The best part of spring/summer dressing for me has always been the opportunity to pull out my favorite day dresses. I adore the ease of a dress, both comfort-wise and the one-piece instant outfit effect! Dresses require minimal planning, especially when they incorporate fun design details like the pretty and colorful embroidery work on this Free People frock. Think about it…if you have a pair of pants or a skirt you really want to wear, you also have to think about a coordinating top and probably a belt, and your shoes, jacket, and jewelry will have to go with all of these pieces. With a dress, you need only worry about accessories, and for fun day dresses, metallic sandals will always be on point. Easy peasy!! These gladiators were my first Aldo purchase, and I have worn them with EVERYTHING. They are now sold out, but this lace up pair by Steve Madden has me thinking I might need a second pair of gold sandals!
I anticipate this dress becoming a heavy hitter in my daily rotation. The color makes me smile, and it is SO very comfortable! And isn’t that what it’s really about in our everyday routine? Baseball games, end of school events, summer birthday parties, and of course Cinco de Mayo will all be covered! I have linked a few other favorite easy summer embroidered day dresses below. Every closet should have at least one!
