STYLE: Summer 2016 Sundresses on My Mind

Summer is on its way, meaning…it’s time to clear the way for summer 2016’s BEST sundresses!

Chloe Spring/Summer 2016 Rainbow Colored Maxi Dress

Despite the 50 degree temperatures and rain hanging around outside my window, sundress weather IS coming and I figure it’s high time I start to prepare my closet. After all, when you’re bundled up in a sweater and scarf on May 17th – why NOT do a little sundress shopping, right?

No doubt, when it comes to the it sundress of the year…Chloe wins. When the rainbowed confection of a maxi dress swept down the runway last fall, it was indeed a moment and I dare so NO ONE can top a Chloe sundress in summer 2016. However, we might not all have the bank balance to allow for such rainbow chiffon beautifulness. Womp womp. Fear not, I rallied up some really nice alternatives from Alice + Olivia and our good pals at Topshop that will definitely have you parading around in your favorite gladiator sandals at a festival near you soon!

Sitting here, sipping on hot tea and watching Bates Motel (ohmygod, can we TALK about that finale?? I’m rewatching season 1 to recover), I’m thinking on the warm summer days ahead with the sun beaming down on us all. The forecast is down right crummy this week, but guaranteed a beautiful summer afternoon is headed our way and what better way to peruse the local shops, sip margaritas by the pool or even enjoy a refreshing picnic in the park than in a casual summer sundress? Whatever is on your agenda this summer, a sundress is the #1 effortless way to look pulled together and chic. Pro tip: a Fedora will top you off nicely!

But basically: sundresses are a gift from the fashion gods and should be celebrated!

Of course when it comes to attitude in a sundress, no one does it better than Beyonce. This summer, while sashaying down the sidewalk or sipping on an iced cold glass of lemonade, remember Bey – and her marigold Roberto Cavalli gown that gave LIFE to her HBO Lemonade special. B’s basically playing 100 percent of the time for me these days, so I thought a little send off of her going to town in a killer maxi dress would be the PERFECT send-off for us to perfect our own summer closets.

Thanks so much for reading dreamer and let’s countdown the days till sundress weather, together. Now! Take it, Bey:
