Happy Monday! I thought we would start the week off with a little bit of my favorite summer style – DRESSES. If I could wear a dress every single day of the warmer months, I would. And by warmer months ( I live in Texas ) I mean like more than half the year haha.
I’m learning that it’s hard, though, to find cute, QUALITY dresses that don’t completely break the bank. Total summer bummer. That is until last week when my trusty Amazon addiction did me so well yet again!
I was actually searching for organic onesies for Chris’s sisters baby shower next weekend and ya know when you click on item Amazon shows other items frequently bought with that item or similar items? Well for some reason this dress popped up under similar items while I was looking at this super cute Olive You organic once.
I was immediately drawn to the fun coloring so I clicked on it on saw that it’s originally from SheIn. If you’ve never heard of Shein before I’m so glad I have the pleasure of introducing the two of you! It’s a clothing website that sells super duper inexpensive clothes that are ADORABLE. I never visit that website and don’t want to buy like 297495 things. The only iffy thing is that because the clothes are so inexpensive you run the risk of them not being of the greatest quality when they arrive on your doorstep. I’ve gotten very lucky and everything I’ve ordered from there has turned out to be awesome, but I’ve heard some horror stories as well. Basically, just gotta risk it I guess LOL.
This dress, though, is PERFECTION. You can get it from the actual site for $20, but I chose to order it for $21 from Amazon Prime because when ordering from their website things can take a few weeks to arrive, where as with Prime it arrives within a couple days.
PS Try to ignore the wrinkles…. currently don’t have an iron LOL.
Not only is it made with quality fabric, it isn’t see through what so ever, it’s super lightweight and breathable ( hi, Texas humidity ) and IT HAS POCKETS. I love that it’s color blocked, and the cut around the waist is super flattering!
Keep in mind that I am 5’10 so unfortunately every single dress I put on ( unless it’s a midi or a maxi ) looks exxxxtra short, so it probably won’t look as short as it does on me, on you. I also find that the coloring of this dress actually makes my skin look like it has a little color!
I paired it with nude sandals & a nude cross body bag and totally plan on wearing it to Chris’s sisters baby shower. After all, I did find it while searching for gifts for her :).
It would also be a cute dress for date night, brunch with your girlfriends, or even a comfy outfit paired with some cute patterned espadrilles for running errands.
Just an overall summer MUST HAVE in my opinion.
Do ya’ll love dresses as much as I do?! What are some quality, affordable brands you guys have discovered?
