Olive Bell Sleeve Dress

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a good weekend! What do you think of the new Sweet & Sauer site design? I love it and I'm so excited with how it turned out. 

How cute is this dress? Not only do I love the color (olive seems to be a hot color lately - it does come in two other colors though), but I love that it's lightweight - perfect for this time of year as we transition from Spring to Summer. Also, it has cute bell sleeves which are totally trending right now, and I love the detail in the front. Definitely worth adding to your wardrobe (plus it's 50% off!) I decided to pair a bralette with this dress, but you could totally get away with not wearing one. Dresses like this are a wardrobe staple because they are easy to just throw on and dress up or down with the right shoes and accessories. 

Now to address a few things that I feel may come up in comments.... If you read my latest health post, you know that things aren't well in the cancer department (I'll do a full in-depth update really soon). First, due to the current state of my cancer, I have lost a lot of weight, so yes I'm aware how skinny my legs look and no I'm not promoting being this thin. It actually really sucks and I wish I could do more about it. Second, you may or may not notice a rash on my chest in these photos (and if you don't here, you definitely will in future photos) and that is a side effect of one of my cancer meds. I thought about trying to edit it out, but that wouldn't be authentic of me. I never want to become a blogger that over-edits or doesn't stay true to who they are.

That's all I have for now! Thanks for stopping by :)

I think it's safe to say that I love easy to throw on statement pieces. There are just too many times when I'm running late or feeling uninspired and just need something quick to throw on but still look cute. This dress totally falls in that category for me. It's simple and easy, and the long sleeves make it perfect for spring weather. Plus with the open back I feel like there's a lot of versatility and different ways you can wear this dress. Apparently the theme of this week is open backs for me, huh? I've always been a sucker for anything that has an open back, though. Spoiler for what I'll be wearing this summer perhaps? We shall see!

In other news - I have been getting SO many questions and compliments about these sunglasses and they're finally back in stock! Great opportunity to snag a pair!

Happy Monday, friends! Did you have a good weekend? On Friday I stopped by a fun happy hour hosted by my blogger pal Denver Darling for Swoozies. It was so great to see all my local blogger pals and catch up! 

Today I'm sharing a look I love for Spring and Summer. I love monochrome looks because they're so easy to throw on and allow you to have fun with accessories. All white is one of my FAVORITE things to wear in the warmer months because it's light and fresh. This cold shoulder top has so many pretty details and is so lightweight, it's perfect for these warmer temps we're finally getting, and can be paired with so many different things. Pairing with some simple jewelry and fun shoes keeps it look simple and easy. 

What easy looks are you loving this time of year?
