BodenThe beach dress.

It's machine washable.

Are you in? I am!

Beach dresses can be a summer staple for moms. They're cooler than a t-shirt and shorts or pants and you can do almost anything in them.

Boden always has lovely beach dresses in stock, like this Breezy Beach Dress (Boden, $88) -- and yes, that's a "cheaper" dress for Boden -- but there are plenty more to choose from at even better prices.
