My Favorite All-White Summer Look

Hi, friends! Popping in today with this outfit I shot in Charleston last month.

How was everyone’s weekend?

Mine was awesome—Monica and I had our first catch-up date in over a month, and we enjoyed an amazing three-course meal at Tupelo Honey. Needless to say, there were ample leftovers. If you go, get the fried green tomatoes, you won’t regret it! Then, I was able to pop by Nordstrom Pentagon City for a wonderful brunch they hosted for bloggers to chat all about the awesome Anniversary Sale going on—you can see my picks here. I topped off the weekend with the Zac Brown Band concert. If you ever get the chance to see him live, do it! He is amazing.

I bought this Zara White Lace Top right before the trip, and it has quickly become one of my favorite shirts for work and play.  Though when I originally posted about this top in this What I Actually Wear to Work it was sold out, I am happy to report that it is back in stock in all sizes. And, at $50, it’s a great classic basic to have in your wardrobe. It is obviously completely see-through, so I usually wear it with a white cami, but a bralette would be cute, too.

If you’re looking for a less timeless investment, I am obsessed with my Botkier Gigi Embellished Sandals. The teal color I’m wearing here is sold out online, but check back as Nordstrom may restock these beauties. Fear not though, they also come in three other colors—including a beautiful neutral. I will be honest—these shoes would be hard to walk in for a long period of time, like a wedding. However, they’re perfect for a girls dinner out or if you sit at a desk all day at work like me.

One last thing about the outfit—these LOFT Modern Skinny Jeans are my absolute favorite—I’ve had them for 2 years now and also own them in black. I buy the petite length, and they work really well for my body type. (I’m wearing a 29 for reference and have found they don’t really stretch over time.)

Okay, enough about the outfit—one last thing before I go—the picture above as it was taken at The Dewberry’s Living Room Bar, which my friends and I ended up loving last month when we were in Charleston. We ended up drinking many a spiked La Croix cocktails there and it has quickly jumped to the top of my hotel bars list! Definitely stop in for a drink if you’re in Charleston.

  2. Those sandals.. omg. Swoon! Love them with all white, especially! I love LOFT jeans, too – just bought the curvy straight pair in white which is much better for me than skinny jeans!
