All White, All White, All White
All White, All White, All White
Keep repeating the above statement until you sound like Matthew McConaughey.
Do you sound like Matthew McConaughey? Good. We can move on with the blog post now…
If you couldn’t tell by the title of this post, I’m talking about how to wear all white... err mostly white. Please note, this is a ground-breaking blog post -- wearing white in... *gasp* the summer!
All jokes aside, I do genuinely love wearing white, and most importantly, I love wearing white and not spilling anything on my white clothing. Sometimes I swear I have a hole in the bottom of my mouth...
Along with wearing white, another thing I’m low key obsessing over, especially in the warm summer months, is wearing off-the-shoulder tops and dresses. So when I found this adorable off-the-shoulder top in white, I was over the moon. White off-the-shoulder top in for the W! In today’s market you have to be careful when buying clothing pieces because really cute pieces can have their serious flaws if the materials are poor, and/or low-quality. This top has proven to be a tried-and-true staple piece that I’ve worn countless times. The fabric is cotton, so the top breathes, has a beautiful cut-out floral design, yet is layered so it's not too sheer. One thing I hate about off-the-shoulder tops and dresses, are the thin, too-tight elastic pieces that make your shoulders and arms feel constrained. I’m not Britney Spears with a boa constrictor wrapped around my shoulders, so the last thing I want is a tight, elastic band acting like one (a boa constrictor that is). With the top I’m wearing, the elastic band is thick and sturdy so the top sits nicely off the shoulders in the most flattering way. The ¾-inch sleeves, with the adorable tie-knot detail, is also a favorite of mine, it adds a sense of structure and visual dimension to the top. Basically this top goes with everything, and I love dressing it up and down! Don’t be shocked if you catch me posted up around town in this top.
With this outfit, I paired my vintage clutch, Kendra Scott drop earrings, and white strappy block heels. Hence the all white, all white, all white. Are you Matthew McConaughey yet? Good. My work here is done.
As far as clutches go… well bags and purses in general, I can be very picky. I’m picky in the sense that I always look for a good, sturdy bag that will keep its shape, a bag that won’t fall apart, and of course, the bag has to be versatile. I mean, for goodness sakes, this bag is going wherever I go, and it's gotta keep up! I love this clutch, not only for the sentimental value it has with me, but because it’s made with high-quality materials so I don’t have to worry if the bag will fall apart.
One trend that I’m 100% here for, is the block heel. I love a good stiletto, but after a full day of strutting around in shoes with a toothpick for support, my feet are dead AF. So, if you’ve been hanging onto block-heeled shoes from the 70s and 90s, your time is now. Dust those babies off and get it! The pair of strappy block heels that I’m wearing are incredibly comfortable, and make any outfit très chic!
To finish off my all-white ensemble, I have selected my lovely Kendra Scott drop earrings in white. I really wanted to emphasize my bare shoulders, which is why I chose to keep my jewelry selections to a minimum. The earrings add a subtle emphasis due to their size, but the lovely white color doesn’t take away from my shoulders, but merely enhances them by framing them in white. This classic shape and color easily make these earrings a go-to for any spring/summer outfit.
I appreciate you taking the time to visit my new blog, I hope it's full of beautiful inspiration.
