Everything feels better when you do it in a dress. That feeling is two-fold when it comes to sitting down to a delicious meal outside. From the comfortable breeze to the orange sunset glow, nothing tops dining alfresco in a pretty dress while taking in the summer scenery. In fact, it’s pretty much all I want to do right now. My humble balcony has seen more scrappy candlelit dinners than I’d care to admit.
You technically don’t have to dress up every time you enjoy a plate of pasta outdoors, but wearing a nice dress surely enhances the experience. Should you too have many evenings of alfresco dinners ahead, take time to consider the below dresses. Including elegant silk numbers to low-key floral pieces, each is exactly what I envision wearing on a warm night downing a glass of wine and a delectable cheese plate. Even if you prefer to eat indoors, these dresses are simply pretty that they’re bound to be worn for at least one occasion this season.
