Haul ~ Affordable Spring/Summer Dresses!

When I say affordable, I kid you not. All of these dresses came from Target, Kohl's and Old Navy! (some were on sale) I often find I'm hit or miss with all of these stores as far as fashion goes. Each year it seems I'm always on the hunt for new spring/summer dresses. I love wearing them because they're easy and cute at the same time. Plus that, it gets really hot here in the South and sometimes a dress is just more comfortable than shorts. And to add to that, I don't always love the way I look in shorts. So, below are some of my new finds and how I'd possibly style them. I didn't want to actually show them on myself. Thought I'd save those for future outfit of the day (OOTD) posts. :)

Kohl's - (size medium) It was love at first sight with this one! It looks even better on. Very flattering faux wrap style. It's busy so I would just pair with earrings and probably navy heels or wedges and cute clutch. Find it here
Kohl's - (size 8) I thought this was a very simple but cute dress that could be worn to all sorts of events. Would look great with bright coral jewelry or add a bright cardigan. This is on my list to possibly wear this weekend to the Derby Days event. Buy it here
*Update* I returned this after it just sat in my closet
Target - (size small) I've seen this for months but kept passing it by. This style comes in several patterns and color combos. There are two color-block ones that are awesome but I thought this gray/black color would get more wear and not be out of style as fast. I'd either wear as is or pair a bright belt in red or yellow. Buy it here
Old Navy -  (size small) This is actually a bright true red in person. The camera makes it a tad orange. This fits so nice and is one of my favorite styles with the elastic waist. I think dresses like that drape nice and are flattering. I show this with a leopard belt but you could also wear a wider tan or brown, anything really. I'd wear this style of belt with heels and a more casual belt with wedges. I ordered it online (that's why it's so wrinkled) here.
Target - (size small) This didn't look like much on the hanger but I gave it a try anyway. I'm glad I did. It's so flattering on! I have a similar wrap style like this from Loft and I actually like this one better! I paired it with a green belt because I knew right away that's how I wanted to style it. The belt is also from Target. You could do so much with this dress. Wear it with heels and a cardigan to work or church. Wear it to a wedding or pair with a wider, more casual belt and wedges. It comes in several colors. Buy it here.

Kohl's - (size small) I bought this in the store, liked it so much that I went back to buy in the pink stripe. Had to order online here.  I wore this the other day with a pink cardigan. Pushed the sleeves to my elbow and put on some navy sandals. I was comfy but still cute.
