Spring is here and Summer is just around the corner which meeaaannss… it’s time to pull out all your fav warm-weather dresses! Woo-hoo!
PB&J Boutique is awfully fond of any kind of dress – casual, formal, long, short – you name it! And with the addition of some of our special new arrivals, we have close to 200 dresses in our boutique – which we absolutely LOVE because we’re covered for any and all occasions – and you sunshines can be too!!
A common struggle for us and some of our most frequent customers is finding the perfect dress for any particular occasion. Why is it so difficult to find a dress for a wedding and why can’t I wear it on Easter, too??! I know. Boo. But we’re here to help!
The ladies at PB&J have come up with 6 common summer events that usually call for a dress and listed a few ideas for what to wear and how to style them for each occasion. So, here’s some inspo for any of you lovelies that are attending one (or all) of these six get-togethers this summer and need a little help!
- Graduation Parties (& ideas for our lovely graduates, too!)
- Baby/Bridal Shower
- Mother’s Day
- Dinner & drinks with friends/date night
Let’s start with weddings. So fun. So exciting. SO hard to find an outfit. Right? But there’s hope! We’ve been gravitating towards wrap dresses so much for this season because they’re so on trend and so easy to wear. Plus, you can dress these up and down and, for lack of better words, you can adjust the modesty to your own comfort – which is awesome for weddings.
We’re LOVING this new wrap dress by Auguste The Label for its color and super cozy material – just look at how darling!! We paired this with a super cute pair of tassel earrings and minimal accessories otherwise. Just throw on a pair of heels or cute sandals, grab a clutch and you’re set to dance your booty off all night!
Another cute wrap number we’ve been loving is this new arrival by Knot Sisters. We think the feathers add such a feminine, summery touch. Would look adorable paired with some nude heels and an up-do.
These weddings won’t know whats coming!!
The next event is Graduation/Graduation Parties. These are a little more versatile because these parties can range so far from casual to formal. So here’s two that are pretty much right in the middle that can be dressed up or down.
This is such a perfect grad look featuring another adorable dress by Knot Sisters and some of our favorite new shoes by Seychelles. We love this one because it’s so flattering and trendy. You can wear some simple white sneakers and a pony for a more casual look or pair it with these platform wedges and some curls and dress it up a bit. It would also look so cute under a graduation gown – which is what we’re goin’ for, of course!
The next look is a little more formal just on it’s own – a super sweet dress by En Creme that’s really on-trend with it’s shoulder cutouts and bright floral pattern. Add a cute pair of heels or wedges and your fav hair style and you’re so set. We’d recommend keeping the jewelry minimal with this look – a few rings or a dainty necklace would pull it all together perfectly! And would definitely look adorable on any grad!
Next is Baby and Bridal showers. We like to go for the dainty and delicate with these outfits. Which for us means – pastels, florals and ruffles, oh my! Here’s our first look:
Featuring another Auguste The Label favorite – the Daphne Crop Sleeve Wrap Mini dress! This is a go-to for us ladies at PB&J because its short and summery, and SO on-trend. This can be worn with or without a cami underneath (this one is one of our favs by M Rena) depending on the event and what you’re comfortable with! We love it paired with these wedges by Seychelles and some of our favorite Quay Sunglasses.
This next look is based around such a beautiful dress by the brand Easel. We love this look for a more formal party or if you’re the bride/mommy-to-be because it definitely steels the show! Paired with a simple pair of nude sandals or heels and some light jewelry and you’re so ready to celebrate!
Another occasion coming up so so soon, is Mother’s Day!! Can you believe how fast this year has gone?? No matter how you celebrate, a dress can always make your day a little sweeter, but because mother’s day is often celebrated around family and grandparents, we like to go for something a little more subtle! Here’s some of our quiet but super cute pieces for this Spring and Summer.
This first dress is a newbie by Knot Sisters. We love the way it fits and how much it can be adjusted to fit your own personal style. Because its a little more on the basic side of the spectrum, you can pair it with any kind of accessories and shoes that suit you. And because mother’s day doesn’t always call for something super formal, We’d have fun dressing it down with a scarf and a pair of comfy sneakers.
This look is so cute, especially if it’s a little chillier where you live. We love maxi dresses sooo much, and this one is a fav by STILLWATER. It’d be so cute paired with some sandals or little booties. Even add a statement necklace and your favorite sunnies and you’re ready as ever!
Next is Brunch! And if you’re anything like us girls at PB&J, you take your brunch very seriously. Perfect place. Perfect insta picture of your mimosa…and the PERFECT outfit! That being said, we SO have you covered in this department.
First is this adorable romper by Knot Sisters that we can’t get enough of. I know, I know, its not a dress. But it fits so comfortably and flows just like a dress would, so no worries to be had, ladies!! It’s so cute with some booties or a pair of wedges and some sunglasses to accessorize. 10/10 all around, people.
Next is this adorable bell sleeved dress by Umgee. We love this brand because it’s so affordable, but also because of it’s super chill boho vibe that’s hard to pass up! This look is so effortless and still so put together and would look so cute with some strappy sandals or your favorite booties.
The final event is a little more geared towards our nightlife ladies! The Dinner/Drinks with friends! Whether it’s to celebrate a birthday or catch up with old friends, we all love a night to get dressed up and go out on the town. The stressful part though, is always finding something to wear. Fear no longer, birdies!! Here’s our fav looks:
This is one of our newest dresses by STILLWATER. Perfect for going out on the town and would be so cute worn with or without the cami underneath. We loved how it looked paired by these fierce booties by Seychelles and some statement earrings.
This next look is so outgoing and fun with the polka dots and the unique neckline. The ruffles scream flirty – which would be perfect worn on a first date, also! Paired with some simple black heels or booties and an up-do would have you looking so put together! Just don’t forget the hairspray ;).
Thank you so much for reading, we so hope this was beneficial for you ladies!
