Dress Up, Dress Down Summer Dresses

I can’t tell you how happy I am that the weather has finally warmed up and I don’t have to look at my jeans again for a good, long while. My closet is pretty well stocked with frocks for the summertime, but I know that I could quickly get tired of them if I keep wearing them the same way.

That’s why I love having a few styling options in mind to fancy up or make casual my dress-filled wardrobe this summer. So when Marigold invited me to participate in the Summer of No Pants series, it was a perfect opportunity to sit down and really think about what I have on hand to keep my current favorite dress fresh!
