In the Mood for…White Dresses + Straw Bags.

In the autumn and winter, it’s J Brand jeans, cashmere crewnecks, and Kule tees.

In the spring, it’s borderline seasonally-inappropriate floral dresses given that I pull them out in March and it’s rarely warm enough for them until May.

In the summer, it’s white dresses and basket bags.

A roundup of excellent LWDs I’m eyeing for this season:

IN LOVE WITH THIS STAUD — PERFECTION

MOST ROMANTIC DRESS I’VE EVER SEEN

CANNOT BELIEVE THIS IS $80 — MAJOR ZIMMERMANN VIBES

BREEZY, POOLSIDE-READY GOODNESS (YOU KNOW I AM A SUCKER FOR A BOW SHOULDER TIE)

THIS REBECCA TAYLOR IS BEYOND

ON-TREND AND ON-SALE FROM INNIKA CHOO (LOVE EVERYTHING I HAVE PURCHASED FROM THIS LABEL)

ANYTHING PAM MUNSON (I WEAR MY ISLA BAHIA TOTE AND PINK CHARLOTTE CLUTCH CONSTANTLY)

CURRENTLY LUSTING AFTER THIS LOEWE FOR SUMMER

THIS $60 STEAL, WHICH REMINDS ME OF A STYLE FROM BALENCIAGA A FEW SEASONS BACK

THESE SPARROW WEAVE BAGS, WHICH ARE A LESS EXPENSIVE VARIATION ON THE ICONIC MARK CROSS STYLE (THOUGH STILL NOT CHEAP!)

THESE CUSTOMIZABLE POOLSIDE TOTES (DO I NEED ONE THAT SAYS: MAGPIE ON THE SIDE?!)

For corresponding footwear, I am loving:

THESE KAANAS, WHICH LOOK LIKE ALEXANDRE BIRMAN

THESE CHANELS

THESE WEAR-WITH-EVERYTHING $60 LEATHER SLIDES

THESE BOW FLAT SANDALS

P.S. These pool slides are having a MOMENT right now.

P.P.S. My favorite Etsy sources and my favorite affordable stationery finds.

P.P.P.S. Loungewear heaven.

  1. YES to white dresses and straw bags! I was just thinking that more than half my closet is made up of white blouses/dresses, even if it means I’m asking for trouble with my toddler’s sticky fingers 😉 White is just so refreshing and refined, no matter the season. Heart eyes for that Rebecca Taylor dress!

    For straw bags, may I also recommend the brand Aranaz, which is handmade in the Philippines (I sort of know the designer — my sister-in-law’s sister-in-law, ha!). I can’t resist their bags whenever I make a trip home. They are so unique and well-made — I always get compliments when I carry one of their bags, and I’m always proud to say they’re made in the country where I am from 🙂 I was happy to see them in some retailers here like Shopbop, Anthro, and Tuckernuck!

    1. Oo thank you for the rec! So cool!! I love them!

      Me too — I have way too many white dresses/shirts and I really can’t even legitimize them, but I love the look. xx

  2. Oh, I love a white dress! That Aje is perfection.

    I think you would like Bembien bags, if you haven’t already heard of them — really beautiful woven bags in rattan, straw, or leather. I have the Marfa bag and wear it all the time in the summer or on vacation!

    xx
