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. You will receive $10 off your first order + you’ll always hear about their sales and new arrivals first!)
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.
