Happy Tuesday y’all! Well it has officially been spring for a week, but hasn’t felt like it much! Where did all the warm weather go? Currently day dreaming about warmer days and wearing short dresses. You know, like the warm days we had a few weeks ago! Until those warmer temps come back, I’ll look at these photos and pretend it’s as warm out as it was when I was wearing this casual knit dress

Come spring {and warmer temps} I am all about a dress + denim jacket combination {see here, here, and here}. The combination is just so easy and comfortable. Also, perfect for so many occasions. In today’s post, I’m wearing the comfiest casual knit dress and my go to denim jacket. This particular one is sold out but I’ve found a similar one under $50

What is your go to spring combination?

This particular casual knit dress is from Escapada Living, which you may remember from this recent post. It is one of those dresses you know you’ll wear a million times over the warmer months. You better believe I’ll be styling it with sneakers, wedges, and sandals for all types of occasions.

      Thanks Jessica! The ice cream was too good. It was thin mint ice cream and yep, had to have my rainbow sprinkles haha.

    This outfit is perfection! You can never go wrong with a denim jacket! Love the idea of the scarf on the bag as well!

    Your denim jacket fits so well with this spring dress. I’m actually still on the hunt for the perfect fitting denim jacket.

      Thank you Cheryl! This was a super lucky find at J.Crew factory late last year. I wish they still had it!
