1. ooooh, i have a white, long sleeve, lacy tunic from ann taylor (surprisingly as that is where i get work clothes, not summery styles!) that i pair with metallic sandals and a summer tan. i just pulled it out from my winter storage and it was screaming “take me out for margaritas!”

      I want to see, Jessica!

      Speaking of Ann Taylor, I am loving what they are doing under the new designer this season!!!

    2. i agree! the new ads felt supremely celine-esque and the brick & mortar vibes very different. it’s always been my secret shop for pieces that look more expensive than they are (but you have to pick through to find them!) and i hope that trend continues.

    Such a beautiful outfit! And exceptionally good tips.

    As for the white dress, I do have one – it’s very 50’s, almost sleeveless, midi length, cinched at the waist, tiny gold buttons from the top to the bottom. It’s from a local brand, and I love it a lot. Really like wearing it with black/beige espadrilles or leopard print flat sandals and a fun metallic necklace. So perfect for summer indeed!

      Anastasia – I appreciate that so much, coming from you – a skilled writer. I enjoy writing and am working on developing more robust articles here.

      I want to see your white dress!

    2. Anastasia says:

      I will definitely shoot some photos wearing it in Paris this summer!
      And thank you, Carrie, I appreciate your words so much too!

    I love white! I have many white summer dresses, my mom and I always feel pretty and fresh in white dresses! White and gold is actually one of my favourite combinations (my dorm room theme and style was all white and gold) it is just so fresh and happy to me! Hope your having a great week!

    1. Carrie says:

      Oh how cool about your dorm room! I’d love to see it.

      You’re exactly right – white is so fresh.

      Thanks so much! Aren’t they fun?

    Great post Carrie,I love white dresses but I don’t tend to wear them often because Im very pale… I don’t even get tanned in the summer lol.. All those dresses are super pretty thought!!!! sending you love


    1. Carrie says:

      You could still totally pull off a white dress! Maybe more of a cream shade…

  8. My only white dress is … My weeding dress (but it is a Paula Ka, and a mid-long one so I can wear it on summer).
    I think that being a little tanned is necessary to wear it well (but maybe it is my thoughts because I do not tan well or much ;+))

    1. Carrie says:

      Oh it sounds lovely! You should totally give white dresses another try this summer. 🙂

    Beautiful outfit and photos! I love that it is so flowy and has gold accents on it. And that brick wall is such a pretty background. Awesome photoshoot!
