Summer Days + Printed Shifts

Summer is hands down my favorite season!   The sun.  The summer breezes that make us feel fiiine (cue The Isley Brothers).  Patios for lunch and dinner.  Ahhh, the life.  Not to mention, summertime style is so easy.  Enter the shift dress…loose fitting, cool, and flattering for all body types and sizes.  The accessory options are endless and can be tailored to every personality and style.


When I saw this dress at Ann Taylor, I knew that it’d be perfect for a summer day of family gatherings and patio fun with friends.  I fell in love with the print, and what I loved even more that it gave me the look of mixed prints without the effort.  Super easy, right? Now, all that was left was to grab some simple accessories, pop my collar, and let the look take me from day to night!

According to Q, shift dresses are another easy summer option!  A print gives infinite styling options…think metallics, neutrals, or the ever classic black.  Depending on the print, a pop of color may also be a fun choice!
