White Skinny Jeans

It was unseasonably warm here last week (80+ degrees), and I enjoyed bringing out some spring/summer clothes. To me, white jeans say spring/summer more than most other clothes (not that you can’t wear white pants year round; there are fabulous examples everywhere).

I especially love pairing white jeans with striped tops. This time, I decided to pair the jeans with a thin, blue/white vertically striped blouse. I bought the blouse last year on super clearance at Banana Republic right before my summer Germany trip. It ended being the piece of clothing I wore by far the most. It’s comfortable, doesn’t wrinkle, and is easy to wash (in a sink if need be) and dry. I was traveling back and forth between my hometown and the rehab center where my dad was staying. Since I took public transportation, I tried to take as little as possible, and I pretty much lived in the blouse…

I always like wearing a turquoise necklace with blue and white.

I also carried my new(wish) light pink Rebecca Minkoff Medium MAB bag; I’m still in love with it.

I enjoyed wearing my brown sandals, too. They have a higher heel than I normally wear (you can’t really see it in the photo as it disappears in the grass), but they are comfortable. Nevertheless, we ended up going on a 4-mile walk on the day I wore them (at the end on a non-paved trail), and I wished at that point I had worn different shoes...

Outfit Details
Jeans: Yummie Skinny Jeans (since I liked the blue Yummie super skinny jeans so much, I decided to order the white skinny jeans as well when they were on sale)
Blouse: Banana Republic old (I like this, this, and this)
Shoes: Born old (I really like these but these look comfortable)
Necklace: old (I like this, this, and this)
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff MAB in rose (same bag in white, brown, and black)



Questions: What are you looking forward to wearing most in spring? What colors are you looking to add to your wardrobe/or wear again? 

Be well,
Andrea

      It actually felt a bit too much... It is still winter after all... :-)

  7. I love the jeans but I disagree that you can wear white pants all year round. It depends on where you live. Here in Winter almost no one wears white pants. For me it's Summer clothing.

    Spring is still a bit away, I haven't really thought about my Spring/Summer wardrobe. Usually when I put away my Winter clothes and replace them with my Summer clothes I look what I still have and what I need.

    1. Hi Fran, I agree that where you live can influence if you will wear white pants year round.

      I personally love white pants with brown boots and a winter white cozy sweater. A lot of bloggers who live in "snowy climates" have been wearing a variation of this combo lately, and in my opinion it looks great!

      But I agree that it's much less likely that you'll wear white pants when no one else around you is wearing them... Also, getting them dirty may be another concern...

  8. 80+! I would have worn a bikini and nothing else :-). Sounds just wonderful. Denmark is just rain and wind. Lovely outfit - visiting from Not Dressed as Lamb.

  9. The white jeans look fabulous on you and I love the way you've styled them with the striped blouse, turquoise jewelry and your new RM bag! Don't you love it when you're traveling and you've packed that one piece that you just want to wear again and again? It makes things so simple (in the outfit department at least).

  11. Oh, I'll take your weather any day. We think too much alike, my white jeans are always the first item I get out when the weather first feels like spring. And, yes, as you said it's perfectly ok to wear them year round, I just don't (I should stop this silly rule). You look fabulous, as always.

  14. I have a pair of white capri skinnies and I wear them with tall boots and they look like white jeans :) I really love the white skinnies with that b/w striped top! I need to try mine with a striped top now! Thanks for the inspiration!

  16. Can totally see why you love wearing that shirt. Its a cool classic with those jeans. I love shopping at BR. And the bag is just wonderful. I bet its one of those items that make you smile every time you are using it? Do sometimes feel the leather? ;-) I do. Because I love the bag sooo much. Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts. 80 degrees is a treat. In San Diego we used to go swimming in the pool in January when it was around 70 which was nice. xo, Sabina

    1. Yes, whenever I see the bag it brings a smile to my face! :-) It's funny because I wasn't much of a "bag person" until recently...

      It's not quite as warm anymore but still in the mid to upper 70s. San Diego weather is absolutely perfect I think!

  26. Here's the thing, Andrea, up until a fortnight ago, I've never owned a single pair of white anything below the waist. Absolutely nothing. That said, I finally plucked up my courage and checked out a pair of cropped white skinnies which made their way to my mailbox a little while back. I still haven't taken them out of the plastic wrapping yet LOL but I will. I'll take inspiration from you :) happy weekend!!
