Blue Ruffle Hem Dress, White Strap Sandals, Straw Tote Bag, Quay Sunglasses

During the summer, the best pieces are the ones you can just toss on and feel done. No layers, no fuss. This cute little ruffle hem dress from Zappos is one of those pieces.

It’s made of a t-shirt material so it’s soft and super comfy, but the detailing on the hem and the sleeves give it a little something more than a basic tee dress. And it’s super lightweight, but not sheer, so it doesn’t require any layers, but you could tie a top around your waist or add a belt for a completely different look.

All of you should own a great pair of summer slides — easy sandals you can just slide on and off — and these ones with the triple straps are so fun. They’re a little more chic and feminine alternative to Birkenstocks! Zappos always has the best selection of shoes, and with their free one day shipping I can find a pair and have them at my door literally the next day. Best thing ever.

This look is also really easy to dress up. Replace your flat sandals with a pair of heeled sandals or wedges, exchange your big day bag with a smaller crossbody bag, and add a leather or denim jacket for cooler evening temps, and you’re ready for an evening out with friends, or date night with your guy!
