Hey y’all- hope your weekend was great! Mine included a fun game night with some Bible study friends, meeting my new baby cousin for the first time, and watching UNC beat Duke again! And although I didn’t love losing an hour of sleep with “Spring Forward,” I’m loving the extra hour of daylight. Now we just need some consistent spring weather to go along with it! Even though the weather might not feel like spring quite yet, I can get into the spring spirit thinking about my spring fashion faves. So, today I’m sharing my favorite items from the Lauren James Spring 2019 line. And if you like classic preppy style, you’ll love them too!

“Life Is Better in Seersucker”
Last month, Lauren James unveiled their new branding and logo. However, the Lauren James Spring 2019 line indicates that they are still holding true to their “life is better in seersucker” mantra. Nothing says preppy Southern style like seersucker, so it’s no shocker that several of my favorites from Lauren James Spring 2019 are seersucker. Here they are:
Hampton Palazzo Pant
I love these classic navy seersucker Palazzo pants, and the seersucker sash adds such a fun, girly touch. It’s removable too, so you can take it off to mix things up. Oh, and it has pockets too. Need I say more? These are on my wish list! Shop the Hampton Palazzo Pant here.
Livingston Stripe Dress
This style seersucker dress was the very first one that Lauren Stokes, Lauren James’ founder, designed, and she’s brought it back for Lauren James Spring 2019. It has the most adorable bow detail in the back, and comes in both navy and pink striped seersucker. This dress would be perfect for Easter, Kentucky Derby parties, a bridal shower, or a summer wedding. Shop the Livingston Dress here.
If you’re looking for a good spring jumpsuit, this navy seersucker one from Lauren James is absolutely darling. The halter ties into a bow in the back. I also love the white piping detail around the waist and at the neckline. Shop the Bridgette Jumpsuit here.
Dottie Ruffle Raincoat
I think this actually at the top of my wishlist among Lauren James Spring 2019 items. It’s a khaki colored raincoat with seersucker lining and ruffle detail on the pockets. However, I think this would make such great lightweight spring jacket even when it’s not raining. Shop the Dottie Ruffle Raincoat here.
This solid navy seersucker dress will definitely make a great staple in your closet this spring and summer. I feel like the solid seersucker is a bit dressier than the classic stripe seersucker, which means you could get away with wearing this dress to a cocktail party with heels or wedges. But you can also dress it down with sandals. In addition, I love the scallop hem. I actually have a solid navy seersucker Lauren James dress from last year, and it is one of the most versatile pieces in my spring/summer wardrobe. Shop the Landry Dress here.
The Bailey is a shift dress in seafoam green solid seersucker with white ruffle detail down the front. This would be another great option for Easter, Kentucky Derby parties, bridal showers, or weddings. I have a Lauren James dress that’s the same color and a very similar shape, but doesn’t have the ruffle detail. You can see how I styled it for a wedding last summer in this post. Shop the Bailey Dress here.
The Arden Dress
The Arden Dress is another seafoam green solid seersucker shift dress from Lauren James Spring 2019. This one has a high neckline with white trim around the neck and shoulders. Shop the Arden Dress here.
More Lauren James Spring 2019
Although seersucker steals the show in the Lauren James Spring 2019 line, there’s some great non-seersucker items in the collection.
This is almost identical to the Landry Dress, but in a non-seersucker cotton fabric. The perk of this is that you can wear it before Easter or after Labor Day. I’m a stickler on the seasonally appropriate guidelines for wearing seersucker! The solid navy is my favorite, but the Alaina comes in a blush pink lighthouse print as well. Shop the Alaina Dress here.
Natalie Side Button Skirt
I love this classic navy mini skirt with a scallop hem and buttons down the side. This also comes in the lighthouse print too. Shop the Natalie Skirt here.
This classic preppy shift dress features a v-neck and thick white trim at the neckline and down the middle. My favorite is the solid navy, but it comes in the lighthouse print as well. This dress would be great for a variety of spring and summer events too. Shop the Adrienne Dress here.
The dress I’m wearing in the picture above is a Lauren James seersucker dress from a previous season. You really can’t go wrong with a Lauren James seersucker dress. Also, this photo is actually from my first ever professional shoot for the blog last March. Fun fact- it was around 55 degrees during this shoot with Amelia Cassar Photography. For more pictures of how I styled this particular dress, check out this post.
Hope y’all enjoyed this round-up of my favorite items from Lauren James Spring 2019. Let me know if you end up buying and loving something!
