Can you believe it’s summer, y’all? It’s time to whip out those beach towels and swimmies, and your favorite summer dresses. Here in Texas it’s a good day if we are under 95 degrees, so I can assure you I pretty much live in my swimsuit or a light dress from now clear through September. I love summer brunch on the patio in a cute, flowy dress. Or shopping in a cute maxi that’s easy to run around in. And, it seems we always have so many weddings that vary in formality during the summer! I love a good casual wedding as much as I love a more formal attire wedding. (Have I ever mentioned before how much I just love weddings?) I have curated my favorite dresses for you, from casual summer days out and about to those summer weddings! Everything in the “Middle Ground” section below can easily be dressed up or down, depending on shoes, hair, and jewelry!
My top favorite dress brands right now happen to be two bloggers who own their own dress lines. If you’re looking for a classy dress, you cannot go wrong with Rachel Parcell or Gal Meets Glam! My dress featured in today’s post is a beautiful dress by Rachel Parcell. Check out the sleeves! I love simple elegance when purchasing a fancier dress with a higher price tag. The more simple, the more timeless. The blush is currently sold out online, but the black is still available! Who doesn’t need a beautiful LBD year-round?
Happy summer, friends! I hope it’s filled to the brim with watermelon, wet swim suits, and great friends. Well, and show-stopper dresses, of course.
