Well hello and sorry for my lack of posts for the last two days. I was in Philly because my sister had her baby and I was lucky enough to be with her and my brother-in-law during her labor. It was an incredible, intense, and beautiful experience. My sweet new niece, Margherita (Maggie) Jean, named after our grandmother, is just about the cutest thing on the planet and I can’t wait to get back down there this weekend to snuggle her.
More on that later but in the meantime here are some summer dresses I’m loving. I love a summer dress and my collection is pretty fantastic if I do say so myself. This post was reader-requested so I hope you enjoy it. I know I had a lot of fun making it!

As a very serious block print-wearer, I had to start with this section. I cannot get enough blockprint and my go-to places to buy it are Emerson Frye (the entire India collection), Madison Matthews, and Ophelia & Indigo, a small female-founded made-in-the-USA brand.
I wear this blue midi dress all the time and would say it’s probably my number-one go-to for date night. And this pretty marigold block print mini dress has been a favorite this summer too. I have my eye on this Mille dress and keep seeing it everywhere.
There is nothing chicer than an all-white dress with a pop of color in a bag or shoe for summer. Number one on my list is this tee shirt dress.
Blue and white
We all know I love a good blue and white dress and my personal collection is out of control. A few pieces on my radar are this pretty flutter-sleeved number, and this stunner that is kind of purple-y but seems mostly blue.
The way that I’m sick of everyone in neutrals all the time you guys… Can we please normalize bright colors again? How fun would it be to wear this hot pink fun silhouette? I love the pattern (and price!) on this dress from J.Crew Factory and the back/color of this canary yellow one are amazing.
Wedding szn is upon us. There are so many great wedding-dress options out there but my two personal favorites are this blue and white dress that would be so fun to twirl on the dance floor, and this absolutely gorgeous pink off the shoulder that looks classy af.
