White Now

Thursday, September 4, 2014

Forget the rules and play by your own. Wear white now and always - I sure do!
I'm in love with this dress. It's everything a summer dress should be; it's ethereal and light, it has intricate lace details, there's a modestly sheer element to it, and it's got great movement and flow. 
The hints of sparkle and pops of pearl give this summery dress an elegant vibe and princess-like edge. 
As one of my favorite and most unique necklaces, this piece never fails to enhance my look in a head-turning kind of way. The edginess contrasts with my soft, white palette and creates a major focal point. 
White & silver is a glam combination for summer but once fall and winter roll around, try cream and gold for a warm punch of polish. 
Bonus for wearing white right now: the shade will prolong your tan thus keeping vacation alive just a little bit longer! 
This quintessential farm setting with horses frolicking in the background is just the place I envisioned this outfit being worn in. There's just something about a beautiful white dress paired with cowboy boots. It's very charming and very southern.

Just because it's after Labor Day doesn't mean I'm shedding my whites. In fact, I'm embracing my last opportunities to bask in the sun and wear my favorite dresses and skirts sans tights. 

I'm definitely not letting the fact that September is over discourage me from making the most out of my warm-weather wardrobe before it's too late. After all, fall doesn't begin until Sept. 23rd. And for those of us living in the South, we've got summer heat until late November! 

Live it up everyone! Because winter is very long and very cold.

  2. Love this summer dress, you're right- it does have a princess like edge & I love the soft flowy look of it. Beautiful as always :)

    I too am trying to wear all my dresses right now while I still can! I live in Washington, so I know it's about to get chilly in the next few weeks...might as well enjoy the end of summer while it lasts!

  39. Oh Kat! You look so gorgeous in white color- I think it looks tremendous against your beautiful, thick brown hair! You did such a great job in styling, in my opinion, white and brown look amazing together! :)
    The dress looks very fancy, therefore, I love the fact that you decided to pair it with those cowboy boots to dress it down a bit! :)
