Little White Dress with Utility Jacket | Shades of Sarah

Is there a more quintessential summer piece than a little white dress? It’s the perfect blank canvas for sunny days and accessories to match, but the day I wore this it actually wasn’t that summery outside! Instead, I used the weather as a good excuse to take my new jacket out for a spin. (I’ll save the more colorful interpretation for a warmer day.)

When shopping for a LWD, it’s all in the details. The jacket covers some of it up, but I love the pintucking on the bodice, and the tiny eyelet on the bottom. Also, it’s super comfy (thanks, elastic waist!) which really goes with that carefree vibe that summer dressing is all about.

To keep up the carefree vibe, I added some turquoise earrings (natural stone jewelry is trending this summer). I love them paired with the forest green of the jacket and the warm brown of my sandals (which admittedly have seen better days, but are broken in perfectly).

Can’t get enough of little white dresses? Visit Chelsea over at Organized Mess and see how she styled her lace number — how chic and cheerful does she look?

Any other fun ways you style your white sundresses?
