THT-Flowy Embroidered White Dress for Summer

Time to wear white this summer in my flowy, embroidered Zara white dress.

Zara White Dress

I have a few white dresses for summer. So, when I saw this Zara dress on Poshmark ( my favorite thrifting site),  I was able to snag it for $35 🙂 I do like floaty, flowy dresses in the Summer, especially since we have had a very hot summer thus far. It seems like every other day there is a heat advisory, as we reach 100 degrees! One of those days when you walk outside and you feel like you can literally cut through the air.

The embroidery makes this  dress special as does the puffier balloon sleeves. Because it is cotton, it is cooler and my second choice of fabric for the Summer months.

Styling wise , I kept it neutral, with my Sarah Flint sandals and ever present rattan bag. I love simple gold jewelry in the summer too. You could easily style this dress a bit more casually with summer flats and there are so many pretty ones to choose from if  you wanted to add some pop of color.  I did add color to one of my white dresses in yesterday’s POST.

You could also style this dress open and worn with column dressing. Any shirtdress, or dress that buttons all the way down can be turned into a jacket or kimono.

Since I don’t tend to layers this time of year, I styled the dress as is. White dresses to me are quintessential Summer! Since this dress isn’t available,  here is another option for you ( and its on sale!)

I will share with you some of my white dress picks to shop below. And if you don’t follow me on LTKI ( Like to KNow it) you can now.

Life Lately

My family is here. My sister lives in South Charlotte, and I in North Charlotte. I mentioned my brother and sis in law are close by. I have another brother with 2 kids who came from Hoboken to visit this summer.  We had a great Father’s Day, ( as I said a silent prayer) to my Dad . I do miss him. We enjoyed a bountiful Brunch at a local country club, On the Nines, and it was delicious. No one ate anything after that! I had a refreshing strawberry rhubarb Mimosa, and my hubby gets his favorite Bloody Mary.  Later yesterday evening, we enjoyed a Charlotte Knights baseball game ( they won!) and my niece and nephew got to run the bases after the game. It was alot of fun! We have alot planned this week and are renting 2 pontoon boats tomorrow.

    Every woman needs a white summertime dress! They have a clean crisp appeal and yet a romantic feeling too.

    White dresses are a big highlight of summer ! Looks beautiful. We had a brief spell of record temperatures, but summer so far has been a bit disappointing xx

    Whenever I hear someone talking about needing a white dress, I get flash backs to that scene in Under the Tuscan Sun 🙂 Your dress looks wonderful and I love the shoulder bag you paired with it too!

    Oh my gosh…so when you mentioned the other white dress from yesterday’s post, I ‘squirreled’ over there and didn’t finish this post first. Now I see all of the great white dress choices you have provided. OH MY GRAVY. I am in trouble. Will check them all out. I really, really don’t need any more dresses but I love your white ones. This one is so delicate. The details are beautiful. And it looks so cool for summer.

    Hope you have had the very best time on the pontoon boats and with all the fam. You mentioned brunch at the country club. My parents belonged to a country club long, long ago and we would go out for Sunday brunch. Always sooooo good. And my mama loved that we would be so full we wouldn’t need another bite of anything the rest of the day. Your strawberry rhubarb drink sounds scrumptious.

      Thank you Leslie! I always love a pretty white dress- especially in the summer. I have linen and cotton dresses at the ready as its pretty hot. I appreciate you commenting! We don’t belong to the Country Club, but it is open to the public for brunch/meals. You are so right! No one was hungry later in the day!

    Such a pretty dress! I love a white dress although I don’t wear them often-memories from when the kids were little maybe lol. Poshmark is a great place to sell and pick up a few goodies!

    What a great dress! I love that it buttons all the way down to give you different styling options. The eyelet looks like the same as my Zara jumpsuit that I scored at the thrift shop recently. Such a pretty summer look, my friend!

    The perfect summer dress: no layers needed and not too tight. Pretty eyelet. Sounds like a lovely Father’s day weekend. Ours was a good one too, very simple.

    What a cute little white dress! I wish I could pull off this much white, I’m too clumsy and with myself and the dog and the kids white never stays white long! it is so cute for summer though!

    Thanks for the link up! Hope your week is off to a good start and you are enjoying boating!

    Wow, what a great find Jess! I am not really sure what size I wear in Zara yet so I’m a little hesitant to buy from Poshmark. But this dress, is incredible on you! I love the style, the embroidery and of course the fact that it’s white. Perfect for summer and the SF sandals really elevate the look along with the rattan bag. Love it all!
    Your Father’s Day sounds so nice, I’m sure your dad would be happy to know y’all were together. I love pontoon boats – your weeks sounds like it will be lots of fun!
    xo,
