cheap(er) chic: staple white dress

I found it, the perfect summer staple-this cotton white dress (currently on sale for $189) from Karl Langerfeld. It is the perfect blank palette for almost every summer occasion when paired with the right accessories. Add a hint of gold to create a luxe look for evening:

prada bow ballet flats (40% off), grass earrings from anthropologie ($128), metallic leather clutch from j.crew ($98)
Some pops of bold colors and some beaded earrings for a Sunday brunch...

beaded earrings from anthropologie ($88), foldover marc jacobs clutch (50 off%), mystique sandals ($140)
A feminine cardigan and structured bag for your time in the office.
kate spade tote($198), Milly cardigan (40%) off, sam edelman flats ($99)
Do you have a special summer staple or go to clothing item in your closet?

What a great staple! I just adore all three of these outfits. It's amazing how different they all are but it's the same dress. Great job!

You're right Blair, that is the PERFECT dress for summer! It looks so easy to dress up or down and I really love the neckline. The one item in my closet that I'm going to be using a lot of is my bright yellow clutch, sure to brighten up many outfits this season!

I love that...three outfits with one basic dress. And I have those green shoes...they're super-duper comfy, and I get compliments on them every time I wear them!

Great lay-out, better than most magazines! I feel like everything in my wardrobe is go-to these days, I've pared it down so much! Probably have to say my cashmere hoodies, dvf wrap dresses, a couple of good jeans, a black tee shirt. Nothing really too exciting. I will have to shop the sales soon!
