The semester is finally over which calls for a celebration! What better way is there to celebrate than to have brunch on a lovely Sunday afternoon? The weather in New York City has been amazingly warm which is perfect for summer dresses! Summer dresses are comfortable, light and incredibly easy to wear. They are definitely my go-to piece during the warm summer months, because with just a few accessories, you can really have a well put-together outfit. They can also be easily dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

I spotted this Fashionista post-brunch wearing a light blue pleated dress with criss-cross back straps. She wears white wedges to complement her dress and a delicate silver bracelet, which gives her look a soft and feminine vibe. The short length of the dress, paired with the back straps, shows enough skin to make the entire outfit look playful.

Another reason why flowy summer dresses are my favorite? They are very good at hiding that post-brunch belly! There is nothing wrong with a cute belly at all, but dresses are great if you are concerned about it. Anyone can eat all the brunch they want and look cute while doing it. It sounds like a win-win situation to me! Just be careful not to stain your light-colored outfit.

One Simple Change: Going to run errands after brunch? Simply switch the wedges for comfortable sneakers and layer on a light flowy cardigan over just in case it gets chillier at night.
