Even though I have found and ordered multiple pairs my perfect jeans, what I am really excited to add to my wardrobe at the moment are dresses. It never fails that 70+ degree weather (like NYC has seen the last few days) happens overnight, (despite the fact that *shock* it happens every. single. year..) and I realize two things:

                           1. I am not prepared for warmer weather.
                           2. I absolutely hate wearing jeans when it's even the slightest bit hot out.

To solve this little "dilemma," I am getting my shop on now and stocking up for the season, starting with a few dresses. Besides being comfortable and easy, I love how dresses are just so perfect for when my brain is fried from the heat, and the only thing I can think of is how hot it is. Nothing like having the guesswork taken care of for you!

Old Navy maxi & tee dress

A black maxi and t-shirt dress are my two absolute musts. I know, this time of year isn't exactly the weather to be wearing black, but I can't help it! I love how easy they are to throw on and how they make the perfect blank canvas for a great accessory like a hat or necklace. Best of all, they are super versatile, and I especially love them for travel as they are comfortable, yet stylish. 

LOFT maxi

When I first saw this printed maxi dress on Jessica of Get Jessed Up, I knew I had to have it. The prints! The colors! I absolutely lived in this printed maxi last summer, as it saw me through BBQ's, casual dinners, and vacation. I plan to do the same with this dress. 

Spontaneous plans seem to go hand in hand with the summer season, so being prepared for a more dressed up occasion is essential. Plus, I just really love these two dresses from Banana. #anyexcuse

Sanctuary lace dress
A lacy white dress is just one of those things that screams summer to me. While I find that most of them look like tablecloths, I love the texture and light feel of this dress from Macy's. Hopefully it doesn't disappoint! (Or I find one like it!)

What does your warm weather wardrobe look like? Do you also gravitate more towards dresses?


  1. blah I'm wearing jeans at work now and it's going to be 80- woof! That white dress is perfection!

    1. I love it too! And also wore jeans. And a silk top...

  2. Dresses for the win! I love how you only have to put on one item of clothing too, aka great for lazy dressers- which I think I am becoming. Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.
    I've also been wearing muscle tanks- you either love 'em or hate 'em- with a neon bandeau underneath and the 3 1/2 inch shorts from Old Navy. It's become my go-to especially since the weather is now 100 in PHX.


    p.s. What did you end up ordering from Old Navy?

    1. I am SO lazy come summer. BUT OMFG THE WEATHER?! UNREAL! I would be like, barely dressed in AC all the time. Despite the heat, your outfit sounds cute!

      I am actually just finalizing my shopping cart right now, because I want everything. Everything. EVERYTHING!

  3. ohhh, i adore that dropped waste on the white dress! gimme :)

    1. Right? I really do love it!

  4. the tee shirt dress looks so perfect! and oh the quest for the perfect white dress. I swear I do it every summer. maybe this will finally be the year?

    1. I am hoping the same with the white dress! Every. Single. Year! It just has to happen!
