Step Into Spring With These 6 Versatile Dresses: My Nordstrom Try-On Haul

I’m visiting friends in Southern California and happy to say it’s not raining; the sun is out! I’ve been taking long walks along the beach, soaking up the gorgeous scenery and enjoying all the coastal life has to offer. Of course, I couldn’t visit the area without stopping by the Fashion Valley Nordstrom, and on this trip, I had so much fun trying on dresses for different spring events. From weddings and wine tastings to vacations and just running around town, I found six fun styles I want to share with you. So, look below for the perfect dress.


I’m always looking for versatile pieces that can be worn for different occasions and seasons. And while shopping at Nordstrom, I found two stunning black dresses that are perfect to wear to a wedding or party. The gorgeous dress on the left is by Vince Camuto. It fits true to size and has stretch for extra comfort even though it is form-fitting. It is so comfortable and a show-stopper.  On the right is a dress that will make you feel beautiful and confident. Pair both dresses with heels, like the ones here, here or  here, and you’re ready for your next event. Also, I recommend wearing a Wacoal, Red Carpet Strapless Bra Under both dresses. 

Wedding Guest or Wine Tasting 

Are you looking for a fun and flirty dress perfect for a wedding, party, or wine tasting? Here are a couple of options. Whether you prefer a pretty floral print by Eliza J or a colorful tiered dress from Ulla Johnson, these dresses will turn heads and make you feel confident and beautiful.

Wine Tasting, Shower or Casual Wedding

I have two dresses that will make you look and feel amazing! If you’re a fan of the trending maxi-length dress and looking for an effortless style, you’ll want to try out this fun and flirty dress by Simkhai. Not only is it super comfortable, but it’s also incredibly flattering – even for petite frames. And with the right accessories, like a trendy platform or slide, you can be ready for vacation, wine tasting, or a party.

And on the right, a gorgeous boho-style dress by Misa will make you feel ready for any spring event. I wanted to try this dress because it checks many boxes. It has sleeves and excellent drape, plus it’s a trendy length, colorful but on a black background, and cinches at the waist. In addition, it is so versatile of a style that it would be a nice option for various occasions like vacations and wine tastings.I recommend wearing a shoe like here or here with the dresses.

Here are a few other dress options too.
