The Little White Dress

Gianni Bini Sophie Crepe Eyelet Tiered Square Neck Midi Dress

The sun was shining and I’m not wasting one second of this clear blue sky. Who knows we might not see it again for a few months. I hit the city early, Denver is so lovely just before the shops open. The coffee shops are starting to fill up with the early worms catching up or reading the morning newspaper. It’s amazing how a clear blue sky can change the way you feel and see the world.

Today’s outfit post is all that. It’s all that summer represents to me and whilst I appreciate some might find white and lace dresses a bit cheasy, I love it. In fact, I’m a big sucker for… I actually managed to get this white number from Gianni Bini on a sale about a month ago ($39.75 only!!!) and this was a first time I wore it, though certainly not the last one. A little WHITE dress is, for me, a welcome addition to my wardrobe, despite the fact that due to Texas summers, I might only wear it on special occasion. 

Dressing for a hot summer day, you are left with two choices, you can either be the queen, totally slaying it, or you can end up like a sweating, frizzled mess as soon as you step out of your air-conditioned residency. Before I forget, the lace adds a real classy edge to this dress, making it far more standout than it would if it was purely white. Perhaps it was the reason I was drawn me to this dress as soon as I spotted it at Dillards. The length, style and white colour, I did feel rather lady like in this dreamy summer ensemble.

What are your tips on what to wear in summer when it’s red hot?

    Such a stunner, Len! I LOVE this white lace dress with a dark brim, the straps are also super cute and the different layers of the skirt really make it a standout piece and not your typical LWD ♥ We have not been having the hottest summer over here in England, so I think I have forgotten how to dress for red hot days, hahaha. Hope you are having a fantastic weekend, lovely

    Your outfit looks beautiful! The price is really nice too! I have a couple of dresses that are reserved for special occasions too due to how they feel and being heat-unfriendly XD. Definitely wearing a hat during the summer is helpful!

  22. August 14, 2017 / 1:13 AM

    You are absolutely stunning. Love the eyelet dress!

  23. August 14, 2017 / 1:57 AM

    Oh my goodness, all your photos are soooo gorgeous!! This dress is really pretty. I don’t really have any tips for looking cute when it’s hot! I’m definitely one of those people who just melts–no queen here, haha. Have a great rest of your Sunday!

    Miles of smiles,

    This dress is perfection in every sense of the word! Love the texture of the fabric as well!

    What I like about LWD, then it’s their functionality that allows you to wear them absolutely anywhere you like, plus you can easily match them with any footwear. They look awesome layered under denim or leather jackets. By the way, I made a post about 2018 little white dresses, check it: as you can see, there are lots of ways to make white dress look great!
