My Recent Go-To Summer Trend: White Dresses

Hi everyone! Hope you are all very well. Recently, we celebrated the Fourth of July in the U.S. This day was spent completely at the beach, where I swam in the water, visited some friends, and of course watched fireworks right next to the pier. There’s no better sight than exploding colors above the ocean and watching fireworks from neighboring cities going off up the coast of Southern California! Anyways, for today’s post I wanted to write about a very simple trend that I’ve been obsessed with: white dresses! I’ve been seeing so many clothing shops that I love as well as Instagramers that have been posting a ton of white pieces. And I’m SO into it! Let’s get into the post!


Okay, how perfect is this little white dress? PSYCH IT’S A ROMPER! When I bought this piece, I actually didn’t realize it was a romper. However, I was pleasantly surprised that it fit me PERFECTLY! I normally have a hard time with rompers, but when I find one that fits me like a glove, I get so excited. I bought this gorgeous little thing at Princess Polly, and it’s also linked on my 21 Buttons so you can shop it directly from me!

One trend I’m also really loving is ruched sleeves. At first I thought these sleeves were too girly for me, but I actually love the look of them. This romper also has a smocked waist, which is very flattering for anyone’s figure and not too restraining. It forms specifically to your body, and I love that! The bottom half of it has layers of white material, making it very flowy and stunning.



This next white dress (and yes, it’s actually a dress LOL), is much more casual than the first. It’s much better for everyday wear yet just as comfortable! Again, it’s from Princess Polly and you can shop it on my 21 Buttons. With t-shirt sleeves and a tie at the front, this dress is perfect for the summer weather! It’s light and airy while being very well made. I’m always so impressed by the quality of Princess Polly clothes since they come all the way from Australia! It also has the cutest ruffle detailing at the waist, which I think is the best addition to a simple dress. You all have really been loving this dress, so be sure to check it out (and where I got my phone case in this photo) on my 21 Buttons!


Here’s a little snapchat from my recent Instagram post, where I had a bit of a Marilyn Monroe moment while shooting. Sometimes things just don’t go as planned, LOL! But sometimes, you get the best photos that way!

Below are a few snapshots of some of my favorite white dresses from Princess Polly. They have a specific category on their website dedicated JUST to white dresses! How dope is that?? It’s so easy to shop popular trends on their site, which is one reason I love them so much! Head on over and let me know if you find an item you particularly love or would want to see a post about!

    The white dress and romper look absolutely gorgeous on you! I always find that white dresses make me look paler than I am, although they are meant to accentuate your tan so are really good if you live somewhere it is sunny a lot. How did you find postage and packaging costs from Australia? xx

      Thank you! Also Princess Polly is an Australian based company, did I really link from the Australian site??🤦🏼‍♀️ my bad! But they also have a US site among others I believe

        Ah okay, that makes sense. I knew they were an Australian Company so presumed they shipped from Australia only! xx
