Yesterday, I attended Carambola White Sands in St. Kitts. It’s a huge white party on the beach. Attendees go all out for the fete. It’s usually sizzling hot in St. Kitts at this time of year, so when I thought about choosing an outfit, I knew I wanted something regal but breezy. And, the lacy details of an eyelet dress meet both requirements. I knew I found THE ONE when I first saw today’s featured dress–the Lilly Pulitzer Melody Maxi Dress.
What I’m wearing:
Lilly Pulitzer Melody Maxi Dress c/o | Sunglasses (similar)| Sandals | Lip
I love the feminine silhouette and the striking tiered skirt on this dress. It moves beautifully, and in turn, makes your every move look graceful.
The strappy dress has see-through lace at the waist, which adds a subtly sexy touch to the maxi dress.
Of course, there’s nothing more lovely than an all-over eyelet dress. This one has lightweight fabric that kept me cool throughout the party.
Need something similar? I highly recommend this number. By the way, this dress fits true to size. I’m wearing a size 4.
Be sure to check out all the eyelet dresses at the end of this post. There’s surely an option for your next summer fete in there.

Yes, I wear black sometimes. When I do, I have so much fun with it. All-black outfits need not be boring. And, the moment I saw this Topshop Tufty jumpsuit, I knew it would be the perfect, non-boring, black number to add to my wardrobe. I actually wore it a few weeks ago to catch Ledisi performing with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra at Powell Hall.
What I’m wearing:
Topshop romper (sold out, option, option) | Sandals | Lip
Would you believe I found this Topshop Tufty Playsuit on sale for $30!?! Unfortunately, it sold out online before I could share the good news with you.
Party. New Year’s Eve celebrations. I envisioned this number being easy to grab for any occasion that demands an instant glam. The tufty detailing at the top and sleeves takes this romper to soaring style heights.
I’m wearing the romper with my go-to clear sandals. These barely-there sandals complement so much. Want proof? See them worn here, here, and here.
The fabulous thing about statement-making, all-black outfits is that they don’t require much in terms of accessorizing. Toss one on and go. I’m here for that, so I rounded up a few options at the end of this post. We all need reliable wardrobe staples like these, right?

All-white party in your near future? I got you. Today’s post will round up some fabulous all white outfits that’ll be perfect for any occasion this summer. First, I’m sharing a jumpsuit that I simply had to grab for myself. Then, at the end, the widget shares a curated list of all-white party options.
What I’m wearing:
Jumpsuit c/o | Sandals | Bag c/o | Sunglasses (similar) | Lip
When the occasion calls for all white, I always opt for a one piece wonder. And, y’all, when I saw this jumpsuit with all its dramatic ruffles, I had to have it. And, I know, it looks expensive. But, it’s not! This beauty retails for only $54.
This jumpsuit is my first item from Red Dress. I relied heavily on the size chart to determine my size. I’m glad I did, too, because I’d often just order a small, but I definitely needed a medium.
I was immediately smitten by the ruffles on the bodice of this dress. 2019 is the year to be a little extra with your style, and this jumpsuit gets that.
I’m always here for a sexy plunging neckline as well. The jumpsuits gives us a double v-neckline. It dips in the back too.
