Summer Whites

While Blair is the epitome of elegance in a black top and lace skirt, I went the opposite route. I kept my outfit casual and wore my summer whites. White is a color that I love wearing year-round, never mind the archaic no-white-after-Labor-Day rule. I just keep the weather in mind and choose fabrics accordingly. Linen is reserved for spring/summer and wool is better suited for fall/winter. I'll wear cotton anytime though, even thinner versions in the colder months because they're great for layering.

  1. Love your style, but not loving the cropped tube top for an adult. Maybe a full length one would work better?

    1. I hear ya and understand where you're coming from. I tried compensating for the bareness by hiking up the skirt, but the extra fabric didn't sit right (I really should just get the dress made into a skirt). Unfortunately I don't own any longer strapless tops, but do own tank tops. I felt they were all too casual though (ribbed material or too sheer).

      As I'm writing this, it just hit me that I do have a white sequined tank! It's longer and I think that could work with the eyelet skirt. I'd probably forgo the statement necklace -- thoughts? I don't know how I forgot about that, but thank you for forcing me to think of other pairings :)

  2. This is so summary, love it! I agree, a tank that doesn't bare too much skin would be great for everyday but for a vacation, this would be awesome!

    1. I wish you had pics too! I haven't been to the beach in ages, mostly because I prefer sightseeing vacations. I think my subconscious is trying to tell me a week at the beach may not be so bad after all ;)
