Blue Creek is Denver, Colorado’s premier urban health retreat, offering customers solace from their hectic lives in a serene environment outfitted with raw and organic materials. At Blue Creek, the goal is to bring the outdoors inside, which is seen and felt through the spa’s running creek, aspen trees and reclaimed and recycled furnishings.

This balanced philosophy is similarly applied to the decadent spa services offered at Blue Creek, with an intention to support both the body’s internal and external health. This is why the rustic-chic spa works to identify and heal the root causes of pain or illness in order to provide long-lasting and truly restorative treatments.

6 Spring Dresses For Every Occasion

With so many spring dresses, it’s hard to choose which one to rock, so we broke down the best for every occasion!

Spring Dress

After waiting all winter to don our favorite spring dresses, we aren’t ashamed to admit that we’ll be rocking them for any and every occasion. With so many variations of the classic spring dress, this concept is actually easily doable. Yet, in a sea of fun frocks picking the most versatile pieces can prove challenging. To solve this problem, we found the cutest spring dresses on the racks this season, that work for day, night and everything in between. Check out our favorite picks for this season and let us know which adorable dress will be your first purchase!

For Day

HM

This adorable and affordable dress pays homage to the military trend we saw hitting the Fashion Week runways. The cinched and belted waist is ultra-flattering on all figures, and the dainty buttons allow you to show some skin or cover up depending on where your day takes you.

Sleeveless Dress available at hm.com for $29.95

For Night

lulus

A flirty dress in pretty peach is perfect for night, and looks amazing against a spray tan glow. While the front may seem simple, heads will be turning as you saunter into the room thanks to a sexy geometric back that highlights the shoulder blades.

Ark & Co Island in the Sun Peach Dress available at lulus.com for $53

For Work

Anthropologie

What says spring more than a yellow floral print? Not much, in our opinion, but the oversized pattern contrasted against a black background is totally in vogue. The girly sleeves and appropriate length makes this dress perfect for work, but a pair of sexy stilettos can easily make it happy hour-ready.

Sunblossom Dress available at anthropologie.com for $178

For Weddings

Asos

Speaking of floral prints, we are absolutely obsessed with this watercolor version. The colors are oh so pretty, and the silhouette is equally flattering. While no one wants to take attention away from the bride, if you are single you may just leave the wedding in love.

Oasis Printed Skater Dress available at asos.com for $122.29

For Getaways

Jcrew

If you’re taking a weekend getaway it’s essential to look chic and feel comfortable. This lightweight material has a loose fit, so you won’t feel confined during a long drive. The best part about this spring dress is its on-trend tribal print that oozes a world traveler vibe.

Pink Geo Shirtdress available at jcrew.com for $198

For Brunch

Banana Republic

Spring and brunch are basically best friends. After all, what’s better than sipping some fruity drinks while you sit outside basking in the sun (wearing SPF, of course!). This denim dress is weekend casual, but the cuffed sleeves and adorable belt add just the right amount of laid-back luxury.

Chambray Shirtdress available at bananarepublic.com for $110
