Happy Monday! Did everyone have a good weekend? WE DID! We got to spend the weekend with our neighbors at their lovely lake house and it was so much fun. Getting out of Dallas for a weekend of friendship and fun is just what we needed!  Just a reminder that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is still going strong and will continue through August 8. Be sure and check out all of my top picks for women’s, athleisure, beauty and more by going to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale drop-down menu above. Now lets talk about something else… I want to look at some of my favorite everyday summer dresses and how to style them. These are cute and casual dresses that can be dressed up or down depending on where you are going. I love wearing dresses during the summer because they are lightweight and chic. Plus, they’re so easy to throw on to give an instant put together look. Let’s look at the shoes, bags and accessories that will complete your look so you are stylish this summer.

How to Style Everyday Summer Dresses

Let’s start by looking at my favorite dresses. For starters, I love this ruffle tiered maxi dress. The tie waist makes it so flattering, and I love the ruffle detailing! If you want something a little shorter with some color, I recommend this square neck shift dress. I love the marigold color! This is one of the few shades of yellow that looks good on everyone. The square neck is a flattering neckline and I love the flounce hem. It’s so pretty and feminine. Another great dress is this cutout shift dress. The cutout detailing is so cute. The fabric of the dress is super lightweight and airy, making it perfect for summer. I wear a size S in all of these dresses.

Now, the key to giving your everyday summer dresses that wow-factor is all about the handbag, shoes and accessories. First off, a straw bag is the epitome of summer fashion. I love this Pamela Munson straw tote bag and this straw tote bag. I also love my new Gucci crossbody bag (read more about my Gucci favorites HERE). The color is great for summer and all year long. As for shoes, a simple slide sandal always goes well with an everyday summer look. My personal favorites are these gold slide sandals, these embroidered slide sandals, and these Marc Fisher slide sandals.

As far as accessories go, a chic statement earring always adds a lot to any casual dress. Some of my favorites includes these raffia lantern earrings, these chandelier earrings, and these blue drop earrings. Just add your favorite bracelet stack and you are ready to go.
