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.

  • Three years without our Kev. Remembering him today and every day 💙
  • So happy to be reunited with my people after traveling for work all week ❤️
  • I feel like a bit of a broken record these days but healing takes time and healing a broken heart while trying to keep it together for your family is hard. My mom was my best friend, and while I like to think I knew how good I had it while she was alive, there are just so many more things I’d want to thank her for, especially with my new lens as a mom to Ainsley. I can’t imagine going through chemo and still trying to take care of her grown kids the way she did. I can’t imagine getting the call that no parent ever wants to receive finding out your son passed away, and then going on to keep fighting cancer for another year and a half. All while still making me breakfast on the weekend and running errands for me during the week, helping me plan our wedding (literally don’t know what I would’ve done without her and my sister), taking every phone call from me as I was navigating new jobs, visiting house after house as Bill and I tried to find our first home and so, so much more that will never fit into an Instagram caption. I see so much of my mom’s determination and stubbornness in Ainsley, and I can’t wait to see more of her as she continues to grow up. I am forever grateful to be her mom — it’s the best ‘title’ I’ll ever have. And while, I’m grateful to have had my mom for as long as I did, it still feels way too short. Today was filled with lots of giggles and snuggles but also lots of tears as I celebrate my first Mother’s Day with Ainsley and my second without my mom. I’m trying to be better about letting myself have the bad days and giving myself more grace. So I’m calling it a night and watching Bad Moms while eating ice cream in bed. Sending lots of love if you’re having a hard day and a virtual cheers with my pint of ice cream ❤️

  • When you’re on duty to supervise the sleeping baby, but you’re also on vacation so you have a margarita with lunch. I’ve been living in this jumpsuit all week. I bought it in two colors, and it’s been great to wear to the pool but also for play time with Ainsley. Plus, it came in petite and has pockets 🙌🏼 http://liketk.it/2Bftk #liketkit @liketoknow.it
