There’s no denying that I’m a dress girl. I just can’t resist a pretty dress for almost any occasion, and a lightweight, breezy dress is most certainly my summer uniform. Although there is no shortage of beautiful dresses on the market of all different colors, textiles, and styles, there’s really only one that I want on hot summer days.
This lightweight dress is the perfect blend of both cotton (80%) and linen (15%), making it easy and airy for this humid New England heat.
Versatility is the best feature of a cotton/linen blend dress. Style it casually for a low key Saturday. Throw on a denim jacket in case the temperatures drop – especially in the evening. Or, pair the dress with a classic cardigan and flats for an office appropriate look.
Honestly, I’ve already worn this dress more than I’m comfortable admitting. Fortunately, it washes extremely well. I even put it in the dryer without shrinkage. Actually, at first I dried it by accident, but when all turned out okay, I made it a habit.
What is your go to summer outfit?
