Barely There

For spring and summer, we often think of colors. However, wearing beige and white allow a gal's cool inner diva to shine through. With killer temperature in the summer, a touch of white or beige instantly soothes my eyes. There is no need for elaborate accessories, just a beautiful tan and a pair of savvy shoes, a gal is ready to conquer any summer day. left by Jill Stuart --- perfect for day

2. Ralph Lauren white pleat dress $150 via ralphlauren.com
3. Prada belted dress with 2 front pockets $850 via Saks

4. Michael by Michael Kor double breast belt dress $169.50 via Nordstrom --- I have a Burberry dress almost exactly like it, except I paid around $600 on sale.
5. Stella McCartney beige tunic dress $1275 via intermix --- Very casual chic!
6. Zac Posen tier ruffle beige dress $925 via Saks

  14. haha - I wore my white pencil skirt, white tan and mustard wrap top yesterday while roaming the Austin Pecan Festival...doesn't help you stay cool in those humid temps (90 degrees with minimal breeze)! I couldn't wait to drive the 2 hours back to Houston to shower and change clothes.
