Fashion Friday: White Wash

I am pretty sure every summer I do a post on white dresses, but the reason is- everyone needs a great white dress for this season! Like the little black dress is to fall and winter (and spring, even), the little white dress is to these balmy few months! A little inspiration gathered from Pinterest:

I found my favorite white summer dress at Kate Spade (sadly it’s sold out), and even though after this picture was taken I made out with a puppy on the sidewalk who put his dirty paws all over the skirt, I don’t care. Summer whites get dirty. It’s just a fact. So pack your Tide Sticks, stock up on bleach and get to it.

(the shoes, however, are awesome and still available)

I scoured the internet looking for a white dress for just about everyone- from the modern gal to the preppy one and everything in between.  To complete any of these looks you’ll just need a nice tan leather or gold sandal and a good pair of nude underwear!

    oh man i love this post so much — every summer i add a LWD to my wardrobe and wear it non stop. these options are so tempting! p.s. the brand for love & lemons has a few great “boho chic” options as well for LWD that i keep adding to my cart. ;)

    cheers, jill

    What a lovely selection! I I don’t use little black dress at all during summer, but I wear a lot of white cloths as you do.
    Your dress is really cute!

  6. Erin, I thought your post yesterday was great! I’ve been following you for years and feel you have always been honest about your sponsors. If you make money great! There are some bloggers who are blatant sponsors for retailers but I’ve NEVER considered you one of them. You’ve always stayed true to your own style! Keep it up!

  7. I have been obsessed with all-white looks lately. Adding some of these to the list.
