To say that I am excited for the second Dallas Dîner en Blanc is a complete understatement. Dîner en Blanc is a worldwide event in which people from all over get together for a secret all white picnic. We had so much fun at the inaugural event last year that we forgot to stop and take pictures. One of the main things that stressed me out last year was what to wear. You, however, have no reason to worry! I am here to help you pick the perfect Dîner en Blanc outfit! Here are three simple guidelines to looking your very best at Dîner en Blanc:
- Find something that makes you feel comfortable and beautiful. For me that means something lightweight. (Dallas, TX in September. Yup, still HOT!)
- Wear a comfortable pair of shoes. I cannot stress this enough. If you are going to be wearing heels make sure you bring along a pair of white flats or sandals for all the walking. You never know where the secret location might be.
- Bring the fun with all the accessories. My biggest regret last year was buying the biggest fascinator and then forgetting it at home. I was really so sad. It gave my outfit that extra je ne sais quoi.
Now to the important part… Where to shop!
If you live in Dallas:
Lion & Witch
Lion & Witch is an Instagram dream come true. Seriously. I don’t think anyone can resist taking a mirror selfie with the “You look good” rug. Everyone who works there is incredibly friendly, and accommodating. Best of all, this boutique in the heart of Dallas, is affordable. Supporting local business while finding great pieces at great prices? Yes please!
These are some of my favorite looks we pulled together while we were in. (How cute is Bekah!?)
If you live elsewhere…
I was pleasantly surprised to find so many great white options. We found blouses, skirts, and dresses galore. Here are some of my favorite pieces. I was so obsessed with this drop-waist dress! It was so gorgeous, but was made for someone taller than 5’4″.
We found so many great pieces here, but I love that you can always find so much inventory online!
Here are my favorite six under $1oo!
Bonus Pro Tip: Have a white swatch as reference when shopping in store. The goal for Dîner en Blanc is to wear a bright, crisp, true white, and avoid pearl, eggshell, and off-white.
