White Denim for Spring

LOFT White Jeans LOFT White Jeans LOFT White JeansLOFT White Jeans LOFT White Jeans All White Summer OutfitI still can’t get over how amazing the weather was this weekend. It had me ready to skip over spring and get right to summer. As I mentioned in Sunday’s post, I had an unexpected blogging break so thank you for still following along even if the posts aren’t as consistent as I would hope.

Last week, Bill and I spent time in Georgia visiting family and going to two practice rounds at the Masters. Besides some crazy weather at the end of the trip and a few canceled and delayed flights, we had an amazing time. We enjoyed some incredible food, caught up with friends and family we hadn’t seen in awhile and enjoyed a few summer-like days.

This was one of the outfits I packed for our trip, but never had a chance to wear since we were on the move most of the time. We drove a lot and made quite a few more spur of the moment decisions than usual. I would’ve worn this look out to dinner since it cools down at night. I had been on the hunt for a pair of white jeans for quite some time. I bought a nicer, designer pair on sale in college, but I bought the wrong size, and every time I put them on, I hated the fit. Now that I’m older (and much wiser), I had been searching for a pair that wouldn’t break the bank because (1) I wanted to make sure I would actually wear them and (2) when I wear them, I will very likely spill on them.

I stopped in LOFT before the trip, and I pretty much bought anything that was white or blue. Not only are their current pieces super cute, but they’re also reasonably priced. Plus, they have a much larger in-store petite section, which I greatly appreciate. I ended up finding a regular pair of denim, and because they were cropped, they hit me at the right spot. In the photos, you’ll notice that they’re not a true skinny jean, but that is what I liked about them. I wanted a little more breathing space for my calves. That sounds super weird, but I don’t typically like my Irish-dancer legs in skin-tight white pants.

I added some pops of color to the otherwise all white outfit with one of my favorite bags and these fun earrings that come in a few colors. I also picked up these heeled sandals before our trip for under $65.

I’m already itching to get back to Georgia and visit Savannah. Have you ever been? Hopefully we can plan another trip soon.

  • This summer marked two years since my brother passed away, and we’re nearing a year since we lost my mom to cancer. I've been working on a post about how to help a grieving friend for a while now and finally hit publish tonight. Grief is messy, but I've been extremely fortunate to be surrounded by an incredible support system and wanted to share some of the things I've appreciated most (and let’s be honest, I’m probably forgetting something). I’m also feeling extra thankful for the best snuggles from our little angel baby. She came when we needed her most 💗
  • Missing my mom more than ever this week and so wishing she could’ve met Ainsley. She would’ve been the best Grandma. She may not have ‘liked people’ 😉 but she loved her family (okay and her friends) more than anything. So grateful to have our raw wedding video footage to relive moments like this (with her and Uncle Kev) and thanks for the commentary @juneandjae ❤️
  • I blinked, and you weren’t a newborn anymore. You still look just like your dad, and I’m trying to pass my love for stripes onto you already. We can’t thank @lqmke enough for sending us Ainsley’s first @macandmia box that I shared more about in my Stories (I want a pair of these pajamas in my size, please). I also included a link in my bio for $20 off your first box. Use the link and stylist code LINDSAYF to make sure you get the same stylist as our sweet girl 💗
  • I’m still living in comfy joggers and button down tops, but I’m heading out to dinner tonight and excited to pull out some of my favorite pieces from last year. I splurged on the Stuart Weitzman OTK boots as a pre-baby “to me, love me” gift but didn’t love the fit for my height (I’m 5’2”). I’ve tried three other flat, OTK options from Nordstrom but still haven’t found anything I like as much as this $40 pair from @target. I cut the ties in the back because they seemed really long, and you definitely have to tie them tight to hold them in place but for the price, you can’t go wrong! Swipe to see a close up 📷. I linked the boots and similar tops and skirts in the @liketoknow.it app to easily recreate the look. http://liketk.it/2y8UW #liketkit #LTKunder50 #targetmyway #everydaymadewell
  • I’ve said it before, but motherhood truly is the hardest, most rewarding and humbling job. It’s questioning yourself all day long, but ultimately knowing what’s best for your little one. It’s wanting 20 hands to do more but also just wanting your own two hands to hold her a little longer. It’s crying because of the scary firsts but then crying tears of joy when you see the first smile. It’s worrying something’s wrong in the middle of the night and looking at her only to find her sleeping peacefully, giving me a friendly reminder to “relax mom”. I’ve waited and watched her put herself to sleep only to start missing her the second she closes her eyes. I clipped her thumb the first time I tried to cut her nails. I’ve spilled my breast milk. I’ve had days where I’ve done too much and days that I didn’t leave my bedroom. My body leaks when I least expect it. My back hurts from leaning over the bassinet to comfort her. Last night, I felt the most tired I’ve ever felt in my entire life only to feel completely recharged when she curled her head into my chest after her first feeding this morning. I’m sad thinking how fast she has grown but so proud of her already at nearly seven weeks. Ainsley Rose, you’re our greatest gift. Thank you for making me a mom. #honestmotherhood #motherhoodunplugged
