Transition to Spring: Shirt Dress

dress: c/o Zaful / bag: Tory Burch (sold out in black other color here )/sunglasses: Celine (sold out) similar here / shoes: INC (old) other option here, great bargain here

Spring is here! We are finally free from wrapping ourselves with thick coats. I’m just so over it!

Now even if we are experiencing spring weather, don’t put away all your winter clothes….yet. I’m sure there are some fall/winter clothes that you can still wear for spring. Come on, just because it’s spring it doesn’t mean you have to wear pastel or bright colors all the time. I’m not judging here, we all have our personal preferences.

But for me, I like to transition some of my fall/winter clothes into spring clothes so i can re-wear them over and over again and i love rich tones like orange, red, blue, black and brown. Those colors for me are classic and timeless no matter what kind of weather we have as long as the clothing doesn’t make me feel hot.

Just like this shirt dress from Zaful, even though it’s more like a fall/winter color but the material is chiffon. It’s a soft kind of fabric and it’s so comfy to wear around spring time. I can also imagine myself wearing this dress with sneakers, wedges and flat sandals. But today, I want to look chic and you can never be more chic in high heels. Another thing, I have been wearing a lot of casual clothes lately. As a stay-at-home mom, that’s my uniform and I ain’t pairing this nice shirt dress in sneakers or some flats because it makes me feel like I am still in my uniform.

It’s nice to be dressy sometimes, it makes me feel sexy. Although, I’m not sexy at all, but it makes me feel like a woman. A woman, a mom who got it all together. Although we all know that’s not true because motherhood is hard, but sometimes it’s nice to think that we got our crap together…..for a little while.

Mommy and Me

Me and my daughter, coordinating our outfits here. Her dress is from Target from last spring and it still fits her. It is just a bit shorter now because ofcourse she grew. But one tip for girl clothes- don’t put away their dresses yet because even though they are growing, their growth is mostly lengthening. So most likely it will still fit on them, but just a bit shorter. If it’s too short, you can have it worn as a top or a peplum top. Whatever the design is, try to work on it first before stashing them away. It saves you tons of money.

Thank you so much for reading and Have a great day!

    Lol. You have a hint of humor when you write, I like it.Your T-shirt dress is really nice even though I have no confidence in my legs whatsoever and I’m also very conservative. I love orange and all the bright hues, because once in a while I get to stand out of the crowd and I like the feeling. It gives me confidence. I love your daughter’s dress and yeah the shortenin stuff is true. I once wore a skirt for eight years. From my one year birthday till I was eight. Somehow, the waist fit.

    Finding alternative ways to help our kids wear their clothes to save money is always a good tip! I love the idea of turning a dress into a top, provided the arms will fit if it has sleeves! Nice outfit!
