White Linen Summer Dress

To me, white dresses are an essential for a spring and summer wardrobe. They can be paired with so many different things like sandals, sneakers, or honestly...even boots! This one is a little more dressier/fancier than the dresses I normally wear. But I still wanted to share this look with you guys especially with so many special occasions that occur during the summer. It's probably not the best thing to wear to a wedding (unless the bride doesn't care) but it's definitely a look that can be worn to a baby shower, brunch, first date, night out, anniversary dinner....you get the point!

I decided to also unbutton a few of the bottom buttons to give this dress a little more movement and I feel like it also makes it slightly more casual. Comfort is always a must for me, so being able to move around without feeling stuck is important.

Still having a moment with bucket bags over here too! I got this one for myself as a gift for my birthday this past march. I've talked about this a little bit on my instagram, but I have really been purchasing more investment pieces rather than buying a bunch of lower prices items where the quality usually isn't as good. This bag was one of those for me! 
With that being said, I still do shop occasionally at a few fast fashion shops. I am not perfect whatsoever! But I do try to be more aware of my spending habits and try and be as reasonable and conscious as possible. Thrift and vintage finds are still (and will always be) my favorite.

One last thing. I know investment pieces can be tough! Spending that much money on one thing can be really scary. But I think of it as quality over quantity (which is tricky sometimes as a fashion blogger too). I've realized though, I end up wearing those investment pieces so much more because I truly love them! And I want to get as much wear out of them as possible to justify the purchase! haha There are also ways to find these nicer pieces at a discounted price though. I am always drooling over By Far and their shoes. The styles are so unique but they are quite a bit out of my price range. I ended up doing a lot of digging around and found these on Depop in my size for only $90! So it can definitely happen! Just keep looking! <3

What I am wearing: Dress: Raven + Lily, Bag: Staud (or Shop Staud here), Scarf: Vintage Courreges via Etsy (only $30!) Shop Scarves here, Shoes: By Far (found on Depop for $90!) Shop Mules Here, Necklace: Wolf Circus
