Fall Whites.


Are Fall whites an actual thing? Probably not, but in my little world, they most definitely are. So there. I fell in love with this Rebecca Taylor dress the second I saw it (I also love the top version.) I’m a sucker for great details and the tiered skirt, mesh insets, and lace sleeves had me immediately sold. The weight is a bit heavier than the lace dresses I wore all summer, making it great for Fall. I really love the idea of making a LWD more cold weather appropriate with thigh high boots. If your dress is sleeveless, add a leather jacket or a blazer and voila… ready for the cooler weather!

    Thank you!

    this outfit is fantastic for so many reasons, especially because i love how the skirt overlaps the boots JUST a bit. enough to not need (or at least show) tights. i think that’s super cool!

    Really pretty dress. One thing I can’t stand though about fall/winter winter whites is that their actually ivory. For instance, on http://www.anthropologie.com everything was actually white all spring/summer and now all ivory. Drives me crazy as I am light blond haired – white skinned
