Spring Fashion DayDreams

I spent a little bit of time at the mall this week. I am liking some of the newer trends in for the spring and summer.

Polka dots and bright colors are in. Fitted tops and flared skirts. So cute. So feminine. So flattering. There is a nice mix of maxi and mini. Though you won't catch me in a mini anything.

I was not as thrilled with the prices. Even at 40% off, each of the three dresses that caught my eye would ring in at over $80. I can cloth my entire family for a season with $80.But, if money grew on trees, I know where I'd by a dress-or three....

I took some time to style this polka dot dress on Polyvore. Have you ever used Polyvore? I find it a bit of fun and a bit of a headache. But maybe the headache is because I am not truly a fashionista. Not even at heart...

So, basically my wardrobe consists of black, white, brown and coral. No joke. Which is why it isn't surprising-to me, at least-that I'd accessorize this dress with pops of coral. Probably no necklace, but a stack of bangles, a showy ring, and a big bag. (which would be for self defense-in case someone decided to attack me, I'd be able to whack them with my purse.

I like the feel of the fabric of this dress. It was almost a jersey knit. But nice. Very comfortable. I think I would style it with white sandals, and a chunky white necklace. Although, those nude sandals are pretty cool too.

As for this one...I don't know why, but I liked it. I am not a stripes person. But this one caught my eye. I like the cut. The material was heavy. Almost like a polyester or heavy knit. I would wear a retro-y red necklace with it. Like one from CarolineShop

Do you buy a new dress for Easter? Or make one? My mom always bought or made me a new dress for Easter every year. I loved my Easter dresses. Here is Meres in my absolute favorite Easter dress when I was a little girl! I loved the smocking and the twirly skirt.

I have sort of kept up the dress tradition with my girls. Not so much for myself anymore. 

Regardless, if you could, what dress would you buy for Easter?
