Summer Dress With A Sporty Twist

sporty summer dress
A while back I had asked you guys what you thought my style was and I was surprised by how many people said sporty. I shouldn’t have been surprised. When I see photos of me dressed up I often have on sneakers or joggers. I love adding a sporty twist to my outfits, perhaps it’s because of all the time I spend in arenas!

This summer I will continue my sporty style with summer dresses. I’ll wear my midi dresses with low tops and above the knee dresses with hightops. When it is really hot outside I can’t stand to wear sneakers, my feet need to breath! Of course I have my fair share of sandals that I adore but sneakers are somtimes the practical choice for walking around a lot, playing with my kids and giving off that sporty vibe.

The Breakdown:
The last time I wore this dress was 13 months ago to Memphis Fashion Week and I was 36 weeks pregnant with Noah. I love to wear fitted dresses during pregnancy to show off my bump. When you are past the 7 month mark and your belly is large, looser fitting clothes can swallow you all up. Since the last time I wore this dress I 40 pounds heavier I had no idea how it would fit. I actually never thought I’d wear it again because it is a very thin material and my body did not shrink back the way it did pre-pregnancy. Nothing a little Spanx can’t fix. I’m so glad I held on to this dress, I love the color and how easily it can be dressed up or down or even sporty.

Spring Style for Cold Weather

spring style for cold weather Daffodiles and tullips have come and gone, the sun is shining more, spring is officially here and….. it’s still cold. It can be hard to dress for spring when temperatures are below 60 degrees. You want to reach for that dark colored puffy coat, knitted scarf and boots but then again, it’s almost spring!

To dress for spring when it’s cold you can still wear your chunky sweaters but choose a bright or pastel color like this beautiful lilac sweater I’m wearing. Spring colors in thicker fabrics are the perfect thing to wear this time of year. I tend to shy away from denim in the spring and summer since its ususally warmer.

This leopard skirt can transition through all the seasons. In the fall I’d wear this skirt with a graphic tee and a leather jacket with booties. In the winter I’d wear this with a turtleneck and a blazer or a denim jacket and boots. This is my spring look with pumps and a bright colored sweater and for the summer, I’ll wear sandals and a knotted tee. I love a versatile item of clothing! spring style for cold weather spring style for cold weather  spring style for cold weatherspring style for cold weatherspring style for cold weatherspring style for cold weatherspring style for cold weatherspring style for cold weatherThe Breakdown:

How fun is this lilca sweater with this leopard skirt. These skirts are everywhere on the streets and can be worn with heels just as easily as it can be worn with sneakers. You actually could sub these heels in this outfit for white sneakers or for those chunky sneakers that are rising in popularity.
