I'm not usually one to gravitate toward traditional colors for seasons. I don't think it's necessary to only wear dark nail polish in the winter and reserve bold blue and green polish for the warmer months. I see no need to stick with hair highlights in the spring and summer and only go darker in the fall. And I've always scoffed at the whole "only wear white after Memorial Day and before Labor Day" way of thinking (although truthfully, I think that has all but disappeared in today's set of fashion rules anyway). But today, I'm going all-out traditional and celebrating one of my long-time favorites for this time of year: classic summer white. When it comes to long, hot days and breezy warm nights, white clothing and accessories just work. While summer colors go in and out of style, white remains a staple. From boho-tinged white dresses to simple white tees to white sandals (my current favorite), you just can't go wrong with white in the summertime.



  1. I love it! Especially the sneakers and shorts, just wish it would warm up enough :)

  2. I love white clothes IN THEORY, but I'm such a messy person that I'd get food/paint/chapstick all over myself in five minutes. The hat would be safe, though! I'm just waiting for the rain to stop so I can wear my straw fedora while I run errands. :-)

  3. I love white year round, maybe especially in the winter, but there's no denying its appeal in the summer months - mainly because it keeps you far cooler than my other favourite colour, black ;) I tend to live in white dresses for most of the summer and so far, this year has been no exception. I usually reserve white nail polish for winter but I love the look of that flat white shade from Essie, so I may have to pick it up.

  4. I love white clothes and accessories in the summer and I love everything here, especially the Birkenstocks and the tshirt!

  5. Gotta love a good pair of Chuck Taylors :) And I'm lovin' those sunglasses too.

  6. Love the t-shirt - and the hat -- and if I were 45 years younger and 80 pounds thinner, it would be fun to sport those cute little cutoffs.

  7. Thanks for your sweet comment, Melissa! Yes, insomnia, absolutely the worst. Fingers crossed for better sleeps soon! As for white?!! I'm all over it this year + these picks are making me want to shop, shop!! xo
