1. Casual dinner with friends: Going for a boho-casual vibe, I pair my lace Lulu's LWD with a chunky necklace, leather jacket and gladiator sandals. Meanwhile, Langdon decides to go preppy, donning an ivory Lilly Pulitzer shift, which she pairs with a simple silver cuff, cork Jack Rogers sandals, and silver hoop earrings.
2. Same dresses, bonfire on the beach: I give my Lulu's dress a beachy update by accessorizing with simple dangly earrings, and a metallic leather cuff (I adore Satchel of Savannah's beautiful leather accessories). Langdon and I both suggest loose hair and bare feet... it is the beach after all!) Lang gives her classic Lilly a surfer-esque update, adding vintage neon bangles to add a pop of color. Her coral drop earrings add to the oceanic vibe.
3. 4th of July Barbecue: Here in the South, family barbecue is undisputedly a tradition on Independence Day. For our lakeside 'cue, (we go to the mountains of North Carolina) I plan on wearing a Red Dress Boutique (check out their website... adorable) "Livin' on the Edge" LWD with a semi-open back, which I will pair with my favorite Steve Madden woven wedges, a bold red necklace, and navy nails. Back at the beach, Langdon is looking forward to wearing a boho crochet body con-shift from Nordstrom with red BCBGeneration wedges and nautical navy bracelets. Hurray for the USA!
4. And now, other places to wear the LWD:
Church*, casual parties, semi-formal parties*, dinner dates, school, walking around town, shopping, over a bathing suit*, with friends, the country club, the city, graduation party/graduation*, your cousins bat mitzvah, traveling, hula-hooping, window-shopping, water-skiing (or not).... pretty much anywhere except a wedding! or a funeral, come to think of it!
Now, go purchase a little white dress (or three), and tell us if we're wrong about it.
* Depending on the dress...
