They say you can't/shouldn't wear white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day. Such an out-dated rule...and one I've never been good at following. Once it's warm enough, I'm all about the head-to-toe white looks and especially gravitate towards white dresses. Being that the warm weather hits Dallas in early spring, I've been wearing my fave white frocks for a few weeks now...and this Ojai Caftan by MIRTH has been on repeat.
The best thing about wearing all white – besides the fact that it always looks so crisp, clean, and fresh – is that it creates an ideal canvas for layering colorful, bold and or statement-making accessories. I’ve worn the Ojai with both wedges and sandals but really like how it looks styled with my spring Sabahs (the Thassos Tea is such a pretty, icy aqua!). Normally I wouldn’t add more color to this look but the shoes are almost a neutral and they go perfectly with my Pom Bon earrings from The Loveliest.
I should probably note that out of all my MIRTH caftans (and I have quite the collection), the Ojai is one of the lightest and most breezy of the bunch. It’s a little hard to see in the photos but the 100% cotton handloomed fabric (re: so, incredibly soft and light) has a check pattern that gives it some great dimension. Details like the braided rope around the neckline, tiny tassels, and tie sleeves just make it even more special.
