All-White Outfit with Serenity Blue

An all-white outfit might sound intimating, but it is the perfect fresh look for summer.

An all-white outfit with a serenity blue handbag and nude wedge sandals is the perfect modern summer outfit for women over 40!

I was out with friends last weekend, and I was wearing white jeans (shocker!!!) They are one of my go-to summer wardrobe staples, but I was surprised how many women sitting around the dinner table swore they never wear white jeans (or even white tops) because they’re afraid of staining them.

I am about the most clumsy person alive, and I probably wear a piece of white clothing five times a week during the summertime. Like any other color, stains wash out of white. Don’t be afraid of white!!! I can’t imagine my wardrobe without it.

An all-white outfit might with a pop of serenity blue is the perfect modern summer outfit for women over 40.

I actually put this outfit together to feature this Kate Spade bag that was sent to me from the brand for a sponsored post promoting their summer line, and I liked it so much, I decided to do a dedicated post with it as well. It’s not an outfit I’ll wear often, but when I want something fresh and fun and different for a summer evening out, I’ll totally put these pieces together.

This Crinkle Gauze Top by Splendid is a little fancier than a t-shirt but still has a casual vibe. It looks good with blue jeans, jean shorts, and bright or pastel colored jeans. It also comes in a pale pink if you’re part of the anti-white brigade. I like the way the neckline dips into a V in the back as well as the front. Plus the cuffed sleeves and center seams add interest.

This Splendid Gauze Crinkle Tie Front Top is the perfect light white top for summertime!

I accessorized with this mini statement necklace from Stella & Dot. I liked how the blues picked up the blue from the purse. Then I just added silver hoops and a silver link bracelet.

My favorite neutral wedge sandals complete the look. I didn’t want anything to distract from the outfit, and I love how they visually elongate the leg, especially when wearing cropped pants.
