Have you tried putting on a pair of jeans after months of being in sweats and yoga pants? ROUGH. I might suggest forgetting pants this Spring and moving straight to airy floral dresses. I love the ease of dress. You can throw it on put your hair in a ponytail and you look instantly put together. Jeans never have that magic. ABSOLUTELY NEVER.
On a warm day this week I wore my new Target dress with my J.Crew trench to a doctor’s appointment. It seemed like a good reason to take a shower and take off the yoga pants. When I showed up at my daughter’s pick-up; friends literally didn’t recognize me. That is the power of a dress.
I rounded up a a few dresses I am eyeing and adding to my cart. They all have the block print feel like I am loving in home interior textiles too. I always gravitate towards prints and florals. And if it can be just as pretty as a curtain; I will probably be smitten.

I layered it over my Amazon dress and paired with Hunter boots for a walk down to the beach
We are lucky if we get a 50 degree day in March in New England. I immediately reached for a dress this morning because I’m so tired of wearing jeans. But it’s too cold for just a dress and I needed one more layer.
The quilted jacket I picked up from Target is the perfect Spring layer. I can wear it over all my summer floral dresses or even with jeans. It’s reversible and made of cotton. I like that it’s on the longer side in length and hits below my hips. Roll up the sleeves, layer over all the florals and add a floral silk scarf. Anytime I have worn the jacket and posted on Instagram I get a zillion DMs asking where I picked it up. It is super flattering.

So many of your bought this little quilted jacket from Target and it’s almost completely sold out. I added a few more options I found on ETSY and EBAY below. Tip: Use search terms like “vintage quilted jackets” “quilted block print jacket” and “vintage quilt vests”. There are so many good ones and really affordable too. I could list a zillion that I found and loved. Happy Hunting!
