color crush: bright white.

happy monday! obviously i have the wedding on my mind :) there's also something so fresh and clean (so fresh and so clean clean) about white.. it screams summer and i could use a little more sun after the warm weather tease we had in chicago yesterday. 

do you wear white on a regular basis or do you save it for the summertime?

  11. Love white but I have a hard time pulling it out before Easter. That was always drilled into my head growing up. Then I moved to New Orleans and Houston were it is so freaking hot that people wear it year round!

  13. All the white just means that summer is on it's way! :D
    White t-shirts and 'winter white' for fall and winter, but for spring and summer, white sundresses all the way!

  28. I love white outfits on others, but not on me because I'm so clumsy and afraid I will spill something on myself. Lol.

  31. I'm a huge fan of white tops and dresses! Been looking around for a pretty and simple white dress. Gotta love how white is simple and yet, screams out loud about the outfit.

    It's hot and humid all year round, so white is a basic color for almost any day in Malaysia! :) x

  35. Ahhh white. So close, yet so far a way. I'd love to wear a pretty white dress like these! Remember that scene in Sex in the city 2 where Charlotte gets paint hand prints on her pretty white vintage skirt? That'd be me for sure. lol

  41. I have a white jacket that I love wearing in the spring, but otherwise I think I'm too messy for white!

    ReplyDelete
  42. SO fresh and SO clean clean! hahaha i've always preffered white to black but can't say I wear it year round. Even in California, it seems a bit off to wear it mid winter. I always love it though once spring starts creeping in.

  52. white is definitely one of my favorite colors to wear, it does look fresh and clean and once i got out of elementary school a whole lot easier to wear (i was very fond of kick ball and the occasional mud pie :).
