Jan 24th, White Jeans in Winter

DSCN4099DSCN4100Here is another old photo I found- I looked back through old posts and couldn’t find it, so I wonder if I took the picture and never used it?

I bought these white cropped skinny jeans at J Crew a while ago. Lots of people are afraid to wear white after Labor Day- but personally, I love it! From everything I have read, that is an old, outdated rule that you do not have to follow!

White jeans are easy to wear because they go with anything- but I really love pairing them with neutrals.

In this picture I chose a brown tank and this cute cropped trench coat. To tie it all together I wore a Tiger’s eye necklace (from Forever 21- great place for cheap trendy jewelry) and my favorite leopard belt (from Target).

April 20th, Girl’s Night Out


I’m playing tennis today, so instead of showing my tennis skirt, I decided to show you what I wore the other night for a Girl’s Night Out!

I decided to pair my white toothpick jeans with a bright pink top.

However, the look on the right is not what I had in mind.

While I love the cute shoes and the pants- the pink collared shirt is more appropriate for a round of golf than a round of drinks!

Honestly, it’s very hard to make this type of shirt look stylish.

On the left I have replaced the golf shirt with this cute salmon colored top. This shirt is so much cuter than the one on the right- not only is the color fabulous- but it has great details. The 3/4 sleeves, the asymmetrical hemline, the v neck- all make for an interesting shirt.

To complete my ‘rule of 3’ I’ve threw on a turquoise necklace and a stack of bracelets.  For shoes I chose these cute snakeskin wedges that I bought at Marshalls last summer.

This outfit definitely says 'spring!'- even if it's only 45 degrees out! And, yes- my feet were a little cold. Oh well...

One thing I want to mention is that when my sister was here she had a gorgeous top in almost the same color- but her’s was Diane Von Furstenberg and was probably around $200! Yikes!

I’m too cheap (and poor) to spend that kind of cash on one top- so this shirt is a great alternative. It is from Point Of View section in Nordstrom and cost around $60.

Below is Kara’s pricey top! Can you tell the difference?

Kara's top is made of silk- so a much nicer fabric, but otherwise, it's pretty similar to mine.

Thanks so much to everyone who commented on my ‘ugly’ blouse from yesterday. I loved hearing everyone’s feedback- you all had some great suggestions!

That being said- I just didn’t feel very cute in the top- so it will go in the donation pile. My theory is I should feel great everyday- and this top didn’t make me feel great! Oh well… I tried. This is definitely a learning process for me too!
