C.Wonder Fashion for Summer

It’s been steamy and the question is what to wear to look fresh. The answer is white. This dress is pique and perfect for sunny days and bright parties. I found it at C.Wonder and the store has become a style resource for me.

C.Wonder keeps stepping it up and up with each season. The preppy basics have gotten some boho edges. The eyelet detail turns this simple shift into something super pretty.

I added a necklace I found from Kohl’s–it was $14! The sparkly sandals are now seasons old and still making me happy.

As you can see I am not spending too much time on my hair! I’ve been swimming so much this summer that ponytails are often the standard look. I jazzed this up a bit with a gold band.

The final touch was the Anthropologie bag. I scored it on sale for $24.

    A white dress does look so crisp for summer! I too didn’t do much to my hair for today’s post… ; )

    I’m loving all of the Stella and Dot necklaces from the fall collection! That Somervell would make an excellent layering piece!

      I wouldn’t attempt this color in the dead of winter. My olive skin would not be a good match when I am pale.

    the gold headband with the white dress is stunning. it’s amazing how two neutrals can really make each other pop. beautiful look!

    • momtrends

      Thank you. I tossed it on at the last minute to tame the frizz. Whew! It worked.

      Thanks so much. The fun part of the white dress is that it plays so well with other accessories.

    Very polished! Totally love ur hair Nicole! Such a summer-friendly style:-) And there is something about bubble necklaces – even though they are EVERYWHERE, I still can’t get enough of them – Just got one for myself (again!) recently and loving it! Kohls white one is a great choice!!

    Hope you are having a wonderful day!

      Ah the bubble necklace. I held out for so long. When I saw this one on sale at Kohl’s I knew it had to be mine.

  • Adrienne Shubin

    You look so fresh and ladylike! I love the all white look on you. Your skin just glows!

    • momtrends

      Ha! Ladylike. That is such a fun compliment. Thank you!

    OK. Hello! You look absolutely STUNNING in these photos! Your skin is just glowing. And I keep trying to get a better look at those sandals. I love them.

    • momtrends

      They are old and have been featured before–I will try to remember the name.

    I seem to be gravitating towards wearing more white as well. I’m truly envious of the great deals you scored – but even moreso at how good you look in your no-fuss ponytail ;-)

      Sometimes humidity is the key to trying something new like the headband.

  • Jenny @ Babblings of a Mommy

    Looking great Nicole! I have those same sandals! :)

    I am a big fan of the little white dress for summer – I feel like I’ve been searching for the perfect one forever!

  • momtrends

    The key with a white dress is Tide stain removers and steering clear of the kids!

  • momtrends

    It was a solution for a very humid day. Glad it worked.

    Ohh I love C. Wonder! Great things at great prices!

    I haven’t been doing blowouts either this summer and have to say that I totally love it. I feel like I have so much more time!
