OUTFIT INSPIRATION: BRIGHT WHITE

Need a little outfit inspiration to get yourself out of a wardrobe rut? Whenever I'm feeling uninspired by my closet, I do two things: 1) I clean out my closet and 2) I turn to Pinterest. Clearing out the clutter to create more space for the pieces I actually wear (and the items I want to add to my closet) makes it so much easier to mix and match. And I can usually find some pretty obvious trends on my style board. This time around, I'm clearly having a moment with bright whites and summery neutrals. Here are a few of the looks inspiring my closet clean-out...

There's a way to do preppy summer neutrals without looking like you wore your tennis whites out to happy hour. Here are a few of the essentials I'm moving to the front of my closet or putting on my list to purchase by summer's end (with a few options to cover every price point!).

Lace top

Modern pearls

Eyelet dress

Fisherman sweater (tip: buy from the boys' section for a more fitted look!)

Breezy (maxi or midi) skirt

The perfect white button-down

Here's hoping head-to-toe white will be just as chic with a few iced coffee spills. Murphy's law ;) In spite of its impracticality, all white is all right by me. Would you give it a go this summer?

I love wearing white in the summer. Something about having a tan with the crispness of white is just so refreshing! Great picks!

Love these picks! I also appreciate the budget friendly choices, as well as the fact that you have started listing the retailer in the link. I'm guessing that was in response to the feedback on your recent post; thanks for honoring that request!

White is truly my favorite. It is so fresh, and can be played up with fun accessories, but my favorite is to keep it classic paired with either more white, navy, or camel. Can't go wrong!!

I'm in a major style rut where I cannot find anything I like to wear. I love that all white outfit with the flowy skirt.
