Styling a White Dress in Summer

Today I’m wearing a wedding dress and no, I’m not going to a wedding…or a fancy dress party.
Neither is this a joke.

Don’t worry.
I’ve not turned into a ‘Miss Havisham’ or completely taken leave of my senses.
Nor have I decided to dress in a more avant-garde style, channelling an eccentric vibe.
am wearing a wedding dress for real.

Let me explain myself…

This dress is a wedding dress and is sold as such.
It would be perfect for those low-key, casual and easy-going events that are always great fun to attend.

However, the beauty of a dress like this is that it’s not really a wedding dress at all.
It’s just an incredibly comfortable, classically cut, ivory dress.

Perfect for, well… wearing!

I wore this dress on holiday and I’ve got plans to dress it up for a Christmas party, but today I’m wearing it to run errands and get in some shopping.
A normal day.

And why not?!

The fabric has a beautiful drape and it’s fully lined in a substantial jersey fabric, so no nasty pant-lines on display… phew!

It doesn’t crush up when sitting in a car (or bus) AND it wipes easily when you slitter your soup down it…. not that that happened to me of course*.

Just in case you’re wondering… I’ve not been sponsored by this brand I just LOVE their dresses!

For me, white calls out for silver accessories in summer and this outfit was a doddle to throw together.

Silver accessories and a denim jacket.
Done and done!

DRESS: c/o Alie Street… now on sale with 60% off (less than £70)
JACKET: Boden (old)
SHOES: American Apparel (old)
CLUTCH: Vintage… It’s too small to be practical (only holds my purse and phone) so I threw it in a large shopper, which is not in these pictures.
NECKLACE & BROOCH: Charity shopped

Do you wear White/ Ivory?
How would you wear this dress to suit your personal style? 
I’d love to know!
