Sure, sure, we've all heard about the importance of the LBD (little black dress) wardrobe staple, but how often do we focus on its distant cousin, the little white dress?
One thing to note: You may want to make a new purchase each summer, as white is challenging to keep crisp and clean while you're out and about having fun. I cannot count how many white dresses I have gone through to date, but that doesn't lessen my love for them one bit! In fact, one thing that helps me is: shop the clearance racks and the thrift shop ;)
I opted to go a slightly different route this sunny season, this dress isn't a crisp white, but rather more so an 'off white'. Additionally due to the cut and style of it, it is easily paired with a pencil skirt (I wore it like that to the office), bell bottom jeans, or leggings. Versatility is the name of my game!
The weather has been such a ball of confusion lately, I need to dress for extreme heat shortly followed by a stiff breeze (as soon as the evening hours begin). Layers are a SoCal mandatory style practice, I like to use textural interest as my focus.
Furry outer layer, smooth interior layer, fringed edges, and suede + knit to boot :)
True to my style heart (vintage love) most of my looks incorporate a vintage piece or two in some way/shape/ or form. Can you spot the vintage goodies sprinkled in this look?
I hope you're staying cool & stylish in your neck of the woods Babes, until next time!
