White Eyelet Look with Neutral Accents for Summer

Morning Friends,

Well, we have had some nice low humidity days here In Charlotte, and have enjoyed getting out and about. You have seen my love for dresses in the summer, and how much I love colorful outfits  Today and tomorrow,however, I’m keeping it neutral. I wanted to wear a few all white looks, with some neutral accessories, before the summer’s end.

 My outfit

I have a few white jackets in my wardrobe, several of them from Poshmark. When i saw Nora, from Jacket Society, wearing this eyelet jacket with trim, I thought it would be a great jacket for my spring and summer wardrobe. I love that it is fitted, has the eyelet texture, and the trim at the lapel. Its one snazzy white jacket and I got it on sale. I will be styling it other ways this summer as well.

You remember the eyelet Chicos girlfriend jeans? Well, I thought they would be the perfect mix with the jacket and they are so soft and comfy! I am wearing the jacket in a Small and the jeans in Chicos’ 00. I went to look to see if there were any other of these jeans on their big sale, but alas, my size was gone! I do like that their sizing is consistant and i know what i wear in tops and bottoms.

I am on the hunt for a pretty white camil, so for this look I am just wearing a soft cotton white tee. The cami would dress it up more and yes I had to wear my floral sandals again. The bit of neutral tan at the straps and my addition of my congac Rebecca Minkoff satchel added to the neutral look and broke up the white a bit.

Summer plans

How was your weekend? My hubby and i went to an event that showcases Ben Winkler, the world known photographer or Faces of Silver, at Charlotte Seen. We attended a fashion show, ( a precursor to Charlotte’s Fashion Week) had drinks and nibbles, music and enjoyed the day.  . I will give you more details, as I hope to write about it here . j

I feel like I am in desperate need of a vacation! The last two years we have been to Savannah and the Outer Banks which i loved, this year we are trying to plan a European trip. It all depends on VRBO and what is available. We will spend a day on the Lake, boating and having a picnic sometime soon as well.

Are you a fan of eyelet and all white looks for summer?

    Jess, you truly have a way with accessorizing. Love the feminine white eyelet, so lovely on you, doll. Those sandals tie it all together with a big summer bow. Bravo.
    Xo, Jonet

    I know what you mean about vacation. I’d love to get away to a mountain town for a short weekend, but with our Alaska cruise coming up, it won’t happen!!

      How fun Jodie! My brother and sis in law went on an Alaskan Cruise and it was a great memory for them, they loved it. Enjoy! We are planning a trip in October, it has been a bit since we got away, and it is so needed! Thank you, so glad you like this look. I couldn’t pass up the beautiful jacket and love the chicos jeans! xx

    So chic Jess! That jacket looks like it was made for those pants – I’d never have guessed they were purchased separately! I love adding tan or brown to an all white outfit. That RM satchel is stunning as well!
    Your weekend sounds terrific! I have never been to any fashion week event (not sure if we even have one) but I’d bet it would be fun. I hope your trip works out, e getaway is great idea!
