The Perfect Summer Dress

Dress c/o // Shoes // Handbag (under $25!) // Hat // Celine Sunglasses Dupes (under $20!): here & here // Necklace c/o // Lipstick (in “JuJu”)

This may just be the perfect dress. A crisp white shirt dress is such a versatile piece. You can style it for the office or, as I did here, for a more casual weekend look. This particular dress is great for a number of reasons: 

1) It has pockets (If you saw my facebook yesterday, you 
    understand my love of pockets haha);
2) It has hidden buttons between each button on the chest
    (in other words, the dreaded ‘gapping’ is not a problem) and;
3) The length. This dress is cut just long enough to be work
    day appropriate (score!)

I also have to share my excitement over these Celine dupes. The Celine “baby audrey” sunglasses have been the “it” item all summer. Finding affordable look-a-likes was thus hugely exciting for me.

I hope you all had an amazing weekend (and to my American readers – Happy Independence Day!). I am so happy to finally be celebrating summer here in Vancouver. I am back at work today, but am already planning a beach bbq for after work this week. Bring on the sun, sand, and ice cold drinks!

      Isn't it awesome!? I totally agree about the belt I love it! I also can see changing it out for any piece of bright ribbon to change the color scheme!

    Looks great on you! I like white dress but hate wearing slip during summer because can get really hot. Was the dress see through or lined?

      Thank you!
      Ahh i TOTALLY agree – that is the problem with wearing white! I didn't have to wear a slip under this so I'd say it was pretty good! I would have liked it to be a bit thicker to be less see-through, but I'd give it about an 8/10 for passing the see-through test.
