Bloggers Do It Better: White Out

The first Bloggers Do It Better Challenge was so much fun, I couldn’t wait to do it again!  This time the assignment was White Out– using whites, creams, or a combination of the two in your outfit.

cardigan- Ross, cami and skirt- forever 21, wedges- target

I only had one creme skirt, which solved the problem of what to wear on bottom.  Not going to lie, the skirt is pretty tight and short, so I want something flowier on top to balance that out.  I wore this open white cardigan which I shrunk in the wash!  It used to be much longer and the sleeves were full-length, but it actually doesn’t hit me in a bad spot, even in its shrunken size.  Then I zipped up these Target wedges, which I love love love!

This was a pretty good weekend =)  On Saturday, I went shopping and I finally bought my graduation dress.  I’m going for an overall summery look, but still dressy of course, and I’m probably going to wear it with these Target wedges since I know we have to walk all over grass and such and I wouldn’t want my heels to sink in.  I can’t wait to wear my dress on graduation!  Also, in preparation for my trip to Myrtle Beach in a little over a week, I bought a floppy black straw hat, a bathing suit, denim shorts, and two pairs of sandals.  I think I’m pretty beach ready!  I know you guys have never seen me in a hat, but it is something I’ve been meaning to try, so don’t worry, there will definitely be pictures!

Tell me: Would you wear an all white (or off-white) outfit?

    Haha! I'm always very paranoid when I wear white because this once time in high school one of my friends was wearing a white skirt, and then she sat down on a piece of chocolate, and you can imagine the rest…Anyways, since then I've always been super careful when wearing white! Thank you =)

    Yes, I love wearing all white in summer. There's something incredibly pristine and alluring to all white. I think you got the shapes – tight skirt, flowy top – spot-on.

    I have those Target wedges! Aren't they the greatest? And they totally anchor this white/ivory look – great choice. I personally never wear white (I own two cream colored dresses and one cream colored top and I think they get worn about once a year max) because I just prefer dark colors.

    Never! Mainly because I am a clumsy oaf and would look a complete state within twenty minutes… I do like seeing the look on people such as yourself who can carry it off, though :)

    Great styling for the white out trend. I wanted to participate in this weeks bloggers do it better but I just couldn't come up with anything. The only white item I have in my wardrobe is a cardigan with roses on it so I didn't have much to work with.

    I love that skirt on you. Even if it feels tight, it looks great, and you have the legs to pull it off. Super job on the White Out challenge!

    Is it weird to say that I love the shoes the best??? YES I DO! Perfect for graduation too!

    Would love it, if you would stop by and see how a 45+ year old handles “White Out”—you might get a good chuckle anyway! See you there!
