Washed out

Have I mentioned white is my favorite color? Aside from being seasonless and looking good on, and with everything, white makes me feel pretty, and even a little bold, as so many people seem to 'fear' wearing it.

The bright white skirt paired with the washed out chambray shirt was the perfect look for a stroll around downtown New Canaan on a day so warm it could have been mistaken for summer. Wish I could have done a bit more shopping, but the store fronts of downtown New Canaan can only be my reality in outlet form, with a big sale going on.

  2. I have a similar faded chambray shirt. I don't have a white skirt, but I am now going to pair it with my white shorts. This is such a fresh look.

  9. I love white, but I don't have enough of it in my closet. I love this skirt so much! It seems like it would be such a great, versatile piece. Gorgeous, Lydia!

  10. It's funny - I never think of white as a bold shade but you make a good point; so many people are afraid of wearing it, especially in the presence of ketchup and red wine, that there is something bold about daring to! White and chambray as a perfect match as far as I'm concerned. And one I don't wear often enough. Time to take some inspiration from this look! If only I could take my photos in New Canaan... what gorgeous store fronts.

  16. Kudos to you for loving white clothing, and for wearing this skirt so well. I think it looks amazing, but I probably would have gotten it in a different color. I am one of those people who is afraid of white--stains are attracted to white! :)

  21. Being super fair, people use to always tell me I shouldn't wear white or blush, but I wear it all the time and I actually think it looks good! Screw them! :) You look so amazing! Loving that skirt!!
