Abstract Summer Dresses

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.

When I was building my wardrobe for Greece I wanted a few fun prints to contrast all the white washed backdrops and a pop of blue to play off all the accompanying rooftops.  When I found this dress it channeled my inner hippie chic.  I initially wanted to pair it with all my gladiator sandals but thought an edgier boot would balance out the carefree boho look of it.  Of course because let’s call it a gift it is already sold out but you know I found you some great abstract Summer dress alternatives!

So what are your thoughts on these abstract prints for the Summer?  Do you tend to dress them up or down?  We leave tomorrow!!!!  Between all my family members and friends, our place will have house guests while we are gone.  That Florida living is hard to say no to!  Tell me all the things I can’t forget tomorrow!  Already packed my converters!  A girl needs her straightening iron am I right?  xoxoxo

    That dress looks amazing!!!! And it’s going to look so fab against the Grecian backdrops! I love that you paired it with the boots, very fresh look.

    Remember your eye mask for the flight so you can sleep and don’t worry about posting too many pictures of us back home. Just enjoy your time with your husband :)!

    Hi Amanda! Visiting from TBB! :) So funny you’d write about this today because my hubs and I are leaving for Europe on Friday and I shared my Europe travel essentials today on the blog. I’m big on photography so I’m bringing almost every camera I own. Also, since the nights are cooler, I’m packing two spring jackets because we all know Florida girls freeze below 70 degrees. :) Two non-traditional items I’m bringing are a white noise maker for sleep (we’re staying in some bigger cities) and a filtered water bottle.

    I hope you have a wonderful time and that dress is adorable! Loving prints for summer – especially in rompers and maxis. xx

SO exciting!!! I hope that you have an incredible time and can’t wait to see all of your pictures and hear all about it. :-)

    Love that dress! Have the best time in Greece, I cannot wait to hear all about it. Take lots of pictures. As for your flat iron, only bring it if it’s dual voltage. Otherwise, it might not work. Personally, I think you should embrace the beachy hair while you are there and leave the iron home. Use that extra space to buy yourself a present. Don’t forget Sunscreen. Safe Travels.

  22. Love the dress, especially paired with the boots! And have SO MUCH FUN!!!! So excited for you!!

  23. Darcy says:

    SO cute! Fun printed dressses that are easy to slip on like this are vacation must haves!

    Wide band-aids (in case of blisters), basic travel meds such as anti-diarrhea, advil, baggie of Benefiber to keep you regular, Alka-Selzer cold plus tablets, at least 10-15 (good for hangovers & cold-like symptoms), hand sanitizer & travel-size baby wipes (not all your restrooms along the way are pristine), his & hers eye masks, lots of ziplock baggies, shoes you can walk in…tons of stairs & uneven walkways, a few linen handkerchiefs to blot your face when you “glow”..tissue just doesn’t work. And most important, pack your sense of humor and patience. So excited for you both!

  34. Gorgeous dress… love the blue hues in all of them!! And these photos too ;)

  35. I can’t believe it’s finally here!! I’m so excited for you guys. Love the dress and I think it will be perfect for Greece. I tend to lean towards dresses with patterns because it hides a lot. Don’t forget your passports! And some nausea medicine for the plane. I never knew I got “plane sickness” until I was on a 16 hour flight to Rwanda!

  36. Helene says:

  41. Kiki says:

    Summer time is made for all the fun prints! I was this close to buying a dress with motor cycle prints all over it. It was precious, just didn’t fit perfectly and I promised myself I’d only start purchasing pieces I fell in love with as soon as I tried them on. But hey I’ve got some floral, leave, and crazy abstract prints in my closet just waiting to break into the summer weather! Have a great time on your honey moon! Safe travels to you and your husband and I hope the two of you make magical memories together. (:

  42. GREAT summer dress… I adore your alternative. The geo-print one from Forever 21 is super cute!! Cool sunglasses, too! :o)
