My 5 Favorite Summer Dresses

I am so not a fashion blogger, but when this colorful J. Crew dress broke the internet (and by “broke the internet” I mean it was the most liked item I’ve ever shared on my blog!), I thought it would be fun to share a few other dresses I’ve been loving this summer. These dresses make it easy to be one, done, polished, and so comfortable to boot. [By the way, this pom-pom dress is now on final sale…it’s $59, marked down from $298. Such a great deal and it fits true to size (I’m wearing a size 6.)]

If you buy one dress for yourself this summer, it should be this blue striped Royal Shirt Dress from Tuckernuck!! It’s somehow roomy while incredibly flattering and totally wrinkle-free. Even after I washed and dried it, it needed almost no ironing before I wore it again. This dress comes in fourother colors and Tuckernuck seems to be adding more color ways in this style. Looks darling with sandals or sneakers and runs true to size (I’m wearing a small). THIS DRESS IS A MUST!! My cute personalized tote is from Bagging Rights.

You all know how I think J. Crew always gets it right and this striped T-Shirt Dress is proof. The length is super flattering, I love it with sneakers, and it’s currently 25% off. I’m wearing a medium.

Sticking with a relaxed summer vibe, this J. Crew Swingy Tiered Jersey Dress is everything. Coming in three colors, you might never wear anything else. It also doubles as a great swim coverup (or fishing attire…I actually wore it fishing last week!). This dress isn’t currently on sale, but it’s under $50.

I discovered this Lilly Pulitzer dress last March and so badly wanted to pull the trigger on it for spring break. But when our travel plans went into the pooper, so did buying the dress…until I needed something nice to wear for an event in June. Nothing says summer like Lilly and this dress has all of those Palm Beach feels. While this specific dress is sold out–this one, this one, and this one come pretty close.

I know there are so many heavy things weighing on everyone’s minds lately, but I thought it would be fun to take a little break and just talk dresses. Thanks for indulging me!
