White On White

White on white.  That's a ballsy look. I always thought you had to be SUPER skinny to pull it off. And I am not saying I'm a fatty...but I'm not a stick either! I'm pear-shaped and have always kind of owned dealt with the badonka-donk. But ANYONE, even donkey booties, can wear white; I promise! There are a few key factors that need to be kept in mind to do so though... 

First, you need to mix patterns/fabrics.  Don't wear linen pants and a linen shirt, or white jeans with a white denim jacket.  ***I need to point something out here! The first real rule, which hopefully you would already assume, is that your whites have to match. This goes without saying right!? Okay good.  Now, for my white on white outfit, I wore my new favorite white jeans (from DL1961...link & discount code below) and matched them with a breathable cotton, embroidered tunic. 

Second, it helps if you're tan.  It sounds weird, but this is probably why white is better on people in the summer...you're naturally more tan. White clothing of any kind always pops more against tanned skin...plus, if you have a beautiful, natural glow you don't have to wear as much make-up. (Here is my favorite sunless tanner)

Lastly, you need to add in neutral accessories. In all honesty, this is why I felt most comfortable wearing this white on white outfit, and wanted to write this post. I got these new Tieks flats & Vera Bradley clutch to match, and was completely inspired. Not only do these accessories make the outfit in my opinion, but the pale pink color breaks up the all white while still maintaining the monochromatic style I was going for. These Tieks are the most comfortable flats I have ever worn! Women...need some shoes that are comfy & functional all the while still making you feel relevant & chic?  These are the shoes for you.  And this clutch; it's everything! Let's talk more...

As you guys might have noticed I have recently fallen back in love with Vera Bradley.  I was your typical, Vera Bradley toting sorority girl.  I used their luggage (still do), their make-up bags (still do), the fabric tote bags to carry my books, their backpacks, etc... At one point in time I had over 7 pieces of Vera Bradley in some form or another.  Like most, I associated Vera with high school & college and never really looked back after graduation.  However, Vera now does awesome! Seriously! They have completely "re-branded" if you will.  They have some of the most gorgeous faux & authentic leather handbags, trendy sunglasses, lush beach towels, colorful accessories, etc...  I'm a re-believer and am super happy to be supporting this amazing brand again.  Don't believe me!? Just watch!
