How to stay cool in the summer for under $20

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have heard that I’m STILL waiting for my Nordstrom packages to arrive.  Somehow my very large order got lost in the midst of all the chaos – so much for staying up until 3 am to order everything before it sells out. It’s supposed to arrive this week so I’ll have reviews up as soon as I can.  I’ll be stalking UPS and you’ll find me peering out my window (lol).  Hopefully things are still in stock once I get the post up.  Let’s take a break from the sale madness and talk about these fun summer prints – all under $20! Yes, under $20!

Dress: c/o Floral off the shoulder dress (size XS) | Purse: JADEtribe pom pom basket bag (cheaper dupe HERE) | Cuff: c/o Kendra Scott

It’s hard to believe this dress is only $16!  Yes $16. It fits perfectly with no alterations.  The length hits me right at the knees and great for petite gals. It’s fitted but not too tight and very flattering. The floral print is gorgeous and I love the flounce layered neckline – makes it extra feminine.  Anything that is nursing friendly and affordable is a win win for me.  Love and would recommend.  Also available in a white floral color.  I just ordered this scalloped trim bardot dress (also $16) – so excited for it to arrive!  According to the online measurements, it should fit similar to the one I’m wearing above.

Dress: c/o SheIn Lemon print dress (size XS) | Purse: c/o Boho Peach picnic basket bag | Sandals: c/o Vince Camuto leddy wedge sandals

I love anything lemon print and this dress is SO cute however, it didn’t fit as well as I had hoped. Sizing runs big and looks great from the front but only if you cinch the criss cross back as tight as possible which then results in a not so pretty backside.  I adore the style of the front so much and was definitely bummed it didn’t work out. If I wear a cardigan and cover the back, it could work.  It’s currently sold out but you can click HERE for other cute dresses.

Dress: c/o Palm print cami dress (xs, comes in navy HERE and another palm print HERE ) |Purse: c/o Boho Peach picnic basket bag | Cuff: c/o Kendra Scott | Watch: c/o kate spade new york | Sunglasses: Tory Burch | Earrings: kate spade new york (similar HERE) | Nail polish: Acquarella (similar HERE)

I really didn’t have any expectations about this dress.  I’ve never found a cami dress that fit or looked half decent on me.  Typically these style dresses do NOT look right on me for some strange reason.  Not sure what it is but they just remind me of lingerie (lol).

I fell in love with the simple palm print and colors that I was willing to take a chance.  Initially when I first got it, I thought to myself there is no way this will look good on me.  Once I tried it on, I really liked it!  It’s much looser than my usual style and you have to wear a strapless bra (recommend THIS ONE).  Sizing runs true to size and it’s slightly low cut but not too revealing. You may need to take up the straps a little bit if you want more coverage.  This can double as a beach cover up and would be an adorable vacation dress. It’s lined and not see through.  Material is pretty decent and I can’t complain since it’s only $15.

Here are some other items I’ll be reviewing soon:

Dress: c/o Palm print cami dress (xs, comes in navy HERE and another palm print HERE ) | Sandals: Marc Fisher | Purse: JADEtribe pom pom basket bag | Hat: c/o Tuckernuck packable bow hat
