The entire time I knew her, only once did I ever see my grandmother wear anything other than a dress or a skirt. She embodied a timeless and classic femininity that was just lovely. While, I’m definitely a more of a modern day woman when it comes to my style, I do feel especially feminine wearing white eyelet.
I realize the word feminine conjures up so many strong feelings of emotion and differing opinions about what a woman should or shouldn’t be in today’s world.
But I think its important for women to know they can be anything … mothers, daughters, athletes, activists, wives, CEO’s, politicians, surgeons, creatives, scientists, writers … and so much more.
Because true femininity is not defined by a role but by your heart … it’s the essence of who you are.
Femininity is the inner beauty you were created to uniquely offer to this world.
And it looks different for each woman.
While femininity is definitely who you are on the inside, I do love to incorporate small outwardly things into my everyday life that personally make me feel more feminine … fresh flowers, candles, bubble baths, Taylor Swift music, make up, and beautiful, feminine pieces into my wardrobe such as this stunning white eyelet dress from Free People.
I love everything about this dress.
From the simple eyelet lace detail to the off the shoulder style, its absolutely perfect.
It’s light weight, yet thick enough you don’t see through it.
It’s fitted without being too tight.
It’s midi length makes it appropriate for a variety of occasions.
This dress is simple and delicate and soft and pretty.
To me, it’s perfectly feminine.
I paired this perfectly feminine white eyelet dress with some dainty gold jewelry, a loose braid, and some killer cork heels from Schutz (which are on sale right now!!!).
I’ve linked everything below, as well as, some of my top white eyelet picks for this summer if you’re looking to incorporate this feminine style into your wardrobe.

Femininity is not just lipstick, stylish hairdos, and trendy clothes. It is the divine adornment of humanity. It finds expression in your qualities of your capacity to love, your spirituality, delicacy, radiance, sensitivity, creativity, charm, graciousness, gentleness, dignity, and quiet strength. It manifests differently in each girl or woman, but each of you possesses it. Femininity is part of your inner beauty.” -James E. Faust
