White Denim – Three Ways for Fall

White denim: Old Navy
With the last holiday weekend of the summer approaching, it’s time to revisit the age-old style rule of no white after Labor Day. 

I, for one, believe that this is a dying trend, and I’m at the front of the line to wear my white denim well through the fall and winter months. 
The key is to pair your white jeans or pants with darker neutrals, such as military green or tan/brown, to warm up the white. A leopard pattern or ankle booties also help transition white from summer to fall.

Will you be sporting your white denim during the colder months?

  2. I have to agree that the "no white after Labor Day" rule should be banished but I still get nervous when I do it for some reason?! I like the idea of pairing it with a tee and military jacket.. I'll have to give it a try in the next couple of weeks πŸ™‚

  9. Right? I think that tote is going to find it's way to me soon … it literally will go with anything and everything this fall. And, thank you! Still getting everything added/fixed, etc. πŸ™‚

  13. Thanks, girl! Things are still being changed/updated/added, but hopefully by the end of the week it will be finished. πŸ™‚ I have you to thank for getting me hooked on the military jacket/vest trend – I need one! I don't think I've ever worn my white denim during the cooler months either, but I'm determined to this year. I really think it looks classic, clean and cozy!

  14. Thanks, lady! My web designer and I are still working on some things, so hopefully it will be nice and pretty by the end of the week. πŸ™‚ White denim with olive would be perfect for fall!

    Love the new layout, and the addition of the gold! You are after my heart with that military jacket, also loving those movie night boots. It's funny I don't typically wear my white denim in the cooler months, I always associate white denim with spring and summer, maybe I need to change it up this year!

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
