Hey babes! I’m so excited for todays post because 1) I love dresses and 2) I’ve been so busy recently I haven’t been able to blog as much as I’d like, but today I’m coming at you with a really fun post I hope you all love 🙂 When I was a little girl I LIVED in dresses. I mean, 90% of my baby/child pics you’ll find me sporting a dress of some kind. My mom always told me how I wanted to wear a dress every day, no matter what the weather. Over the years my fashion taste has expanded to more than dresses, but in the long run they still have my heart. Dresses are just fun, easy, comfy, and essential for when the weather is hot and sticky (which it has been the past few days here in NJ).
Today I’m sharing five of my favorite dresses to sport in this warm weather 🙂 All the dresses are affordable and all will be linked below so you can shop away! (Some dresses may not be available online so I will do my best to link similar options) 🙂 I had so much fun shooting these pics on the beach! My bf is such a great photographer, and I’m so lucky he loves to help me out with my blog! He’s the best 🙂 You’ll notice some pics are taken on a beautiful beach here in NJ, and some are fully styled with shoes and all! I did that because I wanted to show an entire outfit with shoes, and also just have some fun on the beach in these perfect summer dresses 🙂 I hope you guys enjoy this post and get some inspiration! You can shop this post and then we can be twins which would be really rad.
This dress is so fun, flowy, and can be dressed up or down which I LOVE. I probably will use it as a beach dress more than an outfit dress only because I have a super long torso so this dress is a bit short on me, but that doesn’t take away from it’s cuteness 🙂 I paired this dress with some adorable mules from UrbanOg which I am totally loving. They are so comfy and super chic!
Okay, can we talk about how freaking awesome the pattern on this dress is?? I wore this dress on Easter and received so many compliments. The stunning lace up detailing paired with the fun print makes this dress an essential for your wardrobe. For this look I was feeling a little more casual, so I paired the dress with some white Vans and I think they added a really cute touch 🙂 In the beach pics I’m sporting Quay Australia sunnies 🙂
As you guys have probably figured out by now if you’re an avid reader of my blog (and if you are you’re the best and if you’re new here you should totally subscribe 😉 that I drawn to baby pink. If it’s baby pink, I’m sold. When I saw this dress on Tobi.com I had all the heart eye emojis. It’s so adorable and the ruffle detail on the straps gives me life. I know I’m going to be living in this dress in the upcoming warmer months and I am so excited. This dress can definitely be dressed up for a date night, but for this look I decided to go with some basic slip on sandals 🙂
Primark: Red Floral OTS Dress
(exact dress not available online, so here’s something similar!)
I’m not usually one to wear red, but when I saw this dress in Primark I instantly knew I needed it in my life. It is such an essential for summer, and the perfect cover up/beach date outfit! I will say, this dress has absolutely no shape whatsoever so if you’re not into that than this dress might not be for you. However, I did link a super similar option since Primark doesn’t have online shopping 🙁 I recently bought these heeled mules from Target and I think that they go so well with this dress!
Pacsun: Floral Dress (similar)
This dress is definitely the most casual, and also one of the comfiest. I bought it from PacSun a few months ago so I can’t find it online anymore, but I linked a super similar option! Brandy Melville also has dresses that are pretty similar as well! Honestly any babydoll dress you have/find paired with some sneakers is a really effortless, yet adorable summer outfit. Adding sneakers with a dress personally makes me feel more functionable lol. When I have heels and a dress on I don’t feel like I can conquer the world in quite the same way.
Dresses are super fun and easy outfit choices, which is why I love them so much. I hope this post inspired you to wear more dresses and ways to style them!
