The Best Little White Dress for Summer!

SUMMER. We’re basically here. I still can’t really believe that Monday was Memorial Day. I booked my yoga retreat without realizing it was over MDW so that just came and went!

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that I love a good little white dress. So once things warm up, it’s out with the LBDs and in with the LWDs. When I spotted this one from French Connection at Bloomies, it was love at first sight. The back has a little bit of stretch which ensures a perfect fit, and I love the eyelet + lace details. So pretty! I paired it with pretty turquoise earrings and my go-to straw tote (perfect for the beach, running  errands in the city, or an afternoon in the park). I wouldn’t mind being a little more tan, but I’m trying my best to embrace the pale.

French Connection has so many cute dresses right now. It was a struggle to choose a favorite. I knew I’d get a LOT of wear out of this little white one but I also love this red dress, this more formal white lace dress (would be so fun for a bachelorette party or shower), and this glam maxi (that slit!). I put a few others in the widget at the bottom of the post as well. French Connection is one of those brands that always fits me and has great quality at a reasonable price point.

  1. Little white dresses are the classic daytime little black dresses – in fact, I like them even more than the LBD! White is such a lovely colour to wear for summer! 🙂

    This white dress looks beautiful, and I think that long sleeved yellow one has stolen my heart. I have a tank that looks very similar to that, and it’s one of my favorite pieces in my closet. Cheers to summer! xAllie

    That dress is so flattering on you! I’m always hesitant to buy or wear white this time of year because I’m still so pale from the winter. (laying out takes more time + patience than I have, I can’t get past the skin cancer possibility of tanning beds, and spray tans, while a better option than tanning beds, always seem weird to me. Spraying color on your skin!) Maybe I’ll embrace the pale too. 🙂
