If there's one thing I love about summer, it's the fashions! I've never been one to wear many dresses during the year, but for some reason, I seem to live in them once the warm weather hits. Summertime, for me, is all about the easy, breezy, laid-back lifestyle and I love finding brands which reflect that same theme.
Fresh Produce is definitely one such brand that accentuates color, comfortability and a coastal attitude. One look at their selection of summer dresses and I was hooked. Keep reading to see which dress I chose and to learn more about Fresh Produce!

The heart of the Fresh Produce brand is rooted in the positive impact of color.

The Handpicked dealers utilize the Fresh Produce retail trade dress and stock a broad assortment of Fresh Produce's most current styles.
It was so hard for me to decide on just one dress to choose from Fresh Produce. The four you see above were the final candidates, but in the end, I went with the first dress, the Cafe Wrap Dress in Fiji. I love wrap dresses for they always make "the girls" look good and I was enthralled by the unique Fiji print. This print was a great combination of color and turned a traditional floral pattern on its ear by giving it an island/tropical touch.
The Cafe Wrap Dress in Fiji was made of 92% rayon and 8% Lycra in a thicker material than I thought it would be. This was great though because the thicker material makes the dress more durable and hangs better on the body. I loved the flirty cut, perfect for summer, which wasn't too revealing. This wrap dress falls a little above the knee and isn't too low-cut.
The only issue I had was with the sizing of the dress. I followed the size guide exactly and selected a medium based on my body's measurements. Unfortunately, when the dress arrived, I found it to be too large. If you're ordering from Fresh Produce and find yourself toward the smaller end of a size, like I was, then I would definitely recommend going down a size. Other than that, the Cafe Wrap Dress in Fiji was the perfect choice for my new summer fashion ensemble!
