Your style round-up for affordable spring and summer dresses to shop now.
I know, I know, I just did a big dreamy dress for summer blog post, but I worked on a style share with some ladies on the ‘gram, so I figured I would share these affordable options here, too. And of course I added in a few extras for good measure, because everyone loves a good dress for under $40. When I was preparing for the style share, I immediately went for the floral HM number that I have had my eye on for weeks thanks to our big dress post on The Crystal Press, and opted for the zebra print style as well. BUT, as I realized in the fall, it takes a little longer for H&M fulfillment to reach my front door and I was nervous they wouldn’t get here in time.
SO, on a rare Target run (yes I am not a Target person), I decided to get three dresses and give Target Style a whirl. I was so pleasantly surprised with all three options, that I might be perusing the Target clothing section more often. I will say, that for some crazy reason I got a Medium in the Who What Wear polka dot dress, and I will need to exchange for the small. BUT, I love them all for different reasons.
So, here is a little diddy about each of these dresses & linked a few others at the end. Be sure to check out the reels on instagram, too!
Knox Rose Tie-Dye Dress – I LOVE this piece and have a feeling it is going to get a lot of play this summer. It is a gauzy-material, and has the top like a wrap dress, with a tie, but it isn’t actually a wrap dress, which I like.
Cap Sleeve T-Shirt Dress (below) – This is a great piece for everyday. I got a medium in this one to be a bit oversized, so that I could style it with a belt or other layers to spice things up. It’s $20 and comes in a bunch of colors, so it is a no-brainer if you ask me!
Who What Wear Balloon Sleeve Polka Dot Dress – I thought this dress when I initially put it on was a fail. If you go to my instagram stories / highlights you can see my live reaction to the dress. I ended up loving it after approx 30 seconds, when I discovered the pockets and decided to wear it off the shoulder and size down. When you look at the online photos, they styled this dress buttoned up, with a cinched neck, but that just was not my style so I had to make it my own in order to fall in love with it!

H&M V-Neck Dress — These dresses were worth the wait!! I ordered the floral in small and the zebra in medium, because, idk, I’m a weirdo. Both fit, but I like a little extra room in the zebra for the extra flowiness, but small is gorgeous too. They have v-neck spaghetti strap slips included with adjustable straps. Highly recommend if you can wait the 10ish days 🙂
