The Best Summer Dresses

Dresses are so fun and easy to wear in warmer weather. We thought it might be a good time to talk about why we think dresses are awesome as we officially begin Summer.

We have been mindful and brought a variety of style options into our boutique this year. There has been more of a focus on day-wear than event styles but there is still plenty to choose from. Whether you like classic, funky, romantic, casual or bohemian we have you covered. We try to find styles that are effortless to wear and versatile so you get lots of wear time.

Summer doesn’t last a long time so now is a good time to think about your options. If you’re looking for a dress there are several things to consider...

Effortless & Elegant

Find a dress to wear during the day, add accessories and you’ll be polished so you are ready for any evening event. Feeling and looking elegant is something you can achieve everyday, even if it’s a coffee date with a friend. With the right dress elegance should be effortless.

An easy care cotton/polyamide/elastane blend fabric makes this Angoor shirt-dress wearable. This navy colour beauty can take you everywhere. Of course who doesn’t love pockets!

The faux-wrap Gilmour dress makes getting dressed so easy and it‘s made in Vancouver. The fabric is a 92% rayon bamboo and 8% spandex. Just machine wash and hang to dry.


Colour and patterns often add some fun to getting dressed and is perfect as the weather gets warmer. Stripes and floral are still on trend.

Linen is a classic summer dress. The Frockk designs from Australia are prewashed so they are soft and will not shrink. The stripes and adjustable straps allow for a perfect fit.

This v-neck, Nile maxi-dress has front buttons and a tie at the waist to give a femine touch.


When we are on buying trips we look for details that make a dress unique and only bring in a limited quantity so you feel like the individual you are. When it comes to putting together an outfit less is more so add accessories and see if you are adding or detracting from the dress.

A bright cheerful Johnny Was floral dress with embroidery detail looks amazing. Dress it up with a wrap scarf or throw on a denim jacket for cooler, casual days.

Break the Rules

There are always exceptions to every fashion rule. Don’t worry about breaking a rule, if you feel good and like it wear it! The casual, comfortable footwear that is on trend means you can throw on sneaker style shoes or sandals and enjoy a carefree Summer.

Gabor footwear has just arrived and are well known for unbelievable comfort. They pair beautifully with all your summer dresses.

Our hope is you find getting dressed stress-free and you feel confident. You are unique and your style should be too.
