White Shirtdress

I'm a big advocate of simple summer dressing. Throw on a dress and be done with it. Even if that isn't entirely true because there is still the important matter of choosing shoes and accessories and more often than not, those are belabored decisions.

However in this instance I decided on the gold belt and everything else just fell into place.

  1. This look! These photos! Everything is perfect - you look like you're enjoying a sunny holiday on the Greek Islands (and are impeccably dressed for it, I might add.) I really struggle with shirt dresses because they have so little hanger appeal, I almost never pick one up to try it on, even though a good shirt dress has been at the top of my shopping wishlist for years. Maybe one day I'll find the one... But in the meantime, I'm just going to wish I could borrow yours :)

  2. Lovely photos! That gold belt is the perfect addition. So fun to meet you last weekend! I wish we'd had time to really talk more.

  5. Aw yes. I always feel like I fail at summer dressing because I find it so hard to be simple sometimes! This is a great example though of how to be simple and chic. I love the little gold details!

  6. I love that belt, such a nice simple look! And I agree, simple is best in Summer, I should get some last few wears out of my dresses, ha ha

  7. How cute is this! That belt and the necklace add the perfect touch. And I happen to have the same bracelet, love the knot in it. -R

  8. Outfits where everything falls together are my favorite. Usually they're the most effortless but the sharpest looking outfits. I'm a fan of dresses in the summer too. There's just no time for layers in the summer. Just too much.

  9. Wow! These photos are beautiful! The whole look is effortless!

  10. You look amazing in this dress in this light and photos. Just picture perfect! The gold details was perfect choice. I'm all about simple dressing, what ever it means to all of us. Litle touches with accessories is the key.


  11. I LOVE that gold belt and this golden lighting. This is a beautiful set of photos so I've gotta inform you of that. You're so golden, Lydia!

    Yeah, summer is rather difficult to layer in and such, so you just have to get creative with accessories like belts, jewelry, purses, and shoes to dress up the clothes!

  12. This just says SUMMER like nothing else. The pretty white dress, the gold belt, the beautiful light... it's summer perfection!

  13. Perfect summer dress!!!!

    I know, i too tend to think that throwing on a dress will be simpler but then I stop to accessorise and sometimes that takes a while.
