I love summer dresses – part deux
Another summer means another round of dress whoring hoarding. For those who did not get enough the first time around, Sherry and I have decided to combine our dress hoarding-Internet researching-style obsessing prowess to bring you a second installment of “I Love Summer Dresses”. But wait—there’s more! Colin, previously mentioned here, will be our guest blogger today, giving us his perspective on what he would wear thinks is “super cute” for summer!
Sherry and my (Jill) picks:
Top Row: Forever 21 Woven Floral Dress • Anthropologie Little Havana Peasant Dress • Anthropologie Festa Dress • J. Crew Anchor-print Shirtdress • Harmon Gun Flap Dress • Dries Van Noten Mini Baby Doll Sports Dress
Bottom Row: Forever 21 Linen Dress • Banana Republic Striped t-shirt Dress • A.P.C. Plaid Dress • Generra Ruffle Bottom Dress • Joie Lovely Feeling Dress • Stella McCartney Tank Dress • Darlin Strapless Dress
Colin’s picks, with some words of wisdom:
I haven’t always been the domesticated, well-trained boyfriend who can rifle through a sale rack and instantly recognize the serious deals on some designer women’s threads. Oh no. There was a time when I would have told you that dresses were a rather bland item of clothing. How many different styles or prints could you really have? A dress is a dress is a dress, I thought. Now, after countless hours of shopping and using the phrase “ohhh, that’s really cute”, I’ve grown to appreciate the designs and styles of women’s clothing (and dresses in particular). Without further ado, on to my summer dress choices:
• I like fun dresses… something different with a little flair. That’s how I feel about the “Kitty” Cargo Shirtdress by DVF. It’s casual and super cute. I like the flared collar and the little self tie belt. The design, along with the khaki color, makes for a super casual and comfortable looking dress.

• For my second pick, I wanted to choose something with a simple design but nice, summery print. This Sweet Pea by Stacy Frati fits the bill. The colors are very soft and pleasing and the cut is cute. I like the ruffles around the neck and am always a big fan of the knotted tie.
