Dresses and Wedges for Spring | Fashion Friday

Friday, March 4, 2011

Disclaimer: Please ignore my hair, lack of make up or pedicure and focus on the dress and shoes. :D

You wouldn't know it by my almost daily uniform of jeans, but I'm really girly. I love, love, love dresses and skirts. They always seem to 'come back' in style as the must wear look for spring or summer. What I'm seeing in my magazines under spring trends are dresses and wedges, which is a look that totally works for me since I'm short.

I love the fun pattern and great colors in this dress. They're both definitely me. If I had any skills with a sewing machine, I'd make the dress more fitted at the waist so it fell in an A line. I debated pairing it with black wedges, but that didn't feel very spring like.

The dress is from Target but I'm not sure I'll keep it because of the fit. At only $15, it's a great deal and I can see wearing it instead of capris. What do you think, is it too 'maternity' for me?


  1. it doesn't scream maternity at all to me. very cute! I couldn't pull it off but you can!

  2. CUTE! I actually almost bought that dress last night, but I was too lazy to try it on.

  3. You look adorable in it! It may not be fitted, but with your figure it doesn't need to be. :)

  4. Oh and just so you know...by your figure, I mean tiny and perfect (not that I am jealous - well, a bit). ;)

  5. I don't think it looks like a maternity dress at all (although I must admit I have not been pregnant in 10 years, so I don't know what anyone is wearing these days); I think it is a great idea to wear a dress instead of capris. Every time I wear one of my Ross $10 specials, paired with high heels, many people say, "Oh, you look so nice." Little do they know that I'm wearing a total of $30 worth of materials. In my capris, nobody says anything which speaks volumes.

  6. It looks fabulous, Mel. Keep it! Definitely not maternity at all.

  7. OMG I love love LOVE that dress. I'm going to Target to buy one, and that's that. We can wear them together, when we spoon at BlogHer! That won't be awkward at all.

  8. @Micki - Thank you. Anyone can pull off that dress!

    @Julie - I really liked the other pattern with the blues, too. I *may* go back and see if it's still there. If so, it's fate!

    @kalea - You're sweet, thank you!

    @bloggoneit - Yes! Sometimes taking a little extra effort is totally worth it.

    @MommyCracked - Thank you! I still wish it were more fitted but it's so comfy!

    @Bejewell - Absolutely! We can be the Wonder Twins.
