Even though it’s summer, where everything is all about the brights, it’s nice to stick to easy neutrals like this black and cream swingy bargain babe (that has pockets!). I saw a few bloggers raving about this under $35 find that comes in 13 colors so I figured… why not? (thanks, peer pressure!). I’m thrilled with the purchase though… a dress like this works for my many lives: work, weekend, mom, all of it. Plus, it’s super light weight, which works when it feels like you’re standing on the sun in Florida (seriously, so hot out).
You can opt for a solid, which would also transform itself for many lives. In all cases, style a dress like this with block wedges as I did, with flip flops, with strappier flats, and even booties as fall approaches. This brand, Socialyte, is newer to me but all their mostly under $40 dresses and tees have great reviews on Nordstrom’s site. Scroll down to see a few swingy finds; they all come in multiple colors and prints, and some have casual/on-trend strappy details that are really cute.
