What’s goin’ on gang? How’s everyone’s week been so far? Mine has been great! The weather’s been absolutely beautiful, I’ve been pretty dang productive, and last night I got to meet a blogger friend in person for the first time! Plus, we enjoyed some amaaaazing food so what’s not to love? I’m off to work this afternoon and then meeting Charlie afterwards for a quick photoshoot before we grab some dinner. We have to take advantage of nice weather and schedules that match up now that we live farther away from where we work, hehe. It’s not really all bad though because it just gives us a reason to have some midweek dinner dates. 🙂 He’s my absolute favorite, that guy!

So let’s talk spring trends for a minute today. Two super hot spring trends this year are stripes (down with it!) and button front dresses (also down with it!). So not only do I love these two trends, but when I find them combined in one great piece, I gotta go for it, ya know? I jumped all over this striped button front dress dress when it came out at Nordstrom earlier in the year and have been itching so badly to break it out and take it for spin! And the time has finally come! And even better, it’s still in stock in all sizes and now on sale for $33!
There’s so many ways you could style this striped button front dress but, for its debut on the bloggity, I paired it with some lil cutie flat coral colored sandals to give things a pop of color for springtime. I carried my grey circle bag and kept accessories to a minimum with a pair of white tassel earrings to keep the spring vibes going.
I love the wide sleeves and the button style with the deep V. It almost makes it feel a little bit baseball-y, dontcha think? If you wanna run with that and keep things casual, this dress would be super cute with a dainty pair of white sneakers! It’s still very feminine, though, because the tie belt makes it super flattering! I’m planning to dress it up a bit for work by wearing a simple pair of taupe peep toe summer booties and adding a dainty necklace!
Who else is loving stripes and button front dresses? And better yet, who is loving striped button front dresses?! Stripes are hardly a trend, they don’t really go out of style, but nonetheless, stripes and button front dresses are two great spring trends that aren’t super risky to invest in!
One last really popular spring trend? Splotchy legs from a shotty self tan job. Hahaha! If you didn’t notice the legs, go back for a laugh. Good news though, the self tanning skills have improved since taking these photos… slightly… I was thinking of sharing a post on self tanning if you guys would be interested! I obviously wasn’t amazing at it at first so I thought I’d share some dos and donts that I figured out along the way. Let me know your thoughts!
