Dresses for the Dog Days of Summer

 Even though I'm swooning over gorgeous jewel tones for fall and eagerly await tartan season, the temperatures dictate another plan. Today marked my first official day back at school and temperatures hit 100 degrees. Working in a large school building where temperatures are difficult to maintain, especially with lots of warm bodies, poses a challenge when it is so hot. 

A maxi dress keeps me cool on the hottest day, but offers versatality with a jean jacket or simple cardigan if the air conditioning works overtime. 

Today as part of our professional development team building, we participated in a scavenger hunt that had us (literally) running from the baseball field, to the press box, to the gym, and a myriad of other places. Being slightly competitive in nature, we completed all of the tasks, but I looked slightly "wilted" and crashed immediately after arriving at my house.

I curated a list of some of my favorite maxi and midi dresses to help you enjoy the final dog days of summer in style. Best of all, all of these dresses are on sale right now; and some are quite a steal. 

Gingham dresses always top my list. Timeless in style, you'll reach for these dresses season after season. The pink gingham dress shines with flirty ruffles and a fun slit in the front. The blue gingham dress features a halter style top and semi-ombre type effect with several shades of blue. I love everything about the ruffled wrap dress with the tie detail in the back, too.

If you're saving most of your clothing budget for fall shopping, don't despair. These options are super friendly on your wallet. The sky blue dress is a steal at only $20 and the other blue dress is an additional 50% off of the regular price right now.
