One of my favorite Kate Spade quotes is “Live Colorfully.” And along Long Beach’s Shoreline Village, that line immediately popped into my head. What awaits is a rainbow of buildings and walls splashed in neon hues along the cutest little shopping strip. Talk about a beautiful backdrop for this stunning white eyelet dress!
I’ve had a crush on eyelet pieces for as long as I can remember. It seems springier than lace and so femme! This neckline on this dress is one of my favorite cuts — it’s so flattering! And do you see the subtle scallops on the bottom? I love!! The waistline drops down just under the ribcage, which adds to the gracefulness. Abercrombie has been nailing it lately — they’ve really stepped up their collections, and I’ve found the pieces to prove it, including the dress I wore here and this shirt I wore in Boston here.
As for the rest of my outfit, my lace-up shoes — similar pair found here — are a staple. And of course (speaking of living colorfully!), I love Kate Spade for handbags. Some of my favorite bags from their line include this pink crossbody, this incredible blush feathered clutch, and this cute blue tote. I curled my hair with a 2 1/2 inch curling wand to achieve bigger waves. For my make-up, I focused on highlighting my eyes and did a brighter lip.
This dress is gorgeous for summer and comfortable to wear. It’s on sale right now for $40 and perfect if you have an event coming up and are looking for something to wear. There’s no such thing as too many white dresses (if you’re looking to rush a sorority in the fall, you will definitely need a white dress at some point during the process, and this would be perfect to get a head start on your wardrobe!).
