3 Special Occasion Looks for Spring

With all of the events that tend to pop up this time of year, I wanted to share a few more special occasion outfits for different dress codes! I’m partnering with Express to share three petite-friendly options that cover the bases for your spring social calendar.

1. Satin Twist Wrap Dress

I first shared this one over the weekend and am so gad that several of you were able to grab it in your size! The color of this one is like an ivory with a hint of pale oyster grey and would be lovely for cocktail attire events or bride-to-be activities. I love the Grecian-inspired look with adjustable straps and twist front detail, which is conveniently placed over the tummy area. The silhouette and drape is so elegant that this dress doesn’t need much in terms of accessories.

3. Ruffled (faux) Wrap Dress

This is an affordable option for a longer length dress that would be appropriate for wedding guests at a wide range of venues! While I was personally drawn to this lilac shade for spring, this wrap dress does come in a few other colors. Note that while this is a “wrap dress” it is a faux wrap-front.

3. Two Piece Floral Set

This two piece set is so fun and would work well for more casual events like baby showers and graduation parties. I love that the top can pair with jeans or any white bottom for everyday wear but then pairs with the ruffled mini skirt to create the look of a very feminine dress. In addition to this green floral pattern, the set also comes in a pink print (top + skirt).

    Love all these and bought the Express Satin tie waist. It came really wrinkled, how did you take care of yours? Did you steam or iron?

      I use my handheld steamer on pretty much everything I buy online! Takes care of wrinkles quickly

    Love all three on you! Are any of these options breastfeeding-friendly?

      Thank you and yes, they each can be! The strapped dresses can slide off the shoulder easily and the smocked one also stretches to slide off.
