White Stripes

Summer has pretty much come and gone, so I had to squeeze in a few more summer styles before the seasons change!
I made a love connection this summer: My white skort from zara! I'll be sad to put it away for awhile , but will definitely pull it out next spring! It might even make a winter white appearance with tights and booties... stay tuned!
I love love LOVE to layer, but on a hot and sticky NYC summer day, lathering up in layers was the last think I wanted to do! This outfit provided a simple solution: I layered with a short sleeve top to help beat the heat! So I was still able to get the layering look without sweating to death.
If you're short like me (I'm 5 foot nothing!) an all white look can sometimes shrink you, and no one wants that! So if you are choosing to do white on white, make sure you 1) define your waist at it's smallest and highest point (like I did with my knotted top), this will make you look longer and 2) Go with a nude shoe, they always help elongate! Even a strappy sandal (like mine) that might usually chop you up and make you look shorter, can help lengthen legs when it's the right nude!

  1. The white stripes are a definitely great pop of color against this white outfit! I really like the color of your bag too.

    Very chic outfit.
