The White Jean Debate

May 1, 2015

The white jean debate. I’m not talking about whether or not it’s okay to wear them before Labor Day. I’m over that. I mean whether or not to wear them at all. In the blogging world, they seem to be all the rage. I love how everyone is wearing them. They look so great with colored shirts I don’t like as much with regular denim (cobalt, I’m talking to you). But for the life of me, I could not find a pair I liked. Every time I tried them on, they were either too thin (not a good look), or I just didn’t feel like they were flattering.  I tried on the same pairs that look so great on my fellow blogging friends and looked like a fool. So I kept wondering, to white jean or not to white jean. I finally ordered this pair from Nordstrom that I had seen on some of my blogger favorites like Eat Pray Wear Love and Love Lenore as well as Hello Fashion. The jury is still out. What do you all think? Have you found a pair you like or even thought about it?

Among other highly important things, I need your help. We are headed to the beach soon (hooray!), and I want to switch out my sunglasses through Ditto’s endless Eyewear Program for a beachy pair. That’s the best part about this whole thing, you can have a pair of designer sunglasses for any occasion! I’ve narrowed it down to seven pairs. Don’t laugh. It’s not nice.

  1. Funky Aviators
  2. Black Mirrored
  3. Sweet Silver
  4. Cool Clear
  5. I really just want these
  6. Blue Wayfarers 
  7. Mirrored Ray-Bans

Help me! Which should I pick? Don’t forget, you can sign up for the program here and get your first month FREE! It’s just $19/month after that and you can cancel at any time.

Lastly, if you are looking for Mother’s Day gift ideas, I had the pleasure of doing a guest post for DearMissJ. I shared some of my favorites for all the amazing moms out there including their beautiful Kate Pearl Necklace I am wearing today. I remember when my grandmother gave me a pearl necklace for Christmas. As a girl, I remember feeling like I had made it. I was one of the women. There is just something special and classic about pearls.

    I had the SAME problem with white pants last summer. I wanted them to be distressed and couldn’t find anything that looked right AND wasn’t see through. I finally found a pair of Dittos brand (ironic because you mention Dittos sunglass services, ha!) that I feel in love with. The one’s you found look fab on you, Amy Ann! I also say go with the Oyster sunglasses. So cute!

    XO, Jaime

    I’m not a fan of pants in general so there is no debate in my field regarding that, but they look awesome on you!

    Those jeans are so cute on you! As for the sunglasses, as much as I love my aviators, I’m going with #5 or #6! Have a great weekend Amy Ann!

    Don’t worry, you completely rock those white jeans. I have yet to find a pair of white jeans that suit me, but I’m all for white bottoms! For the sunnies, 5 or 7!

    Like I said on Insta, love the jeans on you! And thank you for the shoutout too – so sweet 🙂
    If you want a solid white pair, I’m thinking about getting these:
    The price is pretty good and I’ve seen them on a couple of bloggers and thought they were really flattering. I’ll let you know if I try them 🙂

    Also, I vote for 3, 4 or 5 on the sunnies! I know that doesn’t exactly help, but that kind of narrows it down haha.

      Oh I like that pair! If you get them, let me know what you think. Thanks for the sunnies help. 🙂

    This color combo is amazing! I love those white jeans and the red top. The leopard is the perfect addition! I don’t care about any white rule anymore. I’ve been wearing my white denim on repeat since the weather is finally getting nicer! Have a great weekend!

    I love these white jeans on you! The raw hem is so fun and the distressing makes them not so serious. Work ’em girl! 🙂

    White jeans are awesome and really lighten up a look, but it’s so hard finding the right pair! Love these on you!

    i love white jeans & love how you styled them here. i love the distressed knees and actually think that one of my good friends has the same pair from Nordy’s. i feel that for white denim is an easy item in their closet to just throw on & go in the summer. its a MUST!

    I love to see white jeans, but I’m to picky about them. I’m still looking for the perfect pair of skinny white jeans.
    These are super flattering on you and I love how you picked the bright jumper and the print purse!
    Have a great weekend!
