WHITE PANTS ALLOWED

jacket: c/o chicwish // button up: forever 21 (similar) // jeans: h&m – on sale in stores for $10! (similar) // boots: target // necklace: c/o very jane // sunglasses: target (similar)

Now that white jeans are officially allowed, since it’s past Memorial Day, I plan to wear them pretty much every day. I snagged this pair at H&M last week on sale for $10, and between that and a $3 bleach pen, it’s the best summer investment I’ve made so far.

Speaking of Memorial Day, we invited Leanne and her boys down to HB for the long weekend, and it was pretty much the best weekend ever. Between mornings at the beach, several walks through downtown and to the pier, an amazing dessert date night at Zimzala (where we hired a real babysitter and I suddenly felt like a full blown adult), s’mores on Kayla’s awesome deck, and staying up til 2:00am talking, it was the perfect weekend. We’re also all really full and really tired.

…..

Also, have you guys heard of Very Jane? It’s a daily deals website that is full of fun clothing and accessories. They sent me this pretty necklace and I have been loving finding ways to style it. It’s perfect for summer and I think styling with a summery white linen dress (that I’m hoping to make next week) will be next on my list!

Hope you had a happy long weekend too!

  • That last picture of you is gorgeous! The pink in the background, the smile! Just perfect! and woow 10$ I agree! Best investment!

  • I love that you are still wearing long sleeves and posting about it. I keep wanting to too, so know I will. I also love that you posted your weekend. That pick with the moon is amazing.

  • OK this is seriously freaking me out. I swear I'm not just trying to get your lovely readers to go to my blog, but WE ARE TOTALLY WEARING THE SAME OUTFIT TODAY. Well I'm not technically wearing mine today (Friday) and you probably aren't either, but still. Crazy! And can I just say…we both look fabulous πŸ™‚

  • I wore white jeans on Sunday, I guess I was a day early. Oops! lol

  • Ok, I'm running to my nearest H&M, I love those pants! And seriously the best weekend ever. Garrett and I keep talking about how much fun we had! Thanks again for having us!!

  • so… earlier I commented on Janssen's post where she was looking for white jeans and I mentioned the $10 H&M one's (which I also picked up) and then noticed you had already commented about them. Isn't that such a great deal! I can't wait to wear mine… not at work though, way to nervous about all the red pencil and pen we use.

  • For $10, those jeans fit you SO PERFECT. Great investment. Love the jacket too!

  • Cool outfit! Like the necklace!

  • So you still stick to no white jeans before Memorial Day in California? I don't. It's so much warmer here that the warm part starts earlier. And actually I'm not sure I stuck to it in PA when I was there but it was just colder so I didn't wear white so much.

    • No way…I've been wearing them for several months. They're just officially allowed now, so I figured it was as good of time as any to bust them out again πŸ™‚

    • OK that makes me feel better. Going through the blogs I follow, so many had on white jeans over the weekend. I guess everyone had your idea.

  • I am SO addicted to Very Jane! πŸ™‚

  • Lovin' the white jeans! They look super cute on you.

  • Love this outfit, you look so chic and stylish and the white pants work really well with the green army style parka jacket and gingham shirt. Great look!

  • So, I have been searching for a green jacket like that for 6 years, and I am not exaggerating. (If it is something i really love the look of, I take getting some clothing items very seriously, like boots. I wait until it is just what I want at the right price and this seems to fit the bill.) I am *this close* to buying this one but am debating the size. I remember you being fairly tall and I am 5'9", thinking of getting a medium as that is my go-to size. You are so tiny, so I bet you have a small. Is your's just right or extra roomy? Would you recommend going a size down fro normal on this jacket or going with the norm? Thanks beautiful Merrick!
