Spring Is In The Air…Kinda, Sorta

Ok, so maybe not.  Realistically, we’ve just had a blizzard and despite the sun shining brightly the past two days, there is still a foot of snow across the street.  I like to pretend, however, that March 21st will be here soon — that we shall have 70 degree days before we know it; that I can break out all those floral patterns and wedged sandals.  I know I’m posting this somewhat early, but I really, really want spring to arrive.  I’m already excited for the ice creams to be eaten, the walks in the park to be had, the feet-dipping-in-the-lake.  I thought it appropriate to collect some of the dresses that, I for one, would love to wear this spring season.  These are some of the cutest out there for us larger ladies, so hopefully you guys will find something you fall in love with too!  Sorry for the excessive vintage-ness of most of these, but in case you haven’t already noticed, I often find myself pretending to live in the 20s and 60s.

I don’t want to hear any of the “I hate showing my legs or arms” nonsense.  Come on, ladies, haven’t we learned by now that our pudgy bits only make us that much more beautiful?  And remember, a lot of these dresses stretch, so don’t fret if the maximum size is a 2XL or an 18.  Experimenting with sizes is a must, as I’ve said before, because you never know what might look absolutely fabulous.
