Lightweight Dress for Summer

Happy Tuesday, ladies! There’s nothing better when the weather is hot than a lightweight dress. I think they’re comfortable and cool for hot summer days.

This cute dress from Old Navy is fully stocked in regular, tall, and petite. It comes in this leopard print but also camo and black.

It’s a t-shirt dress with an elastic waistline, but I added the braided belt to the dress, it can be worn without a belt.

For length reference, I’m 5’5″ and wearing the regular length. As I mentioned above, it comes in regular, petite, and tall.

Here are some more options I recently styled from Old Navy.

If you prefer a longer length, this striped midi dress is a nice option. It’s also a thicker material.

I thought this pullover would be perfect if you’re headed to the beach. I like to take something like this just in case I get cool inside, but it still looks summery.

This top also comes in navy, and it’s great for a hot summer day.

This is a scoop neck, with string ties at the back and a keyhole opening, it’s regular bra-friendly.

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to stop by my blog. I’m also on FacebookPinterest, and Instagram.

Beauty For the Heart~~ Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4

Our misery becomes our ministry, as we are comforted by God, we can then comfort others. Know that every suffering you go through is not pointless, it has a divine purpose.

Have a blessed day!

  1. Love it! Would be great heading into the fall with a denim jacket. We are having the heat as well it’s been a great summer. Enjoy 😊

  2. Good morning Cyndi!! Those are all so cute. My favorite is actually the striped pullover top!!! Maybe it’s just that I’m longing for a beach 🏖 stay!!! Haha!! And thanks for the BFTH reminder!! Have a blessed Tuesday!!! 😁

  3. Cute and great price. Although I’m not a big Old Navy shopper, I do buy their petite T-shirt dresses every year. I got two in the spring but they had a little flair to them but really nice fabric. So these would be great to wear now and going into fall. Thanks for sharing and have a great day.

  4. Ohhhh, so hot! I love the dress suggestions! You look SSOOO CUTE in that leopard print dress, and the belt is perfect. I think elasticized waists look a little “unfinished” w/o a belt. I’d go to Old Navy, but I can’t bear to go out n this heat! Maybe online…😉

  5. Hi Cyndi. This is not related to this post, but I just received the Lark and Roe wrap dress you styled last week. I love it!!! I might have to order another pattern. Now I just need somewhere to go😂 I’ve never ordered clothes from Amazon before but now you’ve got me hooked. Thanks and have a great day.

  6. Great pieces you picked out from Old Navy. The BFTH was great. Our misery is our ministry but sometimes during these times its hard to have anything else to deal with thats for sure. We just need to keep leaning into HIM. Could you explain someday in a Q & A what you mean by “I have deadlines due”? Maybe explain about a typical day in your blogging? Have a great day.

  7. The leopard print dress looks adorable on you! The regular length would be too short for me. How much added length is there with a “Tall” sizing?

  8. I was always 5′ 4″, but now I’m 5’3″. Shrinking is real! 🙁 Just another joy of aging….not.
    Great post and great pieces! Love them all!

  9. I really liked the leopard print dress with the belt and ordered both. Hope they look as good on me as they do on you.

  10. oops had te same thing happen when i went to endocrynologist for thyroid issues. He said his assistant would measure me to be sure then i got to go for more tests and and bone density. oh great osteoporosis.on top of everything else.
    oh well.the clothing is exceptionally nice looking today. thank you.
