A Rainbow of Dresses all under $100

Spring is just around the corner and with that comes leprechaun, Easter bunnies, and oh yes, color in our wardrobes!  I love bright dresses, they make such a statement and make you stand out from the sea of navy, black and navy blue dresses at any occasion you attend.

Usually at the end of a rainbow you find a pot of gold, but in this blog you find colorful dresses, with shoes to match.  Word of caution for when you wear a statement color, keep the shoes simple and neutral with black, grey or nude heels/flats.

Below are various color options, all under $100! Click through the picture to see where all the dresses and shoes are from and happy shopping!


LBD’s to lust for

I turn to a LBD (little black dress) for any special occasion.  You can change its look with many accessories, belts, jewelry, scarfs; many looks for little dough.  These three are found under $75 and are the perfect canvas to dress up or down for your next wedding, dinner party, night out, or maybe even award show…hey if Julia Roberts can pull off the LBD at the Golden Globes , all the power to her!

The first is the trendy one shoulder from for $50 while the strapless black dress is from for $25 while this more conservative approach to a LBD from Macy’s is on sale for $70.  I found them for you so all you have to do is accessorize!

Ahoy Matey!

The nautical look seems to always come back in style this time of year.  I always know spring is around the corner when the navy blue stripes start popping up in all the magazines and on the celebs.  Even though I love this look, the only word of caution is to avoid looking like your hitting the high seas.

Pairing that striped tee or sweater with classic pieces make you look like a fashionista, not first mate.   Below, a favorite look of mine, I paired a striped sweater with wide leg dark wash jeans and gray pumps.  Add silver details in the necklace and watch and you have a look that walked out of the pages of InStlye, if I must say so myself.

Other alternative looks for the spring and summer could be cropped jeans with navy converse sneakers, white shorts or a pencil skirt with the gray pumps or denim shorts for a super casual look.  These are my trendy classic ideas but feel free to share your nautical tricks!
