A few weeks ago I talked about my love of summer whites, especially when you’ve got that sun-kissed summer glow going on. Something about that summer heat just screams a need for bright whites and bright colors, which was definitely the inspiration for today’s outfit.
White in the summer is the easiest thing to style in the world, because, for the most part, you let the accessories add the interest and let the white speak for itself. It’s, literally, a blank canvas for your accessories and I am an accessory junkie, so it’s no wonder that I wait all year round to bust out the white dresses again. In the sweltering heat of summer, there’s nothing that feels cleaner than a fresh, white dress or t-shirt. I mean there is just something swoon-worthy about a guy in blue jeans and a white tee — am I right?

Chunky Necklace – Local boutique (similar style necklaces)
Beaded Clutch – Local boutique (similar style clutch)
Anyway, for this one, I picked out some of my brightest accessories and wanted to make the clutch the focal point of the outfit so I kept the other accessories solid, but still bright. Looking back, I think I could have added a little more color, but overall I loved being about to show off the shoes and the clutch because, you know, I’m a show off. Or something. I think this combination of style would work for a day date or a night out, but white just works for everything, doesn’t it?
