the best part about summer

What’s the Zeal? Dress in Flower Box There is nothing that makes me happier than a pretty dress. Over the last few years, I finally embraced that dresses really are the best part about summer - I used to really dislike summer just because I felt I never had anything to wear, and then as my closet slowly filled up with more dresses, the less I hated summer. The more pretty details, patterns, or colors, the better!

When given the opportunity to pick out a dress from ModCloth recently, I was compelled to try this beautiful floral number. I have so many good casual dresses, but lack ones that are a bit dressier. The one I'm wearing is called Dress in a Flower box, which is adorable, and very fitting. I now own several items from ModCloth, and one of my favorite things about their brand as a whole is that they have extended sizing in so many of their items - not all of us fit in S / M / L sizes, so it's really great to have more options in pieces we feel comfortable in!

*a note on sizing: I'm wearing a large, and feel it runs just a bit small in the chest, so if you are between sizes, I would suggest sizing up!

From more casual summer clothes (did you see the baseball shoes?! makes me miss going to Brewers games every summer) to pretty patterned dresses to this summer's trends, ModCloth has a ton of great options. Below are ten of my favorites for dressier events, from bridal showers to graduations to weddings. My favorite is the elegant navy dress - it's definitely one of those timeless pieces you'll wear for years!
