summer whites

June 14, 2012

so typically i’m one to eschew the white pigment when it comes to fashion and me sporting such iridescence. although i’m quite fond of the non-shade, my skin-tone tis not.

typically what looks like tints of ivory, ecru, frost, snow, vanilla milkshake {thank you benjamin moore for your color pallette help} on others, looks like fluorescent lightbulb on me…

but to the mocking-birds with how my melasma, crossword-puzzled looking face appears, as i show up in my summer best; i’m obsessed with wearing white this season, and i WILL WEAR IT………with a mask.

here’s a look at some of the similar styles i’ve been sporting or wish to sport:

ever since i’ve found my perfect, white jean...{did i REALLY just write those words?} the white shirt on white denim combo makes me tony the tiger roar.

my frilly, white j.crew shirt from years ago, is getting a ton of party time with a with white khaki, calypso pants, and scarves all around {hair, wrist, neck, purse-just not at the same time mind you}.

how pretty is this look from the roland mouret 2013 cruise collection? a big, fat white bow at the colllar?

holler if ya hear me!!!

i’ve pretty much been living in a calypso tunic like this for the last two weeks. i throw it on as soon as i get home from work, and i’m instantly more at ease, more poolside serene, i even have priscilla fetch me a bloody mary.

there’s nothing like a ballet skirt, that just grazes below the knee to ladylike up any situation. throw it in white, and you’re an instant princess.

i think long sleeves, long pants and messy hair is more seductive than any short skirt or red lipstick.

this is my favorite southern california going out look {the nights can be chilly sometimes}.

but don’t get me wrong, there’s always room for that pretty flowing dress….{just NOT at a wedding ladies!!!!}

so tell me m’loves, do you like summer whites too?

will you i see you sporting some of my same uniform?

thursday happy to you m’loves.

  • your white uniform sounds heavenly katie! since i was in college i have worn all white all summer, less so now that my awesome tan from driving is more of a vanilla ice cream color and less of a vanilla stalk. still i'll always love white because you can bleach it. you will look so pretty in the hamptons in your all white!
