Easy Summer Whites
Summer dressing is so easy. I go in my closet, pick out a cute flowy dress, a complimentary pair of shoes, and I’m on my way. No need to deal with complex layering, too much pattern mixing, or color matching. What makes it so much easier? The perfect little white dress. Ingrid & Isabel (one of my ride or die maternity brands the past 8 months) sent me this cute little white summer dress that has grown with my belly and will look absolutely fine post-partum (it comes in a mini size for your little nugget, too!). I wore it in Hawaii during my awkward-belly stage, and can still wear it 4 months later!
I love a good white dress, and happen to have a bunch on watch for when they go on sale. This tiered rickrack dress is kind of perfect, and I need this popover silhouette for fall, especially since the shape will be so forgiving after baby comes! I also love that a white dress is a fabulous palette for my vast collection of colorful statement earrings. Baublebar is actually having a huge sale until 8/6, where everything included is just $10! That’s a big deal, especially because their earrings are typically in the $35-$50 range. I’m a sucker and paid $34 for these (but I seriously love them) and I’m about to swipe these before you all do, haha.

Magnificent 8 – White Dresses!
The Magnificent 8 is back, and we’re styling our own take on white dresses! We styled bathing suits last July, distressed denim in October, Activewear in January, colorful patterns in April, and we’re back with a summery theme!
The Magnificent 8 is a collaboration among 8 stylish women from every decade of life (teens all the way up to 80s!) showcasing our style one generation at a time. And I’m representing the 30-somethings! The mission of our collaboration is to show you just how ageless style is, how we can each dress however we’d like and in ways that make us feel fabulous. There are no age restrictions on style. So wear what you want, when you want, add a smile, and strut your style with confidence. And be sure to check out all 8 of these amazing gals! We will be sharing these posts on a quarterly basis…so be sure to check back in October for the next post in our series.
Head to the blogs below to see each stylish woman’s take on mixing patterns! My little white dress is pretty simple, so I spruced it up with a colorful bouquet. I’m sure everyone else has creative takes that I wouldn’t have though of myself.
Grace of Graceful Rags is representing teenagers.
Michelle of Michelle’s Pa(i)ge is representing the 20-somethings.
Roxanne of Glass of Glam is representing the 30-somethings.
Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge is representing the 40-somethings.
Rena of Fine Whatever is representing the 50-somethings.
Eugenia of Age of Grace is representing the 60-somethings.
Nancy of Jodie’s Touch of Style is representing the 70-somethings.
And Charlotte of Jodie’s Touch of Style is representing the 80-somethings.
You certainly can’t put a number on style!

What a fun collaboration and you are so right about white dresses! It’s so easy to wear and very versatile. I love the eyelet hem of your dress. Such a fun detail and makes your white dress unique! I hope your week is going well so far and wishing you a nice weekend.

Roxanne, this dress is adorable! And I love that it has gone through pregnancy with you and will continue on postpartum. I love the eyelet detail along the bottom. And the neutral espadrille wedges are perfect. Loving the bright bouquet, too!
