Rule Breaker.

April 30, 2013

Filed Under: Style

There are a few items that I’ve had hanging in my closet just begging to be worn. This dress from Tailor and Stylist is one of those items. I really, really, really love this dress and have been impatiently waiting for an appropriate time to wear it. Some might argue that since we haven’t hit Memorial Day yet that it’s still technically not appropriate, but I am choosing to ignore those people. I wore white shoes the other day, too. So take that Memorial Day fashion rule followers. I do what I want!

    Down South we wear white starting at Easter – so you aren’t breaking any rules here. Rock that white – and if anyone says anything just tell them you are being southern today.

    Such a stunning dress! I feel like you should be riding a horse in it with all the awesome leather strap details!

    Pretty dress! I always forget about the whole “when to wear white” rules…I think at this point, we all pretty much wear whatever we want anyway. :-)

    That necklace is a pretty touch to a nice spring/summer outfit, too!

    I’ve been reading your blog for over a year and I think this is def in my top favorite looks! I’ve been eyeing that necklace for a while and think I’m finally gonna break down and get it. You wouldn’t happen to have a promo code would you? Considering you’re modeling it on their website (SO COOL)

    I absolutely LOVE that dress!! It’s such a pretty style for spring and summer, pre-Memorial day or not.

    The detailing on it looks incredible. I’ve never seen anything quite like that before.

    Absolutely in LOVE with this dress! I just made my first purchase from Tailor and Stylist thanks to your post. Bought this dress in yellow for my brothers wedding in a few months. Hoping I like it on me as much as I like it on you! :)

  15. Wow, what a cute dress! I love the strap.

  16. LOVE that neckline – so unique. Camel and white always play so nicely together don’t they?

    I love how your hair matches the leather of your dress, watch and shoes :) I also love that you don’t feel a need to be tan to wear white. Your skin is gorgeous and will age beautifully!!

  18. Rosabella says:

    I love that dress, but I am curious about how sheer it actually is. is it lined?

  19. Jaclyn says:

    This outfit is perfect – I love all the matching tan accessories. Your flowy dress and sandals are beautiful.

    WHUT! This is the most perfect dress I’ve ever seen. I wanted to comment on your outfit above but I can’t get over this one lol. It also helps that it looks gorgeous on you.
