I vividly remember our many trips to the beach around this time last year, when I was in the third trimester of my pregnancy with Clementine. Nothing felt better than being in the ocean or walking along its edge, the salty breeze providing solace from the heat. This summer, bringing our now-nine-month-old daughter to the beach feels so surreal. Ever since our nearby beaches opened, we have been going first thing in the morning or just before sunset, when it’s cooler and less crowded. While our morning visits often call for swimsuits, in the evenings, I like to wear comfortable, flowy maxi dresses, like this white one by Sea. For whatever simple, but lovely, memories you’re making this summer, find a few more of my favorite effortless white dresses below.
