Nothing combats summer heat quite like a crisp, cool, all-white ensemble. This simple and deceptively easy to put together look has that special “it” factor…. one that perfectly combines “on-trend” and “utterly timeless,” and makes this aesthetic one I sport frequently during the months of June and July. But the key to creating a perfect all=white look is not what you might expect… it’s all in the accessories!
SHIRT bell sleeve top (wearing XS) | NECKLACE double layer necklace | BAG reversible mini tote bag | SUNGLASSES round tortoise shell sunglasses (only $7!) | SHOES ankle strap wedges (on sale for $17) | JEANS white skinny jeans | WATCH gold watch | BRACELET tory burch wrap bracelet
A big part of what makes the all-white look so appealing is it’s instant freshness. Rather than viewing the white as a neutral, and therefore a canvas for colorful accessories, view it as your statement. Everything you complete your all-white with should allow the white to shine, so stick with neutral, streamlined, classic details in similar neutral shades.
In this outfit in particular, I wanted to play up the beautiful bell sleeves of this $44 top. (Such a great summer buy, friends.) I stuck with caramel shades, adding in a pair of fun $7 tortoise shell sunglasses and elongating ankle strap wedges. (This pair is from H&M, and looks far more expensive than $17 in my opinion!)
You’ll also notice the cutest little cross body that’s new to the blog today! Y’all… remember the reversible tote we all went crazy for this past fall? Nordstrom has made a mini, and it’s the cutest thing! Classic, reversible, versatile, and at a great price point. Grab it here before it sells out!
Finally, I finished off the look with a stunning necklace designed by one of my dear friends, Madeline. As my friend Marge described it, “It’s feminine but fierce.” A little out of my comfort zone, and I love it. Check out more of Madeline’s amazing designs here!
I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! Sadly, I had my nose to the grind for nearly all of it. The good news, though, is it was in order to get ready for a junior high inner-city service project I get to help out with this week! Already excited to see how the Lord uses these 6th-8th graders in big ways. Wishing lots of blessings over your week!
Love from Texas,
