Casual Dresses Under $50: Weekend Wear With The Mint Julep Boutique


Happy Monday, Dolls! We hope you all had a great first official weekend of Summer. The hot months are officially upon us, which means it’s time to take all the weekend parties outside, AKA patio nights and casual BBQs. But as always, many of us spend wayyyy too much time trying to figure out what to wear to these laid-back get-togethers. Let’s be honest, we all want to look good, but you never want to look like you’re trying too hard.


To combat this never-ending issue, we’ve teamed up with The Mint Julep Boutique to show off our favorite ways to keep your summer looks trendy, comfortable, and most importantly, affordable. We’re sharing our most-loved items in a two-part series, so stay tuned for the next post! (Side note – if you haven’t already signed up for their email list, definitely do it.

Okay so, whether I’m headed to a family gathering or a night out with friends, I tend to lean towards wearing dresses over pants/shorts most of the time. The problem I run into is finding casual dresses that are comfortable and easily dressed-up/dressed-down for different occasions.


The Mint Julep Boutique has so many cute, yet casual dresses to choose from, but the Lasting Love Maxi Dress in Navy is my absolute favorite. The fabric is really soft and light, without being see-through. (why is EVERYTHING see-through nowadays? Can we leave a little something to the imagination? #amiright?!) I also love that the dress is loose and flowy, but isn’t frumpy – another rarity. Oh and the best part…. (Well besides the fact that the dress is only $46) is that it has pockets! Yep, it’s pretty life-changing TBH.


I’m wearing a small, and it fits perfectly. The only issue that I have is that I’m 5’2” so it is long on me. But I paired the dress with my Steve Madden espadrille wedges, and the length was perfect.

Here are our top 10 favorite casual dresses from The Mint Julep Boutique, which are all UNDER $50!

  1. Lasting Love Maxi Dress in Navy (The dress I’m wearing)

  2. Sweetest Summer Dress in Powder Blue – I’m loving the seersucker pattern, and would be so cute with wedges (like these) or flats (these)!

  3. Love That I’m Feeling Dress in White – I need this dress in every color.

  4. Western Skies Chambray Dress – This would be so cute for a 4th of July BBQ! I love how it combines the chambray and embroidery trend in one dress.

  5. Better Than You Know Dress in Coral – Here’s another amazing t-shirt dress. (Are you sensing a trend?!) It’s made of a jersey knit material, making it soft and stretchy!

  6. Lasting Love Maxi Dress in Orchid – (The dress I’m wearing, but in purple)

  7. Summer Fun Dress in Navy – Stripes + tassels = match made in heaven. This dress would look so cute with THESE flats.

  8. Never Too Busy Dress in Ivory-Royal – LOVE this bold print. Perfect for brunch paired with wedges (these or these!) Plus, this dress has pockets too!

  9. Casual Habits Dress in Slate Blue – This dress would be so cute as a cover up for a day by the pool or on the beach.

  10. Good To Flow Maxi Dress in Taupe – Here’s another maxi dress with pockets! I love how it looks with a lace bralet (like this one!)
