The Happiest Dresses For (Truly!) Any Occasion
The sunnier the better.
I love this time of year (except the pollen I could do without!) as everything is just magic. The longer days, the sunshine, the cool breeze—it really is the Florida sweet spot when we still have good hair days before the humidity sets in!
Over the holidays, I spotted this bow dress in pink/red and thought, yes please! But it wasn’t until I saw it in this pretty yellow/white combo that I couldn’t help myself from ordering it. I was looking for a dress for a really special shoot (I’ll share more in a few months, but here’s a peek!) in Palm Beach and this dress checked all the boxes. Fun, flirty, a bit different, but still classic in a quirky way. I loved everything about it! Plus the sunny yellow really sold me—it’s happiness in a dress.
Truly, it has been so much fun to wear! I was even stopped in Palm Beach a handful of times from women wanting all the dress details so they could *purchase immediately* for upcoming events and honestly, nothing makes me happier! I kept saying, “It’s so fun, and it comes in four color ways!”
If I had a wedding to attend this season, I’d absolutely be ordering the black/terracotta version. I think it would be stunning with these earrings (obsessed), this bag, and these heels (you can dance the night way in them, I LOVE mine!).
*Note: I wore this a few weeks ago at 29 weeks, so I ordered up a few sizes and it fit like a glove, no tailoring needed. But because it is more fitted around the waist, I did go up three sizes, especially since the reviews mentioned it ran a bit snug!
Obviously, I need little convincing to get all dolled up, and I do love a good excuse for a big bow! So if you’re shopping for the perfect outfit for a baby shower, garden party, gala, wedding, or just a fun night out on the town with your girlfriends, hopefully this will help you find the perfect thing to wear!
A Few Favorites From The List
I rounded up 38 spring dresses below, and I should have stopped at like 15, but there are SO many great ones out right now! From this perfectly sweet one that comes in all the colors to this fun satin yellow number that reminds me of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (Hi, Andie Anderson!) to this dress from Tuckernuck that I can’t stop drooling over. Also, this dress is a total *show stopper*. Basically, I need an invite to a gala ASAP. I can’t get over it. Oh, and don’t even get me started with this one…so good!
P.S. Don’t forget about this Target one!
