It took me a while to get used to wearing white jeans before memorial day, but now they’ve become a spring staple. They instantly make any outfit look a little dressier, which is great now that I can wear jeans to work every day. They also go with just about every color. Paired with the right colors and textures, they’re like a little stepping stone between spring and summer. Here are a few ways I’m wearing my white jeans this spring.

1. With a jean jacket. White jeans and a jean jacket are timeless. I dressed them up for work with this striped tunic. White jeans tend to accentuate my hips, so I try to wear them with a longer layer.

2. With a denim/chambray shirt. You’ll hear me complaining about this a lot now that it’s warmer out, but my office is currently an air conditioned tundra. I still need to wear sweaters and long sleeves to stay warm. Luckily this long sleeve denim shirt looks great with white jeans and is the perfect complement to the bright pop of color from this scarf.
Similar Navy Blazer / Gap Sweater (Similar) / Madewell Jeans / Everlane Shoes / J.Crew Factory Necklace
3. With a blue blazer. Navy blue and white are always great complements. I elevated the look even more for a day in the office with a dark loafer and a gray sweater. I think white and gray look so classy together.
Guys, I’m loving crop flare pants! Is it just me? Sometimes I think my mind’s playing tricks on me because they’re kind of reminiscent of floods, but then I picture them 100 different ways for spring and summer and I’m sold. They’re definitely a departure from the skinny jeans that have been dominating my closet lately. I love how they show a little ankle and a little shoe. Right now I’m wearing them with sweaters. (By the way, I wish I bought a couple of these sweaters in different colors before they sold out!) But, once it gets a little warmer, I can’t wait to wear these with a t-shirt and Chuck Taylors or with a nice top for work. What are you crushing on for spring/summer?
I’m back from vacation. If you couldn’t tell from the posts last week, I was in Charleston, SC. The past 9 days were spent putting my feet in the surf, reading really good books (go buy Gone Girl this second), dancing with a naked baby (my boyfriends’ nephew) and having long conversations while eating amazing food. It’s always a little hard to come back to reality after vacation, but I found myself homesick for my little apartment.
Anywho, let’s get on to what I wore. Although I am a hot mess when it comes to packing (at least 4-5 items were not even worn), I did get a lot of use out of these white jeans. These are the two looks I came up with. One involving stripes (of course) and one white on white with a floral print scarf. I felt dressy yet laid-back in both outfits.
