Summer Dresses | Nordstrom & Target Edition

Good morning Monday!  I can’t believe this weekend will be July 4th!  Here’s hoping the last half of the year is so.much.better than the first!  I think this season has really caused us to think about our lives and how we want to live.  How important social connections are and that it really matters what kind of people we are in the world.  I pray that the kids can go safely back to school in August, but I’m not counting on it.  How about you??

Today’s post is a Part 2 of my latest Target and Nordstrom haul.   Part 1 was Summer outfits featuring separates that you can mix and match with shorts, jeans and skirts. Today is full of fabulous dresses (think office, party, wedding and more!).

Let me know what you think of this post and where you want me to order from next!  I love hearing your feedback and it helps me plan future posts!

I love the easy style of this chambray wrap mini dress. The fabric is nice and soft and the style is too cute! It’s criss crosses at the chest, but it is seemed close so it won’t come open. The flirty ruffle him is a fun touch.

Dress Fit: I’m wearing an XS

Dressing Room Finds Nordstrom and Target, V-Neck Baby Doll Dress, Studded Sandals

This baby doll dress is super popular and I’m not surprised it’s selling out quickly! I have seen it coming in and out of stock so check back if they don’t have the color or size you want.

I got it in the white and red and it’s so cute. It’s got flutter sleeves, a clip dot texture and is fully lined. It’s a great little weekend dress and looks great with both wedges or flat sandals.

Dress Fit: Runs large, I’m wearing an XS and would prefer XXS or XSP

Why does this dress remind me of Little Bo peep?! Probably the way the bodice is gathered and the cap sleeves, but I’m kind of digging it! I think it’s a really cute day dress and would look great with your nude Miller sandals.

Beaded Bag

How cute is this beaded bag?! It’s a fun one to carry with your summer styles, adding a bit of extra interest, just like a statement earring does. It will hold just your daily essentials at 7 1/2″ x 10 1/2″.  It’s beaded in the front and straw on the back and looks way better in person than on the website.

This dress is definitely vacation or fiesta ready!  You’ll turn heads for sure because it’s bold with a bright pink background with a lively floral print.  If that’s too much attention for you, it also comes in a gorgeous green and pale blue combo!

The bodice has a sweet front tie and the tiered maxi skirt flows beautifully away from your body.

Dressing Room Finds Nordstrom and Target, Off the Shoulder Green Midi Dress, Clear Heels

Off the Shoulder Dress • Clear HeelsBead BraceletSimilar Wrap BraceletEarrings

This off shoulder dress is so sassy with the bare shoulders and handkerchief hem.  It slips on easily over your head, and the smocked shoulders comfortably stay in place without riding up.  The dress is lined to the knee.

This navy floral dress is sophisticated with the dark background, but still playful and fun with the lavender florals. It zips up the back with a hidden zipper and is fully lined to the knee.  I love how the asymmetric shape and ruffle adds that flirty vibe.  Was $148, now $60.

Can you even believe this dress is from Target?!  It reminds me of something you’d find at a department store with the sleek strapless style, side rushing, and I’m CRAZY for the asymmetric slit at the knee.  The chest has a sticky lining that helps keep it up and I’m wearing it with this strapless bra.  The only problem is, I couldn’t get the back zipped all the way up!  It’s only $50, but looks much more expensive.

Dress Fit: I’m wearing a 0 (it comes in size 0 to 22W)

I hope you enjoyed this dedicated dress post!  I was really surprised at how many good things are at Target right now!  Since we’re only really going out for groceries, I haven’t been popping into Target like I might otherwise, so I hadn’t seen many of these new styles.  Do you want more Target hauls in the future?  Where do you like to shop most?  Let me know what other retailers you’re interested in seeing pieces from and I’ll add it to a future blog post!

Now go kick Monday’s booty!

    Love these posts. I bought the exact same v neck coral colored maxi dress from Target several weeks back. I was really surprised at the quality for the price. It was the first dress I have ever purchased from Target. A winner for sure!

      I haven’t been going to Target lately, so I forget what great fashion options they have! I’m so glad the post was helpful for you!
