Everyone needs a chambray dress! They’re the ultimate casual dress. Perfect for running errands, hitting the local smoothie or coffee shop, and great for a quick lunch with friends. Shirt dresses are also a total win. So when you combine the two, you’ve hit jackpot!

Another must have dress, a floral swing number. Another wonderful dress to throw on and go. Just a little more dressy than a chambray dress or shirt dress. I love the breezy look of a swing dress and feminine feel floral print provides.

This combo was my go to look last summer. This white structured dress was so easy to dress up or down. Can you tell I like it when a dress makes that easy? Everyone needs a great LWD for the summer season!

    I keep thinking to myself as I scroll through your post, “Love this one!” and then having to repeat that over and over again. I love them all but that white lace dress is my most fave of all!
