White Denim

How to style white denim

This may be an unpopular opinion but I have always loved white jeans.  They make a comeback every few years and this summer is definitely one of them.  White jeans have certainly come a long way.  They are thicker for starters so that’s a win.  Honestly, who wants skintight wight jeans?  Not me. They also come in so many different styles you are bound to find one that works for you.   

I enjoy styling white jeans in the summer.  They add such a breezy vibe to any look.  They can be worn so many ways from casual to more dressed up. Most restaurants are up to date with current fashion trends which means they are more accepting with their dress code. So ripped jeans aren’t as taboo as they once were.  The jeans I’m wearing can be paired with sandals, sneakers or heels for an edgy meets classy look.  I am on the cusp of what’s considered petite sizing.  I’m just under 5’4 for reference.  I will get petite length if I know I don’t want to wear heels but it also depends on the style. Because with skinny jeans I can get petite length and still wear heels but with bootcut or flare jeans I will get regular length as I want to style them with heels.  Jeans are a complicated beast. I also enjoy white denim shorts. Have you tried the white denim trend? If not, what are you waiting for? I’ve linked the ones I’m wearing as well as some other style options here. Thanks for reading 🖤

cozy kind of mood

It’s a snow day here in Jersey.  Which means I’ll be cooking and baking non stop because apparently all my family does is eat during snow storms. It also means cozy outfits all day.  Cozy chic is the look I’m going for from January to March. I’m like a bear but my hibernation is in the form of cozy outfits. I’ve found some of my favorite cozy pieces on amazon this year.  Sweaters to me are like coffee, you can’t have enough. I want two things out of my sweaters…comfort and stylish. I’m currently all cozied up in one of my favorite amazon sweaters, joggers and slippers. All of which have become a staple in my wardrobe.  So if you have a snow day today cozy on up with your phone and a coffee (or wine) and take a peek at these cozy pieces. 

Pajama sets that are perfect for Valentine’s Day or any day…

Spoiler Alert: This isn’t a lingerie post. I can barely tolerate underwire unless it’s absolutely necessary. Pajama sets? Now you’re speaking my language. I’ve been planning on writing a post of my favorites. What better time than Valentine’s Day? I get into my pajamas relatively early these days so a chic pair of PJ’s makes me feel better about it. Sundays are usually pajama days so if I can be cute and comfy I am all for it. I personally prefer long sleeve sets in the winter but I do know a lot of people who like to wear shorts to bed so I took the liberty of rounding up some really cute sets. Who says pajama sets can’t be sexy? I beg to differ, it’s all about the material. I have sets linked with crushed velvet, satin and of course soft as butter cotton. We can’t forget slippers and a super comfy blanket now can we?

Mom Jeans Reinvented…

Mom jeans, not a term usually associated with a positive image.  What comes to mind when I think of mom jeans? A woman in the 80’s with high high waisted light blue jeans that have a huge long zipper.  Not exactly an image of beauty. Never did I think I would wear high waisted jeans let alone high waisted mom jeans.  You have to remember, low rise jeans were all the rave when I was in high school and college.  Oh do I mean low. Think Christina Aguilera and Britany Spears low…You couldn’t get much lower than that without being X rated.   Fast forward a few plus years and all I own are high waisted denim.   I think I own maybe one pair of mid-rise jeans and that’s the lowest I will go these days.  I have mostly high waisted skinny jeans. However, I also have bell bottoms, but that’s a post for a different day 🙂  Can we be honest  for a minute? Very few jeans withstand the all day long test.  Jeans are second to bras with woman.  Come home rip off the bra and then the jeans.  Ah sweet comfort.   

I was always hesitant to try the mom jean trend that’s been creeping up these past few years.  Mainly because I’m on the shorter side (5’3”).  I was afraid they would make me look frumpy. I decided to take the plunge when Abercrombie was having one of their amazing denim sales and I’m glad I did!  They are officially one of me favorite pairs of jeans.  They are high waisted and have a relaxed fit throughout the legs.  Which makes them soooo much better to wear throughout the whole day. 

These have definitely become a staple in my wardrobe and I can’t wait to style them in all of the seasons.   Right now my favorite way to wear them is with a sweater or fitted turtle neck.  They would be cute with a cropped sweater as well.  So put on your best pair of mom jeans and go on with your bad self!
