5 Gorgeous Dresses for Summer

Even with the humidity levels down, it’s still extremely hot outside and we’ve found the best way to stay cool is in a dress! As one of our favorite types of clothing, we are big advocates for the dress. They’re easy, they can be dressed up or down, and even if you’re alarm didn’t go off this morning and you got ready in under five minutes, you still look put together!

Here are our five Purple Poppy picks:

1. Sail to Sable Striped Cotton Long Sleeve Tunic

The classic Sail to Sable silhouette that launched the brand – the long sleeve tunic. It’s 100% cotton, features a subtle blue and white stripe pattern, and is machine washable!

Pieces We Love

With each piece of clothing better than the next, it’s hard to pick which pieces we love the most.
