How To Style It: The Little White Dress

It seems like I'm obsessed with all things lace and embroidered this summer and when I saw this beautiful little number at Mendocino, I knew it had to get in my closet! The dress itself is the epitome of pretty but as you know, my personal style is far from precious so I had to find a way to toughen it up. Nothing says hardcore like a good leather gladiator sandal so I went with them and then built my outfit over to my handbag next. My Givenchy Antigona Bambi pouch is still a favourite of mine and helps break up the pretty embroidery from the dress, again adding that edge that I was looking for. The pocket square wrapped around my wrist is turning out to be my favourite accessory this summer and I love how it adds a casual vibe to the whole look. So what do you guys think? Can a pretty white dress look transcend to edgy territory?
