I’m so excited to share with you four dressy summer looks I put together from my shopping trip to Burlington. As I mentioned last month, I’m part of the Burlington Style Squad™ along with nine other fashion and lifestyle influencers. I can’t wait to show you what I came home with from my first shopping trip!
If you’re looking for something dressy to wear this summer to a wedding, event or any occasion that requires you to step it up a notch, Burlington is a fantastic place to shop. You’ll find the latest trends, name brands and fashionable merchandise at up to 65% off department store prices every day. I could not believe what I walked out with, and all for just shy of $100!
My Dressy Summer Looks from Burlington
This is one thing I feel is a must-own piece of clothing for summer – the little white dress. Lace and LWDs are a big trend this summer and this one falls under both categories. I purchased it for only $17.98 and love the way it fits. It slips over my head for easy wear and is lined with a well made fabric. It’s a little stretchy, which makes it even more comfortable.
I would wear this to a dressed up back yard BBQ or a summer party. The all white makes me look like I have a nice summer tan, even though I really don’t!
The mint purse with tassels you see was also purchased at Burlington. It was actually the most expensive item I bought priced at $29.99, but well worth it! It’s so soft, has enough room to carry summer essentials and compliments my outfit perfectly. I’ve always liked white and mint together.
The Dressy Jumpsuit
I ordered a dressy jumpsuit online a couple of months ago and was so disappointed in it. The fabric was very thin and it just didn’t fit right. I loved the idea of having an outfit like this that’s so easy to throw on, add some jewelry and go. But I thought I just wouldn’t find one that worked for me, until I stepped into Burlington’s fitting room with this number.
It was on the clearance rack for only $14.98 and I could not believe it! It’s so well made and fits me perfectly. My husband and I have our 19th wedding anniversary coming up and I plan on wearing this out to dinner. I love an all black classic look where you can add pops of color with your accessories, or go more neutral with gold or silver.
The Lace Tank
Like I mentioned before, lace is a big summer trend this year. I have a couple of other dressy white tanks, but not a lace one. This can be worn with a skirt, jeans, dressy shorts and also under a cardigan or lightweight blazer. It’s a very versatile piece and one I have a feeling will see a lot of wear this summer. I purchased it for only $9.99.
The Long Romper
This next piece is now officially in my top 5 favorite items hanging in my closet. My boys call it my onesie. They’re so funny. As I was browsing through the racks at Burlington, this long romper caught my eye but at first I decided it might not be for me. Then I thought why not try it and I am so glad I did! For one, it was only $16 and two, it fits me perfectly.
What I love about a long romper like this is you can dress it up or down so easily. I wore it to an event where I knew I would be outside for awhile and it was so comfortable. But if I wanted to wear it to a summer party, or a dressier occasion, all I would need to do is add a lightweight jacket or cardigan, wedges and dressier jewelry.
