white pants and a cerulean blue topYes, I’m a southern gal and sometimes I’ve just got to be lovin’ something. Today, I’m lovin’ me some white pants! I am just about as crazy about white pants as I am about white blouses. At last count I have 5 pair of straight white pants, not to count another two pair with stripes.

White Pants Add Crispness And Polish

Why do I like them so much? When you add white to an otherwise casual outfit, you elevate your everyday style just a touch. The color white evokes the idea of crispness and polish.cerulean blue top with a mesh back cut-out

I paired my white boyfriend jeans with a cerulean blue top. The back has a v-shaped mesh feature that adds visual interest.white boyfriend jeans, cerulean blue top and stainless jewelry

I paired this otherwise simple outfit with some bolder jewelry pieces. The stone and silver bracelets were handmade by a friend when we lived in Laos. I paired the bracelets with some of my favorite Fossil stainless steel rings and a light blue oversized ring. I am also wearing a Lilly Barrack silver signature ring with a topaz stone.

I decided to add some readers to make it real for this post, since they are typically perched on the top of my head!

I hope this post finds you all enjoying your last week of August. For some of you, warm weather will be but a distant memory in the not-so-distant future. Enjoy the warm days while they last!
