The little white dress, a summer staple

We chatted with Sara Mueller, a fashion blogger from A Dose of Pretty, to find out how she manages to stay cool during hot summer months.

I’m currently living in Miami with my husband and two kids, so I know a bit about this endless summer thing. As a mom of two, lifestyle blogger, and aspiring photographer, staying cool in the summer is not just preferable – it’s necessary. My happy place is when I am with my family, surrounded by pretty things, styling, creating content, taking photos, and traveling. You’ll pretty much find me with my camera everywhere I go. If I had to tell you about three things I can’t live without (aside from my family), it would be my camera, a good cup of coffee or tea, and my love for creativity.

One of my favorite things about Miami living is how it’s al fresco weather all year round, regardless of the heat. Since outdoor entertaining is the norm, I’ve learned that the key to staying cool (besides simply being in the shade) is dressing in light and flowy pieces of clothing. This summer I’m loving this little white dress.

Another thing I love is Parisian style – yes, I’m a Francophile. So of course, I picked Laduree as the place to debut this beautiful Garnet Hill dress. We were in Paris last summer, so being here at Laduree brings back fond memories of our trip.

This little number looks great dressed up a bit for an afternoon tea date with a friend, or to jaunt around the town running errands. And since I love my summer whites, I have a feeling this dress will be in constant rotation this season.

What do you have planned for the season?
