Denim, White and Pink

I completely forgot about these photos till I was going through my outfit of the day folder and stumbled upon them! I adore this dress and have worn it so many times since I got it at the beginning of May. It's the perfect white, summer dress. It can be dressed up for a garden party or event or dressed down for a casual lunch or shopping! 

I threw on my trusty denim jacket for a more casual feel but still stayed "dressy" with these adorable nude wedges from Forever21. Denim jackets are my go-to for casual-fying a dress. They're inexpensive and just put the finishing touch on the outfit. I also love them because they are the perfect layer for when it's toasty during the day but cool in the evenings. If you don't own one you should! They're so practical and go with eeeeverything!

I love the cut and style of this dress. It's more of a "fit and flare" style with a shirt dress top with the slight collar and half buttons. It's a wide tank style and has the prettiest eyelet fabric! I'm obsessed to say the least. It's just the perfect summer dress! 

This one is a girl's size XL from Target BUT I did find a pretty similar one at GAP that's under $100 but knowing it's GAP will probably go on sale to be under $50. I also found an adorable one also at Target that has a bow back for under $50.

I paired my hot pink Kendra Scott necklace with it because #pink and love the way it adds a nice pop of color to the otherwise all neutral look. This necklace I wear alllllll the time. It's simple but a nice statement piece. And it matches basically everything I own. Haha!

How cute is this Kate Spade clutch/pouch?! I picked it up awhile back when they were having a surprise sale and it's so handy! I typically use it when I'm traveling to store either my electronics or to have all my necessities handy like chapstick, gum, Advil, etc. But I've been using it lately as a clutch when I'm going to dinner and I don't want to lug around a big ol heavy purse. It's the perfect size, holds a lot of stuff and is super cute! A winner in my book!

Also I'm obsessed with these wedges. They're from Forever21 but I got them off of Poshmark and they are the perfect summer nude wedge. They're tall (just like I like them) but not uncomfortable or make you feel unsteady. Plus they make your legs look really long and tan, always a good thing. I linked a super similar Steve Madden and another brown pair from Forever21

I think white, eyelet dresses are perfect for summer because they're so versatile. You can wear them to picnics, casual lunches, outdoor events, shopping, concerts and basically everything except a wedding. And they're light and airy (I hate dresses that are tight especially for summer because then you have sweat in the unmentionable places Haha!) and will let you breathe during the hot months.

This dress will definitely get worn a ton this summer because it's such a staple piece to have! I can't wait to style it more so make sure you're following me on Instagram (@samatha_goble) to see more ways I style it!
