On the blog yesterday I'd commented that I wouldn't want to wear any of my dresses with the look, but couldn't get this idea out of my head so decided to try it out today before the heat returns in a day or two.

So! Short fluffy white dress with white kick crops and white pumps; I did try a few other shoes (these, these, and these) but liked best the simplicity and cleanness of the very plain pumps. Topped with a cropped denim moto that's actually a very pale gray, about as light as possible without actually being white. Accented with silver (clutch, earrings) to keep with the light and tonal theme plus add a little shine, and finished with bright orange lip gloss to add a little warmth.

Really love how it turned out! (Color me completely surprised ^^) I don't think I'd like it with any other color cropped pants; the all white is definitely the major appeal for me -- arty without the black. Will definitely wear again and going into cooler weather can easily swap the kick crops out for ankle-length white skinnies; and when it's really cold the pumps to cream booties.

As a small aside, I feel entirely comfortable taking a little leeway with the formula and donning a dress that's a bit above the knee vs. at the knee -- I'm short, after all! If any of you other petites are interested but on the fence about this formula, try it with a dress/tunic that's just above the knee for easier-to-navigate proportions especially if heels are out.
