It’s already been a busy week! Blogging interviews, prepping for a collegiate presentation, brand meetings, blog posts, try-ons, and getting ready for some of Justin’s family to come in this weekend. There’s so much going on that I had to schedule out the next three days by the hour lol. But I’m not complaining! I’m overjoyed things here at Pardon Muah HQ are flourishing and continuing to grow. 

I feel so funny publishing all these warm weather posts while there is still snow on the ground, but now is THE time to buy for Spring, and even summer. Plus, I feel like I’m channeling 70-degree temps every time I share shorts and sundresses. This incredible striped midi olive green stunner would be perfect for Easter and could even be worn to multiple Spring occasions. It’s a different shape and length from what I’m used to, but I love branching out sometimes… and it’s SO comfy!

My dress is from a local boutique called Punch Boutique – they sell some of the most beautiful pieces! And I love sharing them because one, they are so wonderful to work with, and two, you can actually shop their items online, via Instagram DM, or by calling on the phone. So if you aren’t local, it’s okay! You can also follow them @punch_boutique – they share new arrivals and packages almost every single day so you can call or dm and snag stuff right away. I’ll probably stop by the store soon to share some additional items via IG stories!

The brand of this darling dress makes some of the prettiest and unique pieces. AND their price point is really reasonable for designer quality items. It will definitely be my go-to from now on when I go to Punch. Since the dress is quite long on my short stature, I paired it with a tall wedge to create a nice, tall illusion – stilts would work too haha! These particular wedges are a splurge but they are SO comfortable and super lightweight which was a pleasant surprise. 

My bag is one of the most practical pieces I own. It’s made of an incredibly supple leather and goes with literally everything. It’s been my go-to for several years now and well worth the money because I’ve yet to buy a neutral crossbody I reach for near as much. My tortoise sunnies are also designer, but as I said about many of the other items in this post, they are well worth it because I wear them 98% of the time. Okay, maybe 99% of the time lol. 

Since I feel like the dress in this post is Easter-inspired, and the holiday is right around the corner, I linked lots of other midi dresses below in trendy Spring prints and appropriate styles for a day spent with family & friends. 

Have a very happy Wednesday!
