White Out


Anyone that knows me knows that I love white bottoms, tops, dresses, cardigans, coats, blazers and handbags. If an article of clothing is white then I’m that much more likely to give it a shot. I love how crisp and clean it looks and I especially love to wear white as a base. Anyway, I digress but my point is that I was so excited when the white pencil skirt (gifted from Annie) arrived in the mail that I wanted to try it on for size.

Since I like white so much of course I ended up pairing it with a white polka dot blouse. Unfortunately, the blouse is a bit wide so it didn’t look very neat tucked in to the skirt. I proceeded to throw on a few of my newly acquired blazers and coats and I was quite pleased with all three looks. Now I’m really looking forward to spring when I can wear white without worrying about dirty rain/snow water splattering on my outfits. I’m also looking forward to the extra hour of sunlight so losing an hour of sleep is totally worth it. Thank you daylight savings time!

    I adore all three looks on you! So happy that you like the skirt and it fits so well. Yay! Are you keeping both Zara jackets?

    Thanks Annie! <3 Also, thanks for advising me to return the BR version of the polka dot blouse.Yes, I am keeping both jackets. When I got home I realized that I had managed to buy the white tweed one without a tag on it and you know how Zara is about returns.Fortunately I love it so it really wasn't an issue. 🙂

    I like that long Zara coat and have been eyeballing it myself but I'm not really sure what to pare with it. I'm interested in seeing the different ways you end up wearing that piece, it's really pretty!

    It sure is! Hopefully I'll be able to give you some ideas. :)I saw it in black too (after the coral one came out) and I caught myself wishing the coat came out in white too! lol

    Thanks KC. I bought some white shorts today (surprised?) at AT factory today since my old ones from Express were not the whitest anymore and it was a plus that it was 50% off. I must have had a momentary brain lapse because I just remembered as I'm replying to you that I also have a pair by J.Crew but the AT pair has a decent inseam (hate short shorts).The pencil skirt Annie gave me gets wrinkled easily so it's not perfect but I agree that good white skirt is indeed hard to find. J.Crew has one that looks very promising. I have a linen white skirt from Theory from 2-3 years ago but it gets so wrinkly that it deters me from wearing it. If you know any secrets to staying wrinkle free when wearing linen please share. lol
