It’s almost Mother’s Day! A day simply dedicated to the woman who has been there with you through thick and thin. My mom is truly my best friend. Ever since I moved off to college, I can’t go more than 3 days without a phone call with my life guru. We have such similar personalities (and shoe sizes, thank God) that it’s clear to anyone who meets me that I am definitely my mother’s daughter. When I first made my move to New York, I remember being nervous about the transition. My mom encouraged me, but most importantly prayed for me every day. I know we’re thankful for moms every day of the year, but it’s nice to have a special event like Mother’s Day to remember everything they do for us.
If you’re from the south, your spring wedding calendar is probably full. I asked a few of my co-workers here in New York about how many weddings they had been to and it could easily be counted on one hand. I remember one year, I was invited to 7 weddings in the spring/summer season alone! 7! (If you can beat that, comment and let me know below!) Auburn is consistently ranked one of the most conservative campuses in the nation, so it’s no surprise we take “ring by spring” so seriously!
Apart from a nice spring wedding, the season always calls for a new dress for Easter. Of course, Christ isn’t up in heaven rating your outfits on a scale of 1-10 as you walk inside the sanctuary. However, I’ve always been raised to wear your Sunday best if you can! If we can buy cute dresses for prom or date night, I think one extra church dress wouldn’t kill ya. Right?
I was actually gifted this dress by Dressbarn! When I received the message from my friend Laura that it was on its way, I was so excited. I used to love shopping there with my mom when I was younger. Now, they have the perfect wardrobe for me as a young woman in the working world! In a collaboration with Ashley Graham, her new line Beyond shows whether you’re a size 2 or 22 that trendy fashion is for everyone! I also got a shoutout on her Instagram story so that DEFINITELY made my day!
The spring styles I’m currently adoring work perfectly for Easter and weddings! Floral, pastels, off the shoulder, and maxi dresses are just a few that you’ll see at every spring occasion this year! My picks are all under $200 with most of them being under $100! I’d love to know which trend or style is your favorite below.
