White is the staple color for a California summer, and I am wearing plenty of it this season. I like that white is versatile and can be dressed up with any type of accessory and shoe, not to mention that white looks great on tan skin. This season I really like brown wedges because they go with any type of outfit. I am also accessorizing with reds and corals. Above are two similar looks at two completely different prices, demonstrating that you can look great without breaking the bank.

How do you wear your white?

  2. Hi Marcie - lovely ideas here. Sadly white is the preserve of proper sunny Summer which has so far yet to come here in the UK! When it does though I have a whole wardrobe ready! Hurry up. L x

  3. hi :D

    I agree white is absolutely gorgeous especially for summer!

    It's so easy to dress it up too!

    I like wearing white then adding a random pop of color such as bright blue!

  13. The Carven dress is so pretty. I love wearing nude shoes with white dresses and maybe a colorful bag or jewelry. I love the way you paired the brown shoes and red accessories!
