As someone who wears jeans and a tee pretty much every day, I’m quite picky about dresses. Especially mini dresses. Finding a spring dress I actually want to wear is not an easy feat! I hate dealing with them on windy days, and I feel like I’m constantly fidgeting like a five-year-old to get comfortable. When I do wear dresses, I’m usually in something that falls past the knee and is loose fitting, of course. Until now, I’ve reserved my mini dresses for beach vacations and weddings. But with this beautiful weather, an easy spring dress is a must. So I went on the hunt for one I’d actually want to wear.
Then I found this perfect linen dress from Anthropologie! Its structured fit solves the wind issue (no more worrying about Marilyn Monroe moments!). Plus, it’s great for just about any occasion! Pair it with a blazer and heels to make it work appropriate or keep it casual with espadrilles and a leather hat for the weekend. You could even add a moto jacket and booties for a night out. I wore it on a weekend trip to Healdsburg and it was the perfect piece to take me from day to night. This dress is easily my new spring staple!
