Candy Colors

Happy Monday! Hope you had a fun weekend! August is almost coming to an end even though  Summer is still full on in the Chicago area. It dawned on me that fall is just around the corner, so I added white to my outfit, in an attempt to grasp on to what summer we have left.  But who am I kidding–I’ll probably be wearing white ensembles even after labor day. Lately, I love wearing my white denim for both work and play. I love this candy colored look which is perfect for work wear on a summer day.DSC04608

This is what I call my “sneaky” polished look – I am really just wearing a lightweight top & comfortable jeans, but when you add a structured blazer & pumps, it suddenly looks so much more pulled together.  It’s one of my favorite tricks for days when I’m running around with work – because it looks like you put more effort into it than you really did.  And you can easily remove the blazer for a casual vibe or for happy hour later. If you’re not a fan of heels, swap out the pumps for loafers.

White denim is undoubtedly a summer essential…but unfortunately, the perfect pair can be really hard to find.  I’ve tried on dozens of styles that were too thin & almost see-through (not a good look) and others that didn’t have the right balance of structure + stretch to them.  Many stay away from this shade of denim because they think it would not be flattering.  But, it’s true what they say – it is all about the fit!

This ankle length pair were a dream come true for me – a flawless fit, comfortable and surprisingly flattering.  They are a skinny look and I have been wearing them frequently ever since.  Here, I decided to share a look that I would wear for work.  If you have been afraid of white jeans in the past, I encourage you to give these a try – I promise you won’t be disappointed!
