White Jeans & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up Party!

April 16, 2015
  As a pear-shape, I’ve always stayed away from light colored pants.  But I keep seeing you dolls rocking your white jeans (and it’s the next HIWM challenge) so I figured it was time to step out of my comfort zone and give some white jeans a try!

A few hints if you’re curvy on the bottom too and shopping for white jeans …

Hint #1 Tame your expectations. These will never be your go-to black pants or your flattering dark wash jeans.

Hint #2 Don’t try on anything in a junior store or junior sizes, or very light weight super stretchy fabric. Just trust me.

Hint #3 Prepare to try on a lot of pants that day. Of course if you start where I stopped, you might be luckier. I ended up with The Loft Curvy Straight Leg Jean.
What do you think?

Wore this casual look on a day trip to Carmel with the hubby.

    I'm much too clumsy to wear much white, white jeans wouldn't stay white very long for me, haha!

    I guess white pants are all the rage right now. I love Loft's petites. They fit me perfectly. It is so hard to find good petite lines. Ah, Carmel…I love Carmel. We were just in Monterey.

    Hope you are feeling better. I do love Loft jeans, they are the right price point and they have different cuts to make the fit perfect for most.

    Oh white pants… I don't think I have the patience to try and find a pair for summer… but I so want them! Of course, if I DID get some they'd probably have chocolate or kid fingerprints all over them in like 2.8 seconds. lol. Your outfit looks lovely and breezy and comfy and fun!

When I was sick, I was bound and determined to not the that DANG CANCER slow me down, but then after I survived all the treatments I had realized my life was so STRESSSSSFULLLL for a year that I had to just STOP all the Spinning Ferris Wheels, Merry Go Rounds and Roller Coasters and just GET OFFFFF! lol

    A tip to add to this: find a good tailor or someone who can alter your shop bought clothes. That's my trick. It makes me despair less and less having to rely on what's on offer. I bought wonderful boyfriend white jeans (which visually do add a stone, yes yes, but I like them) and I had them altered so now they fit absolutely perfect which does makes all the difference. Hav enot done a post on them yet. will do soon! Thanks for hosting, Irmin

  • Reply BAM April 25, 2015 at 7:29 pm

    The jeans look fantastic on you! I guess we're both newcomers to white jeans, eh? You're so brave to wear them with a shorter top. I don't think I can bring myself to do that so I'm going to stick to tunics and longer tops that cover my bum. 🙂 After reviewing my closet, I have several longer tops that will look great with the jeans so I feel like I made a good purchase. Time will tell I guess….
