Feelin' Fine and Fair in RubyClaire Boutique #Review + $25.00 GC #Giveaway


Are you ready for color? Every time I stepped out my door last week, I noticed little pops of color springing up all around me. I love winter style, because it's bold and rich, but spring style is so cheery and colorful, so I love it just as well. I'm ready to wear my pinks, blues, mint, purples, yellow, but I sort of have to ease into it. You see, I want it to be spring time, but I often have a hard time letting go of my winter wardrobe. Finding the right transition pieces to go from one season to another is pretty crucial, especially when it goes from 35 to 75 degrees in the span of one day (gotta love the South, right?). Along with being stylish, and seasonally appropriate, I need my clothing to be comfortable and mom-friendly. When I came across RubyClaire Boutique, I fell in love with their selection of chic boutique fashions!

RubyClaire Boutique was founded by husband and wife team, Kim & Norm Doyle. The Doyle's love to travel, and were excited to begin the RubyClaire adventure with their whole family! The couple previously owned a women's western boutique. The Doyle family is very involved in the business side of RubyClaire- from marketing and social media to buying, modeling, and photography! RubyClaire offers chic, affordable boutique fashions that are on trend, and fun to wear!

I was thrilled to connect with Julie at RubyClaire, and to be given the opportunity to select a RubyClaire style to feature on Mommy's Block Party. When I am shopping, I am always thinking about what's trendy, but want to make sure that what I'm wearing is age appropriate (because I don't want to look like I'm trying to dress like the college age girls, cute as their style is!), and I want my style to be my style, so I don't wind up looking like a carbon copy of someone else. I poked around on the RubyClaire website for a long time, mainly because I fell in love with just about everything I saw. One of the pieces, however, did truly jump out at me, so that's the one I went with!

My package from RubyClaire arrived within just a few days, in a mailer envelope, and I couldn't wait to rip that baby open and take a look at my new outfit!

My dress was packaged in a plastic sleeve, with a RubyClaire sticker on the front.

Before you see the whole dress laid out, just take a look at the beautiful design, here.

One of the reasons that I chose the beautiful Blue for You Dress from RubyClaire, is that it features a blue backdrop, but wow- it is so colorful and bright! The dress incorporates not only a gorgeous pattern, but bright, beautiful colors- orange, yellow, pink, blue, purple, black, and white! This dress is so incredibly versatile- the perfect style to wear with boots in the early spring, and then to wear with sandals in the late spring and summer!

Blue for You Dress Description

Gorgeous blues with lots of little accent colors make this top and absolute must!!! We love that you can make this a simple look by wearing her as a classy dress with heels. Or spice things up and add your favorite colored leggings to make those colors in the print pop, then just add some boots and head out for a fun winters day! You’ll be spreading the cheer by just showing up in this favorite tunic dress! The back cut out, with a simple string to hold the shoulders up, is a fun extra detail that will set her apart from the rest of your wardrobe!


I am 5'4 1/2", and am wearing a size Small.

How I wore it:
Blue for You Dress- RubyClaire
Leggings- Forever 21
Boots- Rampage
Scarf - Marshall's

Here's an even better look at the pops of color coming through this beautiful tunic dress. Plus, I love the back! It has a scoop to it, with a line across the top.

I wasn't necessarily planning on pairing leggings with the Blue for You Tunic Dress, but when I wore this, it was still very chilly, and the back was a little bit too short for my comfort. I felt that the scarf added an extra burst of bright color, and really tied the outfit together. I received so many compliments when I wore this dress, and several gals were asking where it came from, which I was happy to share. I was very comfortable in this dress, even more so with the leggings, and I plan on wearing this dress again soon! It's definitely a favorite of mine.

Chic, effortless style that's trendy, and age appropriate.

RubyClaire offers so many beautiful boutique styles of apparel and accessories. I have already earmarked a whole bunch of different styles, from dressy to casual, so I can amp up my spring wardrobe (which I seriously need to do, because my spring clothing is jealous of my winter clothing!). Take a look at some of the other RubyClaire styles I'm currently loving...

I'm looking forward to adding even more RubyClaire style to my spring and summer wardrobe. Along with their gorgeous dresses, I'd love to pick up a few tees, tanks, and sandals! My idea of casual is skinny jeans, a tee, a cardi or blazer, and cute shoes!
