I love summer because it’s perfectly divided into two precise halves: the half before the Fourth of July, and the half after the Fourth of July. Bookended by Memorial Day and Labor Day, there’s no other season that is as perfectly laid out to give you three chances to showcase new outfits and impress friends. Since we’re still in the first half of summer, there’s still plenty of time to pick out some new items for upcoming barbecues, parties, and weekends with friends. Here are some of our suggestions:
Floral Print Cap Sleeve Dress - at Nordstrom
Summer florals are always right – and this beautiful print dress is no exception. The season’s right for bright, fun prints. Perfect for picnics, barbecues, and just about any day spent under the sun, this is a dress you’ll want to wear all summer long. Added bonuses – it’s made in the USA and it’s completely machine washable. Find it here at Nordstrom.
Palm Flare Skirt - at Belk
With a flattering flare cut, this abstract print skirt will make you look and feel great at the same time. The cotton/silk blend is extremely comfortable, and the fact that it’s machine washable makes it a skirt that you can keep wearing over and over again with such ease. A true summer must! Find it at Belk here.
Contrast Print Ruffle Dress - at Bon Ton
Another great print dress, our contrast print ruffle dress screams “Summer!” The ditsy floral print is cute and feminine and the bright colors are ideal for the warm season. You’ll be turning heads in no time with this dress – the contrasting sleeves and hemline make sure you’re a standout! You can find it here at Bon Ton.
