Summer Date Night Whites

Soprano tie-neck dress xs (also in navy or pink), BP wedge sandals 5.5 (runs narrow) 

I love my fitted pieces, but in the midst of summer nothing beats something that's flowy and lets a little breeze through. This swing dress looks almost indecently short on the online model, which usually means a good length on petite ladies. When online shopping, don't let yourself get turned off by poor reviews without reading through them - a lot of times they are due to fit running small or short, which might actually be positive news for other shoppers!

This shift dress is fully lined in a pullover style, and swings playfully with each step. You can leave the chiffon ties hanging long or looped into a small bow. Please note the armholes are on the bigger side so I plan on taking them in a bit. I paired it here with all white and neutrals except for a hint of color in my bright blue tassel earrings.

These A.J. Morgan sunglasses are another find from Nordstrom - I looked everywhere for white, retro-style shades for summer and was skeptical since these were priced so low. I've never heard of the brand before, but the fit of these is actually very good on my narrow face and flat nose bridge. You get what you pay for as these are plastic-y, but I can't complain as I just saw they are now marked down to a super steal at $14 from the original $25. I can't speak to any other style by this brand, but the fit of this particular one makes it a keeper for me as "fun" glasses, and they also come in black and tortoise.

I've worn these flattering wedges so much now over the years! I've mentioned it before, but will warn again that the straps run narrow across the front (I went half size up in these). They are now 40% off and recently got re-stocked in most sizes from 6 - 11.

  1. That dress looks beautiful on you! I always get worried about white dresses and wearing a slip but when it's fully lined, that's even better!

  4. Did you find this dress ran short? I'm 5'2" and wasn't sure of the length.

  18. I love this dress! It has the subtle chic of a bow tie blouse, but in the flowy and summery form of a dress!

  22. Oh my, you're right about the online model with this dress. It looks like a babydoll nightie. But once again, it looks better on you than the model. I love it. Now I want one!!!

  23. Absolutely lovely, and I love the sunset images :) Those tassle earrings really pop out against the all-white look, which is awesome.

  29. hi jean, great outfit. how are you liking the celine nano btw? i was at the celine store yesterday eyeballing it but haven't been ready to take the plunge. any pros/cons you can comment on and thoughts on durability? did you get the strap shortened also? i'm about 5'3" and it seemed a little long on me. i like the cream color you have but am a little concerned about color transfer from clothing so have been thinking the beige color instead. hope to see a post on it soon!
