It has really started to feel like spring here in Pittsburgh, and I have had the itch to do some online shopping to bring my wardrobe up-to-date with the calendar. I am so ready to put away all my heavy sweaters and embrace the lighter, spring-like clothing options.
In my browsing, I came across this watercolor-print blue and white dress and I just couldn’t resist. I feel like my outfit preferences have changed a bit over the last year – more than ever, I’m embracing the looser, flowier things rather than anything remotely formfitting. I just value being comfortable all the time, no matter what!
This dress is so perfectly flowy and comfortable; it makes me so happy! I’m not always a “print” person, but this print reminds me of a watercolor print, and I love that. It’s springy, but not too pastel or Easter-dress-like. The blue is such a pretty shade, and the blue-and-white color combination just makes it seem so classic and classy. The pleats add the perfect about of texture and swing to the dress – I can’t twirl, but I know that if I could, this dress would be absolutely perfect for that! And the cute little ruffled neck with the tie just adds the best little detail.
I think it fits pretty true-to-size – I’m wearing the XXS, which is my normal size. It’s loose, but not baggy – I don’t feel like I’m lost in the dress, just that it’s comfortably flowy. The sleeves are “bracelet length” in the photos of the model (a little shorter than the wrist), but on me they reach all the way down. I think it looks cute both ways!
Typically, I wouldn’t go so matchy-matchy with an outfit, but I couldn’t resist this blue snakeskin mini purse and my favorite white flats. The blue of the bag is so neutral that it’s almost a gray – I know that it’ll work with so many other outfits, and it’s absolutely the perfect size for my wheelchair joystick. And if you’re looking for a great, super comfortable pair of flats, you cannot go wrong with these Sam Edelman ones. I own them in so many colors now and don’t regret it at all!
This is an outfit that would look equally appropriate for Easter or a weekend outdoor brunch. Fingers crossed that I can safely wear it out a few places these next few months!
