Summer Whites

IMG_0847

Summer time is finally upon us…time for family barbecues, lazy days at the beach and SUMMER WHITES!   

Although I have now lived in South Florida for a number of years, where temperatures are generally at a year-round high,  I will always be a New Yorker that prefers to wait until the “summer” to wear white.   In the summer, I add all sorts of white pieces to my wardrobe rotation, including crisp white shorts, preppy white tunics,  casual white skimmers and my favorite is any kind of knee-length, white dress.  

With well-chosen accessories such as aviator-style sunglasses oa straw fedora, summers whites can be dressed down with relative ease.  Yet, add a punch of color or a fabulous designer bag, and your summer white is ready to go glam!

What’s your favorite summer white wardrobe item?

Twirl, Twirl – Tutu/Tulle skirt

BCBG tulle tutu skirt

I’ve always considered myself the ultimate girly-girl so it comes as no surprise that I absolutely love thtulle, tutu skirt trend.  I searched high and low for the perfect one – and I finally purchased one yesterday in BCBG.  

I love the versatility of this skirt.  I’ve already purchased several  pieces I plan to coordinate along with my skirt including a striped cropped top in Guess (for the low price of $10 after 50% off with an additional 40% – SCORE!), also bought a cute little bow sweater via Poshmark.  

Here are a few of the  looks I’m planning.  How would you style this fabulous skirt?
