Recently, I have been getting a lot of inquiries on how to find summer dresses that you can wear in the day that transition into night. Lets face it, we are busy women. Somedays, we are running around like chickens with our heads cut off. We simply don’t have the time to think about two outfits in one day, let alone one.
It is important to think about items in our wardrobe that will take us from am to pm. This type of piece is ideal. This is a look that would take to me to a playdate with the kids, to work, to running errands or a lunch date.
Adding accessories to any outfit is like icing on a cake. It allows you to take your look to the next level, by pairing simple items like a belt, a little bling (swarovski crystal earrings), a wedge and a clutch.
This look is instantly transformed into evening wear. By the time dinner rolls around, you are ready for girls night out and I don’t know about you, but I am in need of one badly!!! LOL
I’m always on the hunt for a good casual dress. Effortless, comfortable and fun – you can just throw them on and you’re out the door. For me, the key to finding a good dress is the fit and I always look for comfort first, always. For a daytime casual look, I don’t want to wear anything too constrictive, which is just a matter of personal preference. Tugging and fidgeting with a dress that is too snug is the last thing I want to be doing. So I always gravitate towards shapes like the A-line or a shift cut because they don’t cling to my body, are very flattering and can be easily dressed up if necessary. Next, I look at the style, colour and details. This dress was a no brainer. It is effortless and elegant. I was immediately attracted to the easy feminine shift style and gorgeous lime green colour. The delicate detail along the sleeves and ruffled trim along the bottom are simply divine and also give it a European feel. What’s more, the fabric is to die for; half linen and half cotton, which is great for summer and just gives it some added texture making it a little more unique – and I am always looking for something unique.
