With Labor Day quickly approaching, we’ve somehow reached the last glimpses of summer. The weather here in Washington has already transitioned from stifling humidity to a cool low 70’s, and I’ve been drinking my morning coffee hot for over a week now.
I can’t give up on summer quite yet though, and I plan on wearing all the white dresses and all the white shorts and all the white pants right on into fall. Whether dressed up or down, a little white dress is always a refreshing and pretty look. I found this white dress a couple years ago at Anthropologie, and true to form, they still have a collection of feminine white dresses to choose from. I’ve linked some of my favorites below.
Side note that this dress made me think of: did anyone read the book Girls in White Dresses years ago? The author came out with a book about life in DC this past year and, for any of you DC readers, it’s a frighteningly and hilariously accurate glimpse into what life in this city is often like…even more so because she lived just a block or so from my old apartment while writing the book. It’s called The Hopefuls and it’s worth picking up.
So, if you do end up with a little white dress at the end of summer and don’t want to wait until next summer to wear it, what should you do? Grab a jean jacket or a leather moto jacket and keep on wearing that dress until the temperatures drop.
Thank you to Zero George, who you already read about in my Charleston: The Food and The Drink post, for hosting us for cocktails during our stay in Charleston, South Carolina — their perfectly elegant, Southern veranda served as the gorgeous backdrop for these photos.
