Which style is your favorite? Which one of these dresses will you be wearing this season?


  1. The pastel hues are huge this year. I realize that I'm a sucker for coral... never knew that until this year.

  2. I love coral too! It goes surprisingly great with turquoise.

  3. Great finds! My problem with summer dresses is fabric. There are some fabrics that just make me miserable when I am hot. That makes it hard to shop online because I want to feel them first.

    1. Me too!! I hate dresses that have clingy fabric so I really have to try on a lot before I find ones that fit and feel just right. I usually have great luck at Old Navy for summer dresses!

  5. I love so many of these. I think my favorite is the fit and flare section pale green floral. I prefer a 40"-50" dress but the Maxi's are too long and all the rest are too short. If it hits right under my knees then I'm happy!

    1. I love all the fit and flares. Luckily I'm so short that they're long enough on me.

  6. I feel strangely compelled to break out the chess set. Or the checkers set. Either will do, what with that one item of apparel midway through...
