I could live in dresses. In fact, in the spring, summer and fall, I usually do.
Dresses are easy. They always fit, and if you buy the empire waisted ones that are so popular – and plentiful – in the marketplace they provide great coverage on those not so sleek days.
I love that I don’t have a waistband to get hot and sweaty in our middle America humidity. I love that I’ve was able to wear non-maternity dresses a lot longer, even when I was pregnant. And I love that I don’t have to find dresses to fit both my waist and my hips at the same time… a super irritating task when it comes to pants.
Here is a small collection of fun dresses (find shopping info on Polyvore.com) that are also very inexpensive, which is how I like my summer clothes because they are usually having picnics in the grass, drenched in sunscreen or semi-damp from being layered over my bathing suits.
