Casual White Dress aka the Ideal Picnicking Outfit

Casual White Dress aka the Ideal Picnicking Outfit

Yayyyyy it’s after Memorial Day! You know what that means? It’s finally time for ALL of the white dresses!

This casual white dress – which I scored from Rent the Runway – is a great piece for summer adventures. And I mean any summer adventures, whether they be brunches or parties, picnics or vineyard frolicking.

And that’s basically my summer to-do list. With a big emphasis on vineyard frolicking.

Rent the Runway Slate & Willow White Picnic Party Dress Kate Spade Breath of Fresh Air I Need A Vacation Clutch ASOS New Look Flat Strappy Sandal Lilly Pulitzer Gold Tassel Earrings, BaubleBar Signet Ring White Dress to Wear to a Picnic

What I’m Wearing:

Dress: Slate & Willow / Belt: Lilly Pulitzer, old (similar) / Clutch: Kate Spade (also via Rent the Runway)
Shoes: ASOS / Earrings: Lilly Pulitzer, old (similar) / Bracelet: Lilly Pulitzer / Ring: BaubleBar

Before I forget: this dress runs a little bit big. I’m wearing the size 6 and, if it weren’t for the bust, I could’ve sized down to a size 4. Just keep that in mind when you order it.

So now to take a complete detour: I owe y’all an apology. I know a lot of y’all have gotten used to my posting schedule; Monday – outfit, Tuesday – outfit, Wednesday – recipe, Thursday – outfit, Friday – lifestyle… and I just totally just didn’t post yesterday. And for that, I am sorry.

I did, in fact, have a post (this post, actually) queued up on Sunday to go live yesterday. All I had left to do was write the copy. And then Sunday afternoon happened.

My friend Katherine and I went to the Dallas Margarita Meltdown. What is this “meltdown”, you say? Basically, it was a gathering of about 40 different bars and restaurants from all around Dallas, and each was challenged to make their “best” margarita. And the attendees got to choose the winner.

In all honesty, I wouldn’t attend this event again. Most of our afternoon was spent waiting in various lines for about 1 1/2 ounces (aka a shot) of margarita from each bar/restaurant. The vast majority of the margaritas paled by comparison to the margaritas I make at home (like these blood orange margaritas and these sparkling margaritas) and many of the margaritas were too sugary or too salty or even tasted like they were made from a margarita mix. Yuck. In an effort to get our money’s worth (tickets to the event were $45 each), we each probably tasted about 20 different margaritas… and I don’t know if I would have purchased an entire glass of a single one.

So basically, to be honest, there was a bit too much crappy margarita in my system (read into that what you will) Sunday night for me to feel comfortable writing a post that would make any semblance of sense for Monday. So I just… didn’t. And instead I went to bed at around 9:15PM aka the moment Game of Thrones was over and I slept until 9AM and it was amaaaaazing.
