During the summer, midi length dresses are my go-to because they’re comfortable and cool, but also allow me to run and play without ever feeling exposed or uncomfortable. This short sleeve red midi dress from Asos is the perfect summer dress, and it’s under $40!

Midi length dresses are my go-to during the summer and this midi dress with short sleeves is perfect.
When it’s so hot outside, I don’t want layers or denim, but I also want to feel covered up when I’m running and playing with my boys — even when I’m at home. I want to be able to sit on the ground, or lay on the couch and feel comfortable and covered.
And also I’d rather not flash anyone when I bend over at the park, thanks very much. So a midi length dress with short sleeves is a perfect mom uniform for me during the summer.
