wearing white before memorial day #1 / white jeans

i've unfortunately grown out of my favorite white jeans and shorts from last summer (thankyouverymuch, tex-mex and bbq) so was keeping an eye out for those two items in particular during a trip to the mall on saturday. new york and co was having a massive sale (as usual) and everything was an additional 15% off. i hit the jackpot and walked out with two pairs of white shorts and a pair of white jeans for about $50. unfortunately the pricing on the website isn't reflective of the in-store sales so i reco popping in.

i'm all about wearing white before and after the "allowed summer months." i simply avoid wearing them with beachy or summery pairings or accessories. it's all about dark blues, purples, browns and black.

i forgot to take a photo, but i rocked the white jeans saturday night for a date with my hubs. they were super comf and looked awesome with a fuschia club monaco silk racerback tunic tank and brown vintage (ha, four years old) michael kors newton wedges. note to self...start taking photos of outfits. it'll be my late new year's resolution.

above: skinny ankle jean, optic white wash, $36.50 (i got them on sale for $19.99 plus an additional 15% off)

above: metallic brocade gramercy short, $34.95 (i got them on sale for $19.95 plus an additional 15% off). they remind me of a much more expensive pair i ogled over in j.crew last summer.

above: fine stripe gramercy shorts in white, $34.95 (i got them on sale for $19.95 plus an additional 15% off)

I think that rule can be broken in Austin-- once the thermometer hits 80 white is a go!
