I feel like every Summer I search for a couple of new casual dresses. Here in Texas it gets hot, and dresses are cool and comfy. Before kids, I didn't mind wearing a strapless bra, and could get away with shorter dresses. This time, my requirements were:
-long enough to be able to bend over and not give a free show
-casual enough for flip flops, able to dress up with wedges and cute jewelry
-able to wear either no bra or regular bra with straps. No strapless bras for this chick.
-material not too thin - no lumps or visible pantie lines
After as much shopping as my crazy schedule would allow, I bought these two:
This dress from Loft was 60% off, has a cute tribal print and the skirt is lined. The front has a high neck, which I didn't care for so guess what, I am wearing it backwards. I put that split part with the tie in front and left the ties loose. Problem solved!
This basic black one from Target is plain, but versatile. I can wear it to work on casual Friday with a cardigan, with flip flops, or with wedges for dinner on vacation. Plus, it was $19.
If you are in the market for some cute Summer dresses, I recommend both of these options!
