Affordable Dresses for Spring & Summer: Under $30 | Louella Reese

We may only be getting dressed for date night at home or to go pick up our favorite take out BUT getting dressed up is still fun to do. Maybe even more so now! Hopefully soon enough we’ll be able to get dressed up and head somewhere new or an old favorite spot. When that time comes you’ll probably want to wear something new, am I right? I know I will! So I ordered a few affordable dresses that are perfect to wear through the spring and summer seasons. A couple are from last summer but oh so good they deserved a shout out! Plus they’re both available in some new colors!

Sharing a little about the size, features, and style of each dress below. Plus what size I am wearing and the color options available. Be sure to comment on the post and let me know which one is you favorite!

Five affordable Dresses for Spring + Summer

Affordable Dresses for Spring & Summer: Under $30 | Louella Reese

Babydoll Swing Dress

This simple babydoll dress instantly grabbed my attention. Due to the fact that it looks like one of those dresses you want to reach for every day and end up wearing 100x over the season. Upon putting it on I discovered my initial thought was correct. It is lightweight, comfortable, a great length, and can easily be dressed up or down. Wear it with wedges as I am above or dress down with your favorite sneakers or simple sandals. Would be a great coverup come beach + pool season. 

It is a little see through in direct sunlight, I would recommend wearing a slip or shapewear shorts underneath. 

Size: Wearing a size small. 
Colors: army green, black, blue, burgundy, grey, pink, red, leopard

Spring and Summer Dresses on a Budget | Green Floral Mini Dress, Swing Dress | Louella Reese

Short Sleeve Tiered Mini Dress

Madly in love with this dress! Definitely my new favorite! If you follow me via instagram stories you’ve seen me wear this dress 3+ times already since receiving it in the mail. You cannot help but feel happy when wearing this dress! It begs to be twirled in and just has such a happy, playful feel about it. Fits really well, very comfortable, and super flattering. 

Size: Wearing a size small. 
Colors: blue floral, green floral, pink floral, yellow floral, navy floral, black leaf, white leaf and 19 solid colors

Amazon Dresses for Spring and Summer | Warm Weather Amazon Finds | Louella Reese

THE Amazon Nightgown/THE Amazon Mumu

Hands down my favorite of the bunch! I purchased this last summer (along with everyone else) and completely fell in love with it. Y’all did too apparently as it was the best seller of 2019. Due to the dress being so popular I wrote a full post review on it – including sizing, what to wear underneath, and how to style the dress. I’ll give you a little preview and say the dress fits a little snug across the chest and shoulders. My recommendation is to order you true size plus one size up and return the one that doesn’t work. For reference, I ended up with my true size. 

Size: Wearing a size small. 
Colors: available in 17+ color/pattern options – these change option so check back frequently if there’s a particular color you want

Polka Dot Midi Dress

This was a crowd favorite when I shared a try-on haul via instagram stories last week. I totally understand why! It is such a sweet, feminine dress. The perfect little number to wear to brunch, church, bridal showers, baby showers, and just about every other event on your spring + summer calendar…when that starts filling up again! 

Size: Wearing a size small. 
Colors: red, dark blue, black, yellow, green, teal, pink, solid blue, solid green, solid black 

The MOST Flattering, Affordable Maxi Dress for Spring and Summer | Louella Reese

Short Sleeve Floral Maxi Dress

I scooped this dress up after purchasing the Amazon Mumu. It was also a best seller of 2019 – for good reason! The blue pattern is absolutely beautiful and the style/fit couldn’t be more flattering or more perfect for summer vacations. The color is currently sold out but they have a newer blue and white option that is absolute perfection! If you’re in the market for a great warm weather maxi dress this under $30 option is an absolute must have in my opinion! Fits true to size and feels so light + breezy! 

Size: Wearing a size small. 
Colors: white, dark blue, green
