A Note on Style: Summer Whites

Hello, LDV readers! This is Karima from A Note on Style. Few things say summer as well as crisp whites. Although it’s no longer unusual to see a sprinkling of white in the wardrobe outside of the traditionally appropriate season of Memorial Day to Labor Day, there’s something about wearing head to toe white that feels indulgent. I’m getting a jump on that by snapping up the best pieces now, before they’re gone. Dresses are a favorite, actually an essential in my book, just like white jeans and cotton shirting. Shoes and bags, in shades from optic to cream, continue to elevate even the most classic looks with a modern edge. And I love to shift things around in the home to highlight white accents. I’ll update cushions or pillows, use white flowers exclusively, and take white serve wear out of the cabinet and use the pieces as vases, trays and catchall.

  1. There is what appears to be a small 4 piece herb planter set in the collection with the Lumira candle and the Gucci Floral watch. I didn’t see any information for that item, I would love to purchase it. Can you provide the link for this item? Thank you
