(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.

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

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!
