Little White Dress

One of my go-to pieces for spring and summer is the little white dress. It's super versatile - easy to dress up or down and easy to pair neutral pieces or colorful accessories! On his particular day I was all about color! I paired my favorite yellow Nine West bag that I got a few years ago with these bright Ann Taylor sandals and a thrifted necklace. Summers in the city can get hot and humid but bars or restaurants sometimes have the AC blasting, so it's never a bad idea to bring an extra layer with you. My favorite layer to add over a sundress is a denim jacket - I swear, denim jackets look good with any casual summer dress!MODCLOTH DRESS (Similar) | OLD NAVY JACKET | LOFT SUNGLASSES | THRIFTED NECKLACE | LOFT BELT | MICHAEL KORS WATCH | ANN TAYLOR SANDALS | NINE WEST PURSE (Old)

Shop this look (and more white dresses!):
I think that these LOFT sunglasses are my favorite pair right now. I've worn them in two other recent blog posts including with this green maxi dress and this chambray jumpsuit. I still have yet to invest in an expensive pair of sunglasses, but with the way I go through sunglasses I think I would be a little too nervous for that! On another note - this week I have paired up once again with Philly-blogger Sarah from Shades of Sarah on how to wear a LWD. Check out her adorable look below, I love how she paired this green jacket with her dress for an extra layer! Also - I'm loving those sandals. Check out the last time we teamed up to share how we styled clogs.
