How was everyone’s weekend? I’m finally recovering from my cough last week. However, I still have the lingering cough. Fortunately, my doctors don’t think it is anything serious. Some of you asked about why I was nervous about my cough well that was one of the things my oncologist says to look out for. If the cough continues to linger it could be a sign of metastatic cancer. So the anxiety was a little high. I’m prescribed some meds and hopefully the cough will clear up in a few days!
When it comes to summer, without a doubt my wardrobe converts into blue and white (aside from the trending color. This year it’s yellow and I am loving it!). The color combination blue and white has that cooling and refreshing look to it. It kind of reminds me of the ocean and for some reason I associate the ocean with the summertime. So any time I pick out a new outfit, I naturally gravitate towards blue and white colors.
Now that the heat is on, I’ve been wearing dresses nonstop and you bet I am wearing blue and white! How cute is this striped off the shoulder dress I scored from Alice & Wonder. Unfortunately, it is not available online but if you’re in Chicago, Alice & Wonder opened up a store in the Lincoln Park neighborhood and this dress is definitely there plus many more cute things. It is kinda dangerous that the store is so close by!
Top 8 Blue and White Summer Dresses
Anyways, I thought I’d share with you guys my favorite blue and white dresses for the summer. I will warn you that some may not actually be dresses but jumpsuits. However, I couldn’t resist sharing them! They have the perfect summer look and they’re just so cute! Most of the dresses I’m into are under $100 with a few that are around $120.
1. Chambray Wide-Leg Jumpsuit ($126)
I know this isn’t a dress, but like I mentioned above it is so cute for the summer! I love the cut-out detail and the wide-leg style gives it an appearance that it could be a dress.
2. Lace-Up Shift Dress ($47.50)
Shift dresses are a summer classic style and the lace up details just gives the dress a slight edge.
3. Button-Up Mini dress ($58)
This dress is just darling! I love the vertical stripes and sweetheart neckline. It seems like a perfect outfit for a day at the park or for grabbing a soft serve ice cream cone with sprinkles.
4. Tie-Front Midi Dress ($55)
Tie-Front dresses are trending right now and I definitely want to try this trend out for the summer!
5. Ruffle Embroidery Maxi Dress ($24.95)
My mom got me this maxi dress and I can’t wait to wear it. This dress is so light and airy and so comfortable!
6. Striped Embroidered Off the Shoulder ($43.73)
This dress kind of resembles the dress I am wearing in this post. It has the stripes and embroidery, and off the shoulder style. Gosh, I can’t get enough of off the shoulders!
7. Embroidered Midi Dress ($46.80)
Another embroidery dress. I guess I am just really into embroidery too!
8. Poplin Wrap Jumpsuit ($134.40)
Here’s another jumpsuit. Again it has the wide-leg style that emulates a dress and the wrap style is so chic!
So switching gears over here. In about a month or so, Nordstrom will be having another HUGE sale. This sale is known as the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I look forward to this sale because Nordstrom releases their Fall pieces and has a huge markdown on them during the Anniversary Sale.
