I love a good dress. In the summer, it’s way more comfortable to throw on a cute dress then try to wear anything that clings. I was tempted to write a vivid description of the nastiness that comes from the pairing of heat and jeans (yuck) but I decided to spare you all from the obvious. Anyways, typically I go for pretty muted colors and patterns when it comes to clothing. As a petite person, I don’t want to look like I’m being eaten alive by a tropical rainforest. Lately, however, I’ve been really into dresses that take a bold pattern and make it look classier and updated. These two dresses are definitely on my “to buy” list. I love that they can be easily dressed up and down, from daytime to date night. I can even see wearing the Anthropologie dress into fall with some tights and a cute cardigan!
