Nothing says SPRING like a pretty floral dress.
They're all the rage this season and I love them because you can wear them on their own if you're rushed or the weather's particularly warm -- but you can also accessorize them in unexpected ways to add a little extra punch to your look.
The trick is knowing how to do it right.
