White Out – Bloggers Do It Better

Kristina from Pretty Shiny Sparkly is basically a genius for coming up with the Bloggers Do It Better series. The first go-round of Bloggers Do It Better was huge success (in my humble opinion).  I got to look at over 100 other bloggers’ color-blocking looks and got a ton of traffic on my blog, too!  I can’t wait to see the success of the second assignment, White Out.

Top: Hinge Silk Blouse (via Nordstrom)
Jeans: Guess (via Macy’s)
Wedges: Zigi Soho (via DSW)
Bag: Aldo
Ring: Max & Chloe
Knot Bracelet: Express
Various Bangles & Hair Bow: Forever 21
Pearl Drop Earrings: Nordstrom, unsure of the brand

I have been wanting to buy a pair of white jeans for the past few summers, but had never gotten around to it.  I always ended up deciding that I would get them dirty or that they weren’t very flattering.  When the White Out assignment was posted, I bit the bullet and got a pair.  I think they will be SO versatile this summer.

Now that you’ve seen my take on the white trend, go check out the rest of the looks!

Oh, ya know, just about to fall over into the mud in my new white jeans…

    I just love that sheer white blouse and how you paired it with the jeans! You nailed the “White Out” challenge for sure!

  19. 5.3.11

    In a couple of the shots the blouse looks like it has a slight slight pink tint, does it? Super cute look. Love the sheer top! Keeps it all very airy!

    Would love it, if you would stop by and see how a 45+ year old handles “White Out”—you might get a good chuckle anyway! See you there! http://stillblondeafteralltheseyears.com/2011/05/white-out-change-it-up-outfits-modeled-by-women-over-45/

    Love your outfit! The blouse is so pretty, and the gold accessories are such a great touch! White and gold are just such a classic combination; i didn’t even fight it when I came up with my take on ‘white out’.

      Jessica commented:

      Thanks!! I LOVE white and gold together 🙂

    I am loving your white outot! I used to have white jeans but they were given to me by a friend and didn’t fit properly so I never wore them but I have always wanted to have a good pair that did.
    And I particularly love the sheer blouse. 🙂 I look forward to seein your other outfits in future bloggers do it better assignments!

    I felt the same way about white jeans. In fact, I think I still do! I always mysteriously find random dribbles and stains on my pants in the middle of the day. I’m not great with white at all!! Love your look though-especially the bag!

    A. White commented:

    Oh, wow! You truly are a vision all in white! I have to ask though…how did you stay so pristine clean thru the day? No sitting, eating, standing near kids? (ha ha)
    I hope you didn’t fall in the mud as you quoted.
    If I wear all white, I feel as though everyone is staring at me. Did you feel the same?

      This outfit was back during the glorious days of college (second semester senior year) when I didn’t have many commitments. I wasn’t in the outfit very long! I am usually a little bit of a clutz and would FOR SURE spill something on myself. Wearing all white is a bold statement so stares will definitely come!
