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 wereย flattering. ย 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.ย 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 Wayfarersย 
  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 am so glad they re-stocked that leopard clutch! What took them so long?? Haha. I am not sure why you’re reluctant about the white skinnies because they look perfect on you! I am no help on the sunglasses…I really have to see them on your face to decide. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I agree! That clutch is a major seller. I am always checking to see if they re-stocked it so I can link to it. I still can’t decide on the sunglasses…

      #5 is my favorite too! Thanks for the help! I think I am going to go with clear for the beach (just for fun), and then swap them for #5 when I get back. I love that I can do that with this program. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The coral with white and leopard is a dream! I love white jeans on other people but dont think I ever would with my celtic skin! x

    I actually don’t own any white jeans BUT I do own quite a few white skirts! To be honest, it’s because I haven’t found a pair of white jeans that aren’t completely not see through yet. But skirts have pretty intense lining, so I’ve found quite a few that are 100% NOT see through haha. I love these jeans on you though! The whole outfit is simple and elegant. Really beautiful necklace.

    I really think you can pull them off! I definitely know what you mean about white jeans. I had to try on a lot and then more and more. I think I found a pair I like. But really white jean shopping is like a whole like a whole new beast of it’s own!
