Classic Summer Dresses: 5 Under $40

Fellow Nashvillian mama Rowena responded to my Facebook query last night about today’s #FashionFriday topic. She wanted to see cute dresses for moms that don’t make us look like look we’re trying to be teenagers.

Now is the time to pick up a new dress on summer clearance. I’m a huge bargain shopper and deal lover.

I’ve found five classic dresses for under $40 that are classic styles that just say no to Cougarville. Several would also transition well into fall with a blazer or sweater or different accessories. Which dress is your favorite?

Ann Taylor Loft Dress

I love the color of this Ann Taylor Loft dress on clearance for $26.93! It also comes in black. This is one of those go to dresses that can be dressed up or down with accessories.

Navy JC Penney Shift Dress

This pretty navy print shift dress from JC Penney is just $25. Check out a similar version from Tory Burch priced at a painful $375. (ouch!) This would be great for the office with a blazer or sweater.

A Line Dress Piper Lime

I love green and I love this pretty vibrant green A Line Mini Dress on sale at Piperlime for $35. I’m thinking this one would also look great with boots.

Sleeveless Sheath Dress Belk

Love the gorgeous color of this sleeveless sheath dress (always a classic) on sale at Belk for just $31.99.

Lace Dress Belk

Lace dresses are in such as this Maggy London Petite peplum dress at Belk for just $36.99 (marked down from $148.)

    I hit up LOFT’s sale last weekend and got the one you show in beige with a white print, and a sleeveless turquoise one. Can’t wait to wear them on my hubby and my getaway to Charleston next month!
