that was the view outside of my office yesterday... beautiful, but i'm ready for summer.

after working in boston for the majority of 2013 and watching the entire madmen series, i realized how netflix can suck the life out of you be so awesomely addicting! between the weather being a winter wonderland outside and me starting season 4 of gossip girl (where blair and serena are in paris for the summer), i'm desperately longing for summer.  all of their cute dresses and outdoor dining and riding with boys on vespas makes me want to skip right through the rest of winter and spring and go right to summer (who needs to celebrate a 27th birthday anyways?)

luckily for us, stores are already putting summertime dresses on the racks (err, on their websites?)

here are my top picks for dresses, all under $50!

5 under $50: summertime dresses
Dress #1 : i'm pretty obsessed with shirtdresses, and this one has the flattering A-line just about every girl needs.

Dress #2 : i picked up a heather gray dress with the same cut last year at nordstrom rack and it's super comfy and super flattering and figure-forgiving.

Dress #3 : i love the bright colors, and i'm such a sucker for sleeveless sheer-top dresses!

Dress #4 : what a classic dress. toss on a big floppy hat and flip flops for summer, or pair with bright tights and a cardigan for winter.

Dress #5 : hung loves peter pan collars, so this one easily made the list ;)

for now though, stay warm and dry, summer will be here soon!


p.s. all of the featured dresses are from modcloth.com . i'm fairly obsessed with that site right now.
