There are a few types of clothing that I seem to always fall for. A great classic tee, wrap tops or dresses and of course all things denim. But when it comes to summer dresses, I seem to always fall for the button front dress. It all started last year with this Mango dress and also this little white number. Ever since I continue to add more and more of them to my wardrobe. Especially in the summer!

I don’t know what it is about the button front dress, but I clearly am obsessed. To me, they need nothing more added. The buttons add interest and it lengthens you since it’s a vertical detail that draws your eye up. This lilac Gal Meets Glam Collection Vanessa linen dress was on my radar last summer. It also came in yellow and this lilac. With it being GMG’s first collection, items sold out almost instantly. So when she brought it back this summer I knew I had to snag it. A part of me kind of wants to hem it shorter, but midi dresses are also a favorite right now. But I’m also a sucker for a mini.

Below are a few under $100 button front dresses that I’m loving right now. The big Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale is going on now and almost all of these are part of it. So many great pieces! Shop the entire sale HERE.

    I love a good button-front dress! I haven’t ordered anything from the Gal Meets Glam dress collection, but I clearly need this beauty! Love your sandals, too.

      I really love the fit of her pieces and quality. The price point is a TAD high on some things but it’s truly because of how well they’re made and fabric quality. The sale items are usually the best price!

    Gorgeous! I have been eyeing this for a while but this post has sealed the deal on ordering it. How do you feel it runs? TTS?

      Definitely true to size! I’ve been a 4 across all her dresses for the most part.
