Hot Take of the Week: Winter White

If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it once enough: “you can’t wear white after Labor Day.”

But come on, rules are meant to be broken!!

For example, those white jeans you were going to pack away until Memorial Day, keep them out! Sporting a pair of white jeans during the winter months adds a new dimension to your otherwise plain-Jane jean ensemble.

I recently purchased these frayed white jeans from The Gap, which are currently on sale for under $20 dollars! Pair your winter white with a chunky scarf or over-sized sweater, and suddenly you’ve traveled from the Hampton’s all the way to Aspen. AND if you’re really trying to break some rules pair your (now winter) white jeans with a cream sweater, like one of my favorites from H&M, found here. You can also purchase my H&M knit turtleneck sweater here for under $40 dollars.

When I’m not too busy breaking fashion rules, I find myself craving MORE booties. My new favorite Marc Fisher beige booties, pictured above, are a must have item. I love the way the beige color looks with white jeans, as well as with black tights and denim. You can purchase these for under $100 dollars at Macy’s, available here.

I would like to end with a quick shout-out to my new friend at Macy’s whose name I can’t quite remember. Anyway, my new Macy’s-Shoe-Fairy-Godmother clued me in on a little tip: in order to sustain the life of a boot, thick socks should always be worn. Personally, I never wore thick socks with my booties. However, since my Macy’s-Shoe-Fairy-Godmother gifted me this new little piece of wisdom, I wear thick socks in booties for my Cinderella self.

Finally, if you’re digging my dark green nails as much as I am, it’s “Serene Green” shellac.
