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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚ 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) πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚ 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.

Tobi: Emilie Shift Dress

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 πŸ™‚ I paired this dress with some adorable mules from UrbanOg which I am totally loving. They are so comfy and super chic!

Tobi: Destiny Awaits Shift Dress

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 πŸ™‚ In the beach pics I’m sporting Quay Australia sunnies πŸ™‚

Tobi: Ottis Blouson Skater Dress

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 πŸ˜‰ 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 πŸ™‚

Primark: Red Floral OTS Dress

Β (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 πŸ™ 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!

Spring is FINALLY here! Which means that a lot of spring shopping is to be done πŸ™‚ I prefer to shop online because there’s just something so exciting about getting packages! I also found that there are a lot of awesome online stores that aren’t available to shop at in person! If you’re like me and love online shopping, here are a few of my fave stores that are also super affordable!! 🌷🌞🌸

Brandy Melville $3-80 : Brandy is a store that I have loved shopping at for years now. I love that their clothes are super soft and really nice quality. Every piece of clothing is so comfortable, and most of their pieces are basics so they can be paired with a bunch of different outfits! The only downside is that most of Brandy’s pieces are one size only which usually fits size X-Small/Small. I fit into the tops, but their jeans and non-stretchy bottoms are not made for girls with booties like myself.Β πŸ˜‚Β However, if you are a size 0-2 you should fit into their bottoms well! Brandy has specific locations, none of which are near me unfortunately. PacSun carries some of Brandy’s products so if you have one near you you should definitely check it out!

A’GACI $1.99-79.99: So I’ve be high-key stalking this website for weeks now. I recently discovered it and I’ve been obsessed. I haven’t purchased anything yet because there are so many cute pieces I can’t decide what I want! I will absolutely be having a shopping spree from this store very soon and when I do you can expect a haul/review! I love that A’GACI keeps up with the latest trends, but also stays at a very affordable price range! The clothes seem to be good quality and I can’t wait to order a few things!

Princess Polly $14.70-320.00: Princess Polly has made a huge splash recently. So many bloggers and YouTubers alike have been raving about this Australian boutique and I am jumping right onto that bandwagon. Princess Polly can get a little pricy, but their sale section is everything. Their new arrivals and other clothes are pretty reasonably priced, but it’s not a place I would recommend going on a huge spree unless you have the dough for it! Nevertheless the clothes are absolutely adorable and I’m so excited to get a few pieces here and there πŸ™‚

MakeMeChic $8.50-68.00: MakeMeChic is an online wholesale store that offers really affordable and trendy clothes, shoes and accessories! I have not purchased anything from this store, but they have a lot of really cute items and the prices are unbeatable!

SheIn (overall suuuuper affordable): SheIn is another wholesale website that a lot of bloggers and YouTubers rave about. I have yet to order anything from their site, but if you’re in the market for some new, trendy spring clothes this is the place to go! Everything on the site is insanely affordable, which also means that the quality may be lacking for some items so make sure you check the reviews before purchasing! πŸ™‚

I hope this post has inspired you to do some spring shopping the affordable way πŸ™‚ Also if you download Honey into your browser it automatically finds coupons and deals for the site you’re on to save you even more money! How awesome is that?? I’m so excited to do some spring shopping myself and share my findings with you guys! Until next time, happy shopping! Let me know you’re fave affordable stores in the comments! I’m always interested to learn about new places πŸ™‚
