5 Spring Dresses For Every Occasion

March 29, 2021


Erin Schrader

Disclosure: Thank you to Nordstrom and ShopStyle for sponsoring today’s post. All products were selected, purchased and worn by yours truly.

I don’t know what it is, but I’m all about wearing dresses as often as I can this Spring! Maybe it was the whole ‘not having anything to dress up for for months’ thing, or maybe it was not wearing real pants for several months. Either way, dress me up, scotty, and see ya later pants! Whether it’s for running errands or heading out for a fancy event, you can find me rocking the dress on repeat this season, for all occasions.

Of course I turned to none other than Nordstrom for all my no-pants needs [although trust me they’ve got plenty of pants]. From free shipping and free returns to buy online pickup in-store, shopping online has never been as simple. It’s no secret that I’m a frequent Nordstrom shopper, so being a part of the Nordy Club gives me plenty of chances to earn Notes for future shopping trips, free alterations, early access to shopping events, and so much more! Want to see what dresses I’m loving? Right this way…

Casual Dresses

When your husband calls and says “Meet me for a quick day date!” or the girls want to get together for an impromptu night out, these two dresses are your BFFs. Simple enough to throw on and go with a pair of wedges or your favorite sandals!

A Bit Dressier

Not quite ‘running errand’ casual, not quite formal attire, this dress is the perfect in between! Nice and lightweight, a great crepe material, and bonus: three colors to choose from!
