Personal Shopper: Chic and affordable summer dresses for Kara O.

Kara O. writes: "So, maybe this is a Carlota question? I am searching for an effortless and chic summer dress that's not a bank-breaker, so under $150. I keep seeing super cute dresses with slouchy sleeveless tops and draw-string or elastic waists. Perfect! However, I'm 5'8", high-waisted, and over mini dresses. They're all mini dresses! I would love to find one that ends at the knee or a couple inches above the knee. Please help me find that summer staple that will keep me cool and stylish! Thanks, Kara"
