The Summer Style Report: White Out

I have lately been digging the palest shades on the colour-less spectrum: whites, off-whites, and everything in between. It does match my Snow White skin, after all - HA!

But let's be real, sometimes it can be hard for an ultra pale gal like me to wear whites without blinding people, but I say if you're liking the pale shades of white this summer, go for them! We all have to face the sun sooner or later.

When I think of the "colour" (colour/shade debate - you decide) white, I think of things like daisies, marshmallows, and light sandy beaches. If that doesn't scream S-U-M-M-E-R to you, I don't know what does.

[Side note: Yes, I am aware that I have left out the obvious: snow, snowmen, wild yetis. Realistically, who wants to blend in with the snow? I stick to my darks in the winter for a reason. I'll stop with the pale jokes now. Did you hear? Pale is the new tan. It even said on a t-shirt.]

These five picks are great to pair with a splash of colour or simple neutrals like black, but I would bring out the light greys and earthy tones. Save your black wardrobe for the dreary months of slush invasions and ice traps.
