Let’s talk white denim, because it’s summer time and you’ve got the weekend on your mind. White jeans simplify packing for any summer (or for me, winter) get away – because I’m still a proud supporter of winter whites. Bur more undeniably, white jeans are to summer as leather pants are to winter. They are just so un-annoyingly obvious. But it goes beyond that, they are a go to staple that will never be ruined for me. They have earned their spot at the cool kids table and deserve to be a favorite in the rotation that is your summer wardrobe. When packing for a weekend away between the months of May and September white jeans are unquestionably included. They fall somewhere between a toothbrush and sunscreen on the necessary section of the packing list.
Recently however, I’ve been reminding myself to wear my white jeans with things other than the ever present striped T-shirt. Not that I don’t adore the white jean/striped tee combo – I grew up in New England for crying out loud. But there are so many more opportunities for white denim to really shine. Much like with this layered lace crop and silk ruffle tank look back to bejeweled sandals that have somehow nailed the cool-girly-girl aesthetic.
Currently though, I’m in the market for a cropped white flare because I think that would be rad as all geddyup. I’m envisioning: cropped white flare, uber-fem crop top, platform espadrilles (not to be confused with wedge espadrilles – huge difference, for realz), kimono jacket and bracelets layered up to my elbows. BOOM.
TGIF and happy packing!
