I think we’ve covered the fact that I’m really into dresses this summer but I’d also like to applause all of the cute styles that are out there right now. It’s like the stars have aligned and what I’m looking for I’m actually finding when I go shopping. This never happens. Like when you get a gift card to somewhere and you can’t find anything you like, or you just want a pair of boyfriend jeans and none of them fit — except the exact opposite. All I find are cute dresses everywhere I go. I’m in a sea of dress possibilities this summer and it’s getting dangerous. I mean can’t even go grocery shopping without finding more cute dresses. (The only reason I grocery shop at Target, #letsbehonest.)  
I found this striped number at Gap; it had a show-down between this dress and this dress. But once I thought about the fact that stripes trump everything, this one claimed victory.

  1. Stunning dress, I initially thought it was a simple white dress. I love the subtle stripes and your necklace ties this look together.

  10. In Texas, it’s too hot NOT to live in dresses. This one is super cute, and I love the styling with that necklace.

  11. Definitely a good problem to have! Dangerous for the wallet, but I definitely would take that risk;) And this dress fits so well!

  26. Summer is fab for dress-finding. Snag them now whilst they’re in the shops! Before you know it all the autumn/winter gear will be pushing summer dresses to the back…. It’s a GREAT dress! I love the wedges with it – the little cutouts on the heel are lovely!
