Wearing white in the summertime is such a crisp, clean look. I particularly love dresses with many white eyelet layers because they add elegance and timelessness to any silhouette. This fun mini dress combines several of my favorite aspects of a good dress, like eyelets, ruffles, layers, and scallop details. Since it’s all the same color, it’s simpler and more understated, which makes it feel sophisticated yet easy to throw on and go.
This spring, I’ve been wearing lots of white, even when working out. After my tennis lessons, I headed to a local flower shop to pick up these beautiful soft pink peonies, and I loved how easy it was to move from working out to running errands in this comfortable white tennis dress for spring. This time of year, I want to spend as much time as I can outside, enjoying the beautiful weather and doing as much as I can to have fun and enjoy our time living on the East Coast. I’m so thankful for all of the new adventures we’ve had since moving out here, and I hope the blog posts I have coming up this spring and summer inspire you to explore our corner of the world too!
I love pretty dresses, particularly when they’re pink with a floral print. It’s even better when they’re sustainably handmade of organic cotton! This Monsoon & Beyond Dress is precisely that. This soft, easy-to-wear dress with full sleeves and an asymmetrical scoop hem is something I wore on our recent visit to Atlanta, GA, during our tour of the Atlanta Botanical Garden. I received many compliments on it, ranging from a Southern bell to a woodland fairy princess, the latter of which is essentially the best compliment I could have ever received!

I feel like everything becomes brighter this time of year, including my footwear, and I love getting dressed in clothing made for warmer weather. That’s why I love to break out my favorite Diamond White Croc Tieks. They also just released the White Lotus Tieks, which are also beautiful! The distinctive teal sole, the lush leather of these flats, and the fact that they’re so easy to pack and travel with make them a pair I find myself reaching for over and over again as the weather warms up.
I love summertime neutrals, and light, flowy neutrals. That’s why Summer Essentials Volume 6 is comprised of lightweight, billowy linen pieces, woven basket bags, bright footwear, clean beauty that I use and love, and other lightweight, summer accessories. I hope this roundup helps you have a wonderful, stylish summer!
I’ve tried lots of great white tennis shoes in my life, but the 3 pairs I’m going to share with you today have by far been my favorite in terms of how they look, how they feel, how long they take to break in, and how easy they are to keep clean. I hope this helps you find a pair of white tennis shoes you love!
I think tie-shoulder dresses are my favorite style of dresses, because they are so comfortable, easy to throw on, and they look effortlessly put together. This beautiful tie-shoulder dress from Juliet Dunn is a floral-print cotton-voile dream in bright pinks and greens against a crisp, cool white which makes it easy to throw on for warmer weather. I wore this in Charleston to lunch and shopping at the Charleston Place shops on our second day, and I was simply smitten with how much fun this dress was to wear.
I’ve been really excited about warmer weather so that I can break out my extensive collection of dresses. While back home in Connecticut, the weather is still a bit chilly, particularly in the mornings and evenings.
