Summer is still four days away, but with all the hot weather we have been having, it already feels like summer is here. I just love wearing dresses, and summer is the perfect time to do so. Dresses are definitely in style this year (as if they ever go out of style). I went to my daughter’s 5th grade graduation on Friday, and literally everyone, moms and daughters alike, was wearing a summer dress. I definitely didn’t miss the memo, as the dress I am wearing below was what I wore, and I received so many complements on it!

I am always a sucker for stripes, and this J. Crew Factory Faux Wrap dress is no exception. I love the pretty pastel blue color contrasting with the white stripes. And the ruffle hem adds such a flattering, feminine detail.

I tend to struggle with wrap dresses as I am always worrying about a wardrobe malfunction. I really like that this dress looks like a wrap dress, but functions much better. This dress runs true to size, as my typical size 0 fits perfectly.

I spotted this adorable floral fit and flare dress while shopping at Target one day. I really should shop at Target more often for clothes, as they have really upped their game when it comes to stylish clothes.

What I like most about this dress is the light and airy look of white, combined with the subtle floral detail. This dress is perfect for a day at the beach, or to wear on a hot summer date night.

To add style to the dress I decided to wear my favorite straw boater hat. And this straw circle bag really brings the outfit together.

And finally the third must-have dress for the summer season is this adorable yet classic gingham tie dress from J. Crew Factory. Gingham is one of those patters that truly is timeless, and this is the kind of dress you could wear season after season!

This dress is gingham perfection! I received so many complements when I wore it too. The simple design of the dress is flattering on anyone. The tie detail on the sleeves really complement the dress well. Again I am wearing a size 0 and this dress fits well.

This summer dress is so easy to dress up or dress down. Wear it with sandals as I have here for a fun summer date night or a casual lunch with friends.  Wear it to the office with a pretty pearl necklace and black heels for a sophisticated summer look.
