Savoring Summer in All White

Am I the only one who can hardly believe it is already August, let alone that it is already August eleventh? At this point in my life it should no longer surprise me how fast summer flies by, but every year come August I find myself wondering how we got here and wishing summer would slow down. One more month of beautiful summer weather, dining al fresco, and beach days is all I'm asking for and then I will gladly welcome fall with open arms.

Since that is sadly out of my control, I am trying to soak it all in before September rolls around. That means lobster rolls every chance I get, lazy afternoons spent by the pool, and of course all white outfits. If you know me, you know I can't resist a good all white outfit! I've featured a few on the Faith & Fancy (here and here) and figured I would share one more before Labor Day rolls around. I've been known to break the 'no white after Labor Day rule' but if I'm being honest wearing white just doesn't feel the same when there is a chill in the air.

It's no surprise that I've made quite the collection of airy, crisp white pieces over the years, and an amazing new top was just added to that arsenal. And when I say amazing I mean, bell sleeves and a peplum hem kind of amazing... yes, please! Not only is it a total Gretchen top, but it is the perfect transitional top when fall does decided to roll around. Until then however, I plan on continuing to wear my all white ensambles and you should too!

p.s. This straw clutch has quickly become a summertime closet staple. I have quite literally been reaching for it all summer long. Go get it now before we are trading in our straw for leather and suede!
