White On White

Other than having to avoid red wine & pasta sauce (because I will inevitably spill on myself), I love the idea of an all-white outfit because it's timeless & chic.  The trick to making a monochromatic work look is to add interest by incorporating different textures.  Wearing pieces that are all the same shade allows you to have some fun with your accessories - a few well-placed pops of color are all you need to really make a statement.  Or you could go graphic with your look by adding contrasting black accents and gold hardware (like this woven clutch & these drop earrings) - even better if you finish the look with a bright red lip!

I actually ordered this skirt online for my daughter, but when it arrived & I saw how cute it was in person, I quickly informed her that we would be "closet-sharing" this particular item (one of the benefits of having a teenager).  It also comes in black & navy or two pretty prints + right now it's 40% off with code SUNSHINE, making it less than 15$!  

I like that both this top & skirt are fully lined - there's nothing more frustrating than trying on a cute white garment only to find that it's see-through.  I also appreciate how comfortable this combination is - even though it's a more dressed-up outfit, the elastic waist & blousy top mean I can comfortably indulge on date night without worry.  Bring on the dessert!

What I'm wearing:
Bar III Top, Old Navy Skirt, ShoeMint Sandals (similar), 
Target Earrings (similar here or here), Mar Y Sol Clutch (similar), 
Nails: Orly Passion Fruit, Lips: Rimmel London (Dashing Raspberry)
