500 Dresses Of Summer: Very Inspiring

The weather may be more autumnal than summery at the moment but I'm keeping up on this dress series and thought today I'd share with you some dress-spiration of what would feature in 500 Dresses Of Summer series if I were to treat myself to some new dresses.

Love Label Fit and Flare Belted Dress £45

Wimbledon may be over but I love the tennis-y vibe of this dress, the crisp white cotton is perfect for summer and the length would make it great for more formal occasions. I'd wear this with a wide brimmed straw hat and wedge espadrilles.

Sugarhill Boutique Printed Tea Dress £54

I love dresses that nip in at the waist as I find them really flattering on my figure. The bird print on this one is so cute and reminds me of Whistles number which Lauren featured on her blog only it's a lot less expensive. This would be great for summer evenings with nude heels and would carry me through to autumn paired with black opaque tights.

Love Label Open Back Sundress £28

I definitely wear a lot more girly, floral prints during the summer so I love the muted florals of this dress. The back detail is really cute without being bra-exposing and I can imagine it being one of those summer dresses that you can just pair with flat sandals and sunglasses for a no-brainer summer outfit.

What do you think of my dress-spiration?

Which of the smart summer dresses would you choose?
