The LWD (Little White Dress) is one of those wardrobe staples that gets a lot of mileage during the short summer season. Boasting the same easy-to-wear status as its darker counterpart (the little black dress), the LWD is totally versatile and can be dressed up or down for nearly any summertime occasion. Except, of course, if you’re a wedding guest (that’s a big no-no!). But seriously: cocktail party? Wear your LWD with bright pumps and a lightweight embellished jacket. Baseball game? Toss on a zip-up hoodie and Chuck Taylors. Brunch? Keep it simple with an unbuttoned chambray shirt and leather sandals or flats.

The LWD I’m wearing here is super stretchy and textured – and the skater style (i.e.: fit and flare) is almost universally flattering. A tropical floral print clutch (with pops of neon) and pink sandals add a girly touch, while the vintage-feeling leather jacket helps offset some of that sweetness. If you’re searching for the perfect LWD this summer, I rounded up a bunch of options (for any budget) in the “shop the post” section below. Check it out!

Dress: Aqua by Bloomingdales striped texture dress (other color here) // Jacket: Barneys leather biker jacket (via ASOS) // Bag: Ted Baker hibiscus print clutch // Shoes: Zara heeled strappy sandals // Jewelry: EF Collection pavé zigzag ring, KC Designs XO rings

Happy Friday to youuu! Remember when I said I was romper-obsessed? Wasn’t kidding. I saw this Alice & Olivia romper a few weeks ago at T.J.Maxx and immediately fell for that floral print, in my color of the moment: buttercream yellow. This is one of my favorite spring outfit posts, even though I’m slightly embarrassed by the super matchy-matchy coordinating. I promise it just happened that way. I’d been obsessing over/instagramming the yellow gel polish, and the neon coral clutch just looked too cute with the floral pattern.

Since the romper makes a statement on its own, it didn’t take much to glam it up – just a pair gold pumps, a necklace that I repurposed and wrapped twice around my ankle (anklets are making a comeback!), plus some rose gold jewelry here and there. I like the idea of this outfit for a spring/summer cocktail party, especially because it features three of my favorites: bold prints, neon and gold (a holy style trinity). Now, go enjoy your weekend!

Outfit details:

Romper: Alice & Olivia Naleigh floral playsuit // Blazer: Urban Outfitters (old, similar here and here) // Bag: Lauren Merkin Mini Marlow in neon coral (other color here) // Shoes: Jimmy Choo Anouk metallic pumps // Sunglasses: Ray-Ban aviators with green flash lenses // Jewelry: necklace worn as anklet, Jules Smith rose gold Americana cuff, EF Collection pavé zigzag ring, Madewell colorband ring

When my boyfriend saw me in this dress, he said it looked like I was wearing an X-Men costume. I’m pretty sure that was a compliment.

I mean, this dress definitely has a cool and sporty vibe – with a high neckline and contrasting black side panels, it’s reminiscent of a wetsuit (albeit made from silky crepe), or something you’d see on a female pro tennis player. Still, it’s slightly flirty and (in my opinion) ultra flattering because the panels help define your waist and streamline the silhouette. The whole athletic-wear trend has been big this spring, and it’s a pretty fun one to play around with (think: dressed-up track pants paired with pumps, pencil skirts made from scuba neoprene, mesh inserts on peplum tops, etc.).  I kept it simple, adding a little texture with metallic snake effect pumps and a similarly embossed clutch. Next time I’ll wear this dress with sneakers, so my inner-Sporty Spice can really shine.
