a) it's an entire outfit pretty much preassembled for you
b) they're airy, which is a necessity in this Las Cruces heat
c) they're cute and you can find a dress to flatter any body type!
here are some of my favorite summer dresses this year:
via modcloth. my favorite online site to window shop! i love the girlishness of this dress.
i can't remember where i found this, but the color and lace give this dress a soft, dreamy feel.
this one is from topshop. i love the polka dot/t-shirt dress combo.
these next 3 are from forever21, and are a little more in my price range.
i love the floral print and cutout back.
i'm really digging lace this year, and i love the softness of this dress as well.
i'm always drawn to cream and white clothing. this dress brings mind the 20s.
from pitaya. lace, again, and i absolutely love the combination of navy blue and bright yellow.
these 2 are from Betsey Johnson, which means i absolutely cannot afford them, but hey, a girl can dream, can't she?
the sweetness of the petit flower pattern paired with the edginess of the hook-eyelet closure is irresistible.
i love the simplicity and button-up front.
via Ruche. the lace peeking out at the bottom just kills me. navy blue is another color i always stray towards.
