Hi y’all! I thought I would share with you the summer dresses that I have been living in lately. When summer comes around dresses are definitely my preference. They are super easy because you just throw on one item of clothing and you are done. They are also so versatile because, depending on your shoes and accessories, you can easily dress them up or down. Anytime I travel in the summer, especially when I am flying, you will find me wearing a maxi dress with a cardigan. This is my go-to travel attire because it is easy, comfortable and functional. Maxi dresses keep my legs covered so they don’t stick to plastic seats or get itchy from the fabric on the airplane seats and a cardigan is always a must have when traveling because you never know when somewhere is going to be chilly or you may just need to bunch it up and use it as a pillow.
1. Jcrew ruffle sleeve dress – sold out online but still available in stores (runs TTS and I am in an XS). I love striped dresses and the sleeves on this one give it that extra detail that made me have to buy it in spite of the fact that I already have 10 striped dresses in my closet.
outfit details: dress: jcrew (sold out online) // shoes: jack rogers // purse: tory burch // shawl: BCBG (old)
2. Vineyard Vines Run for the Roses dress (now on SUPER sale) – I absolutely adore this dress! I bought if for our house-warming/ derby party and reluctantly brought in on our trip to Florida for Memorial weekend. I was reluctant to bring it because it is something I love so much so I felt like I should be saving it for a special occasion like a wedding or dinner party. I ended up dressing it down with some Jack Rogers sandals and was so happy I decided to bring it on our trip. I need to remind myself to wear the things I love and that every day is special.
PS How cute is my Hubby here!!?

3. Black & White classic – This Anthropoligie dress is timeless and so classy and I have gotten so much use out of it. You can easily dress it up and wear it to a wedding or dress it down, like I have, to wear it on a date night. It is super flattering and comfortable and it even has pockets! It is also on super sale right now so it is a great time to add this timeless number to your closet.
4. You can never go wrong with Lilly – Lastly, is a Lilly shift dress that is an oldie but a goodie. Lilly dresses are wardrobe staples that will never fail you. The bright colors are fun for any occasion and their dresses are so flattering that you will feel great any time you wear one.
These are just a few of the dresses I have been living in these days. I hope y’all are having a great summer and I would love to hear what your summer wardrobe staples are.
