Keep Your Cool - Chic Dresses for Outdoor Parties

Summer is in full swing, so your calendar is likely filling up with hot dates, shopping sprees, and lots of fun, outdoor parties, right? I don't know about you, but to me, there's not much better than a sun-drenched day with friends spent relaxing outdoors, sipping iced tea (or margaritas) and grilling out. For your next BBQ party, keep your cool with some super chic, lightweight summer dresses, like these:


Urban Outfitters (image and item) - Lux Tropical Ruffle Tube Dress


Betsey Johnson (image and item) - Carribean Stripe Linen Dress w/ Pockets


Lilly Pulitzer 'Mallory' Dress (image and item Nordstrom.com)

Pair dresses with
pretty metallic flip flops like these by J Crew, or try some girly espadrilles to add some height and summer style to your look.

Oh my gosh, I have a dress from Forever 21 that is a complete knock off of that Betsy J. dress. I had no idea!

Forever 21 does love their knock-offs, don't they? I see lots on ShopDiary.com .

The blue one's a beautiful shade! It's so summery.
