How to Wear Dazzling Blue this Spring

While it might not feel like it up in Boston where I am, Spring is well on it’s way, just 10 days away. We just sprung our clocks forward, and shop windows are teasing us with the cutest Spring frocks. And even though the weather forecast tells me I have more wintery days ahead of me, I can’t help but start stocking up on Spring clothes.

Hello, Spring!

This Spring, I’m especially excited to sport anything and everything in Dazzling Blue – one of Pantone’s 10 Spring 2014 colors. So excited in fact, that I’ve teamed up with 9 other fabulous bloggers to show you how to rock this and the 9 other colors. If Dazzling Blue isn’t your color (but I’ve found it looks AMAZING on most people), you can skip on down to the end of this post and check out how my bloggy friends are rocking the other 9 colors. And while you’re at it, check out these 10 nail polishes that are perfect dupes for the 10 “it” colors of the season.

But back to the topic at hand – how to wear Dazzling Blue this Spring …

I have mixed feelings about Gap – I love Gap Fit clothes, but 90% of the time I strike out with their day-to-day wear. Still, I hold out hope and pop in every few months to see what’s new. When I popped in last month, I was ready to admit defeat when I stumbled upon the cutest dress in the back corner. Why anyone would put this baby in the corner is beyond me. I scooped it up, ran to the dressing room and jumped up and down (on the inside) when I saw how cute it looked on. It also didn’t hurt that I had to size down (I don’t hate you, Gap vanity sizing!).

And while I haven’t been able to wear it just yet – damn you, Polar Vortex! – I’ve been dreaming of all the ways I can wear this dress when the weather warms up a bit. Dressed up or down, this dress is going to be perfect for almost any occasion.
