Best White Dresses for Summer

Happy Monday friends! Is anyone else in disbelief that is already the last week of June!? I was talking to Mike yesterday about how we spend so long waiting for summer, and once it is here it seems like we have all of this time ahead of us. Then we blink, and June is already over! We still have lots of fun to pack into the rest of summer, that is for sure! While I don’t follow the no white after labor day rule (seriously, who decided that was a thing!?), I will admit there is just something about a clean white dress against tan sunkissed skin! I decided to round up my best white dresses for summer below. Most of them are well below $50, and the few that are over $50 will be at or below that price with sales and promo codes! Happy shopping!

Best White Dresses For Summer

One of my go to places for dresses has definitely become Amazon! You can see other Amazon roundups here, here, and here! This dress is actually what my sister wore to her bridal shower, and it is as pretty in person as it looks online! And I have worn this dress,this one, and this one in different colors and both fit excellent!

I saw this dress at Old Navy and immediately fell in love. It also comes in a gorgeous pink colors! I love how the linen fabric dresses it down a bit and makes it feel more casual. And my other go-to for pretty dresses is Target-how cute is this button front style!? I found another button front option here that is a bit more expensive, but this retailer runs sales ALL of the time so be on the lookout for a deal!

I decided to throw in one style that isn’t solid white. The subtle polka dots are so gorgeous on this dress, and it is so elegant and classy! And the final dress is so cute and mixes lots of recent trends. Again, this one comes in above $50 but with today’s promo it comes very close to that pricepoint!


Tell me, what is your favorite color to wear during the summer months!? Isn’t there just something about those warm summer nights by the fire? 🙂


Tie Front Top and Tall Grass

Slowly but surely, we have been getting our yard up to speed. Trust me when I say that moving into a yard that hasn’t been landscaped is stressful. When that yard happens to be nearly 5 acres, your head starts to spin! But we are approaching a point where we finally feel like we have a decent YARD, so that next year we can really get to some landscaping. In the meantime, I love sneaking out for photos by our tall wild grass. It is not easy on the feet, but it sure is pretty! And now enough about grass and yard work, onto this tie front top!

I am such a sucker for tie tie front top trend that is going around. They are seriously SO flattering, and comfortable. Since there is a tie that also allows it to be loose in other areas, a tie front top makes you look fabulous while hiding any imperfections (or post taco belly bulges). And these high waisted jeans are the icing on the cake; they cover your belly and hold everything in while also being SO comfortable. This option is another favorite of mine; 

Top (similar, similar) // Bralette // Jeans // Bag (old, similar here) // Watch // Sunglasses

What is your favorite summer trend this year? I love seeing styles come back in that were around when we were kids! Of course, some of them (I am talking about YOU platform shoes) can stay in the 90s where we left them 😉

Patriotic Fashion: Fun and Festive Summer Looks

I have always loved dressing for the holidays. There just is nothing more fun than FEELING like the celebration. One of my favorite things about summer is that patriotic fashion is in style from Memorial Day all the way until Labor Day. These styles are simply too cute to limit to one holiday. You better believe my patriotic fashion will be getting use all season long. All of the items listed below can be found at Old Navy, which proves time and again why it is my favorite store. The prices on these items cannot be beat, and they are all SO cute!

Favorite Old Navy Finds

These cutoff shorts are the perfect item to throw on over your swimsuit bottoms, or to pair with a cute tank top at a summer barbeque. For days spent by the pool, how cute are these patriotic slides!? And we all know that days spent outside and at the pool mean our hair isn’t getting done. So, a cute hat is an absolute must! And despite the heat we feel during the days, summer nights (especially in the Midwest) can still cool down. A cute hoodie or this fun ombre sweatshirt are perfect for hanging out around the bonfire. And while casual looks are my favorite during the summer months, you can class up patriotic fashion too! This gingham blouse would be so cute with the cutoff shorts I mentioned, and this swing dress wraps up patriotic colors in such a fun way!
