I don't know why, but I feel a little guilty when I pull out a dress to wear. It's almost an instant outfit. Little work and it looks pulled together. Just throw on a few accessories and I am ready to go! On a recent shopping trip with my Mom, we found this little maxi at White House Black Market. I have been wearing it as much as possible ever since this super fun, rain infused photo shoot with our wonderful friend, Dawn Spicer! Here are three things I look for when purchasing summer dresses.
There is NO way you will ever find me in a wool dress in the middle of July. I'm sitting here sweating just thinking about it. I love breathable fabrics like cotton and linen. I even have several polyester dresses that are super lightweight and perfect for beating the heat.
Loose fitting is amazing in the summer. I love a-line, shifts, and maxi's. You have to give the breeze a little room to get in there and air out the girls… Just sayin.
Anyone can throw on a dress, but it's the details that will make you stand out. I love dresses with a little intrigue, like a fun color or pattern. My favorite part of this maxi is how the vertical lines draw your eyes up and down instead of across. I felt at least 6 inches taller than my usual 5'5″ in this thing!

Most of them on are SALE!
