Whether you are heading to a wedding, going out for drinks or heading into work, a dress is a great summer staple.

I always am attracted to bright colors and fun prints in the warmer months because it really makes your tan stand out and can even make your day a little brighter. I am more of a flowy and short dress lover  as well as a maxi dress girl. I have a hard time finding body con dresses that I love and also feel comfortable in! (3 kids have definitely changed my body! lol). I keep finding myself going towards lace, floral, tie dye and striped dresses.

In order to go from day to a night look I reccomend changing your shoes and some accesories. I really love the long tie dye max below and would pair it with a fun floppy hat during the day or even wear it as a cover up on the beach. Then trade in the flats for some strappy brown heels and add a long gold and bronze necklace to add a little bling, and you're set.

The BCBG striped maxi dress above it my favorite tho. It is so versatile and is dressy enough to wear to a wedding but casual enough to wear it for a sunday brunch with flats. It's  pricey but I think it's a piece you can wear for many many seasons.
