An Ode to White Jeans: Part 2

I fell in love with white denim the moment I saw this old photo of my Mom. I always thought she looked SO stylish in this outfit. This picture was taken in the late 60’s or early 70’s. No later than September of ’71 because she sold that car before I was born. I’ve also loved Volkswagen Karmann Ghias forever too. I’d die to have a classic Karmann Ghia. DREAM CAR. That sound that the old Volkswagens make??? I die.

I’d totally wear her outfit today… That’s the great thing about wearing the classics. THEY NEVER GO OUT OF STYLE.

For today’s ode to white denim look I opted to wear a blue chambray shirt with orange accessories. I love this color combination. It absolutely screams summertime. It’s such a simple, yet classic look. Was this photo taken in the 60’s or the 20-teens? You decide. Timeless… Right?

An Ode to White Jeans

You guys…  We are hurtling towards fall. FAST. Holy moly, summer is almost over. How did that even happen? I swear it was just May. I’ve got about two weeks to wear my white jeans without any guilt or fear of getting the side-eye from an old lady at church.

I know that the “no white after Labor Day” rule has been thrown out, but I still have a hard time with it. I am a traditionalist, and was brought up by a southern mother, y’all. So, I’ll wear them with pride through Labor Day, and then likely put them away until next year. I live in Michigan, so it will probably snow in September anyway.

This week I’ll share a couple of my favorite color combinations when wearing white jeans. Black, white, and red is today’s color combo, which should be no shock to my long time readers. It’s always been one of my favorite combinations, and one I wear frequently.

A Dress for Work and Play: Part Two

Well, hi guys! I had originally intended on posting this last week, but I went on vacation with my family and couldn’t properly edit things on my iPad. So, I ate ice cream, played in tidal pools, shopped, and did touristy things instead. No regrets!

This is the second look that we shot wearing the J. Crew Cap-Sleeve Dress. As you can see, this is the more office appropriate look. (Here’s the “play” look.) I wore this to work before leaving on vacation and received so many compliments. This dress is such a great piece to dress up or down.

I always like to throw on a light cotton cardigan for the office. It keeps the outfit work appropriate and keeps you warm when the air conditioning is set to Arctic temperatures. WHY do they do that?
