20 summer dresses and coverups I’m loving



 Sharing some of my favorite casual and date night dresses for summer.

Hi friends! How’s the morning going? I’m catching a barre class on demand and then heading out for a walk with the fam before it gets too hot. I hope you have a wonderful day ahead.

For today’s post, I thought it would be fun to chat about summer dresses! To be honest, my streak of getting dressed in “real” (aka non-athletic) clothes didn’t last very long. I wear lululemon until mid afternoon, we head to the pool, and then I’m in a swimsuit and coverup the rest of the day. Even though I haven’t been getting dressed up much – the Pilot and I haven’t been on a date since the end of February – I’ve still bought a handful of cute summer dresses. I LOVE dresses in the summer. They feel girly and cute and the convenience factor is a win since they’re an entire outfit in one. They make me happy, so I’ve still been adding to my collection despite the circumstances. When we can be out in the real world again, I’ll be ready. 😉

I wanted to share some of the best ones I’ve found online lately including some coverups because #summerlife. If you have any dresses you love right now, please share the love in the comments section!

20 summer dresses and coverups I’m loving


This camo dress. I’ll wear this one in the fall with low-top sneakers.

*Paige midi dress. I’ve had this one for about a year and I love it with sandals or low tops. It’s also a great travel dress.

*Madewell tee dress. I have this dress in a few colors! It’s casual while still feeling put-together and I like it with a jean jacket or chambray around my waist.

*This gingham off-shoulder dress.

*Frida dress. Beautiful lightweight fabric and easy to dress up with wedges or everyday with sandals.

*This dress! Choose what you pay right now and it transitions well into fall.

*This side tie dress. It’s currently sold out but I’m crossing my fingers they restock because I’d love another color. The fit is super flattering and the fabric is slightly textured.

*The infamous Leith dress (only $40 right now!). I have this one in a few colors and it’s so flattering and comfortable. I wear it with low-top sneakers and a jacket like this one (<— my current fave jacket).

Date night:

Obsessed with the fabric and print of this dress!

This dress is gorgeous with the tiered fabric. Would be cute with statement earrings and a bun. 🙂

Love the leg slit on this one!

Little white dress.

Bird tiered dress.

Love the color and smocked top of this one.

This beautiful floral dress.

Swim coverups:

*I got this coverup for our cruise and it totally passes as a dress. Cute with a jean jacket and on sale in pink here.

*This coverup is very inexpensive and I was surprised by the quality – a heads up that it shrinks in the wash. (I accidentally dried mine and the sleeves are a bit snug.)

*The print on this one is unique and fun. I only wish the side slits weren’t quite so high.

Beautiful v-neck maxi dress in a few different colors.

Lace coverup maxi dress.

* = something I already own and love.

Where do you shop for cute dresses? I find the best ones at Revolve, Nordstrom, and through my Trunk Club shipments.

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by the blog today.
