12 Casual Dresses for a Seamless Spring to Summer Transition


One of my favorite things about the Spring to Summer seasonal transition is not having to say goodbye to my spring staples. I love that I can repeat many of my beloved Spring pieces by adding a simple summery spin on my favorite looks.

Though many of you know that I’m a denim girl through and through, by the time Summer approaches, you’ll see me bringing casual midis and flowy minis into my day-to-day looks. I’ll be the first to say that denim in 85+ degrees is not flattering on anyone.

This Spring, I’ve been hooked on casual dresses that I can throw a denim jacket over with a pair of slip-ons or a low block heel. It’s such an effortless look that comes together seamlessly, and a style that can so easily be brought right on into Summer.

I styled this striped midi by O’neill with my favorite denim jacket and a pair of slip-on soludo sneaks for Spring. As it gets a bit warmer, I’ll lose the denim jacket and trade the slip-ons for a pair of open toe wedges.




*Tip: Pair an OTS or low-neck dress with a silk neck scarf (love this + this) to add some color!

    All these dresses look so beautiful and perfect for summer when I want something that’s flowy and not too tight! x

    Ahh I’ve been eyeing this dress on your IG but never noticed the high slits. That makes me love it even more – I’m a sucker for a high slit maxi/midi dress or skirt! Also, the color is just gorgeous on you. It makes your hair color pop!
