What I'm Wearing: Favorite Summer Outfit

Let me go ahead and apologize for being totally MIA lately! I know I haven't posted in, well, forever, but for good reason! I've been traveling to Los Angeles and I've also started a new job! What!! I'm now the Director of Marketing and Strategy with a luxury real estate company and I'm over the moon about my new position! So, again, I apologize for the severe lack of communication and outfits on my end. Which, if you follow me on Instagram, you'll be able to catch some of my favorite shots around and about LA. I'll have an LA recap post up soon but for now let's get down to brass tacks. 

Summer is here, there's no doubt about it! I got so used to the cooler weather in LA that I forgot how hot Charleston can really get. I'm talking 90 degree days here folks! I got a little spoiled with the weather in LA but I wouldn't change it for the world. It definitely has me getting more creative with my outfits and I'm opting more for cooler dresses, never pants, and wearing my hair either loosely or up in a bun. Honestly, I'm just looking for ways to minimize the sweat that I experience every day. 

This white dress from Madewell is total perfection! It's cool and looks amazing on! I love how it keeps me cool during the day and that I can dress it up for work or out with P or the girls at night. Pair it with some seriously cool accessories and you'll be the hottest (no pun intended) girl around town! I'm totally in love with this dress but take note, you'll definitely need a slip underneath it. Or, if you're into showing people what color underwear you like to wear. I won't judge, pinky promise. 

How adorable is this Vacation clutch from Madewell? I absolutely love it and can't wait to go back and purchase it! I love how big it is for traveling and that I can fit my iPad and other travel necessities in it. Heaven knows I still have a lot of traveling to do this year (I'm looking at you Charlotte, Hilton Head, New Jersey). 

Now I'm not one to wear lots of dangly or heavy earrings but these earrings are incredibly deceiving! They look heavy but are actually very lightweight! I love how they add that bit of boho flair to my white dress. So LA don't you think?

Oh, and if you haven't noticed, we're on a new site! We're still working out some kinks and linking old posts to the new site and building out more fun content, but it's new! It's amazing! It's the new Paper Meets Pearl! I'm so excited to debut our new site and can't wait to keep adding fun new things to it. Do you like the new site so far? I love how clean and crisp it is compared to our old site. 

What's your favorite summer outfit? Do you stick to whites and lightweight clothes? Let me know in the comments!
