A Splurge-worthy Dress for Spring - M Loves M @marmar

Good morning friends and happy Thursday! Today I have a splurge-worthy dress to share! I shot this outfit last month for a project with one of my absolute favorite brands, Kate Spade, and even though it was just for an Instagram post, I couldn’t resist sharing the photos here too because 1. I LOVE this dress, even if it is a little more pricey, and 2. I love how the photos turned out. Matthew hasn’t shot for me for awhile {if you don’t know, he took all my outfit photos until May 2014}, but I put him to the test for this one. It’s been fun shooting more things together, especially since it’s sometimes easier to plan because of Augustine and his schedule. Anyway, I hope you like this outfit! It’s super feminine and classic, just the way I like it! And I found two similar under $100 dress options that I’m sharing below!

This dress is so gorgeous with the pink stripes, the midi hem, and the ruffled sleeves. I think it would be a lovely choice for a summer wedding, an outdoor party, or even a fancy brunch with your favorite girls! I think I’d find a bunch of excuses to wear this one because it’s so pretty. It’s definitely a splurge-worthy dress for spring, especially for the right occasion! I did find some back-ups that are a little more affordable, in particular this one & this one! Both are under $100 and would be perfect for day-to-day wear, so you might even get more use out of them. Or if you just want to stock up on multiple pink striped dresses, I won’t judge!

Speaking of versatility, though, this floral bag surprisingly goes with a lot and I love what it adds to an outfit. You can wear it with other prints like shown here, or you can let it be the star of the show, or should I say the flower of the garden?! wink wink

And don’t get me started on these floral applique shoes?! Love! I’ve actually worn these the most lately. They are the perfect spring heel! Is that a little dramatic? I’m thinking it’s accurate though because they’ve been going with so much. I wore these shoes to church the other weekend with this dress and they totally made the outfit! Also, super cute with boyfriend jeans and a tee! Someone said they were thinking about getting them as wedding heel and I loooved that idea!

Have any of you shopped the big spring sale? Shared all my picks yesterday! Let me know if you get anything. I’m curious! Or is there anything you’re looking for in particular right now? Personally, I’m looking for a flattering pair of white denim {heard these are good but need to try them on!}, sneakers that aren’t too sporty, and cute tops that I can wash easily if they get dirty. Summer is coming and I have a feeling there are grass stains, popsicles, and sticky foods in my future!

Have a great day everyone!
