I admit that I’m not much of a summer person. Sure, I love the warm weather, cute sandals and the fresh fruits and veggies that summer brings, but I’m much more of a cold-weather season kind of girl (fall is MY moment), especially when it comes to fashion.
However, there’s one thing I do love about summer, and that’s the summer dress. Summer is the only time you can really wear a dress as a dress was meant to be worn, in its full glory, without a heavy coat/sweater/poncho covering up its amazing style.
I’m lovin’ this summer’s crop of dresses, which come in a wide variety of prints (stripes to graphic), lengths (short to maxi) and colors (white to pastel) to choose from. So I chose 101 (yes, 101–I’m THAT obsessed with summer dresses) awesome summer dresses. Check out my picks after the jump.
