Spring is slowly approaching in Chicago, and I couldn’t be happier! There are many reasons why I get excited about Spring: Think lighter clothes and tulips blooming everywhere! Spring is the season most people look forward to, like a promise of good things to come, or the Eva Mendes New Spring Collection for NY & Company.

I’ve been a fan of NY & Company for as long as I can remember. While NY & Company is known for wear-to-work clothing, the Eva Mendes Spring Collection gives you feminine dresses, as well as midi skirts with lots of fabulous prints! I’m wearing Eva’s Del Mar Strapless DressI love the exotic floral print which is one of Eva’s key motifs this season. It’s elegant and very feminine.

I wore this dress to a coffee date with my husband. We’ve been spending a lot of time in Evanston lately – it’s a beautiful town not too far from where we live. It has the most amazing coffee shops, and it’s the perfect city to simply walk around in without having to fight the crowds. Downtown Chicago will always be my favorite city but sometimes I crave more low-key adventures. It’s much more relaxing and it gives you the chance to simply watch the world go by while enjoying a cafe latte.

How about you? What excites you about Spring?

As always, I would love to hear from you and thanks so much for reading!

Much love.

    This is such a beautiful floral strapless dress Vanessa. It looks stunning on you. The print is absolutely gorgeous and the length is perfect. The first signs of spring always excite me too. Just thinking about ditching the layers for lighter clothing, the melting of snow and just the air of possibilities 🙂
    I hope you are feeling better beautiful!

    Low key adventures are the best!! The Eva Mendes New Spring collection has amazing pieces, I love your strapless dress, it matches the beauty of the flowers and you styled it perfectly with a white coat and nude shoes. You look flawless babe, such a vision!!

    The most thing that excites me about spring is the beautiful weather that seems to be warm and cool at the same time.

    What a gorgeous dress, Vanessa, and so springy! I love how perfectly the dress pairs with your yellow tulips! Can you believe every place I checked last weekend for tulips was sold out?! I guess everyone is ready for the spring weather! Also, I loved the yellow and teal pieces you posted on Instagram last night! Gorgeous!
