I don’t know why but for some reason I’m little white dress obsessed this season. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been afraid of wearing white. It’s so easy to get it dirty. There’s also that whole thing about how wearing white can make you look heavier than you really are. I’ve decided not to care about those things anymore. Life is way too short to avoid wearing something because of fear. Besides, it’s so chic! I always feel sophisticated and elegant when I wear white. Lately, I find that I’ve been wanting to wear it more and more!
The white dress I’m wearing today is one that I’ve had for about 2 years now. It’s a Helmut Lang dress and I got it on a major sale at Barneys. Can you believe I’ve never actually worn it? I honestly didn’t feel confident wearing it before. As a person who’s 5’5 I didn’t think I was tall or thin enough. I can tell you this, confidence is key if you have any interest in wearing white. It’s one of those fabrics that demands it. Since the dress pretty much speaks for itself, I decided not to over accessorize. The beautiful white/rose gold watch I’m wearing is from Daniel Wellington. Between the watch, my delicate necklace from Kendra Scott and my favorite earrings from Jami, this was all my white dress needed!

I’m so in love with this dress. I still can’t believe it took me so long to wear it! Since I’m no longer afraid of wearing white, you can bet I’ll be wearing more of it this summer!
