With Spring inching it’s way in, one color I’m happy to add more of to my closet this Spring is white!  Now, I do love me some winter white and happily wear this color year round.  Something about spring though really makes me take baby steps away from my favorite all black palette and start gravitating more towards white.  Especially a good white dress like this one.

If you are bride, I LOVE this dress for a bridal shower or rehearsal dinner.  I had a girlfriend ask for some help last year finding a rehearsal dinner dress that could also be worn during the church rehearsal.  I wish I would have found this dress then because it would be so perfect!  Not getting married anytime soon, this white dress would also be perfect for Easter Sunday or a luncheon.  I would also absolutely wear this to work too.

Also, quick mention about my silver necklace.  This is a new to me brand sold at Nordstrom, and I’m obsessed!  I tend to wear statement earrings, and I love pairing them with more simple, dainty style necklaces.  I’ve been wearing this silver one with everything from tees to dresses.  If you are looking for a new everyday necklace, you should definitely check out this brand! I’m planning to add a gold one soon.

I rounded up a few more Spring white dresses under $100 for you below.  I found mostly dressy and a few more casual styles to hit all of your spring dress needs.  Hope ya’ll have a fabulous week!

An Easy Way to Mix Prints

We made it to Friday Ya’ll!!

Let’s talk about this outfit and my easy way to mix prints.  I LOVE mixing prints usually opting for one print in my top and another in my bottom.  If you are new to print mixing or not quite comfortable with it yet, I wanted to offer you a simple way to start mixing and build your confidence in your print mixing skills.

Start with your top and pick one print.  For this outfit, I chose this fun side twist striped top.  Then pick an accessory item, like a belt, shoes, or purse, to add in a secondary print.  I added in my floral print shoes.  FYI – I wear these floral heels SO MUCH! If you are considering a pair, do it!!!  It’s amazing how many outfits you can make them work with, like this one for example.

The key to this easy print mix is to have one dominant print, the stripes in this look, and let your second print be a bit smaller which is why I opt for an accessory item over two prints on two dominant pieces.  If you try this a few times, you may start noticing how much you like certain prints together. Once you find one you really love, step it up a notch.  For this outfit, I could add in a floral print pant or pencil skirt and then change my shoe to a solid color.

A couple other prints to play with other than stripes and floral are plaid and leopard, really any animal print.  Try stripes paired with leopard, floral paired with plaid, or even mix two animal prints together.

What are your favorite two prints to mix together?

February Reader Favorites

Reader Favorites for Spring Outfits and Winter Fashion | Petite Fashion Blogger Lady in Violet
Hello Hello! I thought it would be fun to do something a little different and share your favorite items from the month of February.  I always love looking at which items and styles you all are gravitating towards each month.

So how do I figure out which items ya’ll loved?

I use an affiliate program called Rewardstyle. If you click on a link from my blog or social media that takes you to a product page on a retailer’s site, Rewardstyle is able to track that your visit to that site originated from me. The Rewardstyle affiliate program pays me a commission per purchase made. Basically, if you click on one of my links and end up making a purchase, I earn a small commission.

Because I use this service I also have access to certain data analytics. This means I can see and keep track of which items are clicked on and which lead to a purchase.  I do not see who clicked on the link or what items might have been purchased. For example, if you click on my latest pair of heels and then purchase a new red lipstick too, I will only be able to see that a purchase was made and that the heels link is how you arrived to the retailer’s site.  It’s kind of similar to how a salesperson may earn commission in the store.

I’m a numbers gal, so I love diving into all the data every month.  These analytics allow me to keep track of what ya’ll loved and didn’t so much love.  If I see one item is clicked on and/or purchased more, I might consider sharing a restyle over on Instagram.  These commissions are an easy way for you to support my blog without having to do anything extra and a way for me to cover the variety of expenses that come with running a blog.  So if you have ever made a purchase through one of my links know that I am so grateful for you and your support of my blog.

If you’d like to see me share your reader favorites more often, leave me a comment and let me know!

Hello Ladies! I warned you I had more sheer tops coming in the future! Look closely though, this sheer top is actually a bodysuit, and I’m kinda in love.  The fact that this flowy chiffon look is also a bodysuit help keep that perfectly tucked in look all day or night.  You can wear this out for a night of dancing without worrying about it coming untucked!

The sheer chiffon layer paired with the black cami is perfect to go from work day to date night. I pair this with a pencil skirt for the office, or you could also pair it with a pair of gray or colored slacks.  To transition this long sleeve bodysuit to night, change into a pair of your favorite skinny jeans and heels or a cute little mini skirt with boots.

I opted to go sans a necklace and opt for a pop of color with my feather earrings and dark pink clutch.  You could also go with stud earrings and a long pendant necklace for a different look.

Also because I feel it’s uber important info to have for all bodysuits, this one snaps at the bottom for easy bathroom access and has a thong fit on the bottom.  Have you tried out a bodysuit yet?  Love them or leave them?
