The Duchess of Cambridge (who I will forever think of as Kate Middleton!) had the right idea, wearing a cute yet comfy Jenny Packham shirt dress when she left the hospital the other day, beautiful babe in arms! I love dresses because they're an entire outfit in one (lazy people unite!) and they're often very body-flattering.
Dresses are great any time of year, but I especially love them in the summer for a cool, casual yet put-together look that's a step above shorts and a tank without being too fussy. Here are some great picks!

This chic Boden dress is a bit splurgy, but well worth the money, as they make such beautiful, high quality garments. (Though I'll be watching for it to go on sale!) If you click through to the site, you'll see the gorgeous pleated detailing. A dress Mrs. O would wear! ($148 at BodenUSA.com)
