Turning Heads Linkup- White Outfit #2

Hello Friends!

Isn’t it hard to believe it is now August? I have to say it has been a hot summer here in Charlotte, but we did have a mild Spring that led into the next Season. One thing I do enjoy is the ability to sit outside throughout the year until about December! I enjoy the sunshine and seeing it more often than not, affects my mood in a positive way. One look I love seeing in the summer, which seems to be popular, year after year is the all white look. I shared a look yesterday on the blog, and today wanted to wear white with a bit of a classic look. Yes, my hair remains up in August. and I .got rid of those pesky greys! My stylist said she never saw those white hairs on my head until now….

One way to wear white as separates is to wear a top with texture. Try lace, embroidery, cut-out styles, and  you can also add texture with your handbag.  Here I have styled this white lace shell with detail on the collar with white flat front cropped pants from Ann Taylor.  The detailing and texture gives more visual interest to the look. I paired it with my white sling back kitten heels for a dressier look.

Yesterday I wore my white denim shorts and all white outfit, while accenting with neutrals.  If you missed this look, click HERE. I applied the same process to this outfit where I am wearing a one shoulder ruffled lace top in off white, combining shades of white for a fresh summer look. I went with almost all white with only the black strap of my slingbacks.

    I’m loving the crisp all white look. Your top is perfect as the lace adds texture and interest to the look. Your shoes are very pretty too. – Amy

    Jess, so love that top. The little collar is adorable. That’s what I like about your outfits. Always such interesting little details. I have never tried head to toe white. Seems like whenever I wear anything light colored any liquid within 10 feet of me will figure out a way to end up on me! So I’m afraid all white on me would end up looking too messy after a very short time. But it sure looks chic on you 🙂

    See–I told you I was a sucker for white…because I included my post where I’m wearing my white dress. Of course I didn’t keep it monochromatic like you did—but it’s still a white piece—that counts, right?
    You have the best lace items, Jess!! That blouse is gorgeous!!

    You look fabulous in all white, Jess! And I love your hair up too – beautiful. I actually just bought a pair of white linen trousers in the sale, I can’t wait to wear them. I love the idea of a white top but I’ll have to go find the perfect one lol!

      Thanks Suzy! The weather has been usually cooler this week, so I took a blog session with my hair down. I usually wear it up in the summer. I have considered and maybe next year, a pair of white linen pants, they look so comfy and cool for summer!
