White, But Make It Fall

While convention says white should be put away after Labor Day, I’m here to break all the rules. I do generally try to avoid the “summer white” look, but I will totally wear white and, you know, make it fall.

A fun fact about these ballet flats is that I had them for over a year before I wore them even once. I bought them and then wasn’t sure if I liked them. I even almost sold them when we moved because I just hadn’t worn them at all!

Well, now they’re one of my most worn shoes! I am so glad I kept them because I’m finding the brown oh-so-versatile. I think having this brown belt in heavy rotation has really helped too.

I actually love them so much that I’m considering buying the city sandal in the same color. I think we have a little bit more time where open toes can work, right?!?

And this is the Celeste dress in cream! I tracked it down on Poshmark earlier this year because I missed out on the color the first time around. Well, I guess it was so popular that they brought it back in every color. It’s such a gorgeous silhouette and toes the line of casual and dressy just perfectly. (I do recommend going up one size for this one though!)

I love this dress so much that I didn’t want to put it away for the cooler months. I plan on wearing it with brown (like shown), navy, and black to make it work for fall and winter.

Love that you posted pictures without retouching the bruise on your leg. I very much appreciate the authenticity. Also – hope it heals soon!


I love the Celeste dress in this color!! I have the navy, and have been meaning to add this one! I also break rules, and wear white year round!! My mantra this steamy September has been a “summer outfit, but make it fall” ahahah! We are so on the same page!! Happy official fall, Carly! 🙂

This post is so timely because just this morning I was pondering if I could still wear one of my white Gal Meets Glam dresses. I usually do the same thing and make the ensemble feel like fall with my accessories. Thanks for the reassurance; the entire outfit looks great! (P.S. Get the sandals!)


Wow! You are looking so pretty. I’m obsessed with the style and this white dress. You truly have a good taste of fashion and style selection. I love your fashion style and I just fall in love with these pearl tops. This looks so beautiful. In these days Labret Piercing is a huge trends. Wearing a labret piercing jewelry is a great way to add a little something to your style. I’ll definitely try this outfit with my beautiful nose rings. Thanks.
