7 Chic Dress and Sandal Trends I'm Thrilled About

More than ever, I'm excited about fashion's ability to boost my mood and provide a respite from the doom-and-gloom that dominates the news cycle. Maybe it's the Libra in me, but my clothing purchases right now are very optimistic. I'm buying fun summer dresses and sandals that have me hoping for occasions to wear them in the future, but for now, I'll settle on walking my dog in my new dress. 

I know it's certainly not a new trend, but I think the selection of puff-sleeve dresses right now is better than ever. Our favorite affordable retailers like H&M, Topshop, and & Other Stories sure know how to make mean puff sleeves on everything from midis to maxis. As for sandals, I have my eye on the pastel and buckle trends, which are luckily available at a range of different prices. Scroll down to shop my favorite dress and sandal trends for summer 2020.
