My little black dresses, yes, dresses, not dress, are definitely a staple in my closet, but for summer, I put them on the back burner because I was all about the LWD – The Little White Dress.
I always strayed away from wearing white for a number of reasons. One, I am extremely clumsy and spill food on myself constantly so wearing all white is just an accident waiting to happen. Second, white in general, is very unforgiving, so finding the right style and fit is key.
I bought this dress last year, at the end of summer, on sale, from Madewell and it fit me perfectly. It was a loose, flowy, and perfect for the summertime. I didn’t get a chance to wear it last year, but on my recent trip to Ojai, I knew that I had to bust this dress out. I did have to be extra careful around food because, you know, it’s white, but thankfully there were no accidents.
I think for the summer, a little white dress is a must because it is surprisingly versatile – you can dress it up with a jacket and some heels for a nice dinner out or pair it with sneakers for daytime.
Since I know that I’m not going to wear my LWD nearly as much as my LBD, I personally like to shop for them around this time of the year. Stores are getting ready for their fall items, so all the summer items are on sale and who doesn’t like a good deal?
