Summer Dress Week: A Bold, Breezy Sundress

Jul 21, 2021

It’s discombobulating when your favorite maker of work dresses starts stocking casual dresses made of linen and fruit-floral prints.  But, hey, there was a pandemic and no one was going to the office.  So I guess I can’t blame Ann Taylor for trying to pivot.  And, frankly, some of the dresses are pretty cute (especially when they’re on sale for $75).

I’ve decided that this is the summer of bold pieces.  And this red dress from Ann Taylor is breezy, pretty and bold.  I love how light it feels when I wear it, and the floral print is really fun.

Another thing to like about the dress, the straps are wide enough that you can wear a real bra with it.  It’s fantastic.

The dress comes in sizes 0-18.  I typically take a six in AT, I bought a four in this one.  And it also comes in petites.

Need a work dress?  I love the fluttery sleeve detail on this seasonless stretch sheath.  It’s a pretty accent that isn’t too much for work.

    I got this dress a few weeks ago, and agree it is fabulous. My one regret is that it doesn’t have pockets. It’s a swingy enough dress it could totally accommodate them. But I like it enough I may take it to the tailor and have them added!! Agree it runs large.

This week, I fell mindlessly into my phone more than I think I ever have. My screen time went from 3.5 hours per day to 5 hours per day. But the increased eye strain did lead to some good finds. Just going to leave this right here.  (I really need to work on “Didn’t make […]
