White Hot Summer Style

Hey mamas!  We made it to another Friday, woo hoo!  Which means it’s time for Payday Pretty – the day of the week where we take a little out of the weekly budget and do something pretty for ourselves.

This week’s $50 and under inspiration features one of my favorite summer combos – white and silver.  It’s a perfectly crisp and put together beach-y look for day or night.

OK, can we just talk for a minute about this tunic?

This is multi-tasking perfection.  Picture it as a swimsuit cover up, with a pair of shorts for day or with white denim for a casual dinner out.  You will be finding excuses to wear it every day!

This white bandeau maxi dress is pretty special too.  Pair it with flip flops for day or dress it up with silver jewelry and wedges for night.

Silver jewelry is the perfect finishing touch for these white looks.  Try a statement ring in a hammered finish like this one.
