If I didn’t like white//cream lace dresses so much, I can’t even begin to tell you how much money I would have saved in my lifetime. I wear them all year long, saving the pure whites for the spring and summer months. My newest love comes in the form of this Staring at Stars pretty from Urban Outfitters– so romantic and whimsy!

Anyone else have a bit of a lust for lace?
On a daily basis, I try to dress by a certain “live colorfully” motto. Yet even I can’t deny that a black and white ensemble is always classic and chic. A black blazer is a closet staple, and I first got the idea to pair them with white dresses + rainboots from this shot of Reese Witherspoon. The bow headband and tassel purse are my own fun additions :)

Last week we talked LBDs, but this week it’s Little White Dresses I have on my mind.
When the weather is warm, I just love slipping into easy breezy little white dresses [see here and here for past instances!]. Until summer hits, many choose to avoid white, though I fully believe LWDs can certainly still work in chillier months. I’ve seen a ton about winter white lately, and I’m a huge advocate for it, especially in dress form. A higher neckline, purer shade of crisp snow white, and wintery details all help with winter LWD’s case. French Connection has an overwhelming supply of women’s dresses, and I’ve pulled a few of my favorites.

And at the same time, it is January. Which means we are in the deepest part of winter and yet the fashion world is busy thinking about way warmer temperatures! So for dreaming of months ahead…
Are you a fan of winter white, or do you prefer to wait until Labor Day?
