Pops of Pink

I got this white lace dress two summers ago, but it’s made it through many closet clean-outs and is still in my spring/summer rotation! While you may typically steer clear of white dresses when you have a lot of weddings on the calendar (bachelorette parties and showers, too), I absolutely love the look of a little white lace dress for everyday wear. You can dress it down with a jean jacket and casual sandals (my favorite summertime look, like this outfit!) or dress it up with a fun pair of heels.

Here are a few more little white dresses I’ve loved and styled over the years…

Isn’t it weird how you can sometimes look at yourself and feel like you look the same, but so different at the same time? Does that make sense? I actually took these photos in May of 2016 (Feels like it was just yesterday… Another blog post draft left unpublished!) and it’s strange how I feel like I look the same in some ways, but notice so many changes in just two years. Just a random thought, ha!

You can’t go wrong with a big straw tote this time of year! Picnics, pool days, trips to the beach, shopping at the farmer’s market, you name it….

You can’t go wrong with a little pop of pink on your feet, either!

    I love your outfit. A perfect mid spring, summer, early fall classic outfit. Finally warm enough here in NYC tomorrow for a white dress.

    This dress looks beautiful on you! I used to stay away from white for fear of stains, but I’ve recently embraced a there’s always bleach philosophy. My wardrobe looks so much brighter and happy! xAllie http://www.theallthatglittersblog.com

      So true, there’s always bleach! It’s almost easier to clean white than other light colors.
