Everything will be better when you do it in a dress. That feeling is doubled when enjoying a delicious meal outside. From the comforting breeze to the brilliant orange sunset, nothing beats dining al fresco in a pretty dress while sightseeing summer scenery. In fact, that’s all I want to do right now. My modest balcony has seen more candlelit dinners slouch than I’d like to admit.
Technically, you don’t have to dress up every time you enjoy a plate of pasta outdoors, but wearing nice clothes definitely enhances the experience. If you have too many outdoor dinners coming up, take the time to consider the outfits below. Ranging from elegant silk figures to lightly accented floral pieces, each is exactly what I envisioned wearing on a warm night over a glass of wine and a plate of delicious cheese. Even if you prefer to eat indoors, these dresses are simply beautiful and they are bound to be worn on at least one occasion this season.
