If you ask my friends, they will gladly tell you about a little hashtag that they made up while we were vacationing in California recently….#hillarycantwearwhite! And while yes, it’s true that usually whenever I wear white, it’s pretty inevitable that I will spill something on it. This does not keep me from wearing it. I see it as a challenge. How long can I go before I spill something?!

That definitely comes into play when wearing these adorable white culottes that I picked up last year. I only got to wear them a few times last summer, though. Because, when you wear culottes, and especially high-waisted ones, you need to wear some sort of heel or wedge to keep you from looking like you drowned in your pants! So when I finally got to wear them, I opted for this cute little back bow top and nude lace-up heels.

Speaking of this top, how cute is this little bow on the back? I bought it in Lake Geneva a couple of years ago at this adorable little boutique. I love cute and unique boutique finds, but I feel bad featuring them on here because it’s hard to find something that will even be close.

Hope you’re all having a great week so far! It’s almost over!

As always, thanks for reading!

xoxo, Hillary
