light blue striped summer dress

This dress instantly became a summer favorite. It incorporates all the things I love about a casual summer dress. It has a lightweight fabric, the color is soft, it comes with a belt to accentuate your figure and I love the top portion! The button down top sort of gives this dress a hint of polished which pairs wonderfully with the feminine and flowy bottom. The skirt portion has tons of volume that enhances the high and low design beautifully.

When it comes to off-duty style, besides the classic shirt dress I like to have something with lots of texture and something with prints. Easy to maintain and breathable fabrics are certainly a must.

What is your favorite design when it comes to casual summer dresses?

    This is such a lovely dress! I love the pale blue stripes for summer…one of my favorite summer patterns. And the high-low hem and full skirt is oh so feminine and pretty. Your nude heels are the perfect shoes for this dress. Absolutely gorgeous!
