For years now, I’ve had a love / hate relationship with white denim, and by that I mean I pretty much hated it. I should clarify. I like white jeans on other people, tons of other people. I just always had a hard time finding a pair I actually liked on myself, so I gave up. White skinnies made me feel anything but, and before someone comes at me about body positivity, don’t waste your time. I dress in things that make me feel good, and if something isn’t working, sometimes you gotta move on, right?
But this summer I stumbled on two pairs of white denim that I’m really digging, and not surprisingly, neither of them are skinny jeans. I snagged the above pair during a recent LOFT sale because at under $15 (at the time) they were too cheap to pass up. And what do you know, I actually really love them. Add a lightweight sweater (love this one) or blouse, and you’re good to go. Sadly this pair is pretty much sold out minus a couple of sizes, but I found a super similar pair here.
And the second pair (also unsurprisingly) comes in the form of denim shorts. Y’all, I’ve talked about these shorts before (I own them in 3 washes), but I really, really love them. I sized up two sizes from my normal jeans size so they’re loose and sit pretty low. (I love high rise jeans but do NOT like high rise shorts usually. Is that weird?) I’ve worn and washed them a hundred times and still love the fit.
While September is just around the corner, it’s still very much summertime in SoCal, and my white denim isn’t going anywhere. That “white after Labor Day” rule is long gone, and besides, it’s 2020. Anything goes. There are no rules. (And that shall be my mantra all weekend long.) Happy weekend, friends!
