10 Spring & Summer Dresses You’ll Live in All Season

Pants are overrated. Who needs restricting denim and tight-button flies? When spring weather hits, I’m a dresses-only kind of girl. I like to feel the air on my legs and enjoy the sunshine on my SPF’d skin, which is why I live in lightweight, feminine spring and summer dresses when the weather warms up and adore every easy-breezy moment.

While I’m confident my collection of sundresses, maxi dresses and tee-shirt dresses already rivals that of any department store, I’ll always make room for one (or 10) more in my curated closet. And since I want to feel especially casual, comfortable and cool this season as I relax in my yard and lounge on the deck, I’ve selected a few favorites that fit the bill – without racking up a majorly expensive one!

If you, too, are excited to transition to dresses as the weather warms up, look no further; I’ve done the browsing for you! Just be sure to shop with Rakuen, so you can earn Cash Back on all your purchases — even if you’re buying jeans.

    Cute dresses, BUT I am an elementary Art teacher & I would hate to spend upwards of $80+ just to end up with paint on them!
