Favorite Spring Dresses and Straw Bags (Trendy Wednesday #161)

| | |

With each new season, we want to update our wardrobe a bit and add a few dresses.  For Spring, flowy dresses with colorful designs are on the wish list!  Whether you wear dresses to work, to your job or to church, this Spring I’ve seen several dresses that have caught my eye!

Last week I went shopping for an Easter dress here in town.  Because I’ve been working so much, I didn’t have a lot of time to search for an Easter dress online.  I live in a small town so local shopping is limited.  We don’t have a Nordstrom, Loft, Madewell or J Crew, which are a few of my favorite stores to shop.  We do have an Old Navy, but I wanted a dress a bit more dressy.  While my daughter and I were at the local mall, I found a dress at Belk.  Their Crown & Ivy line reminds me of bit of Lilly Pulitzer or Kate Spade clothes!

Anytime I shop for dresses, I like to make sure I can wear it different ways, getting the most wear for my money.  In this blog post from last week I shared how to wear an Easter dress several ways with your capsule wardrobe.  When I was looking for an Easter dress, I wanted to find one in the same color scheme as my Spring capsule wardrobe, which has navy as the base color.  I found this Crown & Ivy dress (different pattern) and wore it to church on Sunday.  I can also wear the dress later with my denim jacket, my navy cardigan and my blush cardigan.

Let’s talk Straw Bags for a bit!  They are popular this Spring and are trending on Instagram.  I bought my Clare V. Round Straw Bag (similar) last year and love carrying it.  It also comes in a petite size in a Blush color and a Black color as well.  A straw bag really brightens your outfit and the neutral color will coordinate with any shoe color!  This round tote/shoulder bag is beautiful and is under $50!  This pompom embellished round straw tote is popular among bloggers.  For a dressy straw bag option, this raffia clutch with fringe will be a perfect accessory for your Spring and Summer outfits!

  1. I think your Easter dress is lovely, especially paired with that straw bag and nice sandals! and I’m with you on a dress that can be worn several ways. I wore a dress I found on clearance and styled it 3 ways and I think I have another idea forming. Thanks so much for hosting and providing heresy content!

  2. Thank you Chrissy! That’s great that you found a dress on clearance and getting to wear it many ways!

  3. Pam, I love my straw bag. I’ve seen several from fellow bloggers that are gorgeous and are definitely trending this season!
