This post is sponsored by Nordstrom, and I’m so happy to partner with them. I’ve been a devoted customer of Nordstrom for over 10 years. Their customer service, free shipping and returns, and generous return policy won me over, plus they carry some of my favorite brands like Reformation and Faithfull. Shop new arrivals here.

Does your style change quite a bit from winter to spring? Because mine sure does.
In winter, I’m sharp and chic. In the spring, I’m soft and natural.
But instead of trying to figure out “which one”, I’ve released the need to define my personal style at all.
It can all coexist. It can be a little bit of both.
After years of enjoying the capsule life (and the style introspection that comes with it), right now, I’m just experiencing my style in the present.
My guiding thought is: If I’m drawn to it right now, it is my style.
One thing I know I’m drawn to? Dresses. Midi dresses in particular. Don’t you love the high neck on this one?
Once it starts warming up, I suddenly have an aversion to wearing anything tight or fitted. Loose, easy clothes are all I want to wear right now, and this Reformation dress from Nordstrom is neither too fitted, nor too loose. It follows the form, but isn’t tight at all.
I’m also less and less interested in wearing a bra these days, and this dress makes going braless easy, thanks to the extra layer of fabric up top, and a stay-in-place fit. I moved every which way in this dress when I first tried it on, and I’m happy to report that not once did anything peek out.
For this everyday look, I paired it with these black slide sandals that I picked up last spring. If I wanted to go even more casual, I’d slip on a pair of white Veja sneakers. And if I needed to dress it up, I’d opt for these Jaggar heels. (They look just like the ByFar Tanya heels that are sweeping Instagram right now, at less than half of the price.)
To finish off the look, I added a pair of wood hoop earrings. I’m always up for natural texture when it comes to jewelry — ceramic has been a favorite of mine for a while, but wood! Stunning. They look designer, but are a steal at less than $20.
Overall, it’s a comfortable, pretty look that can easily transition from day to night with a simple shoe swap.

And there you have it!
I loved this chat-about-the-outfit post — felt like how I used to write when I first started this blog. :)
So tell me, are you in a season of defining your style or a season of releasing all definitions? Both are so valuable — what are you loving about your particular style season? Are midi dresses a staple in your spring closet too? Let’s keep chatting in the comments!
