Dress Overload!


YSL Fashion Quote

With my Hawaii trip being just a few weeks away (who's counting)...I have this crazy obsession with buying dresses for the trip. I learned a few years back that the best thing to pack for these warm, tropical trips are dresses - and a lot of them. Dresses are easy to pack because they fold up small, they are single items so you don't have to worry about matching tops to bottoms and they are versatile - you can dress them up or down with your shoes and jewelry.

I really felt the need to get all new dresses this year as I feel like I'm always wearing the same ones each trip. So I bought. Oh boy did I buy! I decided on mostly lower cost items because that way I can buy more. Genius idea, right?

Anyway, here is what's new in my closet...

Sosie Off the Shoulder Chevron Dress
I imagine I will also wear this one as a top! So 2 for 1 - yay for convertible clothing!


Sosie Colorblock Dress
I am a sucker for a halter dress and this one is so cute in person!

Lulus C'Mon Get Happy One Shoulder Dress
I got this in Peach and Black because I love it so much. A warning to all of you...this style runs super small in the lower body portion. I normally wear a small in dresses and I had to return mine to get a large for it to fit like the picture. It's never fun to have to size up TWO sizes but at least it looks cute now!
Remember, never get stuck on a size... 

Lulus Black and White Striped Strapless Dress
Striped Dress - Sold out but I love this one!
I am always on the lookout for a classic b&w striped dress. This one is perfect!


Tart Collections Jumpsuit Romper

I realize this one is not really a dress, but I am still into rompers/jumpers this season and I think they are so amazing for traveling. Except for the complicated going to the bathroom thing...

Anyway, I love to travel in my Tart maxi dresses so I figured I would try out this jumpsuit. I have to say, I LOVE it. It's super comfy and looks really good on. Of course, I have to get it shortened because it's crazy long (Stacy Kiebler has it so you can only imagine how long it is on me) but that's an easy fix!

I also have my J. Crew Maxi from my Palm Desert J. Crew shopping haul so I am pretty much set. But of course, if any of you have recommendations of cute dresses you have seen/bought lately, send them over. I can squeeze in a little more room in my bag if need be!

What dresses are you loving this spring?
