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!
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…
