In last week’s post, I promised I would continue my summer dress guide and this week I am highlighting the mini dress. I love to wear dresses and the mini dress is one of those styles that you can wear day to evening, to work, to the park and just about to any occasion. The mini dress can be simple (like this one) yet it can also be sophisticated (like this one). I bought this dress shortly before leaving for my (spontaneous) trip to Europe. I ended up wearing it on two separate occasions-well technically it wasn’t photographed the first time so I thought I could get away with a second night! (shh)

I most recently wore this mini dress to drinks with some friends and chose to dress it up a little more with some rockstud heels (dupe here under $150). This is also another one of those dresses that I will be bringing with me to the Bahamas for my work trips & lounging time. I’ve been leaning more and more towards blue dresses, as you can see in my recent posts here and here. If you love this dress but don’t love the price tag, I found this mini dress which is equally cute for under $50. Plus, these are the perfect shades of color for the 4th of July. If you’re still in need of a dress, see some of my favorites that I’ve linked below!
