White in Winter

Wearing white in Winter is totally okay. Don’t believe those old rules about banishing white after Labor Day. Rules schmules. Take a look at my outfit, do I not look like I’m dressed appropriate for the season?

This pair of white denim is old from Loft similar. You might remember I cut off the hem to give it that slightly frayed look last Summer. I cuffed them all the time so I figured why not. Glad I did! They still work well with tall boots and now my Summer denim is perfect for my white in Winter look!

My sweater is from Shein. I purchased it last Winter but it’s back this year for only $22 and comes in five colors. I’ve worn it with dark denim in the past but I have to say that pairing it with white for Winter is my favorite.

Since the sleeves steal the show, I didn’t wear a necklace and instead opted for earrings and one of my favorite bracelets from Accessory Concierge.

My boots are so old! I can’t remember if I purchased them at Macy’s or TJ Maxx. The brand is White Mountain and they are comfortable. Tall boots and sweaters last me forever because they only get worn a few times a season. These , these, and these are all by the same brand (comfortable!) and similar in color. I think they look great with white in Winter – less shocking than if you were to wear back or dark brown boots.

Here’s my tip if you want to wear your white denim from Summer in Winter: wear tall boots to conceal the cropped or frayed hem. You’ll get more wear from your favorite pair and they don’t have to wait until the weather warms to make an appearance!

Do you wear white in Winter? Would you try this?

XO,
Kellyann

      Oh yeah Maria, 4 dogs and white are not gonna work. I’d keep the dogs though, nothing better than your canine companions! I appreciate the sweet words!

      Thanks Jaymie! This sweater is acrylic which means it’s almost too warm to wear here but I love the fun sleeves so I just may have to sweat through it, lol!

    Gorgeous, girlfriend, and TP is seriously looking into flights to Florida after seeing you so pretty in pink today! I looked into white jeans in winter last year; the natural light plays tricks on white here and you have the perfect lighting in Florida, lucky you. Let’s see more of you looking amazing in winter white jeans, and sell your state to all us wannabe snowbirds! Hugs gorgeous x.

      Oh sista, you know how to make me smile! Tell TP to book that flight, we would have so much fun and you’d love being in nice, warm, perfect lighting Florida! You know what’s funny? I gained so much weight over the holidays I felt like a stuffed pig in this outfit and almost didn’t post it – ha!
      All my love to you sweet friend and TP too!

    I love wearing white in the winter!! This blush top is so pretty with the white and I love those ruffled sleeves. I have a pair of white pants that are actually ankle pants and I used to wear them with my taller boots… I’ve since retired them with longer white pants, since they got a hole in them (which just goes to show how much I love to wear white pants!).

      Haha, yes, sounds like you wore them out! White is great in Winter, everyone’s always reaching for black and grey but white is so much more refreshing!

    Funny, I am wearing white jeans in my post today too, great minds think alike! This looks fantastic on you. I’ve been looking for a new pair of white jeans, the ones I have on today have ripped knees, which is great, but have been looking for a solid pair. I have bought no less than 10 pairs…still am looking for that unicorn…it’s out there right?

    • Kellyann
      January 10, 2018 / 8:12 pm

      Oh girl, yes, they are out there (or was that the truth that’s out there?)! Anyhow, good luck with the search, I bought a great pair from Old Navy last year, have you tried those? Probably if you’ve had like 10 pair! No worries, with Spring coming I’m sure there will be no shortage of fabulous white jeans!

    I wore a similar outfit last week! I love how the pink looks paired with white! Your boots are great too! I am loving the wedge heel! It makes it so much easier to walk (especially if you need to worry about ice like I do)!

      Thank you Lana! Especially in Florida, where it is hot AGAIN, we wear white jeans, shorts, and tank tops! I wonder if I lived in a cooler climate if I’d still pull them out. Hope you’re having an awesome day!

    I love the way you styled your white denim for winter! I am a big fan of wearing white during the winter and this look is perfect.

    You look gorgeous in this! I love the white and pink mix. Speaking of boots, I finally had a pair bite the dust this year- they were seven years old. They just don’t see much wear in our climate.

      Thanks Fonda! I know, cold weather clothes last us forever which makes shopping this time of year no fun at all. All the great sales are tempting but I’m trying to save my money for Spring and Summer clothes, fingers crossed I can do it!

    Seriously momma…you look HOT! I haven’t worn my white jeans this winter but mainly because I’ve gained so much weight and they don’t hide that as well lol.

    You killed white in winter my friend. I know it’s acceptable and I’m good with it, I just forget to do it. My brain just can’t keep up…lol. I love, love, love those sleeves on you. Way to rock it my beautiful friend! XO

      Thanks friend! I think I do white in Winter since it feels like Spring or Summer here! I’m sure it would be a little different if I lived in a cooler climate. Heck I wear shorts in January in this crazy climate! Thanks my love for all the sweet words, you’re so good to me!

    Hi! Just thought I’d pop by from Patti’s Visible Monday link up. I love your top, especially the color. I agree white jeans can be worn any time of the year. I actually find it has more to do with the fabric than the color. Have a great week!

      I guess living in Florida white is a staple year round. This is a great time to start shopping for white pants. Swim suits are already out – crazy, huh? Thanks so much Michele for commenting!

    Wow, I love this look Kellyann! The pretty soft pink of your sweater, those sleeves! i love this combination with the white jeans. I have a pair or 2 from Loft as well, and found these jeans from Nordsies called wit and wisdom brand that are super soft, so I am waiting for them to come out with white denim for this spring. You look great!
    thanks for linking!

      Thanks Jess! I had some black Wit & Wisdom jeans. White can be so hard to find – at least a good pair. I’ve been pretty lucky with Loft and I found a great pair last year from Old Navy that are a little thicker. I was impressed that they had flesh colored material to line the pockets. It drives me crazy to see white pockets through white pants or shorts! I’ll be anxious to see how you like your new white pants and of course how you style them!
