Having super speedy dinner recipes on hand is essential for anyone, but especially when you're eating keto-friendly meals.

In the midst of the bitter Colorado cold, all I've been dreaming about is the warmth of springtime. As it continues to snow, I'm beginning to think Punxsutawney Phil was lying to us all... but a girl can dream, right?

Spring trends come and go, but warm weather dresses are forever. Free People dresses in particular are the *perfect* wear for sunny spring because they're often flowy, floral, and downright fun. These 22 Free People dresses are made for Sunday morning farmer's markets, basking in the sun on a picnic, and of course, frolicking blissfully through a flower field.

Let these styles guide you to the most whimsical spring wardrobe!

Perfect Storm Midi

This top-rated Free People dress is, as the name suggests, absolutely perfect. In terms of comfort, the bodice is supremely stretchy, so you can be sure it's not restrictive or a total sensory nightmare when worn.

The lacy bottom half on the maxi skirt is springtime's best BFF, as it's very breathable. Style the square neck super easily with your fave necklace, some statement bracelets, and chunky boots!

free-est Vintage Summer Midi Dress

This flowy dress allows you to shine as bright as the sun! The tie-front and oversized folded sleeves recall vintage dress styles, so you can embrace some throwback fashion on your next tropical vacation, date night, or picnic. This Free People dress is secured by a series of basic buttons that runs down the front to keep things looking polished.

For Love & Lemons Casey Maxi Dress

How romantic! This Free People dress is finished with a frilly floral lace that lines the entire corseted bodice and sides of the maxi skirt. With cap sleeves, an open back, and a soft silk material, this lightweight dress toes the line between formalwear and loungewear. It feels just the right amount of sexy for those moments you want to feel, well, sexy!

free-est Cerise Mini

We're convinced that this white cotton frock is straight from heaven. Its lightweight feel is met by some contrasting structure within the waistline, providing the ideal balance between formal and casual.

This mini dress' hem lands a little bit above mid-thigh, so you can count on it to be breathable and breezy throughout the spring and summer seasons. The fabric bows that tie off the sleeves make this Free People pick all the more trendy.

Bardot Kiah Corset Mini Dress

If you want to dress like you're in a fairytale, this floral mini is the style for you. Puff sleeves! A corset bodice! A perfectly bodied skirt! All of the details in this Free People dress work together to create a super soft girl vibe.

Whether you wear it with ballet flats or boots, you'll feel all the spring feels when you don this pink-ish piece.

free-est Summer In Capri Midi

This insanely soft midi dress will accompany all of this season's outdoor parties, picnics, and farmer's market outings. The 100% cotton construction means this number is undoubtedly breathable. It secures in the back with a big, beautiful bow you'll want everyone to see.

Taking Sides Maxi

This dreamy maxi dress instantly guarantees that you'll get the princess treatment. The ruching details, the open back, the adjustable straps, and the tiered skirt make up one easy, breezy dress that you can throw on in a jiffy when it starts to warm up! Plus, you can shop it in 11 other colors if this bright green isn't your thing.

I personally love maxi dresses because it means pants are entirely out of the picture (amen!), and you don't have to worry about them accidentally hiking up like mini dresses often do.

Cypress Lace Maxi

This style is more modest, but still perfectly flirty for spring. The casual cap sleeves feel more feminine, and the midsection hugs your bod in all the right (flattering) places! If you're caught up on the material, this Free People dress boasts nothing but a super-soft fabrication – the outer layer is lacy, but it's met with a silky smooth slip underneath to keep you comfy.

This style would look extremely cute with some tall cowgirl boots and an oversized denim jacket!

Tate Mini

The best part about this Free People mini dress is that you can be a beach girl or a city girl in it! It's fairly breathable, making it a great pick for layering over a swimsuit after a day full of sunning. On the other hand, the t-shirt-inspired silhouette makes this style easy to pair with other garments for a complete, out-on-the-town look for springtime.

I'd adore wearing this dress with white socks, black loafers, and a black jacket for an easy yet elevated ensemble.

Bluebell Maxi

I think the mismatched pattern on this dress really speaks for itself, and I don't care if florals for spring are overrated! Flaunting a tiered construction that goes above and beyond in terms of quality, plus some adorable bows that sit stop the shoulders, I would live in this dress every single day.

Since the eye-catching colors on this piece make a statement alone, there's no need to overthink how to style it. A simple spring sandal + some of your fave jewelry will do! If it's chilly out, just throw a basic cardigan on, and you're stylishly set.

Stacy Midi Dress

C'mon, ruffles! This loose-fitting Free People dress evokes whimsy, magic, and springtime comfort. The contrasting fabrics on this dress (heavy-knit jersey up top, a gauzy cotton on the bottom) are a unique choice, and will definitely turn heads when you wear it. That skirt is 100% frolicking material.

Butterfly Babe Maxi Dress

This sweet maxi is the ultimate accompaniment to your spring date nights. Just look at that neckline!

A black dress always adds an air of mystery to your look, but the polka dots and lace trim make this style feel a tad more playful, which matches the energy of spring perfectly. Plus, this pick has a tasteful open back detail that's stylish but also practical for warmer temps.

Match with black ballet flats for a darling little outfit combo.

Make You Mine Mini

This Free People dress can take you from the office to happy hour in a cinch! The rounded collar and slightly puffed shoulders do lean on the formal side, but the printed floral pattern that runs along the sleeves and skirt undoubtedly make this pick more youthful.

It's made of 100% cotton, so your bod can breathe while wearing it. Plus, this dress isn't exactly form-fitting, so you can move very freely. This style def calls for some tall black boots and a statement belt as pictured!

Dottie Mini Dress

The spring season is time to take notes from French girl style, and this Free People dress hits the aesthetic right on the nail. It's dripping in coquettish details – bows left and right, lace trim following the necklace, and ruffled shoulders that all work to bring forth femme flair. I can just picture myself on a sunny cafe patio while wearing this dotted number, feeling cute AF.

It's Fate Midi Dress

This pick is springtime sunshine in a single dress. I love that the sleeves don't reach full-length nor short sleeve territory – the 3/4 length is just perfect and definitely gives this pick a very 90's vibe. The smocked waistline is subtly dropped to give shape to your silhouette, though you don't have to worry about a tight-fitting bottom – the lined skirt is wonderfully flowy and carefree.

Amber Denim Dress

As I mentioned before, where I live can be wildly unpredictable when it comes to cold temperatures (even in spring, sigh). That's why having long-sleeved dresses in my closet is so important! While this Free People dress provides more coverage on the arms, I enjoy the shorter skirt that makes the look more appealing for dates and nights out.

If you're on the lookout for a dress you can wear from season to season, this denim get-up is it. It wears well with anything, from boots to heels.

Onda Drop-Waist Tube Midi

Drop waist dresses are truly my weakness. They're just uber-romantic and undeniably flattering for any body! You'll instantly fall in love with how easy this piece is to wear on its own – or even underneath a t-shirt for more casual days. The top part of this Free People dress is super stretchy, molding to your figure, while the cotton midi-length skirt has more structure.

Wilder Days Mini Dress

This 100% cotton dress will come in handy for those... sweatier spring days. You know the ones! Since this tiered frock is swingy and oversized, you won't have to deal with the sensory overload that comes from wearing tighter clothes in the hot, hot heat. The thin straps on this baby are adjustable by tie, so you could totally make ample room for a sweet lacy bralette or a light baby tee to layer underneath.

Samson Mini

I am heavily eyeing this 70s inspired shift dress. The boho-style embroidery highlights floral motifs fit for spring, but I think it's a match for fall as well. Styled with a white long sleeve underneath, you'll be serving retro realness in no time.

The soft, yet thick cotton fabrication on this Free People dress speaks to its quality, and ensures that the style will last you + your wardrobe for years to come.

Emory Embroidered Midi Dress

Oversized dresses are ahh-mazing for feeling comfy around the clock, though you don't have to go basic with it if you don't want to. There are Free People dresses like this one that boast a cute color + pattern!

The super-soft cotton blend of this dress feels like a real dream to slip into, and will be your wardrobe's BFF for lazy spring weekends bopping around town.

Cooper Maxi Dress

Silk dresses slay no matter what time of year it is, and I am simply obsessed with the red wine color of this silky number. The low v-neck cut is definitely screaming "date night." The shiny sheen will undoubtedly make you stand out against a crowd.

Patches Of Denim Mini Dress

You've never had a denim dress like this before. Perhaps chevron ​is​ making a comeback! This style is as easy to wear on its own as it is with other layers. Plus, it can be styled more formally or for casual occasions.

Taylor Swift is known for many things: her incredible songwriting, record-breaking albums like 1989, Folklore, and Midnights, and the Easter eggs she's always leaving fans for her new albums. But the popstar is also known for her relationships (friendly reminder, women are more than their partners!). Considering there's a Taylor Swift song for every kind of love, heartbreak, and relationship, here's everything you need to know about Taylor Swift's former boyfriends (and her current romance with Kansas City Chiefs player Travis Kelce), from a Swiftie who's done the research.

What We Know About Taylor Swift And Travis Kelce's Relationship

Photo by JC Olivera/Getty Images

“Taylor and Travis have been quietly hanging out,” a source told The Messenger in September, while a source told ET that "Travis has been into Taylor for a while and definitely has a crush on her." However, another insider confirms that the pair aren't officially dating, and on September 20, Travis' brother Jason Kelce told the WIP Morning Show (via DailyMail), "I think things are going great and I think it's 100 percent true."

On September 24, Taylor was seen in a box with Travis Kelce's mom during the Chiefs game, and then left with Travis Kelce after the game (in which Travis scored an impressive touchdown *and* the Chiefs won 41-10). Travis wore a blue and white matching set (that also has 1989 in the name 👀), while Taylor wore a white tank and an unreleased Chiefs jacket (via taylorswiftstyled). Speaking of clothes, it's also notable to mention that after Taylor was spotted at the game, sales for Travis' jersey have jumped 400%!

In a September 27 interview with the New Heights podcast, Travis talks about the game, and said he "sure as hell enjoyed this weekend."

"I just thought it was awesome how everybody in the suite had nothing but great things to say about her," he says. "She looked amazing and everybody was talking about her in great light."

After spending some time with his mom in the Kelce box, Taylor joined Travis and they "just slid off in the getaway car at the end." Is that a Reputation (Taylor's Version) Easter egg we hear? Swifties have been predicting the rerecording would come after 1989 (Taylor's Version) since the Midnights era (as for us, we're hoping to get an announcement this fall). Check back here to see how this potential relationship unfolds!

Joe Jonas

Taylor Swift and Joe Jonas began dating in 2008. Taylor joined the Jonas Brothers during their Burnin' Up Tour and performed hits like "Should've Said No." The relationship is most remembered for the fact that Joe reportedly broke up with Taylor during a 25-second phone call. After the break up (and a few albums), the couple was able to become friends.

Taylor Swift's "Invisible String" (which was released after Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner had their first baby) includes the line, "Cold was the steel of my axe to grind // For the boys who broke my heart // Now I send their babies presents," solidifying that the duo had truly buried the hatchet.

Lucas Till

I've said it once and I'll say it again: Hannah Montana: The Movie is one of the greatest films of the 2000's, and this is just another reason why. The feature film stars Lucas as Miley/Hannah's love interest Travis (who we never saw again after the movie??), while Taylor performs "Crazier" during the characters' barn party.

Taylor Swift ended up featuring Lucas Till as the male lead in her "You Belong With Me" music video, which won her the VMA for Best Video by a Female Artist in 2009.

"We dated for a little bit. But, there was no friction because we were too nice," Taylor Swift's boyfriend told MTV in 2009. "Most relationships work out cause you get along and then you don't, and then you make up and it's passionate, and with us I really just liked her as a friend. That’s the only reason that didn't work out."

Relive the romance: Taylor Swift hasn't released any songs about Lucas Till, but feel free to watch the "You Belong With Me" music video as many times as you'd like. I know I do.

Taylor Lautner

Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner dated for a few months in 2009 after they met on the set of the rom-com Valentine's Day. Taylor Lautner presented Swift with the VMA for Best Video by a Female Artist in 2009, which went down in pop culture history when Kanye jumped onstage to interrupt Swift's acceptance speech.

“I’m just assuming that this whole thing was a practiced and rehearsed skit because why else would Kanye West be jumping up on the stage interrupting Taylor Swift?" the Twilight star said on a recent episode of his The Squeeze podcast. "It just didn’t make sense. And if you look back at it, I’m actually caught, like, laughing and giggling at him like, ‘I can’t hear them but this is probably really funny right now.’”

The two have become friends since the end of their relationship, and most recently, Taylor Lautner starred with Joey King in the music video for Taylor Swift's "I Can See You" from Speak Now (Taylor's Version). "He was a very positive force in my life when I was making the Speak Now album," Taylor Swift said at the July 7 Eras Tour show.

John Mayer

Even though Taylor Swift and John Mayer never publicly confirmed that they were dating, this has become one of Taylor's best-known relationships. The two collaborated on John's "Half of My Heart" single in 2009 before performing together a number of times before their relationship ended in 2010.

Taylor later released Speak Now, whose track "Dear John" is believed to be about the relationship. John also released a song that's widely thought to be about Taylor titled "Paper Doll," and spoke very candidly about the release + reception of "Dear John" in a 2012 interview with Rolling Stone.

“It made me feel terrible,” he says. “Because I didn’t deserve it. I’m pretty good at taking accountability now, and I never did anything to deserve that. It was a really lousy thing for her to do.”

Cory Monteith

While the late Glee star never publicly became one of Taylor Swift's boyfriends, the pair was photographed together on a few different occasions and fans have speculated since the release of Speak Now that the album's lead single "Mine" is about the actor.

"This is a situation where a guy that I just barely knew put his arm around me by the water, and I saw the entire relationship flash before my eyes, almost like a weird science-fiction movie," she told Yahoo Music, via MTV.

After the actor passed away, Taylor Swift tweeted (via Taste of Country, the tweet has since been deleted), "Speechless. And for the worst reason."

Adam Young

Okay, so Adam Young and Taylor Swift never *officially* dated, but they did send each other emails and eventually meet face-to-face — a meeting that Taylor was so excited about, she ended up writing "Enchanted," which Adam later covered.

Jake Gyllenhaal

One of Taylor Swift's most public relationships came in 2010 when she started dating movie star Jake Gyllenhaal. Throughout that fall, Taylor and Jake were seen grabbing brunch in New York City, spending Thanksgiving together, and visiting Nashville.

When December rolled around, Taylor celebrated her 21st birthday without Jake present, and a few days later, Jake celebrated his 30th birthday without Taylor. Their relationship ended shortly after, and Taylor released her album Red in 2012. The album is believed to be mostly about her relationship with Jake, and is filled to the *brim* with insight into her relationship (it also happens to be the perfect early fall album!)

Red also features her most beloved song "All Too Well," and in 2021, Taylor Swift released Red (Taylor's Version), which includes a 10-minute version of the song fans have been requesting for a decade, as well as a short film.

Harry Styles

Rumors about Taylor Swift and Harry Styles being a couple when Harry showed up to support Taylor during her X Factor performance rehearsal. They began having dates in Central Park, attending parties together, and wore matching paper airplane necklaces. They even went on a skiing trip (a trip that many fans believe included a snowmobile accident, which Taylor mentions in 1989's "Out Of The Woods").

"In writing songs about stuff like [relationships], I like tipping a hat to the time together," Harry Styles said during a year-long Rolling Stone interview. "You're celebrating the fact it was powerful and made you feel something, rather than 'this didn't work out, and that's bad.' And if you run into that person, maybe it's awkward, maybe you have to get drunk … but you shared something. Meeting someone new, sharing those experiences, it's the best s— ever."

The exes almost broke Twitter when they reunited at the 2021 Grammys (among other awards, Taylor won Best Album for Folklore and Harry won Best Pop Solo Performance for "Watermelon Sugar"), and again at the 2023 Grammys. Here's hoping Harry Styles is featured on 1989 (Taylor's Version)!

Calvin Harris

Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris were introduced by their mutual friend Ellie Goulding, and appeared on lots of different red carpets together, as well as in a variety of Instagram posts. They also collaborated on "This Is What You Came For," which was recorded by Rihanna.

When the pair broke up, Calvin ended up posting some tweets (which have since been deleted), saying "I figure if you're happy in your new relationship you should focus on that instead of trying to tear your ex bf down for something to do." Afterwards, he told British GQ, via People that "it was completely the wrong instinct...It's very difficult when something I consider so personal plays out very publicly. The aftermath of the relationship was way more heavily publicized than the relationship itself."

Tom Hiddleston

Right after Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris broke up, the popstar was linked to the English actor at the 2016 Met Gala. The couple then proceeded to send the internet into a tizzy when they were photographed holding hands and cuddling in Rhode Island. They introduced one another to their parents, attended concerts together, and traveled to places like Rome and Australia. They ended up breaking things off in September of 2017.

Joe Alwyn

The longest relationship between Taylor Swift and a boyfriend is rumored to have begun at the 2016 Met Gala (the song "Dress" mentions she met the song's subject when she had bleached hair and they had a buzzcut. Taylor had bleached hair and Joe had a buzzcut at the Gala that year), but were officially connected in 2017. They traveled around the world together, and Joe showed up to support Taylor Swift's Reputation tour.

The couple's early relationship began during a period where a lot of the public and the industry expressed that they were anti-Taylor Swift, and the singer basically disappeared. Taylor told The Guardian in 2019 that they preferred to keep things private, otherwise "people think it's up for discussion, and our relationship isn't up for discussion...If you and I were having a glass of wine right now, we'd be talking about it — but it's just that it goes out into the world."

While many fans speculated that Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn had gotten engaged, after six years of dating, the couple's split became publicized in the spring of 2023. But on November 29, Taylor's friend and collaborator Jack Antonoff posted an Instagram story confirming Taylor's hit song "You're Losing Me" was written in 2021. "A very special track from the Midnights vault that's finally streaming," the story says. "Written and recorded at home on 12/5/21."

That makes us look at a lot of the heart-wrenching songs on Evermore and Midnights in a whole new way because it suggests their relationships problems ran deeper and lasted longer than anyone realized. And on November 30, Taylor Swift's publicist Tree Paine made an ultra-rare statement on Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn's relationship after the infamous gossip blog Deuxmoi published an Instagram story claiming Taylor and Joe got married.

"Enough is enough with these fabricated lies about Taylor from Deuxmoi," Tree says on X. "There was NEVER a marriage or ceremony of ANY kind. This is an insane thing to post. It’s time for you to be held accountable for the pain and trauma you cause with posts like these."

Taylor announced her new album, The Tortured Poets Department, at the 2024 Grammys...and then internet was QUICK to make potential connections to Joe. In 2022, Joe told GQ that he was in a group chat with Paul Mescal and Andrew Scott called "The Tortured Man Club," based on their roles in their respective film and TV projects. Taylor also has tracks like "So Long, London" which in direct juxtaposition to "London Boy" off her Lover album — a song heavily tied to Joe. The through line is more than clear, TBH, but tricksy could be misleading us.

Regardless, a "source close to Joe" spoke up about the album to The Daily Mail. The source said that Joe has been quiet and respectful about the breakup, so it would be "shady" to "diss" him in the album. What does Taylor think about that? Well, during a performance "Dear Reader" in Tokyo — notably after Joe's alleged comments — she sang, "The restless tears of a cursed man." The original lyrics? "The desperate prayers of a cursed man." Now, I'm not saying she was calling Joe a crybaby...but I'm not NOT saying it. 😗

Joe Alwyn also just posted on Instagram for the first time since September 2023, and it looks like he might be referencing The Tortured Poets Department again. After Swifties have been joking that each of Taylor Swift's boyfriends need to get ready for the album that references them (meaning Joe would be getting ready for TTPD), he uploaded a carousel of images that includes mirror selfies, a childhood photo, and a meme from the UK The Office that says "Different drinks for different needs." If *I'm* expecting to need a drink after listening to TTPD, then you'll probably need one too Joe...

Relive the romance: "Delicate," "Lover," "Paper Rings," "Invisible String," "Snow on the Beach" (basically all of Reputation, Lover, Folklore, Evermore, and a good deal of Midnights).

Matty Healy

During the summer leg of the Eras Tour, Taylor Swift and Matty Healy both mouthed the words “This is about you. You know who you are. I love you.” into the camera during their respective shows. They were later spotted together in New York City, and Matty joined boygenius onstage to open for one of Taylor's concerts in Nashville. However, the pair ended things at the beginning of June.

"They were never boyfriend-girlfriend or exclusive and were always just having fun," a source tells People. "There is no drama, and who knows what could happen again. It was a good time and ran its course."
