Over the last few months I’ve been on a mission to find the perfect white off the shoulder dress. You’d think it would be easy right? Not so much. For this one I had strict criteria: midi to maxi length, can’t be sheer or even slightly see-through, and the fabric has to be travel-friendly. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from packing over the last few months, it’s that you should avoid bringing anything silk, linen or cotton unless you don’t mind spending a ton of time steaming your clothes. I don’t know about you guys, but steaming and ironing is the last thing I want to do when I arrive at my destination.
For weeks I browsed my go-tos of Nordstrom, Shopbop and Revolve only to come up short. Each time I thought I’d stumbled on a winner, I’d discover the fabric was wrinkle-prone or it was too expensive for my budget. The WORST.
Then just when I thought all hope was lost and I’d pretty much given up my search, Lilly Pulitzer released their June drop of new arrivals. Immediately it was love at first sight when I saw this tassel trim maxi dress.
It checked off all my bullet points and I can attest to it’s travel-friendly quality. I packed it for Memorial Day weekend and was pleased to see hardly any wrinkles even after being folded in my suitcase. Seersucker chiffon FTW! The colored tassels weren’t a necessity but definitely added some extra bonus points. Such a cute touch right?
So gals if you’re looking for the perfect white dress for traveling I can attest that this one is tried and true! PS it’s also perfect for twirling and dancing. I may or may not have totally embarrassed Nick as we were shooting these photos…
