DRESSING FOR SPRING // in collaboration with ANGELEYE

The sun has been shining recently (interrupted rudely by the real winter weather) and it's got me FULL ON excited for spring and summer.

ANGELEYE fashion kindly gifted me some gorgeous dresses which are perfect for this changing season and any season, for that matter. Dresses are something I try to incorporate more into my wardrobe and I particularly love them to have long sleeves at this time of year.

The first item to catch my eye is this floral maxi dress. I've been loving midi and maxi length skirts throughout autumn/winter and this trend is definitely coming all the way through 2019 with me too.

It's the perfect outfit to dress up or down. I pair mine, particularly on chillier days, with a knitted black jumper and some black, buckled boots for a grungier look.  Florals are a pretty versatile print and as this is predominantly black, I'm finding myself more than happy to reach for it as part of my work and play wardrobe - despite my usual aversion to colour!

The second number is this gorgeous polka dot dress, which is a much shorter length and something I'm definitely more inclined to wear when the temperatures get a bit higher. The navy blue with white spots makes it pretty much perfect for spring.

I actually love both dresses as they can be part of my weekday work wardrobe, however I can definitely see myself grabbing the polka dot dress for a day in the office followed by some dinner/drinks/activity in the evening. It's the epitome of a 'day-to-night' outfit. This would also look cute with some white high-tops for a spring walk, which is how I'll be wearing it next!

At the moment, my wardrobe does not include any sort of embellished dress thanks to a huge January declutter of old items, however it is safe to say that these items have resolved that for me. I've worn the floral dress SO many times already.

What do you prefer? Short or maxi length dress? Floral or polka dots? Let me know over on Instagram where you can find more fashion (and lifestyle) features.
