Ashley Brooke in White Maravea Charleston Day Dress - Ashley Brooke Designs


Because every girl needs a white dress for spring! 


I love white dresses all year round, but especially during the Spring! They are perfect for so many occasions and easy to dress up or down, so I try to invest in one great staple white dress every Spring.  And this year I landed on this beautiful embroidered white one by dressmaker Maravea. It’s easy to wear, polished, and the perfect length for my 5’8″ frame. I love the subtle details on the dress and the versatility of the cut. It’s honestly the perfect classic white dress!

So I thought it would be fun to show you how I’ll be wearing my white dress this Spring and Summer! One dress three ways, because who doesn’t like a good staple that you can put on repeat!

#1 Easter Brunch

Can you believe Easter is THIS Sunday!? Oh my gosh, I feel like this year is flying by already. I love wearing something extra special on Easter and this dress will be perfect for church and brunch this Sunday! 

I paired this dress with my favorite heels, my great-grandmother Ann’s vintage scarf, and a swipe of light pink lipstick. It’s put together and special.

#2 Date Night

A few weeks ago Ryan sent me a whole year’s worth of calendar invites to date nights. It was both sweet and hilarious. We’ve been bad about it lately and after over-committing ourselves to family/friend/work events he decided he’d take matters into his own hands and put it on every paper and digital calendar we use.

So far we’ve been on two of his scheduled dates and it’s been so fun! And this would be the perfect look for our casual date nights or happy hours! I usually bring along a light jacket or cardigan in case I get cold while we’re out and I love the way a denim jacket looks over a white dress.

#3 Farmer's Market

First, can we just talk about Dolly?!?!? Gah! How cute is she?! 

Anyway… I am way more of a dress girl than a shorts girl, especially during the Summer. For starters, dresses are cooler and easier to put on! So on Saturday morning I always gravitate towards an easy dress, straw tote, and big hat
