Day To Night Dresses

I was recently being interviewed and was asked what was the one piece in my closet that I felt the best in.  My answer?  A floral print dress I've had for more than 3 years.  After we wrapped up, I kept thinking about that question - so I went & took a look in my closet and realized that the garment I have the least of are dresses.  Why on earth do I own so few if that is the one piece that makes me feel the most confident and beautiful?  So, I decided right then & there that I would make it my mission to purchase & wear more dresses in the coming year.

Ever since she first launched her brand, I've been in love with all the feminine pieces in the LC Lauren Conrad line - I even got to meet her in person at a conference a few years ago (she was just as flawlessly beautiful & gracious as you'd imagine).  So I was thrilled to discover that she just launched a new collection at Kohl's called the Dress Up Shop - it's full of pretty separates & dresses that are perfect for all your upcoming special occasions.  I tried on several of the pieces & this chiffon pleated skirt fit like a dream - it's fully lined and just the right length (there's also a dress version, which is super flattering!).  I did find that most of these styles ran a bit big, so I recommend sizing down when ordering online.

The breezy, lightweight fabric of this cold-shoulder dress will be ideal for those hot summer days when I want to throw on one piece & instantly look put-together.  The shape is so forgiving too - sometimes I don't want to wear something that is super fitted and clingy.  And you all know how obsessed I am with this blush bucket bag (last seen here) - it's a great on-trend piece at an affordable price!  I'd also style this dress with flat sandals & a straw hat for a more casual feel.  

What I'm wearing:

From the moment I put on this floral print maxi dress, I was completely smitten with it.  The ruffle detailing gives it such an soft, romantic feel & it really makes a statement!  This would be great for wearing to a wedding or special event this spring/summer.  I usually style my hair down, but when I'm dressing up for a special night out, sometimes it's nice to pull it off my face into a tousled ponytail - plus, it really shows off the elegant high neckline of this dress.
