Flavors To Follow – Spring Dresses

Hi friends!  Hope you all had a fantastic week.  The weather is warming up here in California and the weekend is upon us!  I actually got a new hairdo yesterday and I can’t wait to share it with y’all.  I GOT BANGS!!!!  Well, I already had side swept ones but this time I got short straight bangs all across the forehead.  And I already had my mom take some outfit pictures for me with my new bangs so I’ll be sharing those with you later!  If you follow my twitter, then you were lucky enough to get a sneak peek already!  😉  I’ve already spent half a day with my nephew and he’s just the cutest thing ever.

Well for this week’s Flavors To Follow (get excited), I put together a collection of fun Spring Dresses!!  Spring will officially be here in 3 weeks, so it’s time to start thinking about stocking up on those florals and light colored dresses!  Here are some of my faves:

1 i am seriously swooning over this little number from anthro’s new wedding line, BHLDN! the colors, the details, the bow, i love it all! only thing is the price…
2 and this dress from anthropologie has similar colors to number 1, i love grey + yellow!!
3 i am loving the fun pattern on this mango dress.. and pretty much all of the mango dresses on the site right now!
4 i might have hit up kohl’s last week and bought this beautiful lauren conrad floral ruffle chiffon dress, seriously in love with her collection! 😉
5 flutter away to la la land with this sweet striped dress from free people!
6 isn’t this ruffle trim chiffon tank dress + halter tank top from yesstyle sooo adorable? AND super affordable too!
7 take an afternoon stroll through the farmer’s market this the shabby apple mauna kea!
8 red velvet just released their spring dress line this week and the kite dress was hands down my fave! the fabric was designed by the adorable elsie and guess what? of course it’s already sold out!!
9 have i told you how much i LOVE stripes? and paired with a bow? that’s perfection in the form of the mcintosh dress from spool72!

Ummmm… can money just grow on trees so I can have every one of these dresses, please?  😉  Well, I’m pretty much getting a taste of Spring here in California as it will be 70s this weekend, I just wish I could bring this weather back to Kansas City with me, *sigh*…

P.S. I’m giving away some pretty hairpins, so perfect for dressing up your hair in the Spring time over at Be merry, Kate!

P.P.S. Don’t forget to enter The Heyday Shop (fabric, ring, and cute tape), Josiah’s Nest (charm necklace) and A Spoonful of Love (eyeshadow makeup palette) giveaways which will be open until Tuesday!

Have a beautiful weekend, friend!

    Oh my gosh! I love all of those dresses and it makes me want to buy them even though we are in autumn here. Not that it matters it’s still quite warm. Stripes, bows, ruffles! Some of my fave things.

    Sandy, I’m so glad you’re having fun in California. I wish I could get up and see you but I’m stuck at a conference. And these dresses are precisely what I needed — I’ve been on a dress hunt all week. Spring is here in my mind; all I need are a few fantastic dresses to kick it off right.

  39. March 4, 2011 / 6:08 pm

    That’s my fave BHLDN dress, too! It’s perfection!

  40. March 4, 2011 / 6:18 pm

    Bangs are so fun!! I love the dresses, especially #1.

  43. March 5, 2011 / 11:53 am

    I’ve totally had my eye that anthro dress — but alas, I believe I will be making do with a cute little Old Navy dress instead as it will go much easier on the pocketbook.

  44. March 5, 2011 / 1:30 pm

    yay spring! i’ve been thinking about little dresses today b/c it’s in the 50’s today and for us that’s huge! you’re so lucky with your Cali 70’s. love these picks 🙂
