Easy Breezy Dresses

May 11, 2017

Good news for any of my self-proclaimed fashionably challenged friends: summer is almost here which makes getting dressed (and still looking styled) a whole lot easier. In the colder months, we play the layering game, and we are constantly trying to figure out which cardigan to put over which top and which scarf and how to tie it and don’t even get me started on the “unintentional” half-tucking. In the warmer months however, grab a breezy summer dress, cute sandals, a necklace (if you really want to pull it together) and done. When you only have to worry about ONE piece of clothing, sign us up, right? Nordstrom has tons of casual, everyday dresses that fit this bill.

I am always drawn to Free People because the details of their pieces are so on point. I decided to feature this dress for a few reasons: Embroidery, check. Lightweight and airy, check check. I also love the fact that this dress in particular is long sleeved. It’s perfect for running errands in the daytime and going in and out of air conditioned spaces, but you can also dress it up for date night when the evenings are a bit cooler. I’ve styled this two ways by swapping out the bags and shoes to show how you can wear this dress either way.
