Fashion Friday: Sundresses

by Courtney on July 16, 2010

Fashion Friday is back at it again!

Today’s topic: Sundresses

When the warm weather rolls around, there’s nothing I like more than the simplicity of a sundress. Just throw it on, add a few accessories and a cute pair of flats, and you’re out the door in no time flat. Not only does the sundress make figuring out an outfit that much easier, but I just adore the flowy look and feel, not to mention the added comfort. I’m definitely a fan of avoiding the waistband digging into my belly every now and then!

I’ve been doing a lot of “window shopping” lately for sundresses, (since I just can’t seem to get enough of them and need to find a new one for the Healthy Living Summit!) so I thought I’d share some of my top picks, which are all under $50!

One site I just recently came across and am LOVING: Windsor. They have a TON of cute dresses for under $50 — here’s a couple of my faves:

White/Navy Dress with Floral Print – $29.90

Yellow Rose Print Dress – On Sale for $17.43!

Olive Green Gladiator Dress – $39.90

I was also able to find some pretty good sales on Nordstrom, too:

Frenchi Lightweight Tank Dress – On Sale for $21.90

And, as always, Lulu’s also has some seriously hot dresses. I found a couple cuties here, too:
If Friends Were Flower Dress – $36.00 (this one has a cute back to it!)
I mayyy have put one or two of these cuties into my online shopping cart, and am this close to hitting the checkout button…
Any guesses which dresses I’m (maybe) buying??? :-D

OMG! So cute! Sundresses are my favorite. I work in a cornfield so I dress in gym cloths all the time- any chance I get I wear a sundress.
Hmmmm. . . My favorites are the top two. I think number one. I feel like the blue would look great on you

10 Shayla July 16, 2010 at 2:43 pm

OMG those are all such cute dresses! I’m always looking for cute sundresses at affordable prices and you just did the work for me – thank you! I absolutely love the yellow one and the hibuscus one – just may have to buy them!
My only problem though w/ online shopping is how do you know which size to buy?! I’m always worried about it being too big or too small…any tips?!


11 Courtney July 16, 2010 at 2:57 pm

Yes, I worry about that all the time (like about an hour ago when I was trying to decide!). Usually, I’ll look at the size chart and try to decide which area I need to fit the best (bust, waist, hips) and go by that measurement. So for example, today when I was buying my “mystery dress” I knew I wanted to make sure it fit in the waist, so I went by that measurement in the size chart. Hope that helps! :)

You could totally rock all of them, but I’m feeling the ECI dress.


13 erica July 16, 2010 at 3:52 pm

19 Jolene ( July 16, 2010 at 6:13 pm

Ooooooh I love them all!!!!!! I would definitely buy more than one!!

If I had to pick just one, I would go for the gladiator dress because I think it is the most unique and trendy :-)
