Here were the prompts for the first week of June:

I didn't even know where to start because I love all of these but I'm lazy so I decided to focus on two of my summer go-tos (see Deena's here) which also encompass the maxi dress and the fun flats!

Summer Go-To #1: Dresses

As a mom, my summer must-haves have to be easy and effortless. I actually LOVE summer dresses and I think you should too. They are lightweight, usually flattering and you don't have to choose pants (score!). When I was pregnant last summer, I gravitated toward maxi dresses and now that I'm running around after two littles, I like maxi dresses or to-the-knee summer frocks. 

Here are a few that are in rotation in my closet and why I think they're great:

Bathing suit cover-up? CHECK!
Summer must-haves? This dress (comfy, cool and flattering)... oh and Deena!
High quality photography as always... This one feels like sweatpants... and I paid $16 for this!

I've talked about it before, but this Pink Blush maxi is so versatile!

I've had really good luck at the Banana Republic Factory Store for cute and affordable dresses. We're talking under $20 and great fitting options.

Summer Dress and Accessories
I've been wearing this dress non stop with these sandals and this purse.

Which brings me to my second go-to summer item...
Summer Go-To #2: Sandals and Flats

Even though I love shoes, in the summer, I tend to live in one or two pairs of footwear. This summer, I'm living in these sandals from Aldo.

These Aldo Sandals rock my world daily.

I am also loving these flats I found on a KILLER sale online at Lulus.
Steve Madden Taylerr Flats in Yellow
Both of these footwear options pair well with just about everything and I like how neutral they are (yes, I think yellow is neutral). I've been really drawn to neutral accessories lately both in shoes and in purses

So there you have it! Those are my summer go-tos, fave flats and heck, even a maxi dress!

What are your favourite summer outfit go-tos? 
Don't forget to check out this week's recap on the Blended Blog!

Next week's prompts look fun and it's my goal to try to get a selfie for each one. We'll see how that goes... 

Here they are. You in?
