How to Wow in White










Wearing white in the summer is a no-brainer for me. It's fresh, bright, crisp, and doesn't attract heat like the color black does. The only negative to wearing white for me is the extra precautions I need to take because I can be quite the clumsy lady!

Rather than choosing to wear this cute, white dress from Dress Lily plainly, I decided to pair it with a neck scarf to modernize the look and give it some class. I've been seeing neck scarves everywhere lately and have been really enjoying the appeal it adds to an outfit.

I also chose some boots with buckle details rather than a summer sandal to create a more edgy look and to play down the femininity of the ruffled sleeves. Not that there is anything wrong with dressing feminine or girly, I just chose to tone it down that day.

Even though the overall color palette of this outfit is pretty neutral, the accessories and shoes add appeal and intrigue to the overall outfit.

1. Dress: c/o Dress Lily
2. Neck Scarf: Aldo similar
3. Boots: Donald Pliner similar (and on sale!)

  7. Love the title, wow in white sounded like a wedding first (probably thought vows in white?!) which got me excited haha. However, love this look and you're so right on the cripsy feeling of white in summer! Love that you outplayed the femininity of the ruffles with the boots and the chic neck scarf! Such a good one! Have a lovely weekend gorgeous!! Xx

    1. Lol! I can see how the title could be misleading. I hope I don't look like I'm getting married in this. You are on the right track though because I do plan on sharing some wedding photos this month on the blog <3

  8. You look gorgeous, as always, girlie! I love the way you've styled your white dress; which I love, sleeves are so lovely! I also love how you've incorporated edgier pieces to add a bit of a juxtaposition to the overall look, those booties are everything! Thank so much for sharing, gorgeous, and I hope you have the most amazing weekend ahead!

  36. Cute look! I love white for the summer too. And like you, I have to be sooo careful haha. Usually I end up with coffee somewhere! I like this as an edgier look since I am not too girly myself. Diggin the neck scarfs lately too! Makes me want winter even more. :)
