20+ Casual Summer Dresses Under $30

Happy Wednesday Friends! While I was shopping for our trip this weekend, I found SO many cute, affordable dresses! A few weeks ago, I asked you all what you were shopping for and a ton of you said casual Spring/Summer dresses! Considering, we can wear dresses 3-4 months out of the year, I always opt for affordable options. So, I’ve rounded up a ton of really cute dresses under $30 today! Most of them ship free or have free in store pick up!

Also, as I was browsing, I noticed that Target is having a huge sale on their dresses for Mother’s day! I’m rounding up a few of my Target staple favorites on stories today too, so stay tuned!

I also recently updated my Spring top roundup here with some new finds! And, if you’re looking for Spring/Summer event wear you can find a ton of affordable outfits here! I even found items for the bride-to-be!

After a brief hiatus, I’m back!

Last week, I traveled back to Madison for one of my best friend’s bachelorette parties. I spent an extra few days catching up with my parents and old friends too! It was so nice to catch up with everyone but went way too quickly!! When I got back, I decided to take a few days “off” to recoup since I haven’t taken any time truly off in months. It felt so good to get that necessary me-time in!

And, now that I’m back from vacay mode, the Memorial Day Weekend sales are in full swing!

Dress | Sandals | Jean Jacket | Backpack | Bracelets | Ring | Lipstick in “Caramello”

This tank dress from LOFT is on sale 40% off making it right over $41! It’s from their Lou & Grey Signaturesoft line, which rarely goes on sale so I’m excited to share it with you all!! I’ve owned several things from this line, and they’re literally the softest pieces of clothing I own. This casual dress does not disappoint!! The straps are thick enough to wear the dress on its own to work during the summer, but it’s casual enough to wear on the weekend as well. It doesn’t come in petite sizes, but it falls right above my knees, which is perfect for me! I’ve seen it on taller women, and it’s still long enough to be appropriate for them too (not sure if LOFT even sells anything that would be considered inappropriate lol!). I got an XS and feel it fits true to size.

Like I said, you can wear this dress on its own or layer it like I did here. It’s super cute under a jean jacket (also on sale) and looks good with a jean jacket tied around your waist. I also think it would be super cute with a flannel tied around your waist! Pro-tip: tying a belt, jacket etc around your waist can add shape to a shift dress like this if you think it looks too “oversized” on you!


LOFT is having a 40% off site wide sale for Memorial Day with code “LONGWKND” – Here are some of my top picks!

The Most Flattering Dress Styled 4 Ways

People often ask me how I afford to buy all the clothes I style for the blog and Instagram because it seems like I’m always wearing something new. Let me clue you in on a secret! I spend less than $200 a month on clothes/pieces for the blog. I think I’ve mentioned before that I’m married to the world’s most frugal person. But even more so, I’ve learned the value of restyling pieces I own to make them work for multiple seasons.

As a real-life girl, with a real-life budget, I strategically buy items I know I can wear again because that’s reality, right? And, I’m clearly not the only one who lives like this. Last week, I took an Instagram poll asking if you guys prefer to see new outfits or key pieces restyled different ways. 100% requested key pieces restyled, and I’m happy to say we are of the same mind!

So, I will continue to show pieces that are worth purchasing but can be restyled so you never get tired of them! The ones you see me wear once or twice still hang in my closet, but I wear them when I’m out experiencing life outside of the internet! And a little tip, plan your outfits 1-2 weeks out. Excessive? Maybe! But it’ll help you restyle those key pieces so you don’t feel like you’re re-wearing the same items, the same way! It also saves you time and stress in the morning when you’ve pressed snooze 5 times and are running out the door!

This all brings me to this dress from Nordstrom that’s an instant closet staple. It’s a body-con style but the ruching on the side makes it flattering on any body type because it’s instantly slimming (I promise!). It’s under $60 and comes in 6+ colors. It’s sleeveless but also comes in a long-sleeved version here. Both versions are extremely versatile making this dress easy to style up or down for virtually any occasion. I got this dress in black as it’ll be most versatile throughout the seasons. However, there are a lot of pretty pastels that are great for Spring and Summer too. I’m wearing an XS here, and it fits TTS. Plus, as you may have guessed, this dress works for both regulars and petties (wooo!!). Today, I’m sharing 4 ways you can style this dress for a quick and easy go-to outfit!

Styled with a denim jacket, this dress is perfect for a lunch date. You could wear this out for an afternoon with your girlfriends or a lunch date with your guy! The denim jacket downplays the shape of the dress to make it more casual. I’m wearing knee-high boots here but you could easily wear booties or your favorite sandals to make it even more casual.

Paired with a suede jacket or blazer, this dress is perfect for the office! It falls right above the knees so isn’t too short. It also has thicker straps so you don’t have to worry about breaking any dress codes! Paired with your favorite heels, this would be the perfect work outfit (and yes, it was freezing so I did not change my shoes as planned! 😋)

If you’re going out with that special someone or the girls, styling this dress with a cardigan and boots/booties or heels makes for a casual date night outfit. I opted for a dark green cardigan here, but you could wear virtually any color cardigan given the neutral color of the dress.

Wearing just the dress with a necklace would be great for a night out. It’s chic yet comfortable enough to wear for a long time. Plus, the neckline allows you to wear any style of necklace, which means you can constantly transform the look of the dress! Paired with knee-high boots this dress is ready for a night out!

I hope everyone is having a good Valentine’s! Remember to show love to yourself today regardless if you have a significant other or not! You deserve it! 💗

Kev has convinced me to get wings for our night in tonight and then go on a date night Friday.  Definitely not gonna argue with two date nights in one week! Any thoughts on where we should go Friday?

Have a great night everyone!
