During the summer time dresses are my absolute go-to. I live in them. They're just so easy to throw on, dress up or dress down. There's always an occasion to wear a dress. Some of my favorites, as you may have already noticed, are Gal Meets Glam dresses and J.crew. I loved this light blue floral wrap dress from J.Crew. It's such a flattering shape and comes in several other colors and patterns. I love this red and white one as well.
I paired it with my wrap sandals and my wicker Draper James purse for a causal day-time look. I wore it to a birthday party, but it could be worn to any bbq, hang out, or brunch. If it was a chillier day I would throw on a denim jacket. Shorts just aren't my thing. I would much rather grab a skirt or a dress to throw on. I just think they are more flattering on my body type. This dress will definitely be a staple in my wardrobe all summer long. I found a few more that I like here, here and here.
I love that this dress can easily transition from day to night as well. If you were going to wear it to a party at night or to dinner I would add a wrap like this yellow one. It is so soft, the pom-poms add a fun detail, and I love the mix of patterns between the floral and the stripes. I would also switch the shoes to a nicer shoe like a dressier sandal or maybe an espadrille wedge. I am coveting these Castaner espadrilles. I've heard they are extremely comfortable. Finally I would maybe switch up the purse. Don't get me wrong, I love a basket bag, but they can definitely make an outfit a bit more casual. The Draper James one is a tad more fancy than others, but I love a clutch for a night time look. For this look I chose to bring out some more yellow.
