You guys, I went for it.  Went for what you ask?  A WHITE DRESS.  My goodness, the anxiety that normally comes with a white dress… Can you see through it?  Is my underwear line visible? What about in this light?  How about that light?  What if I turn this way and stick my butt out a little bit?  (I seriously do this when determining the sheerness of a fabric I am wearing.  My boyfriend gets a kick out of it every time.)

When I first read that the fabric used to make this dress was opaque, my first thought was “Mmmmhmmmm. In your dreams.”  But, against my better judgement, I went for it anyway.  I mean is there a more quintessentially summer piece than a white halter dress?  I’m here to tell you folks, there is not.  You know that though, right?  So there I was when the package came, waiting to see right through this dress as I put it on, just to be pleasantly proven wrong by the geniuses over at Marie Hell.  Can you imagine?  A white dress that you can’t see right through?  Impossible!  Can you see through this dress though?  No my friends, you cannot.  

So here I am, going about my lovely business in my opaque white dress!  I wanted to add a little color (always), so went for this pink hat almost immediately.  Black band around pink hat?  Well that calls for black boots I think!   Black boots?  I think that means black purse!  

Oh.  Nope.  

A black bag was just not vibin’, which sometimes happen in the wild world of fashion, so I was on to the next!  But what’s next?  This little bag that, although I have had since maybe 4th grade or so, somehow becomes relevant again with this outfit.  A little silver, a little navy, quite a bit of boxy, and you have the perfect accessory for this outfit!  Just one last thing, as I was running out the door, I realized I might get cold.  Yes, I said it, COLD.  In July.  LA is weird man!  It’s all of 75 degrees today, which I know is still warm, but as the sun starts to set even a tiny bit there is a definite need for a light sweater and on went this colorful striped little number and out the door I went!  

I hope your wardrobe adventures are as entertaining as I think mine are.  No really though…
