Current Mood: Jet lagged, over caffeinated and ready for the long weekend! I’m in sunny Florida this Memorial Day Weekend and while packing, I may have gone a little overboard with swimsuits, I lost count, but also I realized with dresses too!

By nature, dresses are an entire look! They’re an essential piece to any summer wardrobe, especially in June, July and August when temperatures surge above 85 degrees. Plus, there are certain things that make a dress the PERFECT summer dress, like: comfort level, breathability, easy to pack and day-to-night flexiblity.

Whether you have a vacation on the horizon or you’re attending a summer wedding, the beauty of dresses are you can throw them on and call it a day! Below are 5 insanely cute dresses for summer that I’m obsessing over.

Dress #1: Sunny Beach Dress

Let’s start with this pink stripe Juliet Dunn Blouson Dress. The belt! The sleeves! It’s the perfect glamorous beachwear that is effortless, but also sunny and put together.

Dress #2: Day-to-Night Slip Dress

Slip dresses are the epitome of effortless. I love how flirty they are from day-to-night and typically pretty simple during the day with something thrown over your shoulders. I’m obsessing over this Fleur du Mal cowl neck, yes please!
