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.

Ah sunglasses how I love thee so. Some people can’t have enough phone cases, others lipglosses but for me it’s sunglasses. I have always loved sunglasses, even as a little girl I remember flocking to the sunglass section while my mom shopped at Mandee (hey ya dating myself here). Sunglasses are such a fun way to play around with your look. Not to mention they are used for so much more than blotting out the sun. Wake up late and have no time for make-up? Boom sunglasses. Want people to stay away from you in the store? Boom sunglasses? Hungover and have to look presentable? Boom sunglasses. There are so many affordable options that I have little to no buyers remorse when purchasing sunnies. I can’t choose a favorite because I go through phases. One minute I’m all about oversized, the next it’s cat-eye and wham heart-shaped. After doing some research I learned that certain face shapes are flattered by certain sunglasses. I’m not sure how much I buy into this but here’s what I have picked up along the way.
Round: Best glasses are rectangle, square and shield type glasses.
Square: Best glasses round, aviators, oval or circular curves.
Oval: You guys luck out. Pretty much any shape is flattering.
Heart: Best glasses are cat-eye, avatar, shield or rimless glasses.
Listen, I tend to pick glasses that I’m drawn to and I am sure I look silly in some of my sunnies. The real question is, do I care? Nope 😉 I have linked some of my favorite sunnies that all happen to be priced just right. Take a look and here’s to a lot of sunny days ahead!
Last year I skipped over purchasing sandals since well we weren’t going anywhere. This year I’ve made up for it and then some 🙂 Most of my sandals have used up their miles and therefore were ready to be replaced. When shopping for sandals I like to play around with different styles and colors. Square toe seems to be making a big statement this year. I like the design because they are extremely comfortable and add a little sophistication to any outfit. I love any kind of sandal with a little metallic color (these are my pick) or prints. For example, I snagged these snake print colorful sandals the other day. I mean you can’t beat the price point. Plus metallic sandals can easily dress up any outfit. I mostly look for cute, flat everyday sandals but I did need to add a pair of sandals with a heel to my collection and these are fantastic. Plus they are very comfortable, I wore them every evening out on our trip to Florida last month. In fact, I loved them so much I bought them in two colors. Having a sandal to slip on and off my the pool was a must for me. I picked these slides but these are similar and at a better price point. Most of the sandals I own have lasted many years and I see all of these doing the same.
I have rounded up all of them in one place here. Thanks for reading!
I know I know A swimsuit post in February? Listen, we are about to get what feels like our 10th snow storm of the season tomorrow and well…I’m over it. I shouldn’t be since I live in the north east but I am. I enjoy snow up until the end of December when the holiday season is over. After that I feel like spring should magically appear. Ah, wishful thinking. We just booked our first family vacation since 2019. We skipped last year because we had little Asher and I was worried with the pandemic. Needless to say, I am excited! Which means I’m planing all my day time outfits aka bathing suits and cover-ups!
Ok let’s talk swimsuits. Not a favorite topic of some but you need at least one. Since I had children I‘ve gravitated towards high waisted bikini bottoms and one piece suits. Mainly because I can run around, chase them and not have to worry about something coming out of place. I also love these styles because they give the wearer a nice shape. Let’s be honest these are just more practical for the town pool or my backyard. I mean if I were going to Bora Bora I would certainly wear a tiny bikini and not give a damn because I was in paradise.
The sad truth is these suits will be sold out or back ordered very soon. They are all priced perfectly. The last thing I want to do is spend $200 on a bathing suit only to have my kid spill part of his fire cracker ice pop on it. No thank you. I personally own four of these suits and love them. The quality is great and you can’t beat the prices or fast shipping. So grab a suit before they’re gone and don’t forget to reapply your sunscreen.
Thanks for reading and take a look at all of my picks here.
