White Out

Okay, so it isn’t technically summer.  But Memorial Day is the unofficial start of it- PLUS if you are a stickler for rules you are now allowed to wear some summer whites!  If this isn’t reason to celebrate, well, I don’t know what is.  White truly is the classic summer look- it is clean, fresh and has both an energy and purity to it.  Plus—white can be worn in any style- bohemian, rocker, sophisticated and everything in between.

Need some inspiration?  Check out these looks from Cannes:

  2. Ooooo I love it! I’ve always been partial to wearing white its just so whimsical and playful. No white pants for me but the white skirts long mid length or short I love. I haven’t been able to find a really good long one like one i used to have, for many years now, but every year i look for one. Maybe this season will be my lucky season :)

  3. I love all white! Just have to make sure to keep it clean throughout the day!
