Too often springtime dresses are reserved for floral prints and maxi cuts, but limiting your wardrobe to just these styles prevents you from truly blossoming your wardrobe to all of the fun unique styles that are available. One of our favorite non-traditional springtime dresses at the season comes in the form of scalloped trimmings. Feminine, flattering and just the slightest hint of a floral design, scalloped dresses are great for any event on your social calendar providing a fitted flare style that hugs your bust and mid waist before flaring out for a timeless classic cut.

Monday's Munchies: Celebrating National Chips & Dip Day!

If there’s one thing we here at PinkBlush have been loving lately (besides spring fashion) it’s food-related holidays. Who needs bikini season when there’s everything from national waffle day to chocolate and salted carmel appreciation hours? Food holidays help us feel festive and get into the soul food mood, bonding with friends, co-workers and loved ones over the same appreciation for delicious offerings. While March is well known for St. Patricks Day and all things green, we thought we’d share a less-appreciated yet equally yummy holiday, National Chips & Dip day!

Celebrated on March 23rd, we’re super excited about this super snacking holiday, and to get into the spirit, thought we’d share five must have chips & dip recipes that would be ideal for celebrating these amazing jubilee in perfect dipping harmony.

Who says a fancy cardigan can’t have a casual side? We’re in LOVE with how Medge from My Voguish Diaries styled our Black Beige Gold Printed Knit Open Cardigan. When paired with a basic grey tee, this look goes from upscale classic to casual chic, perfect for all occasions on your spring schedule. For styling an open cardigan, consider wearing more form-fitting apparel for the rest of your outfit to accentuate your frame and show off your curves in a modest way. Medge’s skinny jeans and nude heels do just the trick, pulling this look together for a stunning spring style!

A Day Dress

While it may be filled with rain, sleet and snow in certain parts of America, there are a multitude of gorgeous locations across the globe that have beautiful blue skies and 70 degree afternoons year round. For these exotic destinations, packing a fun, feminine day dress is key. Not only will they provide an effortlessly chic look but they take up almost zero space in your suitcase as well. One of our personal favorites is this floral open back dress (available in both Ivory and Black) but anything lightweight that doesn’t wrinkle easy can be a great choice as well! Perk: If you go to any warm-weather beach locations, this dress can easily double as a beach cover up! Who can say no to that?

Cute Chiffon, Lovely Lace

Sometimes, sightseeing calls for something a bit nicer than jeans and a tank. Because let’s be real, there’s nothing worse than visiting breathtaking historical locations just to pose in front of it with a basic outfit. Share the spotlight alongside all the incredible places on your itinerary with fun outfits that have a touch of lace and/or chiffon. These lightweight must-haves not only make for easy packing,  but they’re typically more breathable fabrics as well, great for reducing the amount of ‘shimmer’ you acquire during a walking tour or hike! Classic looks like this one, featuring our Beige Black Pink Printed Sheer Chiffon Blouse paired with our black lace shorts are great for warm days, while adding our navy blue and black lace accent cardigan can keep you stay comfortably cozy and chic at night!
