Crème de la Crème | Summer Occasion Dresses

Happy Friday lovelies!  It seems like summer is in full swing with how warm it’s been lately!  I’ve been trying to take at least a bit of time to step outside and enjoy the sun every day (while of course using SPF!) and have been indulging in lots of ice cream, flowy summer dresses, and rosé!  With summer being full of weddings, rooftop/garden parties, and sunset dates, I’ve tried to stock up on some beautiful summer dresses that are versatile enough to work for whatever the event may be: comfortable, flowy, and cool for the day, yet still dressy and flirty enough for night or a special occasion.

Crème de la Crème | Summer Occasion Dresses

Enter this lovely yellow number by Keepsake the Label, which also comes in quite a few other cuts/colors/patterns.  I’m so in love with this dress, especially because it’s so different from most other wedding guest and occasion dresses.  I adore the pleating, beautiful golden yellow hue, and edgy asymmetry.  I also love that it has a very Self-Portrait vibe, while being easier on the wallet!  The ruffles are feminine and flattering, and the diagonal lines are slimming. It’s the perfect summer dress to style through the hot summer months and dress up for whatever is on your calendar.

Crème de la Crème | Summer Occasion Dresses

So, because we all need a few gorgeous and versatile dresses in our summer wardrobes, I rounded up some beautiful ones that I think you guys will love as much as I do!  They’re just the right level of dressy that they transition seamlessly from day to night, and are sure to make you feel just as lovely as they are! Pretty summer dresses just have a way of making me feel beautiful.

    The dress truly is a self portrait one and hearing it’s nice to your wallet is just a great deal. I love the yellow which is not like any yellow I’ve seen in a while. I’ll make sure my mom enters the giveaway too. 🙂 Just have to add your pictures are so pretty here, hun! xx

    You are looking so beautiful in that dress. It’s such a gorgeous piece for the summer, I love the colour and the ruffle details. I definitely need to check out Keepsake the Label for myself too. And I love your mini pierce bag, it has been on my wish list for the longest time :).

    You look gorgeous! i love love love this dress! It’s almost perfection – I wish it had two sleeves because I like to cover my arms. I just checked the site to see if they had a similar one with sleeves and sadly they didn’t 🙁 Ugh.

      The one sleeve definitely isn’t for everyone, I wish they had it in sleeves for you! It really is such a gorgeous dress and print, isn’t it?

    Simply stunning! Girl, how about this Philly weather!? One day it is 90 (bleh, so hot!), and now we are having 60 degree days! Totally agree that these dress options are so perfect for the hot weather, not to mention transition beautifully for the evening- and potentially a temperature drop. I think the ruffle dress is a close contender, along with the LBD, for being one of the best staples in any gal’s closet.

    Love, love, love!

      Seriously! These Philly days are crazy! It’s wonderful to have options that work for many types of weather, and I could easily throw another layer over this for a chilly summer evening. I also looove the ruffles! Thanks for commenting, friend!
