Greetings and happy hump day! I’m not one to put my white jeans away after Labor Day, but I do tend to get tired of them during the summer months and like to give them a rest for a while.
Now that the holidays are over, I’ve been meaning to get them out and wear them again, but I keep forgetting about them. Old habits die hard, I guess.
I finally dug them out last weekend and paired them with this lilac sweater and taupe ankle boots for a somewhat unexpected winter dressed-up casual outfit — you know, my favorite kind. This is the sort of thing I’d wear to meet a friend for coffee or for a solo trip to the mall.
These booties are a great neutral color for pairing with white jeans. I like that there isn’t a stark contrast so they keep a long lean leg line. They’re sold out, but this pair is a similar color and super cute as well. They’re also 50% off!!!
Around this time of year, I get tired of the bold and dark colors I typically gravitate to and start to crave lights and brights. I must not be the only one because the retailers seem to be filling their shelves with pastels and light neutrals right now.
When I saw this cozy mock neck sweater in this gorgeous pastel shade of purple, I decided it must become a part of my winter wardrobe! It’s super soft and cozy — as the name suggests, and it’s such a pretty color. Plus it’s only $49.
I’m wearing the small, but I can see how a medium might give a more relaxed look, and it would be longer too. It just depends on what you like.
Before someone says something, yes, I know that this sweater is boxy and not the most flattering shape for my figure, but sometimes cozy trumps curvy. Plus it looks really nice layered under my new grey cocoon coat!
This coat was a Christmas gift from my mom, and I have the size 6 for reference. I’d say it runs a little big. It has been on sale, but it’s not at the moment. Overall I really like it, although it’s not as warm as some. It’s fine for most winter weather, but when it dips below 25, I go for my big puffy parka or the Andrew Marc paloma coat. I have a Calvin Klein long quilted puffer similar to this one that I wear on the coldest of days (and nights.) I got it on sale at Lord & Taylor many moons ago, and it still looks like new.
Anyway, I digress!!!
My jeans are my trusty old Paige Verdugo ankle skinnies. I love these white jeans. They’re as thick as any pair I’ve found, and they have a great fit. Paige jeans don’t stretch, and they tend to run small, so you definitely want to keep that in mind when shopping for them. I actually sized up to a 30 in these white ones, and I typically wear 29 in Paige. A good similar for less option is this pair of modern skinny jeans at LOFT.
I’m really loving the color palette of this outfit. It’s fresh and light and fun during this dreary time of year.
