Free People - Best Summer Dresses

Hello, Wild Pretty Things!

Summer dresses are top on my list of reasons to be excited about summertime. In “The Valley”, temps can reach over 100 degrees on the daily. In heat like that, you really don’t want to be wearing much. When the weather starts to get warmer, summer dresses are an effortless way to look chic and stay comfortable. May is the best month for shopping for Spring dresses. All of the bright colors and fun details start to appear in the window displays – Inspiring all of us to have a little fun with our look.

Dresses, like today’s outfit, are my ideal everyday look come summer time. Something you can easily throw on and go about your day, while still remaining chic. From the moment I first saw this dress, it was love at first sight. My style always has a feminine flair, so natally I gravitated to the beautiful, feminine details of this dress. The lace back strap details are so eye-catching and really make this dress a special piece.

The way the dress fastens makes you feel like a Greek goddess- Strong & Feminine. The dress is super lightweight, which would be a godsend during the humid days of Summer. All of the straps have these really cute tassels on the ends. Tassels are my all time favorite Summer detail. You see tassels pop up almost everywhere during Summer and it makes me so endlessly happy.

I had a lot of fun with the accessories in this look. Like most Free People summer dresses, this dress has some serious boho vibes. I decided to play up that aesthetic and break out some of the armbands I have been purchasing lately. I found this gold armband at a boutique near my house and that was all it took to fuel my new obsession (Found my exact armband on Amazon for less than $10 – It comes with the same armband in silver for free!

These wedges are so unbelievably comfortable and perfect for the boho vibe I was going for. As always, summer staples sunnies make their presence.  Finished with this chain strapped, silver purse and this gorgeous layered necklace.

Free People Summer Dresses

In my opinion, Free People makes the best summer dresses. Now, I understand that this is a very bold statement. However, when it comes to chic dresses that make you look and, most importantly, feel like the powerful, feminine women that you are. Whenever I put on a Free People summer dress, I feel like my strongest, most confident self. There is something so carefree and whimsical about their designs. While a large portion of their clothing items is bohemian inspired, Free People offers lots of beautiful pieces that speak to girls of all shapes and style.

According to the Free People website, the girl they design for is, “a 26-year-old girl, smart, creative, confident and comfortable in all aspects of her being, free and adventurous, sweet to tough to tomboy to romantic. A girl who likes to keep busy and push life to its limits, with traveling and hanging out and everything in between. Who loves Donovan as much as she loves The Dears, and can’t resist petting any dog that passes her by on the street.”

Who wouldn’t describe themselves as any combination of those things? Bette then just identifying with that statement, Free People clothing gives women the confidence to live their life to these standards – Free & Adventurous!
