I'm still getting warmed up the fact that it's ACTUALLY June - even though we're pretty much one solid week in. But with June comes the official start of summer - it's the real deal. The temps have started to rise (MAJOR) in Dallas and lately all I've been wanting to throw on is an easy dress. As such, I wanted to round up a few of my favorites at Nordstrom; they always have the best selection! The dress I'm…
