Every summer, I search for the perfect summer dress. I’m not a huge fan of shorts, and pants and jeans are usually out of the question on hot days so I love sundresses and find them to be the most versatile summer outfit option. I am constantly on the go–most often with the kids–so I need a dress that can be sporty enough to wear to the pool but can double as a shift for cocktails at home or a casual dinner out. And of course, it has to be comfortable, cute, flattering and stylish, but not too short–I am inevitabley picking up a Matchbox car or magic marker from under a restaurant table or the bottom of the stroller. Not too much to ask of a dress, right?
Well, its official – I have found the perfect summer dress. The Sailor Sailor Skipper Dress by Just Madras fits all of the criteria I mentioned above but is also made of a wonderful, soft, stretchy cotton and is soooo comfortable. I’m talking pajamas comfortable. I love it so much I bought it in multiple colors and I’ve been wearing them non-stop so I have found some fun ways to accessorize them for every outing and occasion!
I’ve had only one criticism of this dress. My mom said she wished it came in a version with sleeves. But guess what?? When I went to the Just Madras web site to do a little looking around for this blog post, it comes in a very cute 3/4 length sleeve version! And to solidify its standing as the perfect summer dress I also found it comes in solid colors AND in adorable little girls sizes!
I think an impromptu summer cocktail party is in order to celebrate. Which one should I wear?!? Cheers to the perfect summer dress!
