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 wereΒ flattering. Β 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.Β 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 WayfarersΒ 
  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 have to say that for the longest time IO didn’t think I can pull white jeans off. Now, however…I love them and have several pairs.

    I love the look of white jeans year round. I think it just depends what you pair them with. I love yours with the bright red blouse!

    Personally, I don’t wear white jeans. The last time I wore it was in high school around 5 or 6 years ago. The reason I don’t wear it is because I’m a bit careless and I end up getting stains on my white jeans πŸ˜€ but sometimes I’m tempted to wear it again because I find it very chic on other girls like you πŸ™‚

      I got something on mine within 5 minutes of putting them on the first time. LOL

    I think white jeans are a must-have. They’re the ideal bottoms for nights out (especially on chillier spring/summer nights) and are so comfortable! I wear mine all the time!

    These white jeans look amazing on you, so YES to white! I’m a huge fan of white denim, and have heard people rave great things about these Topshop jeans. I’ll probably pick up a pair myself. Have a great time at the beach, I always love aviators for a beach look, so my votes on the mirrored Ray Bans.

    I’m obsessed with white jeans, but like you-I struggle with finding a pair that isn’t too thin or thick! It’s a careful balance πŸ™‚

      It really is hard to find the right pair. Regular jeans are hard enough!

    There is no debate in my mind! I love my white denim, I live in them all year long! sometimes I have to stop myself from wearing them so much!! these look great on you, and I love the ripped look.
