Next up in Spring Dress Week is a fresh look at floral dresses. I adore wearing color all year long, but particularly love brighter florals in the spring time when the weather first begins to warm. The twenty five floral dresses below are anything but ordinary, ranging from classic cotton blend midis and tiered ruffle numbers to hand embroidered silk-organza gowns and romantic one-shoulder minis. The floral color spectrum ranges from sky blues and kelly greens  into warmer yellows, tangerine shades, primary reds and softer violet shades. Don’t forget to take a look at how I styled one of the below floral dresses in my newest outfit post here!

Kicking of Spring Dress Week on Edit & Etc. with a look at embellished dresses! ASOS has always been my go-to retailer for finding incredible embellished and embroidered pieces at affordable prices. One of my all time favorite embellished dresses remains this one from way back in 2014! I find embellished dresses (outside of the white options) are the perfect solution for spring wedding attire as they require minimal accessories and subtle shoes (that you most likely already own).

ASOS can often be a bit overwhelming, but I have found shopping by category on the site makes it so much easier. Most of these dresses came from the new ASOS EDITION category. ASOS WHITE is great for more minimal, yet edgy pieces. I also like shopping ‘prom dresses’ (sounds odd, but by searching prom dresses typically brings up more of the beautiful occasion wear they have on the site) as well as the label ‘Chi Chi London’ for year round fem options. If you have never shopped ASOS I would also say most items run a bit small. I am typically a 0 in J.Crew but a US size 4 in ASOS. Another ASOS trick – if something is sold out on the US site it is often still available on UK site!

See eight of my embellished picks below – many of which are under $200! And, don’t forget to check out my first Spring Dress Week outfit post here where I took yet another ASOS embellished beauty for a spin around sunny Charleston, South Carolina! You will also see this one on the blog shortly, so stay tuned!

As I’m heading south tomorrow to kick off all things spring on Atlantic-Pacific, I thought I would take a spin on the Amazon Fashion site and report back on a few key categories!

One – When it comes to spring dresses I’m a total sucker for ruffles and wraps. This gorgeous white printed dress immediately caught my eye. I also love a good silk jumpsuit for spring, and this sleeveless Rebecca Taylor number with its beautiful vine print hits the mark!

Two – Hats, hats, and hats! One of the more difficult aspects of being a hat lover is the travel component. Oftentimes they can be a nuisance to pack and annoying to carry around. This classic straw sunhat is adjustable and packable – problem solved! I also love a great super wide brimmed hat for beach and pool days, and this hat features a 5 inch wide brim and comes with a one year satisfaction guarantee.

Three – I’m loving cropped pant silhouettes for spring and Paige has a few great pairs available this season. This coated black pair features ruffled openings that can equally highlight your favorite flats or heels. No spring is complete without a white pair of denim, and this ankle crop is perfect back to your favorite sandal or espadrille.

Four – It’s no secret that I prefer one piece silhouettes. While I usually prefer a solid color in a more basic shape, this spring I’m feeling more for patterned prints with cutouts. As a gingham girl through and through, this suit with its double knotted front ties checks all the boxes. I’m also loving this muted pink palm print number with the bow front tie. The lack of shoulder straps makes it a good tanning partner!
