I recently discovered a love for all things dresses. I’ve said before, I don’t wear a lot of dresses when I am teaching. It’s too uncomfortable with the amount of time I spend sitting on the floor. Then one day this summer, I threw on a light, airy dress after a day at the pool, and there was no better feeling. I was hooked. I found that they are also perfect for keeping cool with the fam at a carnival or street fest, date night, baseball game, and the list goes on.
So today I’m sharing my favorite dresses to get you through these Hot summer days! Happy shopping!
I am normally not a huge wearer of dresses. They just don’t fit in well with mom-life, and kindergarten teacher life. Dresses aren’t really practical when you are sitting on the floor for 90% of your day. I also tend to shy away from maxi dresses because they swallow my petite frame (I’m barely pushing 5’1″ if you are wondering). I just can’t pull them off.
Enter THIS DRESS. And maybe you are thinking, “Well Sara, you can’t pull this one off either.” But let me tell you, it is one of the most comfortable things I have ever worn, and the perfect dress for summer. This maxi dress hits me at the perfect ankle length so that my shoes don’t get all tangled up in it. It’s also long enough that I can sit on the floor in it without worrying that something inappropriate might be hanging out. It also comes in a pretty blue color (pictured below), and I debated which color for awhile. I ultimately went with the red because I wanted something a little “spicy” for summer. 😉
I already see myself wearing this dress every weekend. It’s so versatile. I wore it to a birthday party in the city this past weekend, and I plan on wearing it to my mom’s retirement party in a few weeks. It would also be perfect for BBQ’s, baby showers, summer festivals, street fests, concerts in the park, the list goes on…

Still have no idea what to wear this holiday season? Yes, me either. Below I’ve styled two different outfits to help inspire you. Maybe it will help you, maybe it won’t, but a few of these pieces are too cute to pass up.
What I do know? Booties are my jam. Christmas Eve, I figure I will be wearing these booties in gray and these adorable earrings. I am leaning towards this dress, mainly because it is comfortable and forgiving so I can enjoy my Candy Cane Pie. 😉 Honestly, I would prefer to be wearing these around a fire but alas, duty calls. This will be the one day each year that I don’t look like I just crawled out of bed. I kid, I kid. 😉
On Christmas day, it’s all about being festive and cozy. I plan on wearing this top with my most comfortable jeans. We travel from house to house on Christmas Day, and who wants to be uncomfortable while sitting in a car? Or maybe I will just wear these…game time decision!
I am a lover of a good sweater dress, I mean, who isn’t? They are cozy and stylish, yet still forgiving enough to enjoy a few extra slices of pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving. The color block pattern on this particular dress is so in right now, and the over-the-knee boots help provide enough coverage that this dress can be worn for work or for play. Personally, I don’t wear a lot of dresses to work because I spend the majority of my day on the floor with a menagerie of five year olds but I may have to make an exception for this one. I will definitely be wearing them more as the weather continues to cool down.
I’ve also rounded up a few of my favorite sweater dresses to take you from fall into winter. I plan on living in them this holiday season!
Will you be living in sweater dresses this fall? What is your favorite fall item?
