Kayli Baker, a modest influencer known as The Nobby Gal.  She is a wife, mama of a sweet little girl, and lover of all things fashion!

As the winter chill begins to thaw and the first signs of spring emerge, it's time to start thinking about transitioning your wardrobe from heavy winter layers to lighter, more breathable fabrics. For many, this means swapping out bulky sweaters and coats for dresses that are perfect for the warmer weather ahead. But how do you make this transition without sacrificing style or modesty? We chatted with Kayli and asked her all things dresses, and can’t wait to share what she said with you!  

Spring Dress Transition
  1. Layer Up with a Cardigan or Jacket

One of the easiest ways to transition your dresses from winter to spring is by layering them with a cardigan or jacket. This not only adds an extra layer of warmth for those chilly spring mornings but also allows you to play with different textures and colors to create a unique look. Kayli often pairs her favorite dresses (Flora being one of them) with a crochet style cardigan or denim jacket for her favorite look..

  1. Make your dress versatile throughout the year!

One of Kayli's favorite ways to dress up her dresses is by adding a simple belt and a pair of heels. This instantly elevates the look and makes it perfect for a more formal setting like church. She loves how a belt can elevate her look easily and create a feminine silhouette, while heels add a touch of sophistication and elegance. However, Kayli also knows that dresses can be dressed down for a more casual and relaxed look. She often reaches for a simple dress like the Jane and pairs it with the Ariel jean jacket and a pair of tennis shoes. This not only adds an extra layer of warmth for those cooler spring days but also keeps the look casual and comfortable. She loves how a jean jacket adds a touch of edge and personality to her outfit, while tennis shoes keep it practical and easy to move around in while chasing after her toddler! 

Spring Dress Transition

  1. Step out of your comfort zone while bringing in your favorites

For those who are new to wearing dresses or looking for tips on how to incorporate them into their wardrobe, Kayli has a fantastic piece of advice. She suggests starting by shopping your own closet and using your favorite layering pieces as a foundation. This approach allows you to build off of items you already love and feel comfortable in, making the transition to wearing dresses much easier. Whether it's a cozy cardigan, a classic denim jacket, or a stylish belt, these layering pieces can help you create a variety of looks with your dresses. By starting with what you already have and love, you can gradually experiment with different styles and find what works best for you. Kayli still remembers the first dress she bought online.

  1. Don't Forget the Footwear

Last but not least, don't forget to choose the right footwear to complete your spring dress look. Kayli often opts for comfortable yet stylish options like ballet flats or loafers for a fresh and modest look. She also loves to add a pop of fun with textures to add a playful touch to her outfit.

Transitioning your dresses from winter to spring doesn't have to be difficult. With a few of these easy tips and tricks, you can effortlessly update your wardrobe for the warmer weather ahead while staying true to your modest style.
