Looking For A Great Summer Dress?

What do you look for in a great summer dress?

Me, I look for the right hem line (nothing shorter than two inches above the knee–I have subway seats to sit on, you understand), a nice, breathable fabric, and a color or pattern that excites me. It has to be durable for afternoons at the playground and morning errands and afternoon naps in between. And sometimes I’d like for it to make it to church with me and still let me feel like a lady. It’s a tall order!

I’ve done some scouring and have found a few perfect summer dresses, should you share my summer dress requirements. They’re after the jump!
