Winter White Denim...

For ages we have been hearing that wearing white after Labor Day is a total a fashion faux pas. But really? Who came up with this cray cray rule?! A couple theories suggest that because white reflects light and heat, wearing white would make you cooler in winter, and thus should be avoided. But others suggest the rule stems from a class issue. Well, I'm not a fan of either rule and rules are made to be broken! Cut to...White Denim in Winter challenge, an idea conjured up by the fab Carrie from This Free Bird. So...myself and 4 other fabulous bloggeristas are on the white denim train today...woop woop!

Oh my gosh YES!! I am in freaking love with both of them. Can I just say that I really respect that you wear your shoes more than once? It just goes to show that you're a real person!! (vs what I'm not sure, but anyway).

Killer outfits. I think I need to gather my wits and channel that first look espesh. NICOLE! the stripes beneath the light denim jacket + the white and the hat?? d-i-e.

I've never been a huge fan of white bottoms. I don't know why, but I think you may have convince me to try them. ;)

Love the shoes by the way.

Ashley said...

You look great! I'm especially in love with the first pair of pants...I wish I'd look that good in something similar! I'd wear white in the winter, but I'm afraid I'd blend right in with the snow!

LyddieGal said...

I am crazy over your first look - the nude wedges are making me swoon!!

Chic on the Cheap

TheChambrayCountess said...

Oooh, I like both styles. And there is nothing wrong with white after labor day, it's like demanding you match your nails to your purse to your shoes!
Also, I own that same belt in the second outfit and wear it waaaay too often. It goes with everything!

Valerie said...

I agree, rules were meant to be broken! I LOVE both of your outfits- so chic and classic. I'm linking up for tomorrow's winter white!

Natalie Lord said...

LOVE everything about the first look! You look very fab! I want white skinnies SOOOO badly! They are on my must-buy list. Too bad this 30 x 30 remix I'm doing doesn't allow shopping for the month. Oh, the pain :)

Annie said...

YES! I love it - I'm all for white year round!!
p.s. so glad you are enjoying the bars :)
