Friday Faves: The Great White Doily

(Sigh), doilies.  My closet is FULL of ’em.  I’m talking about those frothy, white-on-white frocks made of lace, crochet, eyelet, or any sort of feminine, intricate fabric. DOILIES.  Is there anything more effortless or more ethereal??  Does ANYTHING scream summertime like a doily does???  Or look better with a sunkissed tan?  Ahem – I think not.  Behold:  my favorite wardrobe staple of all time.

Olive Oil in Unknown

Crochet heaven at Chic Wish

White lace AND beading? Perfect for a rehearsal dinner.

Perfect for a fancy summer BBQ

Proof that black accessories can rap with white lace

Pretty pretty beachy breezy, as seen on We Heart It

How much do you wanna walk down the beach in THAT?  Yeah – me too.

Aryn K. White Dress…  AND it’s backless??  I die.

I see London, I see France – but what a great combo!  See-through white maxi skirt as a pool cover-up.  And that chick’s life looks delightfully easy-breezy.  Exhale.

I think I’d even like to take a snooze in a doily.

Are you ready to kick some summery whites or WHAT??  To find great pieces, try sites like Shopbop, or for budget-friendly, easy breezy finds, I would also source Etsy.  And go pop some tags at the local thrift shop – there are always great vintage finds to be had!

Hope you guys have a great weekend!
