One of the best things about summer is all the fun festivities. Summer is full of celebration – weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, fun events. This summer, I’ve had my fair share of dress hunting. I attended my first blogger event with RewardStyle and celebrated my 5 year anniversary with Tim, along with several birthday celebrations. I’ve been asked where to shop for wedding guest dresses, so I thought this season would be the perfect time to share some summer soiree dresses under $100. Whether you’re attending a summer wedding, celebratory event, or just traveling, I’ve got the dress for you! I’ve also included details on this Lovers + Friends dress that I was obsessed with and finally got my hands on.
I got this Lovers + Friends dress in my usual XS. The chest area is a little baggy while the arms are snug. The chest area honestly fit so awkwardly, but this dress is just too pretty to pass up! The photos on the model show a blush pink, but in reality the dress is a bit brighter. What I love most about this dress is how flowy it is and the metallic dot accents! I felt so feminine and flirty when wearing it, perfect for mine and Tim’s 5 year anniversary. The dress wrinkles super easily, but a little steaming does the trick.
Pair your party dress with a little straw bag for a summer vibe, like I did here. I’d usually wear one of my Chanel WOC bags when I dress up, but I wanted to keep things light and summery. I have this dress (seen here)and this one, both of which I have worn casually but can be dressed up for an event. I’m wishing I had another summer event to look forward to because I’m loving this little blue dress ($47) and this pink slip ($53), both of which are on sale!
