A reliable early spring work outfit that I default to on hurried mornings is printed dresses worn with tailored blazers. I reordered the Blossom Flare Dress (the fit is TTS; for those who know my size, I took 00P in this) from Ann Taylor during a recent sale and am enjoying how wearable it is.


Another pretty floral dress that I think is promising just went on sale at Bloomindale’s (promotion ends 04/17/16), for those looking for a more vibrant alternative.
