Summer is one of my favorite seasons to shop for. There are summer parties, BBQs, bridal showers, weddings and so many excuses to be outside enjoying beautiful weather. After a more wet than usual winter, I am ready to soak up as much Vitamin D as possible. Despite living in LA, the temperature can drop down in the 60s and feel pretty cool with the ocean breeze we get, not like Florida. I’m always looking for the perfect summer mini dress to wear in the summer, and I think I just about found it. This is the dress you need for summer because it has exactly what you need: length, lace and versatility! I love a good mini dress because you can dress them up or down depending on the occasion. Not going to lie, I’ve definitely worn this dress to work before! The versatility is a total must for when you travel. Plus, the detail in the lace is simply perfect. Don’t you agree?!

One thing that I love about this dress from Lovers + Friends but can also be found at Lulus.com in so many summer colors, is the fit. As someone who is taller, has wider hips and bigger boobs, I love that I can wear this dress and not feel like my boobs are overpowering. Plus, you don’t have to wear a bra! That’s a bonus!

I wore this lace mini dress to a dinner in Beverly Hills with some friends. It was one of those warmer summer nights that LA rarely gets. I was able to wear this dress without a jacket or sweater (rare!). I can’t wait to wear this dress as summer rolls around!
