Spring is finally here! I've been getting a bunch of requests for casual & special event dresses so I decided to do a little round up of my favorite dresses. As always, you can shop the looks by clicking on the images or links directly! Be sure to check out my IG story today for a few additional looks that are on major sale. 

Everyday Casual

A few weeks ago I did a try on haul from my latest Old Navy finds! I live in these dresses all summer long. They are so easy to throw on- dress up or dress down for a perfect everyday look.

Daytime Chic

These are a few of my favorite dresses that are perfect for a daytime affair: showers, graduations, parties, etc! 

Fancier Affairs

Fun fact: did you know that black tie affairs don't necessarily mean you need to wear a floor length gown? A dress that hits at or just below the knee can still be formal! It really all depends on the style and fabric, in my opinion. Accessories can also really help! 

All White Everything

As a bride to be, I definitely have an addition to LWD's this season but I feel like they are just such a classic look! I will definitely be re-wearing post-wedding (but definitely not to other people's weddings!)

As you may see, I've only selected a few brands here. I find myself staying loyal to brands when I find my perfect fit. When it comes to sizing, I get a bunch of questions so I thought I would let you know what I am in hopes of helping you find your fit! I love these brands because they are extremely consistent in their sizing- so I can always count on things fitting true to size.

Old Navy: Large
Eliza J: Size 14
Maggy London: Size 14
David's Bridal: Size 14

Friday Favorites: Size Inclusive Holiday Style

Happy Friday! Ready or not, the holiday season is here. I cannot believe it is December 1st! I am always excited for the holiday's, but this year especially! Last night on my Instagram Stories, I asked and you voted that you wanted to see some holiday style! It was a 50/50 split between holiday party looks and holiday date night looks so I thought I'd show you a little bit of both! It is very important to me to highlight brands that are SIZE INCLUSIVE- meaning they have a wide range of sizes for EVERY body!

The Dress Shop: Eliza J

If you are looking for a fabulous holiday party dress, you have to check out Eliza J dresses. I've selected a few of my favorites! I love how inclusive their sizing is- ranging from 0 to 16 and then plus sizes! I have quite a few of these dresses and I'm always so impressed with the quality and fit. You will not be disappointed. 

Get Your Party Pants On: Old Navy

Old Navy has been my go-to lately for all things! Their pants are also incredible. I love their fit and often times I even have to size down in their pants- which NEVER happens! Major props to Old Navy for no separating their regular & plus sizing. They offer 00 to 20 on the same product page! Another bonus: most of them are under $30! 

Cozy Coats: Asos

I am proud to say that I've inherited my love for coats from my mother- she has closets full of beautiful coats. ASOS has been an incredible retailer supporting a large range of sizes, check out these gorgeous coats. BEST PART: some of these are up to 30% off, no code needed!

Sparkle & Shine: BaubleBar

If you haven't already heard of BaubleBar- I'm about to change your life! I am constantly amazed by their fun, trendy, yet timeless pieces. What's a holiday season without a little holiday sparkle? These are a few of my favorite pieces right now! They make fabulous gifts too! BEST PART: Everything on their site is 25% until December 8th using code GIFT25

Cutie with a Bootie: DSW

I've been shopping at DSW since as long as I can remember! It is one of the only places that I can find size 11 shoes. They also carry wide width and wide calf styles. Cute boots are a must-have this season, especially with all of your holiday looks!  These are a few of my favorite styles this season.

The Final Touch: Lips from Sephora

Wrapping up this list with an essential- lip color! I always forget to put lip color on until I'm in the car and scrambling through my purse to find something. Lips complete the look and make me feel put together. Here are a few of my favorites this season! BEST PART: some lipsticks are up to 50% off this weekend, no code needed!

What are your favorites from this list? Would you like to see more of these round ups? Your feedback means everything to me! Hope this helps.
