Ode to Summer - Dress Under $25

Summer is ending soon -- luckily it'll hold out a bit longer here in Atlanta. So I can keep my shift dresses and florals going on over the next month or so -- and by then, I'll still keep shifting and floral-ing into winter ... let's be real. I can't give up the simple cut of a shift dress and the grace of a floral print.

This pretty dress from Make Me Chic is only $24 -- and the rest of my accessories are all from Forever21, including the fabulous shoes. Scroll down for links and similar items <3

Olive Tobi Shift Dress

As I frantically spray dry shampoo in my hair, while rolling through my work e-mail inbox, making sure my makeup is covering stress zits, I'm tasked with figuring out what to wear within a 2 minute timeline. This Tobi Swoop In Shift Dress is one piece that solves that problem.

The best thing about a shift dress = comfort, ease, and instantly flattering. I'm in love with the neutral color, the fact he can be dressed up or down, and that the V neckline allows for either a show-stopping necklace or statement earrings. Pairing the dress with these Steve Madden ankle boots gives some character while remaining playful and casual for my Friday at work.

You can shop this dress for ONLY $31 in 5 gorgeous neutrals: Black, Ivory, Navy, Olive, Rose!

I decided to wear a simple cami underneath because I needed some extra coverage in that oh-so-busty area of mine. #REALTALK
