It’s officially summer *yay!* and that means long beach days, warm nights under the stars, and a wardrobe stocked full of dreamy dresses! Particularly white, flowy dresses – with an abundance of lace detailing. The more romantic and ethereal, the better!

I’ve been seeing midi-length dresses everywhere, which makes me so happy! The style evokes one of my favorite time periods, and to me, it oozes grace and femininity. On this dress: the drop waist, deep lace neckline, and ruffled hem create a subtle bohemian elegance – perfect for the beach. I’m definitely having an island girl meets Downton Abbey inspired moment!

Along with a timeless white midi dress – a classic white wrap dress, a flowy white maxi dress with slits, and a white ruffled off-the-shoulder mini dress will have you perfectly styled for every occasion on your next beach getaway.

No matter the style you decide to invest in though, the white dress is a classic that will last you for summers to come.

I’ve been pairing my white dresses with this season’s it bag: the Bamboo Ark Bag. (it’s the perfect summer clutch!) The strong lines and the beautiful texture of the raw bamboo add visual structure to the flowy fabric (and it’s all so pretty when tied with a colorful scarf!). I also love the slight hint of peeking through the lace and peeking through the bag.

P.S. The Ark Bag also comes in acrylic – this mother-of-pearl mini is stunning!
