Dress: Daydream Dress c/o Stella Carakasi (L) | Jacket: J. Crew Factory (XL) | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Bracelet: Had forever (similar) | Shoes: Vince Camuto (similar)
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!
You look Fabulous and that dress is a must have. Enjoy!
Love this look! Living in Cali, white works all year long.

My mom was so frigging intense about this rule and last night she was wearing white pants and I was like WHITE BEFORE MEMORIAL DAY POLICE!!!

I just love this. It is such a fun look! Full disclosure, I work for Stella Carakasi. One of the things I love in your outfit is the play on texture. The denim gives this dress the perfect element of proportion for your figure Alison. The outfit just sings to me!!

I’m not opposed to white and airy before Memorial Day, but the weather needs to be warm enough.
You look adorable! I love those sandals, they’re perfect!

I’m one of those who rebels against those old, silly rules—-so bring on the white!!
I’m also a huge fan of the assymetrical hemlines, so this dress is fabulous in my eyes (and on your body, ha ha)
