With the temperature reaching an impressive ninety degrees here in LA yesterday, I got excited thinking about shedding all of those winter layers and slipping into something much more summery. One of my very favorite dresses that I can not bear to part with (no matter the stains or pulls in the fabric) is a simple white lace crochet dress. The shape is simple and season after season it always looks just right for hot summer afternoons paired with espadrilles and a cool beverage. There is something so romantic yet so fresh about a dainty white lace dress. It is a piece that every girl, southern belle or not, should have in her wardrobe.
