5 Summer Dresses & What to Wear them With

Happy Memorial Day to my friends South of the border! Nothing says summer like the May long weekend, whether you are celebrating Victoria Day in Canada like we did last weekend, or firing up the BBQ in honour of Memorial Day.

Seeing as the summer season is officially upon us, I put together a little short list, below, of 5 great summer dresses that caught my eye:

The Maxi Dress: This Raquel Allegra Tie Dye dress from Net a Porter is perfect for a day of shopping or a casual evening on the patio.
The Bargain: At only $16, you can't afford not to add this simple tank dress from Joe Fresh to your wardrobe.
Wear Anywhere: I love this muscle tee dress from Rachel Roy. With the right accessories it can take you from a day time BBQ to a night out.
For the Beach: This cute and comfy cover up from J Crew is perfect to throw on over a bikini
For a Special Occasion: There is no doubt that summer is a season of celebrations. I love this dress from Kate Spade's Saturday Collection - you'll look festive without outshining the guest of honour.

So what to wear these great dresses with? A few key pieces below:
1. Keep your melon cool with this sleek panama hat from J. Crew
2. The denim vest is back this season...I like this crisp white version from the Gap.
3. Try a flat but fancy sandal like this laser cut suede pair by Jimmy Choo
4. Add a pop of colour with a coral polish...try Lara's Theme by Deborah Lippmann

 PS - Are you barbecuing tonight? Try these yummy Southwestern Turkey Burgers With Sriracha Lime Spread, paired with a Coconut Ginger Lime Margarita.
