The best thing about warmer weather is the ability to wear flowy dresses, right? They are so easy, so comfortable and perfect for the season. Pleats were a big trend for Fall and Winter with leather pleated skirts and pleated tops but this dress has taken a new approach by continuing the trend and incorporating lighter fabrics suitable for Spring and Summer (not to mention the color is divine!).

The original dress does not come belted but because I have a wider frame, I felt that I needed something to define my waist. Dresses that flow away from the body can be tricky. It has to be the right cut and style otherwise it will appear as though your frame is wider than it actually is (and no one wants that!). Adding a skinny belt that does not overwhelm the outfit can be all you need to complete your look!

    Love the dress, pleats are very trendy. The colour looks great on you. Love that you added the skinny belt and I also adore your sandals.
