A season of wearing white!

I hope everyone had a lovely, long Memorial Day Weekend! I had a really fun weekend and we had some awesome weather which made it all the more fun! This time of year is when we're finally allowed to (acceptably) where white again! Even though this is just a silly old rule, I've never associated white with winter but I do love summer whites!! A white wool winter peacoat is gorgeous, but does anything really beat a white sundress with gorgeous and colorful accessories?!

Here's my list of do's and don'ts of wearing white this summer:


Have lots of plain, white t shirts to pair and layer with - I wear white tee's so much and switch them out with new ones every few months!
Do wear white lace!! So classy, so timeless, so gorgeous!
White jeans, shorts and dresses are all gorgeous for summer to be paired with a colorful top or bottom!
Pair white with colorful accessories. Turquoise sandals or pink earrings will make the white you're wearing pop!
Do dress white up - while a LBD is essential for a wardrobe, a LWD is just as gorgeous! Whether it's a skater dress or maxi dress, this can be dressed up or down and perfect for summer.


Before buying your white shirt, pants, dress, skirt etc. make sure that the white isn't too see through and thin! I've seen my fair share of white-gone-wrong and trust me you do not want to be a part of that club!
Make sure that your white clothing isn't too tight - trust me, not a good look either!

White is a classy color that looks beautiful, so make sure your white piece makes you feel comfortable and pretty!
Here's some of my favorite white pieces for this summer:




Bags, and accessories:

Are there any white clothes or accessories you're loving for the summer?



  1. I honestly don't trust myself wearing white lol I just can't keep it clean as much as I want to.

  2. This is an excellent post on upscaling my white clothes this summer season. I love pairing gold and coral colors with white. Makes me feel like I am at the beach!

  3. Love this post! Really cute outfit ideas for the summer!

  4. I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets excited for summer whites! Since I have trouble keeping them white, I try to go with solid whites that can be bleached so I can keep them looking fresh. Thanks for the post!

    1. That's a really good idea!! I don't trust myself in white all the time either but it looks so classy - so I'm extra careful when I wear it! Haha! xoxo

  5. I swear to you, if I am in white, the only day of the month I spill my coffee on myself will be that day. It never, ever, ever fails. Maybe I should stick to cream.

  6. Great Tips! No one wants a white clothing mishap, and these tips will help prevent that! Thanks for sharing and joining the Link-It To Me Link Up Party, looking forward to partying with you again next week!
