Whew! After a long, bitterly cold winter, I am happy to say that I have finally packed away all of my sweaters, long sleeved shirts, and coats. I think spring has finally sprung here in NE Ohio, so I am breaking out my sundresses, shorts and sandals! (It's about time!)
My preferred apparel in the warmer months would definitely have to be cute, feminine dresses. For one, they're super-easy...Just slip them on, add some accessories, and voila! You've got a great, pulled-together look. (And you don't have to dig through the laundry your husband never put away, desperately searching for clothing that matches, when that just happens to be his only household chore...But I digress...) I also love pairing skinny jeans or shorts with cute blouses or tank tops.
Even though I have a pretty large wardrobe, I have found myself in need of an update. This season is all about bright colors, hot prints, and of course, loads of feminine detail. Now if vibrant colors, ruffles and lace isn't a good enough reason to do some shopping, then I don't know what is!
Recently, I discovered a wonderful clothing shop called Bella Ella Boutique. They have tons of the hottest spring and summer styles, from dresses to tops to skinnies to accessories...They even have a nice section for curvier gals!
About Bella Ella Boutique :
Bella Ella Boutique is based in Utah, with 6 brick and mortar locations to serve their customers. Of course, for those who don't live in the state, they offer a fantastic online store. The folks at Bella Ella Boutique take great pride in offering all of the hottest trends at prices that won't break the bank.

Some of My Top Picks :
Here are just a few examples of the beautiful looks you can find at Bella Ella Boutique. I absolutely adore these outfits, and appreciate the fact that they're pretty and fun without being too revealing. After all, I am the mother of 3, so a little modesty goes a long way!
My Review of the Cream Lace Maxi Dress :
The awesome folks at Bella Ella Boutique sent me this adorable Delicate Cream Lace Maxi Dress for review. It arrived very quickly, and I was immediately impressed by the overall quality of the garment. The lace is very soft and feels amazing against the skin, and it's lightweight and breathable enough to wear on even the hottest summer days.
The top of the dress is tube-style, and very stretchy. Despite its light color and lacy appearance, it is not at all transparent throughout the top. The dress is actually lined to about knee-length, so there is no need to wear a slip with it.
I do have to point out that if you're very short like me, this dress may be a bit long. I plan to have it hemmed to the correct length for my 5'3" body. I can wear it fine with very, very high heels, but otherwise, I worry about snagging it. (What can I say? I am vertically challenged!) I will be sure to post a photo wearing the dress after I have the length altered a bit!
Overall, I am definitely impressed by the cute clothing at Bella Ella Boutique. They have so much to choose from, and it's all right on par with the latest styles. I also love the fact that many of their pieces can be mixed and matched for several different looks. They also have a great deals section where much of their inventory can be purchased for a mere $5.00! How cool is that?! So before you rush out to the malls to update your summer wardrobe, be sure to check out what's in stock at Bella Ella Boutique. Not only are their pieces beautiful and incredibly versatile, they also won't break the bank!
