There are certain colors that I love wearing, but don't seem to own a lot of. Olive is one of those. I love how it can be appropriate for all seasons, depending on how you style it. Lane Bryant sent me an dress recently and I'm happy to put the color in my wardrobe rotation! They're calling this a sage green, though my mind sees it more as olive. Either way – I love the shade.

This dress is super lightweight, and as you can tell from the photos – floaty and airy. It will be a great piece from spring into summer. The lace up front can be adjusted for as much (or as little) exposure as you want.
I added an old denim jacket to this sleeveless style on this breezy spring day. Lane Bryant sent me a gorgeous pearl embellished denim jacket, but when I tried it with my earrings, the lace up of the front, smocking, and pleats, it felt a little overwhelming. I've since been able to wear it with a black dress, so the embellishment can really be appreciated.
The espadrille wedges have me longing for summer weather and optimistic for sandals that actually fit. As a size 11W, it's not everyday that my feet easily slide into shoes like this. They are really stable, despite the nearly 4″ wedge.
Wanted to show you the dress without the jacket – ladies, don't feel like you have to cover up your arms if you don't want to!
