If you wear dresses in the summer, you don't have to coordinate tops and bottoms. Isn't that revolutionary?
To which you likely respond: "Yes, Jill, we already knew that. Like, everyone knows that."
I don't like dresses much (or never used to I should say) or shorts... because I don't really like my legs and they always seem to be pale and ugly. Enter my gym membership this year along with a pool membership and suddenly my legs are bare-able. Literally. Whew, so thank goodness for that because I just realized that dresses are the easiest outfit out there! Not that I didn't sorta kinda know that before, it just applies more personally now.
Yesterday I pulled out an adorable dress that I got in my early pregnancy with my second child for a warm weather trip... it was just flowy enough to cover my expanding waist line at the time. It wasn't an actual "maternity" dress... so it has been hanging out in the closet for some time. I whipped it out in desperation of nothing to wear yesterday and fell head over heels for dresses again!
So in the spirit of my new-found love of dresses... let's find some. On the cheap, shall we!?!?
This simple dress could be paired with heels and a jacket for the office or just flats and some fun earrings for a day at the beach or shopping. So cute and easy!
I just love the cool texture on this dress. I personally would pair it with some gladiators and a belt (so that it doesn't feel like a potato sack) and then call it good. The argyle pattern adds enough interest to go ultra simple.
Don't let the maxi style dress think that this is a "formal" dress by any means! Pair with a very simple pair of sandals and a sun-hat and this is ready for a day at the park or the farmers market.
And this doesn't really qualify as a day dress, but it was too gorgeous to not share... absolutely perfect for a summer wedding... ahhh. And it's less than $50. Does any one have a wedding they could invite me to so I can wear this... you can get back to me on that.
So are you in on the dress revolution?
