Move over LBD a new dress trend is in town for the spring…cue the LWD aka Little White Dress! Although I love wearing white year round, with spring comes plenty of special occasions like graduations, Mother’s Day, prom, banquets, weddings and more that all call for a nice simple dress that you can hopefully get more than one day’s wear out of. That was always my challenge. I needed a dress to wear for so many different occasions but I didn’t want it to be so dressy that I could only wear it once or twice. Well with this season’s ‘Little White Dress’ trend…there are plenty of options that can be re-worn year round!

Happy Fri-Yay Everyone! I am making this Friday a little sweeter with a brand NEW giveaway from ShopTheMint.com aka the online heaven where I scored this gorgeous white midi skirt which makes me feel like I am heading to a picnic in the Hamptons (hopefully heading out there this weekend before the season starts)<3
This week has been interesting to say the least and it is time for some new beginnings and new experiences which I am anxious to see. For one…with the gorgeous weather I am ready for some serious road trippin’ and ready to travel (can’t believe my Cali trip is just weeks away!) and…I am anxious for Lucky Fabb which is just two weeks where I get to reconnect with some of my favorite bloggers and gal pals (it’s been forever since I have gotten to see them all!)
Now while I am prepping for a bunch of spring into summer adventures, I want to help you prep too and what better way to do that than by giving you guys the chance to enter my ShopTheMint.com giveaway where you can enter to win a $50 gift card to their site (which has everything you need this season)!
The sun is shining, flowers are blooming and i can finally get back by the water to share some spring style. There is nothing I love more than being by the beach, the water and enjoying nice weather…which is exactly what I did all weekend. I did some spring shopping (did a little damage during the Lord & Taylor ‘Friends + Family Sale’ and got some preppy pieces from J.Crew…I can’t believe I haven’t shopped there more often) And I stocked up on new tech accessories for my car and my new iPhone which is coming in the mail tomorrow…can’t wait! I hear the camera quality on the 6 blows the 5 out of the water so I can’t wait to find out!
One of the other things I did this weekend was get outside and head to the beach to shoot this look. I have a thing for bomber jackets…I styled bomber jackets two different ways on the blog so far (here + here) and now here is one more…with a chic chiffon dress perfect for a spring date night or to go from the office to happy hour!
What a weekend! I am thrilled to say this is the last of my outfits that was shot with snow on the ground…in fact over the weekend, I was able to shoot tons of new spring looks at the beach…with sand in between my toes (check out my SnapChat to see more — MissyOnMadison) <3 I must say, I definitely have a love/hate relationship with New York/Long Island. I LOVE summers in the Hamptons, long drives out to Montauk and tanning by the pool…but then when winter rolls around I tend to find myself in a bit of a depression having to shovel myself out of feet of snow surrounding my house. It’s tough, it’s nuts and I may be a little cray cray…but for the next few months I will love New York…but come fall no guarantees 😉
And the moment we have all been waiting for…it’s Friday! I am excited to relax this weekend and try to get better from being sick the past two days (
ugh I am the worst sick patient ever). I have been so out of it the past two days and can’t wait to really just take a moment to catch up on e-mails and also hopefully see some of my friends this weekend…after commuting in during the week for work usually on the weekends I just crash and try to avoid going out but with an outfit this cute…I think I may have to have a girl’s night…what do ya think? 😉
