This dress has been around as long as I can remember. It came to end up in my closet when I instructed my husband, then boyfriend, on what I wanted for my birthday, I went even so far as to rip out the catalogue page and circle said item. I might of even wanted him to save a little dough, so I probably forwarded him a discount code. True love, right? So it was and it wasn't a surprise when my birthday rolled around and here was this dress. I was in love. I mean the VS model in the catalog made it look good, but it looked equally good on a regular girl like me- the off-the-shoulder (which I've always loved), the sheer blouse-y arms, and the flirty ruffles. Just. So. Good.

I've worn this dress countless times as, well, a dress but never did I experiment with it as a top until last week. The lightweight material made it easy to tuck into a pair of denim, and with a spring feeling in the air it just felt right.

How will you be switching up your wardrobe for spring?

  1. You look like vacation to me! He is so cute to get you that dress -- my husband gets me gifts the same way. He just takes me to the store, has me pick out something and then he gives it to me and it is like 'happy birthday - do you like it?!' :) Too funny!
