I’ve loved the look of head-to-toe white for summer, but it’s just not a terribly practical dressing formula. Especially for a food-accident-prone owner of two shedding kitties such as myself. I wore this outfit for a recent TV segment about maxi dresses and felt glamorous all day – even got stopped in the parking lot by a gal who said I looked beautiful, bless her heart – but can’t imagine doing it on the regular. I’m a stain magnet already, and wearing white always highlights my talent for splashing salad dressing on my clothes.

How do you feel about all-white looks for summer? Great in theory, not in practice? Or do you just go for it and deal with any mishaps in the laundry room?

    I love the look of all white in the summer. You do look glamorous.

    Me in all white? I can barely manage a white shirt all day at work. And that’s if I don’t eat or drink coffee. Or have a bib the size of a blanket. Ever notice how white attracts spills with the most contrast? Coffee, Dark chocolate, tomato sauce, black berries.

    I don’t think I’d put the flowy long dress and the blazer together.

    Oh you look stunning! White really looks good on you but I know what you mean about being worried about stains. I am convinced that if I wear white jeans I will sit in some melted chocolate. I generally keep the white on top and buy it in washable fabrics.

    On me, all white equals bride, no matter how I slice it. Or even worse…nurse-y.
