White Summer

white maxi dress

Bloody hell.  New York is baking right now. I reckon I found this dress just in time.

Waiting to eat at one of my fave restaurants…

Dress: Solitaire Swim at TJ Maxx. Similar by Shop RuchasMelissa Odabash or Basta Surf (both on sale) Sandals: Kurt Geiger.  Hat: Walmart.  Bag: Thrift & DIY studded. Shades: Foldable Ray Bans.  Bracelet: House of Harlow: Found a similar from the line on sale. Necklaces: Jennifer Zeuner
I think the dress is meant as a cover up for swimming – hence the name.  I was actually in there looking for cycling shorts (don’t ask) when I saw it hanging on the end of an aisle.  I saw this crochet trim one online which’d be brilliant for right now as well. 

Outside of whites, ditsy prints are still my favourites in summer – remember this one on Dusty who I stopped once? Still haven’t forgotten it.

    Funny you bring up the cycle shorts…found some for under dress/skirt thing (that’s what i wanted
    them for; a la 1990’s) at Charlotte Russe. They are more like a thick control top pantyhose
    with lace trim on legs. They are perfect for when the wind grabs the dress. That way no one
    sees the underwear.

    Stunning as always my London Lady!

    Ooooooh how gorgeous is this dress. I love white maxi dresses, just don’t often have the bright, sunny weather to wear them her in good old Blighty

    Recently I’ve been using this app called Mavatar on both my iPad and web browser that offers great deals on big name department stores. When you add items to your cart on department store websites the app compiles it all and adds all the available discounts to your purchase so you can get the best price possible. I totally recommend it and it’s really easy to get started. http://mavatar.com

    Gorgeous dress and you look fab in it. Now tell me: what kind of sunscreen are you using? I am especially interested in knowing what you use on your face. Have you found one that doesn’t leave chalky, white marks on your skin and that is at least SPF 30? If so, please share. I think we have similar skin tones and I have already had one melanoma removed. I really don’t want another!

      Hello love!

      I use SAGE. Google the brand. It’s Sage Skincare. They have a cream that’s spf 24 or 25. I use that year round. No white look and dries to nothing. That’s for the face : )

      Thank you so much, Karen. I’ll try it!
