A cute summer dress should be in your closet. While I don’t wear a lot of dresses as they are not practical for my day to day work, I do love them, especially in the summer. I usually add one or two per summer and that’s it for the year. Recently I came across the cutest summer dress and it became my dress purchase for the year.

This gingham dress is from the LC Lauren Conrad collection at Kohl’s. While the neckline and sleeve style is not the most flattering cut for me, I could not walk away from the pleat neck detail and the back- the sweetest little bow detail. And, it’s gingham! Gingham will always be a classic summer pattern.

Weekend errands– Need to run some errands? Throw on your summer dress with sneakers and go! Simple jewelry keeps the look casual, but a scarf tied to a crossbody bag adds a little interest.

I hope this has inspired you to add a summer dress to your summer wardrobe. This dress comes in a solid chambray color and floral and tropical prints. It also comes in a sweet yellow stripe. And it’s on sale! I’m wearing an x-small. The small was a bit large in the neck, but if you are more busty you might want to go with a small or your regular size. I’m usually a small. The gingham tote from Belk’s is on sale too!
