Happy Monday and hope you have had a great weekend. My daughter had an engagement party for a friend at our house Saturday night for 70 people. That is the most people I have ever had in my house and it was quite a party. I’m still recovering but it was so encouraging to see so many amazing young people!! I keep getting mixed up because it feels like August has an extra week or something. I am going to NYC and CT for the Labor Day holiday and it’s not time to pack yet but I’m ready for a change of scene. I have been sharing a series recently and today it’s on Shopping My Closet – My Fave White Jeans. I am having a hard time naming each blog because the first one “Shopping My Closet – Summer Whites” kind of describes all of them. I love these jeans from Mother; my first pair from this brand and since I don’t really wear ripped jeans the frayed detail on the bottom is my shout out to being cool. They have been my fave white jeans this summer and wish I had them in another color. I did get a 26 instead of 27 (my usual size). So I guess you need to size down which is always exciting. I love the high waist because that’s just the most comfortable these days!
SHOPPING MY CLOSET – MY FAVE WHITE JEANS
The bad thing about doing a post like Shopping My Closet – My Fave White Jeans is that obviously these items are not real new!! I love this white tunic (similar) I got last year in a Rachel Zoe Box of Style. I really didn’t wear it much last summer but it has been my favorite party and date night top this year. These fringe earrings (similar) are from the same box. Sometimes it’s fun to dress head to toe white, kind of refreshing. The tunic I’m wearing could also be a cover up but I’ve had fun wearing it as a top. Isn’t that kind of weird that something sits in your closet and then all of a sudden gets a second chance, New Life!!
I have had so much fun with these Schutz clear shoes with the cork heel. They absolutely disappear and can go with almost anything. They are super comfortable and the straps do not cut into your foot. I have loved wearing them. Also love this wicker bag(similar) from J.McLaughlin because it goes with everything and it’s a great neutral to balance the all white. I love wearing a stack of bracelets. The cuff is one I found at our hotel boutique in Guatemala and the beaded bracelets are collected. If you have some pretty bracelets you can stack them up on your right arm or add them to your watch! Not a new trend but a collection of things you love is always a fun signature accessory to wear.
NEUTRAL ACCESSORIES WITH ALL WHITE
I think tonal dressing is always a good idea. You can mix white and cream for a very calm yet sophisticated look. I think white is pretty any time of year and I will for sure be wearing white in New York and Westport Labor Day. I don’t know about you but I will be wearing white for quite a while. You can wear white jeans all year long and as I have said before, there are very few set in stone fashion rules anymore. Gone are the days (at least here in Texas) that you wear a new fall outfit to the first day of school (or work). It’s still hotter than heck here till almost Thanksgiving!! haha But seriously that’s just the truth.
I hope you have a great week and I hope you know how much I appreciate you for taking time to read my rambling on fashion. I hope you don’t mind my obsession with white right now!! It just feels cool and summer seems to last a long time. Plus a fun trip can take you to a beach or sunny local any time of year Don’t worry, I’ll get to fall fashion soon. XO Debby
