The Perfect Summer Dress

altard state brown perforated wedges and the perfect summer dress

Happy Monday! It is starting to feel like Summer is here and with it comes the easy, throw on dress. It gets very hot and humid here in the South and I usually combat that with a flowy dress and sandals. I’ll dress it up for work or down for a weekend of errands but either way this combination is what I will be living in for the next few months.

I saw this dress on The Mint Julep Boutique website and knew I needed it for Summer. It is the perfect Summer dress! I love the light blue color and the lace detailing along the hem. It does run big and I definitely could have gone for an extra small if they had it. This would fit great for a lot of different body types because of the way the fabric lays. If you want it to show more shape you can throw on a simple belt and it will tuck in your waist beautifully.
