You all! I have a fun surprise for you today. My 16 y/o daughter is making a guest appearance on the blog.
I’d love to say, “We had so much fun shooting this look…” but it was 43 degrees — 33 with the windchill factor — so yeah.
What I can say is, she definitely has a great appreciation for my job after this experience. Ha!
No, seriously, we did have fun. It was a bonding moment, for sure. And isn’t she darling?
I know, she will hate me for that. but I think she looks amazing in this dress, and Alison really captured her fun-loving personality… even though she was freezing. She’s a good sport.
So today I’m partnering with Kohl’s to style three spring dresses that are perfect for Easter, wedding guest attire, or other spring celebrations you may have on the horizon.
If you have a daughter or granddaughter who is looking for a dressy spring dress, we found lots of great options in the Kohl’s junior department.
After perusing the online options, Caroline settled on this floral maxi dress.
This dress has such pretty details. I love the lace trim and the shoulder ties with pom pom details. It’s cut a little low in the front, so she wore a lace trim cami underneath.
She paired it with wedge sandals that are a little higher than anything she has worn before, but at 16, she’s ready to start wearing higher heels.
I feel like they still look youthful enough for a teenager, and she feels grownup wearing them, so it’s a win-win. These sandals are comfortable and fit true to size.
For me, I love a stretchy ruched sheath because it’s stretchy and comfortable, and the ruching is so figure flattering.
This blue floral ruched sheath immediately caught my eye because the pattern is so pretty, plus I love how the colors coordinate with my daughter’s dress.
The boat neck and cap sleeves are flattering to most body types, plus it’s fully lined, and super easy to slip on and go with no zippers or belts to futz with. For size reference, I have the medium.
When a dress has a lot of pattern like this, I think it’s fun to wear shoes that coordinate. I love my neutrals, but sometimes it’s fun to switch it up and wear a colored shoe, so I paired this dress with blue d’orsay pumps.
The third dress is a similar style to the blue one, but I know a lot of you prefer sleeves, so I picked another floral ruched sheath with 3/4-length sleeves.
Again, this dress is fully lined so comfortable and figure-flattering. It’s stretchy without clinging, which is really hard to find.
I like the way the flowers are placed sparingly on the solid background, allowing a lot of room for the eye to rest, and the colors are so gorgeous. The pink, green, and white really pop against the black.
The best thing about this dress is, you can wear it at least three seasons of the year. In fact, I’d probably wear it any time of year but swap out the shoes for a closed-toe pump in the winter.
