Spring is here! This means I am starting to think about vacations; both spring break and summer. It would be so nice to find a beach somewhere and sleep on it for a whole week! My kids schedules are wearing me out, I need a huge nap!

This maxi dress from OhConcept is perfect for my current mood. It has a vacation vibe, yet can easily be worn here in the San Francisco Bay Area at home. I wore this dress the other day to have lunch with my kids in downtown Saratoga, at the library, and to run errands. It was really comfortable, and made my day seem a little bit lighter since I felt like I was dressed for a beach getaway! Love that!

This dress by OhConcept is made from a lightweight jersey fabric and has a fun, open back. There is also a tie at the waist which adds a nice silhouette to the dress, as well as a fun little tassel on the side. Love it!

I cannot wait to plan a beach getaway and wear this dress non-stop while on vacation. It is the perfect vacation outfit idea for spring break or a summer getaway! This dress is also fabulous to wear right now, and well into the summer months, right here at home. It will be fun to wear casually with sandals or espadrilles, or pair with heels for a dressier look. Love this dress!

You can find this beautiful maxi dress by OhConcept online here, and you can find the entire OhConcept collection online at OhConcept.com. You will love their collection, they have so many fashionable, casual options which are perfect to wear right now! Love!

Floral maxi dress for spring

Spring is here! Yay! The spring season is my favorite time of year to wear maxi skirts, maxi dresses, and anything flowing! So when I spotted this flowing, red floral maxi dress for spring, I knew it had to be in my wardrobe!

I love this little dress. Not only was it under $100, it can be worn casually, or dressed up for a luncheon, a daytime wedding (as a guest of course), or worn to a graduation. It is the perfect floral maxi dress for spring!

If you are looking for a versatile floral  maxi dress for spring, this is a great option! If you decide to purchase this maxi dress, keep in mind the flutter sleeves are wide so you need a thin tank top or camisole underneath to keep things modest. The dress also runs on the smaller size, so if you are between sizes, go up. I usually wear a 6 or 8 depending upon the cut of a dress, so I went with the medium in this dress, and it fit perfectly.

Since platform shoes are making a resurgence, and maxi dresses tend to be on the long side for my 5’4″ frame, I knew I needed a pair of 1970s inspired platforms for the spring and summer seasons. When I saw these cool beige platforms by Seychelles I was thrilled! They work perfectly with my red floral maxi dress, and they look amazing with this season’s cropped jeans, cropped pants, wide leg pants, flares, and maxi skirts. Plus, they were under $120. How fabulous is that!

If you are looking for a comfortable pair of platforms which are easy to walk in, then this is the pair for you. There is a full size run in stock as of today online here; and they also come in a fun floral print. Since the price is right, I am thinking of adding the floral pair to my wardrobe. Love!

One of my favorite things to wear when the weather starts to warm up is a maxi skirt, or dress! Every spring season, I look for a fabulous maxi dress to add to my wardrobe. This fun, maxi wrap dress from Shabby Apple fit the bill for spring 2016!

With the 1970s trend in full swing for spring, this Shabby Apply maxi wrap dress fits into the trend perfectly. Wrap dresses are very ’70s, and this print has a vintage flair to it. I love how this geometric print fits in perfectly with the architectural/geometric trend we saw on the spring 2016 runways in New York. I feel so runway-ready in this dress!

Since the colors, and the pattern, stand on their own, I decided to go understated with my accessories. These Kendra Scott earrings, and matching necklace, from the spring 2016 collection have a geometric look, and blend in with the dress. They are great for wearing with this Shabby Apple maxi wrap dress, and for everyday wear!

This Shabby Apple maxi wrap dress was a little bit on the long side for my 5’4″ frame, so I instantly knew I would pair it with my favorite, old stand-by pair of Prada platform sandals. They are from the 2009 runway collection, and are a great investment pair of black shoes. I love how they work with the dress. For a cute pair of black platform sandals under $100, please click here.

I am looking forward to wearing my new Shabby Apple maxi wrap dress this spring; and also in the summer months! It is a great dress for daytime; and it can be dressed up, or down, depending upon which handbag, or shoes, are paired with it. I love versatility!

If you are ordering the Shabby Apply maxi wrap dress online, look at the sizing carefully. I normally wear a 6 or 8, so in this dress I got an 8. The 8 is a little bit big, I think a 6 would have been better. So if you are between sizes like me, go with the smaller size. If you are always a straight size, then go with your true size.

This is my first piece from Shabby Apple and I love it! I am looking forward to adding more Shabby Apple pieces to my wardrobe in the future. You can find this dress and more at ShabbyApple.com
