spring dress from karina

It’s finally that time of the year when we can start pulling out those lightweight spring dresses. This is one of my favorite designs from Karina Dresses. I appreciate the modest style on the top and the subtle boat neckline is super flattering for most body types. The addition of a belt is always a plus for me. It doesn’t just accentuate your waist but it also serves as a fun element in the whole look. You can play with tying the belt in the front or the back to figure out what’s the most flattering option for you.

The colors of the dress really pop; it’s like a spring awakening. For a weekend stroll around town, I decided to pair it with pink pumps and accessories to add more fun to the whole look, push the boundaries a little but still compliment the color palette of the dress. I think that this dress would work just as well for a work day with a blazer in light blue, blush or even black. Just be sure to color coordinate your accessories.

As always, thank you so much reading!

    This dress by Karina is truly beautiful. The pattern on it looks almost like a brocade. I cannot believe that pretty bag is from Charming Charlie. Love those patent pumps, too.
