Wearing White On A Rainy Day

White outfit

I usually stay far away from white on rainy days, but it’s the middle of the summer, and I wanted to wear white anyway! I’m such a rebel -HA! So once again, I let the requirements lead the way! I wanted to wear closed toe shoes in case it started raining again. I also didn’t want to slip in heels, so my suede booties seemed perfect! I immediately thought about putting a pretty, feminine, strappy tank with this outfit (how cute would that be), but I knew I’d get cold in the restaurant, so I opted for this cute white top. I’m loving it, btw. The ruffle on the sleeve makes it feel feminine. I’ve also worn this top with jean shorts, gold sandals and statement earrings. OH MY GOODNESS, I’m just seeing that they make it in black and white gingham, too! So stinkin’ cute!

Now I just needed to bring my all white outfit together. This is me taking a picture to send to my sister of the crazy cute wooden GUNNER and LUX necklace she gave me for my birthday. The necklace matched my booties perfectly and so did my suede clutch. Yes, I love suede- even in the summer! Especially when it’s paired with white! See, I can wear white in the rain! I just had to let go of my ban on white when it rains and let my booties lead the way!

This look was inspired by a text exchange with my friend, Nicole (@gobendie). She is also a stylist, and I wanted to see if she had any ideas about how I could spice up my flowy tops this summer. She suggested I tuck them in completely, instead of my usual sloppy tuck. It’s funny how a fresh perspective can make such a difference! I wish we all still lived in dorms and helped each other pick out our outfits. I guess that’s what selfies and text messages are for! Anyway, I’m still using my sloppy tuck, but I’m loving the all the way around tuck as a new (not really new at all) option! I’m always in search of fresh perspectives! Thanks, Nicole!
