Lilee Fashion Dress

After a snowstorm and a whole bunch of rain, it was finally warm enough to wear a sleeveless dress and my great big sun hat! I was able to sit outdoors and sip drinks on a patio once again.

Ha! April Fools! While it was warmer than usual (maybe even hit 50 degrees that day), it was still not even close to warm enough for this outfit. The weather here has been absolutely miserable. And sadly, the big hat was just for the photos (I wasn’t outside long enough to actually need it), but I do wear this hat when it’s warm enough to be outdoors for more than 10 minutes at a time (click here & here for proof). I ended up swapping out the hat for a warm cardigan instead.

But back to my lame “April Fools” for a second. I absolutely hate this day to be honest. I am such a horrible liar, and I get anxious at the thought of even a really tiny fib. I’ll be avoiding social media and human contact in general until this day is over, haha.

My dress I am wearing in these photos is from the lovely Lilee Fashion! I’ve featured this store in several posts in the past and absolutely love my dresses from them. This dress was an effort to push me a bit out of my usual comfort zone. While it is a silhouette that I tend to gravitate to, the mesh fabric, low cut top and all white color are not the norm for me. The mesh outer layer gives it a slightly casual vibe, but the see-throughness of it and the low cut top make it a bit sexy. I couldn’t bring myself to get completely out of my comfort zone, though, and I did put a cami underneath the dress. I’m all for going out of the comfort zone, but low cut tops are just not something I find myself leaving the house in.

And the little white dress was all the rage last summer, and I swore I could not get behind that trend. I’m not sure if it’s in style this year or not, but I don’t mind the all-whiteness of this dress. The possibilities are endless for accessories then when you have a blank canvas (crazy accessories – my favorite)! I think I never liked the white dress trend because the majority of dresses brought to mind images of wedding dresses, which is not the case with this one. I didn’t even have a traditional white dress when I was married. I actually still wear my wedding dress for events, haha. I’ll have to do an outfit post with it sometime. 😉

  1. What a lovely dress! The white mesh is so pretty, and I love the hat! I get so nervous about pranks, too haha. It’s crazy!

      Thank you so much! 🙂 Haha, glad I’m not the only one! I’m such a terrible prankster! 🙂

  2. Joanna Joy says:

    I am in love with this outfit! You look so absolutely stunning in this all white outfit. The lattice cut out is so light and airy for spring and your hat is so beautiful with those shoes! People usually pull fast ones on me and I always forget what day it is and they get me every time haha.


    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Aw, thank you so much, Joanna! Haha, I did have one person get me going for a minute this year too…a fellow blogger had written a really convincing blog post that I totally fell for. Darn April Fools! Haha.

  3. thefashionsalt says:

    Hahaha, I started to get jealous reading that you were outside drinking cocktails! I love this dress and how that beautiful hat matches those amazing shoes! That is the perfect white dress, and I can’t wait to see a post with your wedding dress.

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Haha, unfortunately, there will be no outdoor cocktail drinking here for a while! It is way too cold. 😉 And thank you so much, Lili! I just may have to break out my wedding dress one of these days, too. 🙂

  4. Laurie Duncan says:

    I’m not big on April Fools either, but I do think the dress is lovely. I almost bought a white dress yesterday, but I just don’t thing wearing all white suits me. I do love a white skirt, top or pants; or a fun white purse. 🙂

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Thank you so much, Laurie! Haha, glad I’m then only one who is not so big a fan of April Fools. 😉 I am a huge fan of white bottoms too…I love white skirts and white pants. 🙂 White can certainly be a fun color too. 🙂

  5. I like white dresses. I think white dresses can be very summery, and I like to put a nice coloured cardigan with it.
    About this dress – it is a bit sexy 😉 And I think you look fantastic in it.
    Hope you’re having a good weekend.
    Much love,

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Thank you so much, Mona! Pairing them with a coloured cardigan would be perfect. 🙂 I hope you are having a good weekend too! Much love!

      Thanks! I hope you have an awesome weekend too, Ela!

  7. Carlyn Brody says:

    I think you look lovely. The outfit is perfect for weddings, church and race wear. I love April Fools day, it is my favourite holiday. I love it for the reason why you don’t like it. It’s the one day when I can tell an outrageous lie, have people freak out and then yell April fools.

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Thank you so much, Carlyn! Haha, you are a better prankster than me! 🙂 What has been your favorite April Fools’ Day prank? 🙂

      1. Carlyn Brody says:

        I mostly tell outrageous lies on April Fools rather than physical pranks. One time, I “accidently” sent a message to my friends which was in fact intended for my fake 80 year billionaire boyfriend and the time I got a tattoo and when I announced koala meat would be sold in supermarkets. I do manage to fool most of my friends and family because I’m normally very honest except on April Fools.

        1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

          Haha! That is too funny, Carlyn! I really love the fake text message! I wish I could prank that well. 🙂

  8. Steve Holliday says:

    It certainly looks like a spring dress.

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Yep! Definitely a fun spring dress, if only the weather would get the memo about it being spring. Haha.

  9. Samantha Chic (@SamanthaCossick) says:

    Even if you didn’t get a chance to wear it long, this is still a super cute look! I also HATE April Fools Day – my anxiety just cannot deal with it! — SC at http://www.samanthachic.com

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Thank you so much, Samantha! Haha! And glad I’m not the only one who thinks April Fools Day is stressful! 😉

  10. Lee (@leethrifts) says:

    Ohhh, I love that dress! I’ve been thinking about trying out the mesh trend and I really love it in dress form! I really like white dresses but i’m so scared to wear them bc I know I’ll spill something

      Thank you so much, Lee! I like the mesh trend a lot better in dress form too. 🙂 Haha, and oh I am really good at staining white clothes too! Oxiclean stain stick is my best friend, haha.
