What’s your secret to wearing white?

June 11, 2009

For me, the warm weather can never come too soon. Not only do I love the spring and summer, but I can’t wait to wear white again! Such a crisp and fresh look. I love the way bold colors bounce right off white, it’s just a show-stopping combination. White pants with a turquoise top, white dress with daring colored accessories or a white skirt with playful sandals; the opportunities are endless.

One thing that puts a damper on all of these wonderful options is that no matter how hard I try, I end up completely dirty by the end of the day. It’s been costing me a fortune in dry cleaning already and it’s only the middle of June! Am I just such a slob or is this a common thing

How do you stay clean in your gorgeous white pieces? Any tips to get out the grossness on your white clothes without spending a fortune? What does your favorite white outfit look like?

A few of my favorites:
Marisa White Denim Capris – $49.50
White Denim Mini Skirt – $39.50
Floral Burnout Skirt – $39.50
Sheath Dress with Pleated Trim – $69.00

What to pair them with:
Ruffle Trim Tank in Coral – $24.50
Smocked Button Front Top in Blue – $46.50
Pucker Check Squareneck Top in Haze – $39.50

Shocking Style Steals: The perfect summer outfits for under $50!

I decided to take a look in Old Navy yesterday and to my surprise there were tons of really cute dresses, shorts and sandals. I haven’t shopped in Old Navy in ages, so I figured…why not experiment. I got an arm full of clothes and headed to the dressing room, figuring nothing would look cute at all, but to be honest, everything was great! It was hard to choose just 1 item, so, I allowed myself to purchase 1 outfit (dress, sunglasses and sandals)…all for a whopping $48.50! There were so many cute outfits I could have come up with for under $50 as well…take a look!

Would you step foot in Old Navy? Which under $50 outfit do you like best?
