Day Dresses.

I am having a love affair with casual dresses.  They are just so much easier to throw on  in my daily life than shorts.  (Plus, I am not the biggest fan of shorts to begin with.)  Even The Texan has noticed "is wearing dresses a thing now?"

I do have a few requirements though:  they must not be sheer (so many are!) and they can't require a special bra (as many do!) and they must be reasonably priced.  I'm not running around in $100+ jersey dress.

Here are a few of my favorites...

Gap Crewneck Dress, $59.50.  SO MAD I didn't not pick these up during their recent 25% off promo.  And now I refuse to shop any Gap brand without a coupon, so I will wait.  Surely another promo is just around the corner!

Felicity & Coco Tank Dresses, $68.  Loving this line at Nordstrom.  I can't decide between the color block navy one (the belt is super cheap, but I would just replace it with one of my own or none at all) or one of the vibrant colors. 

Do you have a favorite summer dress?

Making a Statement.

It should be pretty clear from this post and this post that I do love a statement necklace.  And in the summer, I am finding it to be a easy way to take my daily uniform of colorful tees to the next level.

These are the three that have been in heavy rotation so far this summer.  I especially love the yellow "bubble" necklace - I have worn her with every color in the rainbow, but I think pairing it with my true red linen top is the best combination so far.

What are you reaching for this summer?
