Classy Spring Outfit Ideas

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always preferred wearing dresses over anything else.  There’s something about the way they make me feel.  Feminine and classy.

I’m so excited about todays post because I’m partnering with Banana Republic to share with you these two amazing spring dresses!  I’m completely in love with this chevron pleated midi dress.  From the colors to the pleating, everything is just simply beautiful.  It’s the perfect dress to wear to work or a spring wedding.

Sizing runs true to size and I’m wearing size 00 petite.  It’s a slightly loose in the bust area but that’s only because I recently inadvertently lost some weight.  I’d recommend ordering your usual size.  The length is a midi length and hits in the middle of my calves.  The pleating is perfection and flows beautifully when you walk.

It comes in two different colors – royal blue and black/white.  The best part about this dress is that it doesn’t wrinkle!  It’s also fully lined and has a back concealed zipper.

I paired this dress with these suede block heel pumps but you can also wear it with these slingback pumps or bare high heel sandals.

I added this blush pink maxi trench coat and this white Italian leather mini tote for a versatile and chic spring look.  Love it so much and would highly recommend!

This next outfit is more on the casual side.  How adorable is this floral drop-waist shift dress?  The print is so pretty and gives me all the spring vibes.  Sizing runs true to size and I’m wearing size 00 petite.

Doesn’t it look amazing paired with this pink maxi trench?  I am seriously obsessed with this outfit.  It’s such a great combo and you can dress it up or wear it casually for brunch on the weekends.  If the weather doesn’t permit bare legs, you can easily pair this dress with some navy tights and closed toe pumps.

I think this is the first drop-waist shift dress that I own and have liked.  So comfortable and easy to wear.  Love it to pieces and would highly recommend.

Can we just take a moment and talk about this pink maxi trench?  You’re probably thinking that petites can’t pull off a maxi trench but guess what?  This one is AMAZING and fits perfectly with no alterations needed (including the sleeves).  I was skeptical at first but I’m here to tell you that petite gals can most definitely pull this off.  The trench is a tailored cut which means it doesn’t look or feel like a tent.

If you need a cute white bag for spring, I would highly recommend this Italian leather mini tote.  The leather is buttery soft.  It’s available in three different colors (red, black and white) and three different sizes (mini, medium and large).  You can also expand the bag on both sides for additional space plus it gives the bag a different shape.

I’m coveting so many pieces from Banana Republic’s spring line.  Here are some of my favorites:

All these items I’m wearing tend to sell out really fast (especially in smaller sizes) so just giving you a heads up. 🙂

7 Items You Need For Spring

Leave a comment!

  1. Those are gorgeous dresses, I love the shorter one even though the first one looks very classy but sophisticated.

  2. What’s the key to finding a midi dress the looks good? I’m about your height and feel like they just make me look shorter but I love them!

    • I think it’s all about the cut and fit. There is most definitely a fine line for petite gals so I totally get it. It takes me several tries to find the one that I feel good in. 🙂

  3. You look like you got some of your sass back! I’m so happy to see you smiling! Love the dresses!

  4. I love the espadrilles! Usually I’m hesitant to wear shoes with much going on with straps because I fear it shortens my short legs! But these are really working for you! Also, your hair looks gorgeous! Like caramel or honey! 👍🏼

    • Hi Miranda! Don’t fear shoes with straps! Petite gals can totally pull them off:) Aww thank you so much about my hair – I love it! Such a nice change and much needed 🙂

  5. I love following your blog!! Any idea if Banana Republic typically restocks sold out items? I went to order the black and white dress (it’s been sitting in my cart since you posted it!) and it’s sold out! 🙁
