Dressing in summer should be light, breezy and easy, and that's why I love this gingham dress from CeCe. It's perfect for enduring the heat and humidity in Atlanta, and little details like the flutter sleeves and tailored fit mean it works equally well for both a day at work or a weekend adventure.
Best of all, this dress is very reasonably priced; I think I scored mine for about $35 from Lord & Taylor during a clearance sale. The store may still have a few sizes left!
Remember that the CeCe brand runs a bit large; I'm wearing a size two for reference.
