    The Perfect Ivory Dress for Spring

    Spring

    The sounds of birds chirping, leaves budding, flowers blooming, warmer breezes on longer sunny days that seem to tease the promise of dreamy times. That’s how I envision every Spring! Everything seems to come alive; people, critters, birds, nature.  For a brief moment in time, there’s a level of self-awareness because everyone is looking forward to the warmer temperatures and the trees taking on much heavier coverage. There’s something tranquil about this transition and yet euphoric.

    With Spring also comes the celebration of Easter for many.  So here we are in April already and I am sharing this pretty white dress which will be the perfect dress for Easter and the outdoors.  Maybe a picnic possibly? We will have to see about that one….

    What I’m Wearing

    There’s something so exciting about the warmer days in Spring that just makes me want to smile and run into the sun. I love to wear lighter colors and flowy outfits this time of year. This dress is just so simple and classic. You can easily dress it up with pumps or strappy heels and look amazing! I chose to wear this particular dress with minimal jewelry it highlights the simplicity of the dress. The flirty short puff sleeves are so light that they tease ever so slightly in the wind. You can almost always never go wrong with a lighter colored dress ever!!! This Gianni Bini dress is currently available at Dillards

    I chose to accessorize the dress with this Coach crossbody bag (linked similar bag here and see my last post). Overall, I couldn’t be happier it’s Spring.  Now time for some much warmer weather and outdoor activities! What’s your favorite thing to do in the Spring? xo Louise

    Spring Wardrobe Essentials & Accessories

    Dreamy Spring

    My love for warmer temperatures and the beauty of Spring is not really a secret. Maybe it is because I grew up in Ghana, a tropical country filled with rich culture and history, or it could be that I am just the happiest when the weather is warm but not too hot.

    Recently the weather was so gorgeous in Dallas that I decided to step out and enjoy the city. Downtown Frisco was the place to be with restaurants and the Frisco Heritage Museum that consists of early and mid-20th-century buildings with various period exhibits.

    For those who do not know much about this city in Texas, it has become one of the fastest-growing city in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area. It is also home to “The Star”, a 91-acre campus that hosts the world headquarters of the Dallas Cowboys.

    For this blog, I wanted to show you a few Spring essential pieces and accessories that are simple enough for this season into the early Summer months. Where else would I shoot it than by these antique buildings that have so much character right next to the Frisco Heritage Museum.

    As always I am curious to hear your thoughts about the location as well as about what you like to wear in the Spring months. Who else is excited about this season?  Now let us talk about my fashion choices.

    The Outfit

    Spring Essentials

    Recently I went to Frisco and caught up on some beautiful scenic areas in this gorgeous city. I wanted to be comfortable and stylish at the same time, so here is the outfit I picked out.

    Ribbed Turtleneck Sweater – Yes, with our Dallas weather fluctuating in temperature, I opted for a light turtleneck sweater on this cool cloudy day. I usually pick neutral colors but this mustard colored sweater is just so fun and fresh. It feels good to wear something that is soft and light. The color reminds me of Spring; think sunflowers, marigold, and chrysanthemum.

    Trendy Sneakers – I simply love these Adidas sneakers! I remember getting them with my daughter early in the year. We had such a great time shopping for similar outfits and matching shoes. I went with the rose gold design and she went for gold which is one of her favorite colors. I plan on wearing these during Spring, Summer, and most likely during the Autumn season.

    Denim Culottes – Style is great but comfort is a necessity especially when you are out and about. I went with this calf-length jeans in washed denim. The high waist and style reminds me of the 70’s! It is currently one of my favorite outfits so I decided to purchase a similar one, also in white, with frayed raw-edge hems.

    Spring Accessories – For a huge bag lover getting this Rebecca Minkoff crossbody mini bag was a last minute decision. When choosing the perfect bag to wear with your outfit, it is important to take into account the occasion. For this casual outing, I wore an almond brown bag because it matched my DKNY leather cuff bracelet and complemented my watch and sunglasses.

    What do you guys think?
