Summer Dresses

I finally had time to go shopping again, just in time to get ready for all those summer getaways and all those summer weddings coming up! I bought several that are super versatile and can easily go from the beach to a wedding depending on how you style them. Wearing a higher heel or strappier shoe is a no-fail way to make the outfit appropriate for dressier occasions.

First up, this flouncy handkerchief hem dress under $50. I also included my picks from the J.Crew promotion today and if you’re interested, you can see my fitting room pics on Instagram in my Stories.

This tiered dress is ultra feminine with so many great design features like the V-neck, peplum top which is really flattering to the waist, and of course the uneven hem. Plus it’s chiffon, a nice fabric that you can easily wear to something dressy or just out and about. It makes looking put together so easy.

Stepping away from dresses for a moment, I want to talk about my gold slides because I love them so much! They’re a must have for any season. The details are too cute and the style effortlessly up levels feminine outfits. They look super cute with jeans too. They’re currently on sale with sizes running out fast so hurry if you want them!

Next up, the J.Crew promotion today! I grabbed this super cute rust red faux wrap dress in regular 00, which fit in a midi-length on me. The promo is 25% off your entire order, plus free shipping, with code TODAYONLY. That’s for today only if that wasn’t clear from the promo code name:) So hopefully you’re reading this on June 7!

This dress runs a little bit big in the torso so if  you’re petite you might want to try the Petite size of this dress although last time I checked they were out of most of the petite sizes. The regular size might still work on you since the wrap style and self belt option lets you take some of the fabric.


Also from J.Crew, this tiny sweet pea floral print, sphagetti strap dress made it home with me too. I bought this one in regular sizing too and it works really well – no extra fabric and drapes really nicely. The design is really nice, feminine while still being simple, and works as a maxi for anyone around 5ft 2″. If you’re a petite it won’t be floor sweeping so it’s perfect if you want to show off your footwear. And who doesn’t.

I’m clearly obsessed with gold because I also grabbed this gold foil clutch. It looks so much cuter in person than online and it’s perfect for evening or even day if you’re like me and like a little bling. Gold is the perfect neutral and is so great for dressing up dark florals or simple navy/white summer outfits.

Last but not least, summer is the time to wear tees and there isn’t a summer when I don’t buy at least one new tee from J.Crew.  This bright yellow tee is so fabulous with white or paired with high-waisted jeans and slim shades.

Thanks for reading and happy Thursday! xo
