Summer dresses

14 May 2010

I would live in dresses all summer if I had enough of them. No shorts, no jeans, no capris — I would forgo them all for a rack of breezy cotton sundresses. I just ordered three to try from Victoria’s Secret and am waiting for them to come in to decide which to keep (probably just one with my budget, sadly…).


I have yet to try on a shirt dress that has fit me well (and I’ve probably tried on 15 at this point). Yet I keep trying. I have high hopes for this one, though.


Promise I won’t wear it as scandalously as this model!


SO CUTE! Just between you and me, I’m pinning my hopes on this little number.

Which is your favorite? And do you have a great source for reasonably priced summer frocks?

    Saaaame here on all accounts, sister! LOVE the last one the most I think! I have a gray wrap dress that I purchased on the cheap at Old Navy of all places that has served me well for many years. I keep hoping to find some good options at the Banana Republic outlet in Smithfield, too!

    I love Old Navy for dresses! I tried on a really cute one last week that looked like a top and bottom but was really a dress. Very cute, but a little bit see-through and the waist wasn't elasticized so it was hard to get on and off. Boo!

    I love dresses for summer, and these are all really cute! I agree, the third one is my favorite, too – it is just perfect! Best wishes on your search…I'm off to check out the selection at Old Navy!

    I've been buying more summer dresses than groceries this season! (Ok, that might be a slight exaggeration…) Which one did you keep?
