18 Sensible Spring Dresses That Won't Leave You Feeling Bare

modest dresses

We’ve had an exceptionally warm spring in Denver and it seems like people have been using that as an excuse to bust out the too tiny halter tops and not look back. While some may feel comfortable baring all, even on the playground, I like to keep things a little more covered up. Not that that means I have to look frumpy or be sweating under layers all the time, I just don’t want to be constantly wondering if I accidentally flashed the neighborhood. You with me? Here is a round-up of some great spring and summer dresses that will keep you breezy and comfortable without exposing too much.
