We are currently in the middle of our annual winter heatwave and its so nice! The warm temps have me thinking ahead to spring and summer and a girls trip I have planned for later this month. I’ve been shopping for the getaway and finding so many fun pieces and a lot of color! I wanted to share what I have so far in case you’re looking for resort wear inspo.
The last time I had anywhere to wear a cocktail dress was the weekend before the world shut down in 2020. There seemed to be a lot more of those occasions in the pre-COVID days. Now that it’s been over a year and a half I’m a little rusty when it comes to shopping for party dresses but have a couple events on the calendar this fall (COVID willing) and started to peek around to see what I could find.
We just got back from a quick little weekend getaway to Palm Desert. I love the desert in the spring, the weather is the absolute best – 80 and sunny during the day and 70 at night. I was so excited to pack for a warm weather getaway and put together a little capsule wardrobe in case you’re looking for inspo for an upcoming vacation.

Maybe it’s because our weather has been so warm this week, but I’m really feeling spring right now! I absolutely love the start of spring (really any new season), but I think spring clothes are my favorite. The easiest way to start transitioning your wardrobe right now is with sweaters you can wear when it’s both cold and warm. I found six that are perfect to refresh your winter wardrobe and wear into the warmer months over dresses, shorts and skirts.

Love this light weight sweater. It’s perfect for spring but can be layered for colder days too. The bright stripes are so fun.
Love the thick stripes and chunky knit here. Looks super cute with blue jeans but would also work with white denim and shorts.
This sweater comes in a few different colors and is right on trend. It has a slouchier fit and will look so cute with cutoffs when it’s warmer.
The detailing on this sweater is gorgeous and I really love the side ties. So pretty and can be worn so many ways. It would look great over a swimsuit or a dress.
I did the bra tuck with this one to fake a cropped look, but it’s definitely a full length sweater. I think the color is so pretty, especially with these white jeans. It comes in two other colors as well.
I wore this to an event earlier in the month and loved how flattering it was. The wrap style lets you adjust how fitted you want it to be so. It’s the perfect neutral to wear with just about anything.
Hope you’ve had a great week – thank you so much for reading and following!
It’s the first week of August which means fall fashion is being shoved down our throats every time we go shopping. I’m still in total summer mode and paying absolutely no attention to anything even remotely fall like yet. Do you want to know what I am paying attention to? Amazing markdowns on summer stuff. Today I want to share my favorite summer dresses that are all discounted. Because, you know it’s going to be warm until at least October.
- Such a cute yellow maxi dress that’s on sale for under $50 & comes in three other color ways.
- Love this dainty white dress.
- Another really cute dress – love the star print.
- Really cute mini dress that would transition well into fall.
- Prettiest white long sleeve eyelet dress. Perfect for the end of summer.
- Love the color on this off the shoulder dress. Marked down under $50.
- I love this golden midi dress. Another one that would work into fall too.
- Such a cute chambray dress – only available in a couple of sizes though.
- This one is so cute – could be worn with a shirt under too.
I’m such a warm weather girl and spring and summer are my favorite seasons. If it’s cool or rainy for any real length of time I’m not myself. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve gotten a few new spring pieces that I’m excited about. It’s been a little chilly here lately and all I want is for it to warm up so I can wear them!
I wore this dress to a mommy and me tea party a few weeks ago and then again on Mother’s Day. It’s such a fun statement. Mine was gifted by Allison New York and I can’t find it online, however Chicwish makes a version of it that looks practically identical which I’ve linked.
This top! It’s even prettier in person. I can’t wait to wear it with cutoffs this summer, but for now I wore it inside with my stretchiest pair of jeans and instantly felt happier.
The prettiest dress I’ve seen in awhile. This would work for so many occasions. Dressed up for a wedding, for a bridal or baby shower with wedges or more casually with a denim jacket and sneakers.
I wore this dress in Palm Springs a few weeks ago when our best friends got engaged. It’s such a cute mini with ruffles at the sleeves and hem. I went for “Palm Springs casual” with slides here but it’s also something that could be dressed up and worn to multiple occasions.
Another dress I absolutely love and can’t wait to wear out of my house. You have to see the back of this one… it criss-crosses and laces up in the prettiest way.
I wore this fun green midi to a friend’s birthday at a bar a few weeks ago. It was actually Jeff and my first time away from both kids since we had Wilder and I definitely enjoyed that glass of rose. Midi skirts have really been having a moment lately and I love that this one is a little different. The green is so fun for summer.
