The Find: My Favorite Summer Dresses

May 12, 2021

These Daily Ritual dresses are an item I feel like I promote too much.  But they’re just that good.

I came back from Montana one size bigger.  I needed to develop a plan for getting back in shape after Session, and I needed to figure out how I would dress in the interim.  So I bought four Daily Ritual dresses in the bigger sizes and called it a day.  I spent less than $125, and will be good to go until I can fit into my other clothes again.  Problem solved.

If you’re going to buy a dress (or dresses) from Daily Ritual, I recommend sticking to their Lived In line.  The cotton is a good weight.  They’re not sheer.  And they wash and wear beautifully.

This short sleeve maxi dress is my go to.  The side vents keep it cool even on hot days.  I layer on a casual jacket in chilly weather.  It’s the easiest dress in the world.

I also picked up one of their shorter roll-sleeve dresses and a relaxed-fit crewneck dress.  I plan to wear these with sneakers or sandals.  I can dress them up with a long necklace or layer on a long cardigan for sitting around my office.

If you need basic t-shirt dresses for summer that won’t break the bank, these are the ones to choose.  I love them.  I would say I own too many of them, but what is too many when you wear them all the time?

    Amen. These are the best summer dresses out there. I have “too many” but I literally don’t want to wear anything else. 🙂

    I lived in two of these for my pandemic summer last summer (alternated with linen cotton joggers). They have held up beautifully and I am now mixing in with other maxi dresses for my second covid summer at home.

    Has anyone had luck with these on a postpartum body/with a belly pooch? I would love these to work but I’m afraid they’re just going to highlight the parts I prefer not to.

    I bought three of the maxi-dresses based on your recommendation. I’m going back for three more. They’re great!

    Ugh I wish these came in petite sizes for those of us who are short! Anyone have any recommendations?

What I’m Really Buying on Prime Day

I will probably not open Instagram for the next two days. The Prime Day madness is just too thick. 90% of the items being promoted are things that I’ll throw away in two months (or less). But there are a handful of things I will use and are grateful to grab at a discount, here […]
