We’ve passed that fashion milestone known as Memorial Day, which traditionally signals the ol’ “go ahead” for wearing white (we know that’s somewhat outdated, but in the off chance you’re a traditionalist…). The only time of year a little white dress can trump the little black dress, other than your wedding day or perhaps the Oscars, is from June until late August. So, get your faux glow on and slip into something lighter and whiter to create your own white night.

Some day my prince will come… maybe.
Along with the official kick off of summer, Memorial Day is also the day that white dresses get the “go ahead” green light (according to some). While white dresses are most often associated with weddings, christenings, and clam bakes, in my book, a Tuesday is as good a day as any to wear a stark white dress. There is just something so fresh, so innocent and dare I say virginal about slipping into a snow toned frock? We’ve already worked up the courage with off white and now it’s go time, ladies. Get out your Tide To Go pens, self tanner, and biggest and brightest smile. Summer’s here and the living is easy.
