White Summer Dress & Nautical Accessories
We're taking all about this fun, dressed up Summer look, featuring a white dress with nautical accessories in today's post! Summer is here (or almost here depending on where you live) and Memorial Day is around the corner so of course, the summer dresses are coming out of the closet! So let's dive in with today's OOTD!
A Summer White Dress
When Summer rolls around, you know it's time for dresses and this white dress is a great example of a versatile dress that you could wear all season long to different events. Unfortunately, it's sold out everywhere, but I've linked very similar dresses underneath. What we're looking for, however is a flowy, fun dress. White dresses like these make for a fantastic canvas with which to have fun through your accessories. You can go for loud, summer colors, or a nautical look like I do here - especially if you're near the ocean, or lake. Being that I was in Miami, and was visiting the famous Vizcaya mansion and gardens, I thought the white + nautical look would be a win.
The right white dress will feel at home in varying locations. For example, I see white dresses as the perfect vacation dress - think of a dinner in a sea-side resort or town during your next vacation. Or a hot summer date night or date at the fair, as well.
But a white dress also lends itself to more dressy occasions too. For example, this could be your own bridal shower dress (because we never wear white to someone else's bridal shower). Or a baby shower as well.
If you have any dressed up summer events (daytime or nighttime), you can style a white summer dress as well. Needless to say, summer white dresses are very versatile and let's face it: we all need a LWD (Little White Dress) in our wardrobe.
For the accessories, as I was in Miami, and near the sea, I opted for nautical. These shoes are gorgeous and are from Aldo (by way of DSW). They are a great heel with a striped, nautical blue design. These can go with almost anything - dresses, denim, jumpsuits, you name it!
The bag itself is a super fun blue box bag with sea life embossed on it. You see a little friend of Nemo, Dori, a star fish and more. So again, if you're visiting a seaside destinations this Summer, or you yourself live seaside, this is a fun bag to add to your closet as well.
I loved this look and hope you like the images. Let me know in the comments below your thoughts on the look and how you would style this dress!
