If you can only buy one piece for your spring wardrobe, make it a dress!  One with a beautiful print, like florals, water color, dots or stripes, is going to be your most used dress this season!  Look for a cut that is classic enough to offer your wardrobe a lot of variety.  Modern detail like a high-low hem is still relevant and keeps your look fresh for spring!

I found this brand name flirty dress at T.J. Maxx. It has been my best designer buy to date! The original price was $138 and I scored it for $39.99! It is sleeveless, has an interesting pattern, a high-low hem and is very lightweight fabric but is full lined (great quality!) so it will be perfect for the hot weather this summer.  There is also a key hole at the top with a pretty little button.  I like the details in the design of this dress!

The contrast of the soft yellow and brown with the seafoam green is lovely for spring!  The colors are like nothing else in my wardrobe, as I normally wear bold color or black. Soft hues are not my norm. Totally love it though!

I went for a casual lunch date outfit.  This look also functions well for running errands or attending the school play in your daughter’s classroom.  I paired the dress with a mint green denim jacket, some fun jewelry and low-heeled sandals.  The dress can also be worn with a belt and booties (how cute!!) or nude heels, a little shimmer on the shoulder and coral lipstick for a fun date night look.

T.J. Maxx has a great selection of jewelry from studded bracelets (like I wore in my Black and White outfit from T.J. Maxx), watches and beautiful drop earrings, like the one’s I wore with this look.  This mint green color is my favorite color for spring! I’m so glad I found such pretty earrings in this color that I can wear with many outfits!

The necklace added an element of fun and casual chic.  See the one feather charm?

The sandals are a bronze tone, a nice change from nude or brown if you are looking for a neutral shoe.  The heel height is absolutely perfect for every day, even running around with the kids! If you don’t wear heels often, start with a pair like these then move up to a 3 inch when you become more comfortable.

Star style you can steal:

When shopping for patterns, be open to try on a variety of prints. You may surprise yourself and really like something that you didn’t love on the hanger! If all-over print is too much for you, opt for a single piece and pair it with a solid.
