June gloom is finally burning off here in Southern California so I feel that it is officially summer now - which means that it's time to prepare the summer wardrobe! There is nothing I love more than a great summer tan contrasted by a crisp white top or dress. White summer tops and dresses are my favorite - you can go simple or embrace the intricate details of a crochet, lace or eyelet top. You don't have to worry about a top having too much detail when it's solid white or ivory so accessorize it with a real statement piece. I think if you have a beautiful top or dress on you should avoid wearing a necklace because you don't want competition between the necklace and the top or dress. Stick to metal cuffs, big rings and chandelier earrings. Touches of colored stone accessories paired with white is always stunning - try turquoise, coral or agate.
