STYLE GURU STYLE: Spring Is In The Air

The flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping, but can it really be? Has spring finally sprung? Indeed it has, and it’s about time. On a Sunday, I couldn’t wait to break out the bright florals and ditch my parka for good!

The alice + olivia resort 2015 collection is stunning and definitely inspired this particular ensemble. This collection is all about fun, whimsy patterns and flowers galore! I knew I wanted to wear something that embodied the fresh spring season but still stayed true to my personal style in not being too flashy.

I found a perfect balance with my blush-colored shift dress that is splashed in colorful shades of pink and blue. I loved how the dress had a structured look to it, just like many of the pieces in the alice + olivia collection. I also really loved how the sleeves kept the dress modest and not frump-tastic!

My absolute favorite part about this dress has to be the back. I’ve never been one to think that I can pull off cutouts, but I’ve realized that virtually anyone can. The cutouts just have to be in the right place. I thought this subtle triangular cutout in the back was just adorable without showing too much.

I finished off my look with a simple pair of nude pumps to keep the focus on the dress. I also went with a blue ombré handbag to add an additional punch of color and fun to the overall ensemble.

Get My Look: 1. A floral dress. 2. A nude pump. 3. A bold handbag.
