30 May Styling- An All-White Look for Summer with Neutral Accents
Happy Memorial Day friends,
Yes, I am wearing white on Memorial Day, and I wear it year-round.
I like to fluctuate between color and neutrals, and today I have styled an all white look with neutral accessories.
All White ( Year round)
I do find all white looks to always look fresh, summery and very chic and the heat and Memorial Day weekend signify the official start of Summer! We had a great time at my brother and sister in law’s house this weekend.. Nothing like breaking in the grill, and laying out by the pool. Hubby and I had fun on this enormous Fun Boy floaty!
This floaty is 9 feet long and 4.5 feet wide, so it took up a considerable part of the pool! We tried to get our shih tzus in it, in lifejackets, but they would have no part of the water!
We had a delicious cookout and I brought my “famous” strawberry and walnut salad ( with goat cheese). HERE is the recipe if you want to make it! I originally got the recipe from my hubby’s sister, but it is also found here. ** credit- Pinch and Swirl.

Now, back to the outfit.
Summer weather in the South calls for cool fabrics, so many of my modal or polyester dresses are out. In the summer, I look for breathable fabrics when the temps climb to 80s and 90s. I bought my white linen blouson blouse on Mango last year, as well as the white NYDJ cotton-elastane denim skirt I am wearing. I get alot of wear from the white bottom pieces I have in my closet. I add a linen piece or two each year to my summer wardrobe, as it is hot here !
I find that if you are worried about looking washed out in all -white, the balance comes with adding the warmer accessories. Since I have the tan rattan bag, the tan rattan earrings and gold -flecked espadrilles, it gives a warmer look overall.
If you didn’t want to go with espadrilles, you could certainly wear a pair of strappy nude heels or light brown/tan slides. The idea is to keep the look minimal and yourself cool!
Now, just stay away from the red wine, and you’re good to go! 🙂
How are you spending your Memorial Day? Do you wear all white looks on this day, or do you dare not?
Have a great day!
