Springtime Dressing Simplified

Since spring has officially arrived (and actually feels like it in many parts of the country), I thought I would once again share this image of Giovanna Battaglia, which I originally posted back in 2011. This is absolutely one of my all-time favorite looks of hers, and to me it is the epitome of 'Springtime Dressing Simplified': a pretty dress in an ultra-feminine silhouette paired with a coordinating handbag and sandals, minimal jewelry, and a fabulous pair of sunglasses...

Elegant. Understated. Effortless Glamour.

Get the Look:

The Sky's the Limit:

*Dress in white

On a Budget:

*Handbag in pink
*Sandals in pink

What are your thoughts on Giovanna's look? Do you love it as much as I do? Is this a look you might try to recreate for yourself this spring? Please do share...I always love to hear from you!


  1. I love the look even though i dont wear a lot of white.
    What i really like though are the shoes!

    1. Hi Ina! Oh yes, her shoes are gorgeous! I could absolutely see you in a pair like them, too! :)

  2. I remember this one, Melissa! I really like this look. I wear a lot of white, particularly in the summer months. I am looking at the J. Crew matellase dress right now, it seems like it would be perfect for my climate being cotton.

    I have the DVF Jori that you linked in the Get The Look, mine is navy. It is an amazing dress. I had no idea it came in white!

  3. Hi Desert Flower! I knew you would remember this one. I think this would be a perfect look for you, too. The J.Crew Matelassé dress is so pretty! Please let me know what you think of it once you get it.

    The DVF Jori dress is gorgeous! If the one from J.Crew doesn't work out, perhaps you can get the Jori in white instead. :)

  4. Melissa! So chic!!!! I just love it!!!

    1. Hi Wendy! incredibly chic! Giovanna is a woman that knows how to dress extremely well. :)
