Well, now that Memorial Day is official come and gone we can all now breath a sigh of relief and wear white without worrying about some age-old mantra about no white before that day. Plus as the summer heats up, white becomes a much more viable outfit option. I, personally, am on the hunt for a great pair of white pants. But until that time I will be opting for the two white(ish) dresses I own and bringing in more lighter-colored options into my wardrobe.
This Converse dress from Target is white with a subtle gray-colored paisley pattern. I’m never quiet sure how to wear the dress so it tends to sit in the back of my closet waiting for the moment when I am up for experimenting with it again. This time I went with the gray cami underneath and a red sweater over – sticking with the classic color combination of white and red. For a little more zing I added the yellow accents and the leopard print purse. It’s a lot of pattern and breaks the three-color rule I’ve seen mentioned by some stylists, but I liked the overall look and feel of this outfit.
