April is moving right along and we are excited for the fast days. Our temporary living has been going great. The boys are loving it all and handling the change like champs! I was a little worried at first but knew they would do great. We are also loving all the apartment amenities. I mean it is our first time to have a pool here.;) Now if the weather would warm up a tad bit more we could swim before moving out.
We’ve had a few dinners and party dates on the calendar, and I have a girls’ trip weekend coming soon, so I thought it would fun to share a few dresses for those special occasions. Some of the outfits are perfect for those summer occasions, spring weddings or cocktail parties. And not to worry…I still have some casual pieces and a cute lounge set to share as well.
For reference and fit tips I am 5’6 with a muscular build. I tend to wear smalls (size 4) in most items unless noted. (TTS = true to size)

Wedding Guest // Cocktail Party Options
Polka Dot Maxi – Like seen above I ordered the maxi in the small dot black option for a classic look. I wanted the option to style this one for day events but also could sneak it in for evening events as well. I love the flattering fit and elastic waist which draws you in. The belt is optional.
Fit tip: halter (around the neck) or strapless is needed for this one. True to size in a small.
Maxi dress : Another maxi I am absolutely loving, the color turned out to be a bright fun orange – vacation perfect. Not to worry it does come in black (seen in the collage at the beginning of this post) the fit is perfect and the dress is lined to right above the knees.
Fit tip: TTS – spaghetti straps, perfect for vacation, throw on a denim jacket for chilly days. Or style the black maxi with nude heels for a date night!
Amazon hat – a favorite Amazon find!
Navy floral dress – This one was an instant winner. I love the flowy fit and the length is perfect too. It comes in several prints and colors as well.
Fit tip: TTS
Black high waisted pants – These pants I have had in my closet for a year now and keep grabbing them. They would make the perfect office pant as well or calling my teachers….these are for you. I dressed them up with my black sleeveless top and nude heels for an evening look, wedding guest outfit or perfect cocktail party look. You choose!
Fit tip: I am wearing a small in these pants. TTS. They come in several colors and are very high waisted. The belt is removable.
Amazon skirt – love love love this one! You can easily dress it up or down and the length will work for so many! Check out all the fun prints too.
Fit tip: The skirt is a great addition to any closet. You can adjust where you like to wear it on your waist + styling it with a fitted top or bodysuit to dress it up or throw on a tee and sneakers to make it casual. TTS
Lounge / Casual Looks
Lounge set – Still on the comfy train in this cute stripe set. I love the soft stretchy fabric and comfortable fit. Great pajamas option or working from home in style. The top can easily be thrown on with denim and you are out the door or tuck it into a pair of black slacks like my pants from above and you’ve got another workplace outfit.
Fit tip: TTS
Mini floral dress: You guys have seen this style dress over the years. I own it in the midi/maxi version and now excited that they offer it in a shorter version. I love all the pretty prints it comes in too.
Fit tip: TTS I am wearing a small. This dress is known for running a tad snug in the bust. If you are larger up top you may want to size up in this one.
Other details: Amazon sandals TTS
Stripe blue midi : A comfortable midi dress new to Amazon! The buttons are fictional and the tie is built in so you can adjust at the waist as needed. Would make a great belly bump dress too!
Fit tip: TTS
Amazon resin earrings $14 – three colors – the perfect neutral earring + extremely light
Amazon handbag – I needed a spring evening bag that didn’t break the bank, so Amazon to the rescue. I love how butter soft this one is. It is perfect for all the essentials and then some. It also comes with a long strap.

Swim / Tanks
Other details: black shorts TTS
Navy tank – Tanks are my jam especially when the weather heats up here. This slinky style tank makes the perfect hot weather top – plus you could even layer it for the workplace. I am eyeing the black one too – thinking it would look classic and perfect for a date night with white denim.
Fit tip: TTS
Sweater tank – Another great sleeveless option is this soft and stretchy sweater tank. It comes in several colors and has the cutest bow tie back.
Fit tip: I am wearing a medium but have plenty of room in it, so exchanging for a small which is my true size.
ODDS & ENDS
Now that we are in our apartment I have ordered a few random things for the APT or the boys. The spot lights were killing us at night and every time I woke up in the middle of the night I thought it was 7am, so stick up black out shades to the rescue and they have worked great! Would be great for a temporary fix, under curtains or even for travel. Click here.
My oldest loves to read at night and now that he is sharing a bed with his brother, staying up to read has become hard. I ordered him this book light that has made it easy for him to read and not disturb others at night. Click here.
I also needed extra small kid masks for the boys as back ups and something to put in their backpacks and carry in the car. Grabbed this 50 pack.
I also just ordered these undies after a sweet reader recommended them to me! I love hearing your faves too.
I love finding odds and ends on Amazon! Do you have one that you’ve purchased lately? Also what are you shopping for this month?
