Summer Whites and Gold Necklaces

I'm a firm believer in wearing white all year round, and especially love me some winter whites. But there is just something so crisp and refreshing about summer whites. With the 4th of July just around the corner, I have found the perfect white summery dress - just pair with some red or blue accessories, and finish the look with gold necklaces and boom you're ready to sit on a cozy blanket and watch the fireworks!

Maxi Dress {Comes in 5 colors and is less than $30} | Sandals {Only $18}Necklace | Bracelet | Double RingSunglasses | Clutch | Lipstick


I styled this dress with these $18 Valentino dupes and my favorite blush pink and rose gold accessories along with a soft pink lipstick for a subtle pop. I layered the lipstick over my favorite chapstick as a base which helped it stay in place all afternoon and evening. Major bonus points in the summer! Anything that keeps me nice and cool, my hair from frizzing, and my makeup from disappearing this time of year in Florida is a win-win for me! 


*Dramatic open back and breezy for the summer heat*





*This dress is also perfect for twirling*









And we can't forget my all time favorite summer white - my wedding dress! Today we are celebrating our 9th wedding anniversary, and it's craziness to me that next year will be a full decade since we said "I Do". Where has the time gone? I can't believe it's already time to start thinking about a big 10th anniversary trip. I remember when that felt SO far away. Also time to start saving my pennies! Nine years, a big move to Florida from Connecticut, a perfect sassy little girl, and further along (and happier) in our careers later... here we are.

  24. I love a good white maxi dress though they are not easy to find - I think. But you found the perfect one and it is just as lovely from the back as it is from the font. Love the crochet cups. Also, Happy 9th Anniversary Kate! How old is your daughter now?!
