In My Closet | A Little White Dress for The Fourth of July


Everyone has their LBD, but what about a little WHITE dress?

It’s the 4th of July, and while I love my kids to be dressed all cutesy and patriotic, I prefer a simpler approach to showing my allegiance to America. (Ha.) In celebration of the beginning of summer, too, all the ladies need an adorable white dress. Pair your dress with a pop of red or royal blue and you’ve got a classy look for the ‘Merica festivities.


I have always been a huge fan of eyelet, and I think I would have eyelet everything if given the choice. (Well, eyelet and chambray.) The first thing I loved about this dress from Mayarya was the eyelet. Second, I am loving the off-the-shoulder trend. I’m tall with broad shoulders and technically even (gasp) plus size, and this trend is really working for me! You can fancy it up with a chunky statement necklace or long agate pendant necklace.


Mayarya makes clothes that are great for pregnancy, postpartum, nursing, and everything in between. On their site, you can see photos of the pieces on a pregnant and non-pregnant model. I love this concept because it saves some money to have pieces that don’t ever have to be boxed away or taken to Goodwill.

    I LOVE buying clothes that can double as maternity/nursing wear. I would always buy boring maternity clothes when I was first pregnant, and ended up never wearing them because they weren’t flattering. Love that you can find cute/functional clothes for any occasion! This is such a cute, classic look and can be worn any day! Looks great!!

    […] especially the midi length! A classic wrap dress is such a staple wardrobe piece. Clearly, I am obsessing over white this summer. I tend to gravitate toward neutral pieces as a rule, but white is just so […]
