Spring has officially arrived! Time to shed layers and show some skin. After spring break and hanging out in the sun, everyone comes back wanting to show off their tans. Forget parkas, boots and jeans; this is the perfect weather to wear dresses, skirts and shorts. But at the same time, we have to remember that it’s only spring, and even though summer is within sight, we must be conscious not to bare too much skin too soon. I spotted this Fashionista coming out of her apartment building wearing the perfect outfit to celebrate the first day of spring. It was girly, flirty and trendy. Wearing a light fabric dress and topping it with a more structured denim shirt, this Fashionista really knows how to kick of spring. This outfit definitely started spring on the right foot.

How To: To pull off this super flirty look, a flowy dress is a must. Keep this dress at a more conservative length to avoid fashion mishaps. Denim tops are so in this year. Denim-on-denim is no longer just considered the Canadian suit but is in fact very fashion-forward. You can layer a denim shirt with anything, so it’s definitely a must-have item for spring. By pairing this outfit with a pair of boat shoes and the right accessories, you will be on your way to looking super flirty while staying chic!
