Cute Summer Dresses

♦ DAY 11 of the #HWHFitnessChallengeLog your exercise here. ♦

Hi friends!  I’m already starting to feel so off my game with summer here.  I can’t tell you how many times this week I’ve had to ask what day it is! Does that happen to you too? I’m just the kind of person who functions better with routine and lately that’s been out the window!

I placed some big fashion orders recently for the next dressing room post and when the clothes started arriving, there were so many winners!  Lots of things I try never make it to the blog because it’s not what it seemed online, the quality is poor, the fit doesn’t work or whatever.

But, these orders were so good that I’m having to break it into several posts. Today, I’ll show you some of the dresses that are just too cute, and tomorrow will be more of a regular Dressing Room post with a mix of everything!  AND, I noticed that lots of these cute summer dresses are on sale, so I wanted to share today!

For size reference, I’m super petite, 5’1, 11o, 34D.

Tiered Dress

Let’s start with this cheerful sundress in the most gorgeous shade of soft yellow.  The three tiered style is particularly forgiving, but also youthful and fun.  It also comes in a pretty light blue and is only $55.

Smocked Dress

Remember when I shared this perfect summer floral dress in the hot orange color?!  I loved that one so much that I had to order this pale peachy/pink color.  Although the black one is still calling my name!   This one checks all the boxes- comfortable, cute, flattering fit, and under $100! It’s also lined, so you won’t worry about it being sheer.

DRESS FIT: TTS, XS. I’ve seen it on women of all shapes and sizes and it’s adorable on every one of them – even pregnant mamas!

White Lace Trim Dress

Who doesn’t need a classic white dress for summer?! This one is darling with charming lace trim and flowy sleeves.  It’s 50% off, but going fast.  Currently only sizes medium and XXL are available.

Black Fit & Flare Dress

Here you go ladies! I found your perfect Summer little black dress for weddings, parties and fun nights out with friends or your man! It’s a flattering fit & flare style with gorgeous v-neck and adjustable spaghetti straps. It’s hard to tell in the photo but the dress has ladder stitching and is partially lined.  You could have a lot of fun accessorizing this one!

DRESS FIT: TTS, XS.  It’s more midi length on me since I’m only 5’1

cute summer eyelet dress

White Eyelet Dress  40% off

As soon as May hits, I feel like all I want to wear is white eyelet everything!  I love the sweet, innocent style the drop waist provides and how they made the dress more special with the eyelet medallion and lace trim.  It’s also lined and machine washable!


cute summer shift dress

Embroidered Floral Shift Dress 40% off

Let’s book a vacation and bring this dress!  You could wear it over your swimsuit or throw it on for a casual patio lunch.  The pretty v-neckline with blue floral embroidery makes me want to wear my hair up to show it off.


cute summer striped dress

Striped Tie Waist Dress 40% off

This is exactly the kind of dress I loved to wear to work during the hot summers. It’s office appropriate with the shape and button down style, but will keep you cool since it’s sleeveless.  The tie belt also helps define your waist.

Eyelet Midi Dress

I couldn’t get over the goodness of this flowy, yet still sassy white dress!  You have to see the criss cross back too!  It’s only $70 and also comes in blue.

DRESS FIT: TTS, XXS- it’s meant to be midi length, but on me it’s more like a maxi

cute summer red maxi dress

Red Maxi Dress

This dress is the most comfortable maxi with spaghetti straps that is perfect for date night, vacation or just weekend fun! I’ve even seen it at the pool over a swimsuit.  It hangs nicely without clinging.  I loved this one so much, I got in both black and red!

DRESS FIT: TTS, Petite P – love that I didn’t have to alter this one.  

Have a great day, friends!

    1. Hi! Thank you! This camera is the Samsung NX300. It’s actually a few years old and discontinued, so there aren’t many left, but this is the newer version.

  2. The last red dress is stunning on you! Love it. I would love a post on evening event dresses, I’m going on a cruise around Italy in Sept. and need some inspiration for evening.

  3. What kind of under garments are you wearing under the Eyelet Midi Dress? I love the back, but not sure what to wear under the dress, or if you have to wear something under it. I am also a D cup. Thanks!

  4. Hey! I love all the dresses and look forward to your next post with the rest of the goodies you ordered! I have a request; I think you have talked about it some here and there, but I am super petite (like you) and had a recent BA. I would love a bra post! I need a variety of new bras and don’t know where to buy and what’s best as far as strapless, everyday, t-shirt, etc! Any help with that would be awsome! 🙂

      1. I recently bought the Natori Feathers bra on the Nordstrom half-year sale and am really liking it. It’s very similar to your everyday bra. I appreciate that they carry small band, larger cup sizes.

  5. Long, short, lace, trimmed. Just too many to select one 🙁 I like all the dresses and you look adorable in the yellow and white lace trimmed dress, Megan 🙂 Thanks for this awesome collection of super-beautiful dresses!

  6. What do you wear for underpants under your short summer dresses? Boy shorts, slip? I’m always worried about the wind blowing them up.
