when a woman hears "LBD," she doesn't even need to process what exactly this acronym stands for. every classy lady needs her trusty LBD - little black dress, boys - but as a midwestern college girl who spends her days lounging on the porch, buying nail polish at cvs, and going to music festivals, a black dress is the last thing i will reach for this summer.

instead, i have an LWD - a little white dress. when in doubt, i reach for this forever21 number i bought at the beginning of the summer and have since worn at least twenty times. if i'm worried about the scorching indiana heat, want something comfy and easy, or just can't settle on a decent outfit, this embroidered ivory dress never lets me down! it always feels fresh and breezy - just what i need on a fashion-frustration day. i can dress it up or down, and can accessorize it in countless different ways so it never feels tired. i truly believe a little white (or cream) dress is an everyday summer essential.

one of the best parts? this dress cost me around $25 - and while i hope it lasts forever, i'm never bothered by the nagging fear of wearing it to death or, god forbid, ruining it in some way. (in fact, i almost want to go back to forever21 and see if i can buy one (or two) more to save for next summer...)

here are some other great LWD options for you!

Free People Lace Trim Shift Dress ($118.00) -- a bit of a splurge, but i think it would be worth it! {just look at that detail at the hem...}
