How is it already July? Much more, mid July? This summer is flying by! Getting engaged in March has launched a whole new fashion obsession- white dresses. I had always felt a little odd in gorgeous, white dresses. I felt I was too messy for it, or that they were too elegant for everyday wear. However, I have found that little white dresses are a perfect summertime staple, bride-to-be or not!
This one is from ChicWish, and I am obsessed with all of the details. The delicate button-up front, tiered skirt, and intricate lace detailing makes this maxi so special. The buttons are functional, so you could heave it unbuttoned on top, make more of a slit at the bottom, or even unbutton it entirely as a beach coverup! There is lace and crochet detailing down to the hem, and to the puff sleeves- which just makes it feel so special. I am petite at 5'3", so finding maxis that I don't have to wear huge heels with is a struggle. But this one is the perfect length for me to wear with either flat sandals or small heels in the summertime. It is also so lightweight and flowy, so it is cool enough to wear in the Texas summers! This would be a darling choice for engagement photos as well.
I paired it with my go-to white sandals, some daisy earrings, and a simple pendant necklace from Kendra Scott. I also got my engagement ring in the mail, so enjoy the excitement in these last few pictures. I just couldn't help it!
White dresses- love 'em or not your thang? Let me know!
