Is it just me or does it FINALLY feel like summer? You know that feeling where you just want to run inside, stand in front of the AC and only drink your coffee on ice. Hello heatwave! It’s been so hot in LA that I pretty much have retired my jeans and tee shirt uniform. Instead I’ve been wearing lots of easy, everyday dresses that are much more weather-appropriate. Over the last few weeks I’ve picked up some really cute summer dresses that are super affordable (under $100) and really great quality, so I decided to do a round up of my favorites for the season!
Finding the perfect mini dress isn’t always easy for me because I’m 5’3, but lately I’ve been getting lucky with some perfect fits. I’ve been gravitating towards neutral mini dresses because I can easily style them differently and rewear them many times.
If you follow me on IG then you probably can already tell how obsessed I am with slip dresses. I love how versatile they are and how you can wear them barefoot on the beach while on vacation or dress them up with heels in the city. I have quite a few in my closet right now and have mostly got them from & Other Stories, Zara and Shopbop. So many cute ones under $100 linked below.
NIGHT OUT DRESSES
There are certain qualities that make a night dress, well, a night out dress. Black, silky, shiny, glitzy or tight are all things that make us decide a dress is worthy for a fun night out. Full disclosure, my dress above is not under $100, but I did find some cute ones that match the vibe (like this one from Revolve.) I’m definitely loving the color and that I’ll even be able to style it with thigh high boots for the fall!
