That Popsicle Dress

This is the last of my "outfit posts" from my vacation to South Carolina. I mentioned this in a previous post, but for the hot and humid weather in Charleston, you definitely can't beat a simple sleeveless dress to keep cool! At first, this simple shirt dress from Anthropologie might look relatively unassuming, but upon closer inspection there are some seriously cute popsicles adorning the fabric. I saw a few other bloggers posing with this dress and eating popsicles on their blogs and, truth be told, given the weather, I sure wish I had one handy as we were strolling the streets of Charleston when these photos were taken! Actually, I did get a free snow cone at one of the plantations I went to, which was very refreshing and the price was right! (I did, however, almost get the snow cone all over my dress, which is one of the drawbacks to wearing white!)




Despite the obvious danger of stains, the great thing about wearing white is that it's a blank canvas that lends itself to numerous options for styling. Even though this dress has a pattern, it is essentially a pretty basic white dress that could be styled in numerous ways. I decided to style it with pops of pink and purple to accentuate the popsicles in the print. Below I have selected a few adorable white dresses for summer and some fun accessories that would go hand in hand with the dresses just like popsicles go hand in hand with hot weather!

  10. That is such a cute printed dress! Perfect for summer, although I do agree with you white seems like a magnet for spills and stains haha! I like the bright cobalt sandals and pink bag, lovely accessories.
