Casual Spring Dresses – How To Restyle One Dress Three Ways

one dress three ways pinteresting plans

Hi friends!! Are you feeling like Spring is coming?   With all the Spring clothes coming out I’m hoping the temperatures will catch up soon.   We planned a last minute trip down to Florida next week so I’ve been gathering up some warm weather gear and trying to keep my packing light.    I shared this tee shirt dress on my Instagram and Facebook pages and you guys were so responsive to the various ways to style it.    I wanted to make sure I shared some casual Spring dresses and how you can wear and rewear them here on the blog where they won’t get lost.

How To Restyle Your Casual Spring Dresses

I love this casual tee shirt dress and it’s such a steal right now!    For sizing info and more dress options scroll to the bottom of this post!

The Athleisure Look:

I am often running errands with and without my kids.   Sneakers with a dress used to make me think of gals getting in their exercise on their lunch break, but now it’s a fashion statement.    If you don’t own cute sneakers – what are you waiting for?   I have separate gym sneakers and fashion sneakers for different purposes.

For Your Next Lunch Date:

Adding a vest or scarf really dresses up a plain dress and makes the outfit stand out with very little effort.

Casual Weekend Party Attire:

We go to lots of kid birthday parties.  I’m always looking for something easy and comfortable that looks a bit more polished.   I love this utility jacket (I have XS) so much I could do a post about restyling that piece as well if you’re interested.

For Size Reference

Here I am “modeling” the various styles.   Not quite as chic as the photos above but REAL.    Well, not really real – that tan is all fake!!!!    If you’re interested, I recently reviewed some sunless tanners in this post.
