I’ve been neglecting my blog for quite sometime because I have had a lot of personal stuff to take care of lately. I still go out and take pictures a few times a week though but I just couldn’t find time to sit down and put my blog post together. I’ve been wanting to post this affordable and simple Spring/Summer Dresses for over a month now and finally today I have this post ready for you to take a look at all of my top simple and affordable Spring/ Summer dress picks.
A lot of dresses are from my favorite stores and are from $15 -$65. I found that wearing simple design dresses can give you an effortless elegant look. But I don’t want you to spend hundreds of dollars or even thousands to get your glam on. See below and let me know which one is your favorite!
I also added Summer Dress trends that I see popping up on the market this year as well. I hope you like them all! 🙂
Summer Dresses for Less
Summer (Simple) Dress Trends
Sweetheart neckline is for sure on trend for this summer. It brings your feminine side out! This dress is only $17.99. It comes in 2 colors (Navy and Light Yellow). I love this dress a lot so I got it in both colors. This dress might look very simple but it surely does add some level of class and prettiness to your style.
Cute details with button front! This dress is a perfect dress for Summer because of its pretty color. It’s made of a 100% rayon which is perfect for the warmer weather. I like the straight neckline and the button front details. This dress is also $17.90 but it only comes in Green. I got a size bigger (Medium) than my normal size (Small) that’s why this dress looks a little bit big on me. I was afraid about the button front design that might cause a tighter fit at the belly area but I was wrong. If you are considering to buy this dress, just go for your normal size.
Easy to wear and helps flatter the upper part of your body! Nothing better than a strapless dress in the Summer. I got this dress because I love the color so much. It fits true to size and it’s so darn adorable!
Make your summer a little more sexy with the plunging V- neckline! This dress is flirty and has a pretty sage color. It’s very comfortable but quit short on me even though I’m 5’4”. The tying cutout is making this dress more fun but yet still simple.
Rounding up a ton of cute slogan/graphic tees from a few of my favorite stores on the blog today. Because they’re definitely fun and comfortable to wear during Spring and Summer. I lost count on how many new tees I got from my previous shopping trip. But that doesn’t mean I will stop shopping for more. They’re just so fun to wear!
I sometimes use a graphic tee as my source of expression. Are you finding yourself doing that sometimes too? It’s such a cool and creative way to let people know how you feel through a piece of clothing. The best of all is that there are so many ways that you can incorporate your graphic/slogan tee into your outfit, which means you won’t have to think hard at all on how to wear it. All you have to do is to have fun wearing it.
Quick tip:Even though you can wear your tee with pretty much anything, the easiest paring has to be with Denim. You will never go wrong with that and you can pick denim pants, shorts, skirt, or go for a double denim day. You will be able to achieve a classic and comfortable look any day with your tee and denim combo.
Last week my husband and I went out exploring more areas where we can do some future photoshoots at, and we have discovered a few new spots that we love. You can see my photos below, all of them are beautiful. Thanks to my husband!
I have to say that I don’t give enough credits to my husband as he’s my one and only photographer. I get a lot of compliments on my photos all the time and that wouldn’t be possible if I didn’t have my honey to take all of those gorgeous photos for me. He’s now enjoying taking pictures more than ever. He even said that he would have picture taking withdrawals if we don’t go out for our photoshoot. I think that’s a good thing so we can have more content to share with you.
Ohh, I forgot to mention that I am now using Lightroom to edit my pictures. 🙂 I am still in a process of trying to master all the editing. If you have any Lightroom tips feel free to leave them in the comment box below.
Alright, let’s dive into all of my top tee picks from my favorite stores!
Dreaming of my own makeup vanity for a long time and finally today, I have an opportunity to partner with Desenio to create my dream vanity, where now it is one of my favorite corners in my home.

I have to tell you now that I am not an interior designer, so I probably can’t give you good and proper instructions on how to choose the right furniture for your space. Even though I took a few classes in collage and have been applying some of the theories to my own home, I can only share with you my personal process on how to pick and decorate your space to make it a dream come true space.
In today’s post I will share with you my “Basic Décor Tips” I’m using to decorate my home, plus showing you the newest Vanity corner, I put together since last month.
My first thing I take into action when designing each space, is to come up with the felling of it. You can ask yourself a few of these questions below:
What’s the purpose of this space? (Relaxing, Excitement, Encouraging or etc.)
Do you want it to look modern, timeless, fun or what’s your main theme?
You will have to take some time to answer these questions just to get the feel of it. Identifying the purpose of your space will make it a lot easier when designing your area.
For example, if you’re designing a family area, you have to think in advance of what activities will you have in there. Is it just for the family to hangout and watch movies, or will it also be a place that you can host a fun party for 12, or will it be your snooze zone? If your family area is for a snooze zone, how to décor it will be totally different from arranging for a fun party. You see what I mean? Each purpose has its own feeling. Considering defining the purpose of your space in the first stage will be of big help before you choose your furniture and decoration pieces.
Talking about the era of your space, I always go for a few eras when choosing the furniture and décor accents. I feel like picking furniture with only one timeframe is too traditional and too formal for my untraditional taste.
You can see here that my Mirror and neon signs are a bit more vintage and the table, stool and my gold planter are more modern but they both complement each other perfectly.
Color plays a huge role when it comes to designing space. I love to look at the meaning of each color (aka, color phycology) to see how they connect with your emotional level. I did a blog post about “COLORS THAT GO WELL WITH RED” ,you can have a quick read if you’re looking into using red in your space.
My personal preference when choosing color is to stick with a few main colors not more than that unless your main purpose is to make the room more fun with lots of colors. The reason I only choose 2-3 colors is because I don’t want to get overwhelmed when using the space.
I used Pink, Blue and Gold as my main colors for my Vanity corner. I have to be honest with you that I actually picked the colors of this area after I decided what posters I wanted to hang on the wall. These two posters from Desenio are the two that helped me decide what colors I should go with.
Let’s talk about the meaning of colors I picked for a little bit. Blue is actually a perfect color for my vanity because it’s associated with confidence. Pink is another good one because it’s associated with feminine, youthful, fun and charming. They are a perfect combination for my vanity corner where I can make sure I look good and feel good about myself. I also chose Gold because it’s an uplifting color that represents glamour and sophistication.
Quick tip: Scrolling through DESENIO Gallery Wall Inspiration page, will help you choose the right color and theme for your soon to be loveliest space of your home.
Tip 3: Décor It Right
After you come up with the feels and colors it’s now time for you to pick the right furniture and decoration pieces. Despite getting ideas of what type of furniture I want from looking at pictures from Pinterest, one of my go to source to pick the right and affordable furniture is to search on Google. It’s no secret here on where to find the cheapest but yet high quality. But I found that Target has a lot of pretty furniture with affordable prices.
Quick tip: Don’t sacrifice the look and quality of products because you find a cheaper alternative of it. You might end up being disappointed and have to purchase the original item which means you have to spend more money. Just make sure you’re a hundred percent in love with the item before you purchase it.
Talking about wall arts like posters, I found Desenio is the best place to shop posters. Their posters are printed on uncoated, thick paper with a matte, high-quality finish. At Desenio, you’ll find a wide selection of posters and mounting solutions, such as poster hangers and clips – often inspired by Scandinavian style.
Some of you might think it’s better to buy a downloadable art and print it yourself. I myself did that before and it came out to be more expensive that way. Sometimes the store doesn’t even accept your products as of the copy right issue. So, if you’re looking to purchase high quality arts that can save you time and money, make sure you check them out.
Don’t forget to use “thevibescloset” for 25% off posters* between 3rd – 5th April. *Except for handpicked-/collaboration posters and frames”.
Tip 4: Bring on Your Personality
Last but not least, are there any parts or personalities of yours, you want to bring into the space?
Each space in my home reflects my personality, for example, this vanity corner, you can kind of see the emotional, playful, sassy and conservative parts all at once. I want to make this space a useable and functional space and also want it to represent who I am and what I like as well.
Quick tip:Picking the right posters can help express your feeling and represent who you are.
That’s it for today. If you’re putting together or redecorating your home, feel free to apply a few of my tips, right Feeling, right Colors, right Decoration, and let your Personality shine. Because at the end of the day, you just have to choose the items that reflect who you are and the lifestyle you’re in. There is no right or wrong. You just have to play around with it until you feel comfortable and feel good when you’re using your space. It’s your home, just have fun!
