{STYLE} White Out

Not even going to pretend a little bit: even after years of unlearning the myth that white clothing does not belong on bodies like mine, wearing white jeans still gives me a bit of anxiety. Truth be told, I'm way, way more nervous about sitting on something and ending up with a huge stain on my ass than I am about how my butt looks, though, (because thanks to NYDJ awesome denim cuts, I think it's actually looking pretty cute). I decided to challenge myself to wearing an all-white look with accents of my favorite color, pink, to kick off the summer. While I am generally way more inclined to wearing all-black-everything, I do love how fresh this look feels - and I guess I'm okay admitting that a light-colored outfit actually does do its job in the way of keeping your body's temperature down.

I found these jeans at Nordstrom, where they have a pretty amazing selection of premium denim, from this $53 pair from Melissa McCarthy, to this $198 pair from Eileen Fisher. Denim is one of the things that always ends up being worth investing a little bit more in, in my experience; not only is the tailoring impressive, but the shape, stretch, and color tends to hold up a bit better over time. My favorite premium denim is consistently NYDJ (I especially love the Clarissa style, and own them in a couple of washes - including light pink!), but it's worth noting, if you've never tried them, that you should size down at least a full size. They run on the larger side and also have built in textile technology that acts sort of like shapewear.
