Stella Carakasi sent me this dress and I envisioned it in the hot summer months with my silver Birkenstocks and these aviators but when it arrived last week I decided to style it in a way to make it work now. Many still stick to the dated rule of no white before Memorial Day, and are even more against white linen before the summer holiday. Well this isn't linen, it's hemp! And it's machine washable! When paired with a denim jacket and more substantial of sandals, this white dress looks right at home in April. It's fully lined in cotton voile so it's truly opaque yet breezy. And like linen, hemp looks good when it's all rumpled and wrinkled. Just putting this on has me dreaming of summer days!

A busy day.
