Flashback Spring Fashion: Dresses and Sandals.

I totally planned on giving myself my first pedicure for this year yesterday, and wearing sandals for the first time this year and then blog that outfit today for yesterday's Show Your Toes prompt for the Create 28 Spring Challenge. But life got in the way. Vivian has had a bad cold on and off for the last two months now. It was bad, then she improved, then it got worse and now she is ill again and has such a horrible, strong cough. I am currently taking stay-at-home mom and nurse duties to take care of her. My poor baby! =(

I still wanted to participate so the best I can do is look back into some of my Favorite Spring and Summer Looks of the past where I have styled a collection of my Dresses with Sandals whether high-heeled ones, kitten heels or flats. I hope you enjoy! Before I leave for today I invite you to join me tomorrow for a link-up I am co-hosting with Amanda and Jana for their "Creative Closet" on Tuesdays. Tomorrow's theme is "Pastel Me" so welcome by and link up any Pastels and Light Neutrals. Thank You. Have a Great Monday!

So, what do these 12 Outfits say about me? I CLEARLY Love Dresses and own way too many of them and I also love Colors (which you all knew, I guess). I stick to brands I know and that work for me. For example, 75% of my Dresses come from Express, The Limited, White House Black Market, Arden B., Old Navy, H&M, Loft and Bebe. Same goes for my Shoes: 75% of my Shoes come from Nine West, Il Cammino, Simple Shoes and Payless Shoe Source. Hey when it works, it works, right? Which 3 of these dozen looks/dresses are your favorites? I love 1, 3, 9, 10  and 12 as my Top 5. Want to see more Dresses and Sandals and other Fun Spring/Summer Shoes? Stay tuned for a special week of posts starting the first week of May, on May 4th to be exact. I am celebrating my birthday this year in Style!!

P.S. I am linking up with Amanda, Biana, Carylee + Gina, Chelsea, Ellen, Jen, Jess,   
And I am using these looks as my Spring Inspirations for sure so I am linking up with Anne and Shea, for tomorrow, as well.

  15. Wow, you really do have an amazing dress collection! My favorite is the hot pink from Express, and NOT just because of where it's from! It's just really cute and flattering! And it has pockets! Winning!

  24. Great idea for participating in Create28 when you couldn't yet wear sandals! Also, it's so fun to look back at your pictures through the years. Of all the adorable options, I think I like the simple black with black sandals the best. So chic!

  25. Love it when dress/sandal weather finally arrives - you've got a great collection!

  26. I see I'm not the only colour queen! Love the brightness of your dresses Ada. You have colouring a bit like mine which carries strong colours well. Love the turquoise and the purple ones the best!
