Hi BG! Have fun in Chicago. I'm not a big white girl but you make it look great. I may give it a go.

I do wear white, but not TOO much. We're going to an all-white boat cruise for the 4th of July, so I need to by something fresh, crisp and white ASAP.

Great post!

I must admitted that I'm a black and white girl.
I love white in the summer and black in the winter.
But I'm very excited about the stain remover.
Great find, TKS!

yes the tide pens are 100% with anything white

Wes said...

I'm so glad you threw the Tide pen in there b/c the whole time I was checking out your post I was thinking "I love white but I'm too afraid to wear it for fear of getting diry!!"... Great post as usual!

i LOVE wearing white in the summer...not head to toe (unless it's a summer dress) but usually a white tank with tons of bangles or something like that. White looks fierece with dark skin.

Enjoy your vacation. The sorts are cute and the white shirt is great. I was just telling a pal that I need a white dress this summer.
Thanks for this post.

BGG, I love white. It's especially pretty against brown, sun kissed skin. I just bought a new white tank and white sandals but I need a few more pieces. I absolutely love the white purse from Target. I need to go shopping!

I love the idea of a good chic white pant in the summer; it seems so classic. Unfortunately, I rarely wear white in the summer because I have a bad habit of spilling food and drinks on myself. But, since you mentioned the Tide To Go Pens, I may venture out in white more often.

BTW I loved the white shoes. They look like a definite must have.

B said...

I don't have much white. Chile, I'm a messy thang. Save travels to Chi!! Have fuuuun.

I'm too clumsy to wear white!

For example - last week I went to a boat party for a work party out of town... and decided it was a must to do white - so I donned white skinnies. They looked super fab and I was super careful... so then later that night when getting ready for bed in my hotel - I spilled some of my diet Coke all over the side table and mopped. Thank god I had changed by that point.

Well - just my luck - because I woke up in the morning and found the worst of worst scenarios --- I thought my brand new white skinny pant was a towel and mopped up my soda spill with my white pants! I was horrified to say at the very least.

That's a prime example why I can't do white - but I'll live vicariously through the BGs here!

PS - I did salvage the pair with a good dry cleaner - but lesson learned!

I love the look of white in the summer, but am prego at this time. Do you know of any great maternity designers out ( other than liz lange at Target). Everyone is rockin the same styles. Thanks! Keep blogging!

Although I love wearing white, I always mange to get a stain on it so I keep it to a minimum. I'm always looking for the perfect white t shirt so i'm definitely going out to buy that v neck tee!

@Browngirlspeak - I will be on the lookout for cute maternity clothes for you!
