Easy Dresses to Throw On for Work This Summer

One of the very first things I do when I wake up in the morning is check the weather. The temperature is one the largest determinants of what I’ll wear for the day, and because we’re entering those warm summer months, it’s time to take into consideration items that not only keep you cool and breezy, but are also appropriate for the office.

This task can often feel like a daily dilemma, but the best answer is usually a breathable dress. You don’t have to add on layers, it can be easily accessorized, and the pickings are practically endless! If you’re on board, see below to shop my favorites of the moment.
