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.

You are rocking white jeans now for sure! I love white jeans and wear them all year long. Can't wait to check out all the link ups! Have a great weekend. Peace! Cheryl
I'll be curious to see how often I actually wear them. Twice so far! 😉 Thanks Cheryl! OXOX
Cute outfit! The white jean look really nice on you!
Thanks, Cathy! OXOX
I think the white jeans look great on you!!!
Aww thanks Lisa! OXOX
There's nothing more chic than a great pair of white jeans! You look fabulous and ready for a day in Carmel! More great bloggers featured, too! I know Pam's and Rachel's blogs well–two more of my faves. Thanks for hosting this link up (I had to miss last week–was in DC). 🙂 T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com
Hope DC was fun, Tina! Love your pics! OXOX
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.
Monterey and Carmel …heavenly. Were you at the jazz festival? OXOX
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.
Hope to see you for TBT Fashion link up.
I'll have to try them more often. I think this is my first pair of LOFT jeans! OXOX
Love your white jeans! So chic! I just bought my first pair of white pants from J. Crew last summer. I was also hesitant about the trend, but they do look really polished. Have a great weekend!
Thanks, Katie. I'm really curious to see how often I wear them! OXOX
Aww thanks for the feature Dawn!! I will give a shout out to you tomorrow, and link tomorrow's post up.
Oh and by the way I love your white pants, I know mine are my favorite!
You look adorable, Rachel! And thanks! OXOX
You look great. Nice outfit!

You look great in white jeans! Have a relaxing weekend.
Thanks sweet Tiina! OXOX
The white jeans look great. We have Loft now in Canada, so I'll check them out as I need a pair of white jeans this year.
They have a good variety of different fits! OXOX
You bought well – those white jeans are lovely on you! 🙂
I'm much too clumsy to wear much white, white jeans wouldn't stay white very long for me, haha!
Thank you for the link up!
Away From The Blue
We'll see how often I spill on them, Mica! 😉 OXOX

Awesome laid back look – have a lovely weekend!!!
Thanks, Hon! OXOX
Wow, I think you look really great in your white pants! I love the grey with them. I won't lie, they scare me too, but I love how everyone is styling them!!
The Real Arnolds
They would look FAB on you, Dear! OXOX
I used to think that white jeans made a person look bigger but I've changed my mind this year. I think these look great on you.
They're not super flattering, but I have to say, much more so than I thought they would be!
You look fantastic in your white pants first of all. I love the breezy, light colors here and those slip-on shoes are awesome! I love The Loft. And how cute, you featured other ladies in their white pants.
Hey I rocked my White Skinny Jeans this week also (check out the post below and let me know what you think). Thanks. I think you will like the looks.
And I hope you feel much better and enjoy the weekend! Pleasure linking up as always!
Always happy to have you here, Ada! OXOX
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!
Haha … I did get a bit of dog hair on mine, but I'm sure with kids it would be a challenge! 😉
I think those look great on you and I love how you have mixed it with grey, have a great weekend!
Thanks Nora! I wasn't sure about the grey, but it just seemed to work. OXOX
You look great in your white jeans! Love this cute, casual look!
Doused In Pink
Thanks Jill! OXOX
I love how those look on you! Very flattering and perfect for spring!
I'm not sure about flattering, but thanks for saying it! 😀
Oh Dawn! I am in the market for nice white jeans, thrift or not, probably not cuz if gals have nice white jeans, they hang on to them but of course I'm hitting Platos Closet first! Loving that you are hosting, yippee!!!
I missed your Friday link up so much, Renae, I had to start my own! 😉
Aww, thanks for the feature, lady! You are definitely rocking those white jeans – they look great on you! Happy weekend!
Your rocking yours too my dear!
You look amazing in these white jeans! What a great, effortless looking outfit.
How sweet. Thank you! 🙂
Thanks for the feature! TWP link up is live once again where I feature the same white pants every week for a year.
You are the white pants QUEEN! OXOX
In my opinion, lightweight, super-stretchy fabric isn't a flattering option for ANYTHING, dearest Dawn!! 😉 But you've definitely "done good" with these new white jeans of yours…and loving that grey sweater, too!! XOXO
Haha … well, that IS a good point, Monika! OXOX
Truly those jeans look fab! I'm glad you stepped out of your box!!! I think it's a great lesson to all of us—those rules can apply but aren't we the rule breakers? jodie
We ARE the rule breakers, Jodie! Thanks! OXOX
I wanted to ask, where there was sand! I want to be there Ha! YOu look great in these white jeans, I have 2 different pair of them from Loft, I need to get on the ball!
Love the neutral bag and the grey with silver jewelry. Great examples too!
TGIF my friend! XO
Thanks Dear! OXOX
I think you look amazing in these white jeans! I don't feel the most comfortable with white jeans but I just love how they pair with some many different tops. I'm featuring one this week as well. Have a great weekend! ~Cynthia
Thanks sweet Cynthia! OXOX
You look amazing in your white jeans ! Love the photos . Have a lovely weekend 🙂 x
Aww you're too sweet, Beata! OXOX
Oh so you do admit it is work? I am just in a place now days that is liberating and free (health-wise) and I just don't want a drudgery issue in blogging. 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
Sure love you! Thank you for taking the lead and hosting. Super of you!!! ♥
Once we get past the anxiety of dropping sauce on them, we love a good pair of white jeans! They're so versatile and chic
M + K
You Look Fabulous!
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
Lovely look dear! <3
I have been slow to get around to blogs this weekend…please forgive a late THANK YOU for featuring me! I love wearing white jeans and pants…so much fun and look great any time, any where. Some fun styles here. Thanks again!
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….
