Fresh in White

white outfit, white jeans, wearing white in spring, how to wear white jeans It finally happened- I got my very own pair of white jeans! Actually, I picked these up a few weeks ago when I was adding a few spring pieces to my wardrobe, but I wore them for the first time this weekend. I had so many ideas for styling them, but the first look I wanted to try was an all-white one. Well, my sweater is more cream than white, but the general goal was to keep the look very neutral and simple.

As you know, they’ve been my go-to weekend shoe since I bought them. I always like to have some color on my nails and in these pictures I’m wearing the Revlon Parfumerie polish in Apricot Nectar. I was really excited to try these because of the pretty packaging and the fact that they’re scented. It did smell pretty nice and fruity while I was painting my nails, but that faded after a couple of hours. The color wasn’t exactly what I’d hoped for either- it looks more like a pale peach in the bottle, but on my nails it’s much brighter than I thought it would be. In sum, this didn’t quite meet my expectations, but I still think it’s a fun color that I’ll reach for from time to time.

I walked around for a while on Saturday and I couldn’t get over how nice it was outside. It felt like it everyone was out with their sunnies and dogs and I saw many people brunching al fresco. I walked around in the East Village for a bit, which is probably my favorite neighborhood in New York.

I stopped by the Muji in Cooper Square, which is so big and spacious. I didn’t really need anything, but of course I picked up a few little bits and bobs anyway. I also went to The Strand (aka paradise) and bought a few books. I was kind of in a spendy mood and had a large stack of books in my hand, but I reminded myself to be practical and narrowed it down three books to take home with me. Finally, I met up with Sarah for a fun little project I’m working on for the blog. I’m trying something new and I’m pretty excited about it. Hopefully it will be up here in the next couple of weeks!

  • Love the leopard slip-ons with the all-white outfit! So fresh and spring-like. :)

    I miss the Strand sooo much – I love that place! And I love your all white look with the leopard print.

    • The Strand is my favorite- I actually ended up going twice that day! Thanks Courtney :)

  • ‘Bout time, lady! This is a great look on you.

    Hope this week is a great one!

    • Thank you Hallie! Hope you’re having a great week too (p.s. The news of Glam being rebranded as Mode Media is pretty exciting!)

  • heather

    love this whole white look on you! So fresh. also love the pop of print from the slip on leopard print sneaks. I’m always so afraid to do a all white look b/c i’m such a mess lol


    • Thank you Heather! I was definitely afraid to spill something or brush against something dirty. You should have seen how carefully I was eating my lunch- it was comical!

  • I need a pair of shoes like that. Right now my weekend shoes are a pair of old, beat up Roxy boat shoes. These are so cute!

    • Thank you Emily! These were a steal at $15 from H&M. I’m really considering going back and buying another pair.

  • I love this all-white look! I know I don’t think I could pull off white jeans, but I would love to find a white lace skirt!

    • Thank you Sara! A white lace skirt sounds lovely! I’ve actually been searching for a white lace tee/top.

  • Oh I love all white looks! You look so great. And those leopard slip-ons are perfect for this.

  • Allie Mackin

    No I LOVE your Leopard print slip ons and love this whole look. I have a pair of white jeans but not a white pull over…I am inspired to get one now.

    • Haha, yay, glad you’re not tired of seeing these sneakers on the blog! I love my oversized white/cream pullover- it was definitely one of my best winter purchases (although I’m still wearing it because it’s been so cool out!).

  • I’m wearing a similar outfit today! love white on white, makes me feel so fresh and clean!

    • Thanks Natalie! Same- I felt very spring appropriate in this outfit :)

  • Jenmarie

    I love the look of white but I rarely buy it because I don’t feel those pieces last as long. But I really do love your all white look :) Haha, I talk about the weather all the time too! It’s totally fine :)

    • You’re right, it’s harder to keep white pieces pristine. I’ve got several wears out of my sweater and a couple out of my jeans- so far, so good :)
      Haha- glad I’m not the only one who goes on and on about the weather! It plays such a big factor in what I wear and my mood.

    • Thank you Marianna :)

  • It’s time, girl! Congrats on your white denim! I, too, just bought a pair of light colored denim (like a washed light blue-white). I don’t wear light denim, as I’m scared to sit on something dirty, but here we go! :) Great look, and what a beautiful day!!

    • Thank you lady! Oh, loving the sound of your light blue jeans- hope you’ll do a little instagram or something when you wear them :)
