I will likely live and die in a prairie dress. It’s my favorite thing to throw on and always super comfortable. These, Sleeper linen dresses made a big debut a few years ago. It always seemed like they were the go-to choice for baby showers, bridal showers, and events. This one with its ruched bodice and puff sleeves is one of my favorites in my dress rotation. I wear it all the time – for lunches, even just working from home, to my friend’s wedding rehearsal recently, and this past weekend away in the country for church, then swapped my sandals for wellies on an afternoon country walk. I managed to find a few of this ‘Atlanta’ style dress on sale, linked below, and in a variety of other colors/patterns.
When it comes to summer dresses, I’m not too fussy about having the newest in season. At the end of the day, a floral dress is a floral dress so try to buy when I find on them sale and also look for brands like Sleeper that are made of good quality. My shopping tip would be to buy this time of the year during the end of summer sales or as crazy as it seems, during November Black Friday/After Christmas Sales as they’re usually heavily discounted when considered ‘out of season’. That’s usually when I purchase my Zimmermann 75%+ off and have something to look forward to wear when the summer days are behind us!
Hope you’re enjoying the last few weeks of summer! I can’t believe we’re almost into September! xx
