I’m currently sitting beneath dozens of oak trees just dripping with Spanish moss blowing in the wind. New Orleans sure is beautiful, and I could get used to this! I’m writing this post from City Park, a quintessential New Orleans spot, while sipping on chicory coffee and munching beignets from Morning Call, a 24 hour coffee & beignet joint that’s just as fabulous as the famous cafe du monde.
While I could write about New Orleans all day, and trust me I plan to, today’s post is not about Nola but about this fabulous floral dress! Nothing beats florals come springtime. And when it comes to pretty printed floral frocks, Reese Witherspoon’s Draper James takes the cake! I’ve been swooning over the spring collection and when I got an opportunity to style a piece from it this season, I basically flipped!
I’m sharing how I styled this look & also chatting about how a dress like this one will answer all of your outfit dilemmas when it comes to special occasions this time of year.
From Easter Sunday to a bridal shower to even a dinner date, Draper James’ Hilltop Garden Shirtdress can be styled so many different ways for a perfectly polished look. For an easy everyday look, I paired casual wedge sandals, a wicker crossbody with white statement earrings. I’m thinking more polished heels and a sleek clutch would take this number into the evening hours easily. And once again I’ve got to shout out to my new moms out there, because the button down front portion of this dress is GREAT for … you know, feeding your child! Something I now have to think about every time I get dressed for the day!

Now that my coffee is almost finished, my mom and Annie are starting to get antsy. “Hurry up and write our blog post so we can get a move on!” Ha! The three of us are headed to Oak Alley plantation this afternoon and I’m beyond excited. I love me some good Southern home tours! Be sure to follow along on Instagram and Insta-stories for a peek into our day in Nola. And as always, thanks for stopping by the blog!
