Of course white works and I picked a simple tee from Splendid. I played with the jewelry a bit.

Wrapping things up, the bag is from Kate Spade($278). It also has a shoulder strap. The beachy weave is a nice touch for summer. And on my feet? Gold sandals (three years old) from Tory Burch that never seem to go out of style!
