Happy Monday, ladies! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. The weather has decided to warm up here a bit, and we had an absolutely gorgeous day yesterday. All this means is that I couldn't not wear bright and bold colors this Spring! (Double negative, anyone?)
Before we kick things off, just wanted to mention some of the many fun changes happening here at SaaCA. In addition to Kelly's first featured post, we rolled out our post redesign yesterday. We think the daily post will be a lot easier to navigate, read, and shop from here on out.
And if you want to stay up-to-date on what's going on over at SaaCA, you can subscribe to our email list by clicking here. We actually have three mailers you can subscribe to: a daily email, a weekly newsletter, sent Sunday night, and a recently revived sales newsletter, which will probably be sent 2x a week.
Enough of the updates, let's kick off today's OOTD.
Today's featured item is a tie detail shift dress from Talbots, with metallic accessories to accentuate
I've modeled today's dress one way, and I also pulled 2 alternate boards together
The dress is shoppable via a text or image widget
Each alternate is shoppable via a text widget
So, I had to feature it.
This dress is absolutely darling and has the cutest tie detail. It comes in two colors, including black, but since this is the year of bold colors, I went with orange.
I've worn it simply today and let my accessories do all of the heavy liftings. But if you're looking for alternative ways to wear it, scroll down, as I've put together two.
My accessories today are metallic---primarily gold. Metallic accessories work well with bright colors, especially when you have a simple outfit like today's.
My necklace is old too, but make sure to check out these Devon Leigh similars.
I'm a sucker for little outfit details like today's dress tie. Always nice to mix things up a bit and put a fresh spin on an old favorite.
Happy Sunday, ladies! I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend so far. With society continuing to open up, 2022 looks like it will be chock-full of in-person special occasions—much more so than the past two years. Maybe you’ll attend church services; celebrate a wedding; or simply get together with family for brunch. This all means one thing: it’s dress season. So today, I’ve put together a guide to Spring dresses.
First: this guide isn’t exhaustive. I’ve restricted it to 6 dress types:
If this post is successful, we can certainly extend the guide to include more dresses.
For each dress type, I’ve i ) gone through the archives and pulled examples of how I’ve worn that in the past; and ii) put together shoppable widgets from the following retailers:
If you don’t see anything you like, in the widgets, you can click on the above links to take you directly to new dress arrivals. So let’s get to my guide to Spring dresses 2022.
To help you out a bit more, I put together a quick definitional guide for each dress type. I’ve also created a collage of the general silhouettes that you might find useful as you think about what dresses work best for you.
A wrap dress has a closure in the front. It’s formed by wrapping one side across the other. The ties are then tied together in the back.
A sheath dress is a fitted, straight-cut dress. It’s nipped at the waistline with no waist seam.
A flared dress has a top bodice that is fitted and a skirt that flares out.
A midi dress is any type of dress that rises above the ankles but falls below the knees. It’s sometimes called “the mid-calf”.
A shirtdress takes details from a shirt: a collar, a button front, or cuffed sleeves are all examples.
A shift dress’ cloth falls straight from the shoulders and has darts around the bust.
A few quick tips when shopping for dresses this Spring.
Alright, let’s see some examples of how to wear these dresses.
Yesterday was Fridays with Oscar. We’ve got a tasty recipe for you and a sneak peek at some home renovations.
