Does anyone else feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day? At this stage in our lives, whether you work outside or inside the home, we are BUSY! When you have active children, it can be hard to fit everything in. Minutes are short when you’re getting ready in the morning, and who has time to stop and think about looking stylish and cute? #aintnobodygottimeforthat. This is where the Day Dress comes in. There are so many reasons why a good day dress is a closet staple.
The Beauty of a Day Dress
It’s easy! A day dress is the wardrobe’s version of your favorite one stop shop. You don’t need to think about what top goes with what bottoms, you just put the dress on and Boom, you’re ready to go!🙌. Throw on a pair of sandals, grab your purse, and you’re out the door. Sign me up for anything that makes life easier!
I posted this one the ‘gram and it was a hit! It’s one of my favorites, too! Every time I wear it, I receive compliments. It has the cutest back and I might have worn it 2 days in a row.🤩
Looking Put Together
There is something about a casual, easy day dress that makes you look and feel put together. A dress has a polished look, even if it’s a t-shirt dress. Day Dresses are great year round, but especially perfect on a hot summer day. Shorts can be restrictive and hot and we all know what happens when you sit for too long in pair of short. 😂 I love that a dress feels free and let’s you take advantage of any breeze that may be happening on a hot summer day!
Day Dress Options
It isn’t hard to find a great day dress – there are a ton of cute options available! Here are some of my favorites that I have worn throughout the summer:
Love the sporty vibe of this dress!
Love that this one can be dressed up too. I’ve paired it with wedges and worn it out to dinner.
A favorite I’ve had for years (even before ALL the bloggers had it!) but too good not to post. Available in tons of colors, but I like the gray and black best. Click here to see 4 different ways to style this dress. Another versatile day dress that transitions well to nighttime!
A classic shirt dress, for sure! Bonus points that it makes a great swimsuit cover-up, but can also be a cute day dress. Mine isn’t on sale, but this one is!
So Many Great Day Dress Options
I rounded up some other options I think are super cute! I love the Vineyard Vines options, but they are a bit pricey. Amazon, Target, and American Eagle all have some really cute casual dresses too. If you don’t have a cute and casual dress in your closet, do yourself a favor and get one! It’s a complete outfit all in one!
