White Denim for Spring

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.

  • It’s a no for Ainsley. We totally forgot Santa was visiting daycare tonight. We were up with her from 2-4 a.m. then all overslept and pretty much didn’t know what day it was when we woke up. Even if we slept through the night though, I don’t think we would’ve remembered. Tomorrow is a new day, and we’ll try again with Santa this weekend 😜
  • Bill, the Christmas elf, stayed up late last night putting the lights on the tree so that it was ready for ornaments in the morning 🎄❤️
  • Santa’s little helper thinks my fishy face could use some improvement, but she made up for the judgmental look by helping me fill some stockings. We ended the night with a dance party and waving goodnight to our tree (and hers) and all of her stuffed animals so I’d say she’s officially on the mend (knock on wood)!
  • This is probably going to be a rambling mess but this time of year is filled with a lot of emotions for me. And while nothing beats experiencing the holidays with a 14 month old, there’s still that hole in my heart missing my mom and brother. This room has taken two years to fill and so much has happened in that time that I wish they would have been here for. If you’re going through a new loss this holiday season (or any loss really), my heart is heavy for you. If you have a friend or family member coping with loss, I have two posts on my blog that may help even just a little - “How to Help a Grieving Friend” and “Coping with Loss During the Holiday Season”. There is a link to them in my bio. Every loss is different and I am by no means an expert, but writing has helped me along the way. (And while not the topic of this post, here are links to most of the pieces in this room because it’s really starting to feel like home, and I love it http://liketk.it/2HttZ #liketkit @liketoknow.it).
  • I couldn’t resist adding some Christmas magic to Ainsley’s room a little early. This is one of the trees my sister and I had in our room growing up around the holidays. Ainsley loves it just as much as we did! And thank you for checking in on our sweet girl. She finally seems back to herself just in time for the long holiday weekend ❤️
