My schedule is packed this summer. From bridal showers to baby showers, office outings, and girls' night dinners, my usually spontaneous weekends are looking pretty booked. And while I'm excited for a memorable summer, picking outfits for these events can be a challenge. I want something memorable, but not too over-the-top (the only time you want to be the most memorably dressed person at a party is when you're the bride). In the past, I've shied away from dresses that felt too cloyingly sweet, afraid that they weren't suited for my age or style. Now, I'm rethinking that choice and bringing more of these dresses into my rotation, styled with touches that make them true to my style. In this case, I love how the heels are the focus of the outfit, and the dress is a complementary accessory. Is this my new daily uniform? Probably not, but I do have a new go-to look that takes seconds to throw together and get out my door.
Here are a few dresses I have in my cart already for this summer:
This investment dress will be perfect for any shower ($345)
The perfect dainty print and sleeve details ($148)
These flowers will be anything but sweet with strappy shoes ($92)
I'm obsessed with the ruffles and lace on this dress ($325)
A budget friendly mini dress with the cutest straps ($51)
