Little white dresses have become my number one favorite item for summer. My closet is full of them. From delicate lace details to eyelets and minimalist vibes, white dresses are a staple every woman needs in her closet! I discovered this dress while searching for a summer dress to wear to a Ryan’s graduation ceremony. I instantly fell in love and ordered it.

Although I ended up wearing a different dress for the graduation, I’ve worn this one to several occasions and have dressed it up for an evening date night and down for happy hour margaritas with the girls. If I could only wear one dress all summer long, it would be this one. And bonus, it’s 100% cotton, fully lined and has bra snaps to hold your bra in place… what more could a woman need out of a dress!


For date night, I styled this dress with these shoes and this clutch and then wore these earrings  with my hair pulled back! Because this dress has so much detail to it, I kept the accessories simple and paired down!



To style this dress for a casual day out followed by happy hour or brunch with friends, I would wear simple sandals and again, keep the accessories to a minimum. I chose to wear a necklace and the same clutch but dressed it down with these sandals, and their on sale! I’ve linked some more sandals that I love for every budget below!

I hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July holiday! We’re planning to enjoy a low key day starting with our neighborhood parade and concert in the park and end it with an afternoon at home relaxing on our new deck!

After all the commotion over the past month, a day off to relax is exactly what we need as a family! Anyways, Happy 4th and be safe out there!
