds a nice textural element to the overall look, highlights the waist with its cropped fit, and also provides a light layer for those breezy, chilly Spring days. It also pairs well with strappy, nude sandals and a woven tote like I'm wearing here with both looks. Add a cute panama hat and a pair of sunnies, and you're set. I love simple outfits like this when I'm on the go!

Pieces that can be styled multiple ways will never fail you, and this dress is a perfect example of that. Its versatility and charm make it such a perfect Spring/Summer staple. Switch up the look easily with a casual-cute pair of neutral slides or lace-up flats, or polish it up with a tailored blazer and a sleek pair of pumps for a professional-chic look. I'm a huge proponent of re-styling and re-mixing your favorite wardrobe items to get the most use out of them, and this is easily achieved here with just a few simple changes.

I hope you like both stylings and that they will provide you with a few ideas on how to style this or a similar Spring dress already in your wardrobe. Adding small pops of color and texture can really be impactful and brighten up your whole look!
