In the summer it is hard to beat throwing your hair up into a ponytail and tossing on a simple sundress and calling it a day when it comes to picking out your outfit. While shorts and a casual tee are also great they often require more effort than a dress would since with a dress you're only choosing one piece yet it gives the allusion of looking incredibly put together. Over the years I have come to realize just how valuable quick and easy dresses are to have as a staple in your closet (I blame that on student teaching) and embroidered ones are my absolute favorite.
I have been gravitating towards embroidered pieces when shopping this summer and have found so many pieces worth sharing (and so many are less expensive than you'd think)! This blue and white embroidered number was under $30 from Forever 21 of all places and reminded me of one I had previously seen on Shopbop's site. Paired with some tan sandals and a tan tote this makes for the easiest outfit that will be on repeat all summer long.
Unfortunately, I think this exact dress has sold out since I purchased it a few weeks ago (if you're near a F21 you may want to check in stores) but I took that as a mission to find similar embroidered frocks for y'all to shop. I have linked the page where this dress was found incase it is re-stocked soon but in the meantime enjoy some of these pieces!
