The Little White Dress

Summer lovin', had me a blast.

Summer is in full swing and though NYC has treated us pretty well this year, there are still those undeniably humid days that are the kind of summer days we all know so well. I've been really loving light, casual summer dresses because they are the perfect wear-to-work item {for me at least}. They're not too fabric-y where it's stifling during your morning commute, and it's so easy to grab a denim jacket or your favorite cardigan to throw on over it at the office. This one is a new favorite. I ordered it a few weeks back before I left for LA, so I didn't receive it until I got home last week. I was so sad I couldn't bring it along with me on vacation, but I've already worn it twice since getting back {anyone feeling a three-peat??}. 

Little white dress could mean a lot of things to a lot of different people, but for me I think this dress truly embodies the idea of a little white dress. It doesn't try too hard and it doesn't make you look like you're trying too hard either. After all, the color white is probably the most tried and true color in the world, next to black. And next to it's counter part, white really is a color that doesn't try too hard at all. 

And if we're being honest, I think white and denim is my favorite color combination {given that denim is actually a color, but in my books it totally is}.

And yes, this dress comes with some beautiful embroidery detail :) It's one of my favorite parts of the design!

  2. I love the dress!! It looks like it's super comfortable as well, since it's not too clingy. Sometimes, I just need something looser because tight clothes and hot weather just aren't pleasant!

  3. In this dress if the side seams (are cut), left open below the waist-line, give the wearer greater freedom of movement, it becomes the Indian dress known as kameez, which is wear with the Salwar. Look how the Indian traditional dress is similar to this one with latest designer kurtis for women
