This dress is one of those pieces that I'm just over the moon about. I love the way the gathers fall, I love how it's oversized in terms of volume but balanced by a micro-mini hem length, and I love that the simple white palette allows the look to be all about shape and texture. For some reason dresses like this also seem to me to demand roughed up boots.

We spend the afternoon at the Fourth of July parade in my neighborhood. It's an amazing event that completely illustrates the spirit of my neighborhood.
