Emulating Spring

While I wish I could be sporting bare legs like I see other bloggers sporting, that's just not a reality here where temps continue to be regularly in the 40s. Nevertheless, I still want to be wearing something spring-like. Then, while browsing the SheIn website, it hit me. Florals and spring go together like peanut butter and jelly. This dress gives enough coverage for cooler spring temps while emulating spring with its pretty floral print. Long sleeved dresses are tough to find, especially in such pretty colors and styles. Of course I snatched it up immediately. It was obviously a popular item because it keeps popping out of stock and then back in stock. As of last night when I checked, it was back in stock in all the sizes (for reference I am wearing a medium). For under $30, it's such a great piece for spring! Otherwise check out all the fab SheIn maxi dresses here!

Mine came in just over a week and I was able to pair it with my new lace up flats from DSW and Tory Burch tote a la the recent Shopbop sale. It's definitely going to be my go-to tote this spring and summer. I use my black tote so much I new a cognac one would be great option for me!

  4. I've seen that dress and was contemplating on buying it, but then I realized I had way too much floral already. Seeing how good it looked on you, you're making me regret!

  12. I've seen this dress at Shein and had my eye on it. So very pretty, and a perfect solution to wearing spring style in colder weather. Love the Tory Burch bag too. <3 Happy Thursday. XOXO, Elif

  28. What a gem of a dress, Laura, and so versatile too :) I think you look amazing in it. I've always loved maxis and midis but because I'm so short, I tend to favour the latter xoxo

    Do join my link-up if you can, Laura, it'd be lovely to have you xoxo

  29. A floral dress and blush flats certainly do say spring! I hope it starts to get a bit warmer for you soon! We were lucky and got a taste of it, but next week it's going to be back in the 40's for me too.

  31. Cute dress, do you wear leggings under to keep you warm? I am a big wimp and could never go bare legs with temps in the 40s.

    Thank you for being a part of TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you soon!

    1. That is a good idea! I am wearing a slip and long sleeve shirt to help! The day I wore this we had a surprisingly nice 50 degree day, too!

  32. Just like everyone else says...this is quite a stunning dress. I really think what makes the whole look modern is the great shoes! You could totally hide many layers under this dress, and even throw a sweater on top!! Love it! jodie
