With spring here and summer just around the corner, it’s time to start transitioning that closet from heavy and wooly to light and airy. I don’t know about you, but I love to wear dresses in the summer. It’s just such an easy way to look like you made an effort to look cute on a hot day–one simple piece of clothing to take you from day to night. And now that I am a mom, I appreciate the ease of a summer dress that much more. You can change the look of a dress by adding a cute scarf, necklace, cardigan, or jacket, too. That way, you still don’t have on tons of layers, and you are looking totally fashionable.
I’m pretty short at just 5’1″, but I really love the look of a maxi dress. When I find a piece that I really love and fits well, I don’t hesitate to have the hem tailored to fit my height. Even if I find a dress that costs less than say fifty dollars, I’ll get it altered. Typically the alterations don’t cost more than ten dollars, and I know it will look like it was made just for me.
Here are a few looks that I like for this summer. I like to buy at least a couple of new dresses each year to refresh my wardrobe. I mean, do dresses really ever go out of style?
|Love the hem on this dress. Would work for me too since I’m petite.|
|Love a white maxi dress. This would be cute with a pair of flats and a denim jacket too.|
So what will you be wearing this summer? Do you like the look and ease of a dress? I think a dress works for pretty much any body type, too. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s go shopping!
