More Spring Shopping -- White Jeans!
Time to grab the opportunity to wear my new white jeans, another purchase at Gap's 40% off sale. (see that sunlight streaming through the windows, those sunny patches on the floor behind me. . .)
I love them with my new Vince pointed-toe flats (the Nina, an impulse buy from several weeks ago about which I have not one whit of regret) and a J Crew sweatshirt-ish top in a brilliant merino fabric. Amazingly comfortable, beautiful drape, the tenderest heathery grey.
But I yielded to reality. The Vinces nude-toned flats will be great in the city but riding a bike on muddy roads? Not so smart.
Switched to my Fluevog loafers in a distressed metallic finish. And while I was at it, decided to add a scarf -- it might be April sunny, but it's still a bit nippy in the morning.
here, where Kim dishes on how chic Parisians make their white jeans work in early spring.
I followed her advice and Voilà! Suddenly I was writing in French and looking chic, n'est-ce pas?
You're right -- I did decide to switch the scarf. Very observant of you.
And even with the blazer and cashmere scarf, I'm going to be chilly on the bike to the boat. Time for one last layer. I'm not really in Paris, after all, and one must bow to the realities of West Coast little island living (Field jacket by Aritzia, bought last spring).
allover Winter White. Are others being tempted as Spring tiptoes in? At Gap prices, this was an easy look to try out, and I really like the way these fit and feel. We'll see how long I can keep them looking fresh. . . .
