Fashion Friday: Summer Dresses

#fashionfriday this week is all about simplicity and easy-breezy! 
Is there anything easier than a dress? NOPE. Don't think so. No need to worry about matching a top and a bottom. No need to button and zip the fly. No need to worry about a waistband either! It's a total win in my book which is why I have more dresses in my closet than any other item of clothing. Ain't no shame in my dress game. 


Everyone needs a t-shirt dress. Everyone. If you don't have one, go get one now and come back to thank me. Because you will. Old Navy has great ones but I'm a sucker for Jcrew and the little details they add to theirs, like this little ruffle on the sleeves. 

Outfit #2: DATE NIGHT

The dress. Y'all. This. Dress. I cannot even put into works my love for this dress. The popped collar. The seersucker. The fit and flare style. The pockets. The tie-waist bow. The list could go on and on. But I won't. I will say that last week while hitting up the outlets on our beach vacation (no, I did not buy anything for myself) the Vineyard Vines outlet had this dress in pink seersucker and only one and it was in my size. And it was $40. I stood there, totally tempted in purchasing it because I LOVE THIS DRESS so much. I did NOT give into temptation and left it on the rack. And believe me I have SERIOUS non-buyers remorse. I hope that you have a dress in your closet that makes you feel like a million bucks like this dress does for me. 

Outfit #3: BBQ or DAY DATE

Yes, I cheated. This is not a dress. It's a romper. But it's one of my go-to pieces for summer I couldn't NOT include it in this #fashionfriday edition. Everytime I wear it, at least one person comments on how bright I am but guess what? I'm bright both inside and out. So there. 

Outfit #4: NO REASON

I would wear this dress just about anywhere. Running errands with flip flops, out to dinner with Jacks, even to a summer wedding with heels and fun jewelry.  A basic chambray dress with a little twist - that ruffled high collar. No need to add anything to it, although I wear it in the fall with my class schoolboy navy blue blazer. This dress highlights a BIG fashion tip I like to follow: pick a classic piece with just a little fun twist to it. The ruffle collar is the fun twist to this classic chambray dress. 

Outfit #5: BEACH DAY

A perk of being short? A tunic that doubles as a dress. Yup. I admit it. Totally and completely. This tunic was one of my favorite StitchFix finds ever and I couldn't pass it up when it came in my box a solid 4 years ago. I mean, come on, seersucker, a deep v-neck, navy and red embroidery, it screams Trina Turk meets Tory Burch meets JCrew and then some!
