Easy, Breezy Summer Dresses

Posted on: August 11, 2013

There is something so easy about just popping on  a dress with an elastic empire waist line and some volume on the bottom that doesn’t hug your body, but floats over it!  

Linking Up with Visible Monday and Watch What I’m Wearing!


With temps rising back into the 90’s this was a perfect dress to wear thrifting.  My first thrifting trip on Saturday in over a month.


I bought this dress before the weigth loss and it is one of the few things that I was able to keep.  A $14.00 purchase from Burlington has gotten a lot of use and I am so not done with this little number…  Every time I put this drees on my husband declares how much he likes it, so bonus there!!!  


Simple accessorizing with metallic ballet flats from Aerosoles and Onyk pendant necklace with a silver cuff  One of these days I’ll get better at photographing my earrings as they are  clear glass balls with black and white desiign and I love them! 

Dear Readers, Today marks the begiinning of  crunch time to get ready for leaving for our Beach house vacation on Friday.   Besides, packing and watching my niece this week, I am trying to pre-write posts for the time away and have to finish that by Tuesday.  Wednesday I will be watching my friend’s daughter while she goes to court so all around a crazy week with me cooking on Thursday for food to bring along… Just realized it would sure help if I had a bunch of these easy, breezy dresses to photograph!   


I am grateful for the weekend and fun I had thrifting with my friend, Hang in there I will post my finds on Friday!

I am grateful that my husband shot three sets of photos for me today!

I am grateful that my husband took my boys to help an elderly couple and the lessons they learn about charity along the way!

Dresses are my favourite garment and this is fabulous! I love the style and the pattern and it suits you so well.
Have a good week packing and enjoy your vacation.

Kind regards from Germany,

Thank you so much for such kind words and sentiments!

Love the dress, such a pretty pattern. Enjoy your vacation!

Thank You! And I will enjoy the first few days with friends and come Monday they will leave and it will be just me and my guys!

This is truly gorgeous, Tracey! I love the cut, I love the color palette, and i love the print. I hope you don’t run yourself ragged getting ready to relax LOL 😉


Thank you! I am good at delegaing and will have help so it wil be ok!

This dress looks perfect for our 90 degree days, and you look lovely. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday!

I’m with you, dresses are most comfortable for summer. This one is a beauty and the color looks lovely on you.

Great dress – I love the way the print was laid out – super flattering!

A very pretty easy, breezy dress. I love this style too. Comfortable and cool.

Dresses are definitely the best when it’s hot and humid out. I can definitely see this taking you into fall with some tights or leggings and some boots. Love it!

hi, you look adorable in this dress. Is it made from several scarves? I love it. Great inspiration. found you via Visible Monday. I’m #51 in Black and Blue (fabric that is) LOL

It isn’t made up of scarves but defintely mimics a scarf print. Thanks for sommenting… off to find you on VM…

Classic little boho dress, sweet on you without gooeyness. Youthful, but not just for the young … great choices! Of course you kept it! Enjoy your vacation!

thank you so much.. I work hard to try to create a balance between my youthful, sassy personality and expreessing it through clothing while still maintaining my age and the experience in life that comes along with it that I fully embrace and am happy with this stage in life.

Love this dress. I recently bought one very similar, and I’ve already worn it several times. I have bought SO many dresses this Summer! You have inspired me so much that my style has actually changed. This time last year I was nearly 30 lb heavier and wore jeans and ugly shorts all the time. Now I live in dresses and look and feel so much better! Thanks Tracey. I owe you so much.

So many of us have been there and I feel so blessed to have you in my blogging life and that the timing of finding my blog coincided with a time for change and taking care of yourself! Your reaching out by commenting is priceless and I owe you so much as well!
