While we usually associate knits with cold weather, lightweight summer knits are actually a favourite clothing item of mine. I'm talking crochet, pointelle, cable, basically any knit with an open pattern. Take this dress by Ronny Kobo for instance, simple in it's design yet so lovely in it's textural details. The drop waist hem gives it a playful edge while the pointelle fabric gives the dress a good weight resulting in a lovely form and drape. All the qualities one looks for in the perfect little white dress.

These photos were taken not too long ago in sunny Australia. Right now a snow storm is slowly setting in as I type up this post. I dare say, I feel like I'm cheating on winter by posting such fond warm weathered memories. Who else is looking forward to a blue skies and sun?
