dress obsessed

even though i’m a separates girl through, and through there is something to be said about dresses. that’s why when summer arrives i’m dress obsessed. first, a dress is one and done. no need to worry about which items go with what. second, a dress is soooo comfortable to wear all summer long. and there are so many lengths to choose from maxi, midi, or knee length. third, a dress is perfect for work, weekend or special occasion. now you understand why i’m dress obsessed all summer long.

J.Crew has long been a favorite brand to shop for dresses. casual, wear to work, and occasion dresses are available all year long. Anthropologie also carries a wide variety of dresses that help you keep your cool while looking chic. of course, Nordstrom is always a go-to retailer when i’m dress obsessed as well as Ann Taylor and Talbots. take a look at a few more reasons to be dress obsessed.

this metallic tweed dress from J.Crew will take you from desk to dinner in style. it’s a smart choice for summertime temps. but a jacket or cardigan would be perfect partners when it’s time to duck inside a cold office building or theater.

add gold accessories from head to toe to emphasize the metallic thread and gold buttons.

love this pleated A-line dress that comes in pink plus three other colors. nikol’s outfit is from Carolina Herrera.

a shirtdress (similar here) is a practical choice when a casual outing is on the calendar.

fit and flare dresses are a flattering choice for most body types. it’s very ladylike and polished perfect for work or brunch.

stripe jumpsuit

yes, i’m dress obsessed but let’s not forget jumpsuits are a great alternative to dresses. they’re one and done too. this striped jumpsuit recently came back in stock. but there are similar ones here, here, and here.

happy thursday, gang!

    I love a new summer dress. I actually bought two at Talbots this past week. Both are sheath style. One is a print pique nd the other is navy with three dimensional embroidered flowers. Love them both!

    The dress looks stunning on you! Everything is so casual today, I don’t wear a dress very often. You have given me something to think about!
    Thank you Beth!

    I like the dress but I really think it is too short. The pink dress that comes to mid knee and the shirt dress that comes slightly above the knee are more attractive.

    Hi Beth, I love the dress it’s so unual. I love wearing dresses but always end up with seperates. It looks really lovely on you xoxo

    I love a dress–and just as you say, it’s one and done. And I’m ecstatic when I find a simple, chic sleeveless sheath dress that’s a nice cotton, and lined with cotton as well, so you can wash it!–that is perfection in summer. I have several–they’re beautiful, but so comfortable as well. People always compliment you in a dress. These are all gorgeous.

    I, too, love dresses. Alas, my legs are such that I can only wear a midi!
    That tweed shift looks like it could transition easily to fall with any number of tops beneath it.
