I don't do weekly themes, but it seems as if this week's was 'how to wear white in the winter' (as also seen on Tuesday). I'm using the term 'winter' loosely here, though, because although it's most definitely, technically winter, this week felt like late spring! Here in Pittsburgh, we have had nothing but warm temps (in the 60s and even 70s!) and have had way more sun than usual. And I am SO not complaining. I made sure to soak it up and enjoy every second of it! Even today is absolutely gorgeous and warm so I am going to meet some friends later for outdoor happy hour. If you're from Pittsburgh you know how insanely unusal sitting outside in February really is!
Anyway, I'm big on wearing white year round. It's crisp and an easy neutral. Today I'm sharing how to 'winterize' your white jeans. Basically, if you swapped out the booties for sandals, this would totally work in June, but since I added a darker color, suede bootie, this really tones down the summer vibe and makes it much more seasonably appropriate.
And did I mention these booties are gorgeous and totally leg lengthening and are under $60 (use code BYEFEBRUARY to get $10 off your order). Such a good price for the quality (they're actually sold at a ton of different retailers, but this is the least pricey available!!). Buy now, wear now or even just save for next fall! They're super comfortable, especially when you take into account the heel height. They come in many colors, too, so there's a shade that will definitely work well within your wardrobe! They run slightly small, so I would suggest sizing a up a half size!
Also, I've written about these jeans a million times in past posts, but now that spring/summer is coming, if you don't have a great pair of white pants, these should be your first pick! They are entirely opaque, the pockets don't show through and the fit is amazing. They hit right at the ankle and have a bit of stretch but not too much that they're baggy by the end of the day! I've also been able to get any and every stain out of them with ease, too. They run true to size. I'm wearing a size 27, which is my typical jean size!
And lastly, because it's Friday and you've all got things to do (hopefully fun things!!), this striped shirt is currently on sale under $50. It's a great update on your typical classic shirt. It's ever so slighty cropped and the slight flare of the sleeves really bring it into 2017!
