Since we weren't able to properly enjoy spring due to the current state of the world, I am hoping and praying that come summer, things will be at least a little bit back to normal. The keyword here is "hoping," so in the spirit of positivity, I thought it would be fun to do a little casual summer dress shopping. While I can't show off any of the frocks I end up purchasing from this list anytime soon, I can at least daydream about them, and I thought maybe you would like to join me.

Ahead, I have rounded up the 25 casual summer dresses I am eyeing for the upcoming season—ones I plan on purchasing as soon as I finish writing this story. From floral minis to backless midis, the selection ahead has enough variety to outfit any potential summer activity that comes your way. Since we aren't wearing much other than sweats and leggings right now, take this time to remember what your wardrobe used to look like and set your sights on only good things to come.
