Stunning Summer Dresses

image description

I may or may not have a slight Goodwill obsession. When it comes to cute dresses, I confess, I have too many. But the problem is, when I find another darling one on the dress rack at Goodwill, and at just $5.99, it’s incredibly hard to pass up!

This month, I put together some cute late summer looks with dresses from Goodwill, and I found some super cute ones!

This ruffley red stunner is by Chelsea and Violet. The fabric is a light cotton with a raised texture pattern, and I love how the design effortlessly blends boho chic with cute and contemporary. The color has such a great summery feel too. I paired the dress with a vintage amber stone necklace, and a killer pair of Antonio Melani stilettos. The stilettos were a splurge at $20.00, but in almost new condition and a steal of a deal compared to retail price!

My next look is a light pink dress by Lush. Let’s be clear, I am not a tan person by any means, but one of the perks of summer mowing and lawn work is that I get a little tan, and for a brief window, get to wear light pink without being totally washed out! I paired this look with the Melani heels and some coral tear drop earrings.

My last dress is the most comfy, but has such a laid back vintage vibe that it has quickly become one of my favorite. It’s a light blue material with a dainty white polka dot design, and cute rolled cap sleeves. The dress is by Seraphine, and because it’s mostly viscose, it’s comfortable enough to wear as a day dress, but cute enough for a night out. I paired this look with another pair of Antonio Melani pumps (it was a good shoe day at Goodwill) and I love the way the strappy pumps keep this look casual and dressy.

So don’t judge me for my obsession…or do – but before you judge me, go check out the dress rack at Goodwill for yourself! There are treasures just waiting to be found! Catch you next month!
