Borrowed

Top: c/o Shy Boutique (shop)  |  Pants: borrowed  |  Orange pumps: Urban Outfitters (shop)  |  Tote: ebags.com (shop)

White jeans.  I love them.  Sadly these are not mine; they're borrowed.  I try to avoid saying that I *NEEEEED* a particular item so as to cultivate gratitude in my heart instead of taking all that I have for granted, but hot dang, it's hard not to tell myself that I need some white jeans.  Suffice it to say, I would really, really like a pair.  They're on my list, but since I haven't found the right pair yet, I borrowed some because I thought they would go perfectly with this fun, summery color blocked top from Shy Boutique!

I think a bright top like this with white jeans is a great, easy peasy way to wear jeans in the summer.  Plus orange pumps, of course.  How would you wear jeans on a cooler summer day?

  1. I love jeans paired with a light and airy tank top that is not that easy to wear because it is so light. Too confusing? Well, I have a tank top that is like that and I always want a cool summer day to wear it on!

  5. This top is so perfect for you. It looks great- I feel in love with it in my Blog Lovin' feed. And I hate to say you "need" white jeans, but you may NEED white jeans. So versatile!

  6. Love that outfit! I have a pair of white jeans that I got at Gap Outlet for $20. It's so hot here in Alabama that I only get to wear them at night, but I usually pair them with a bright top and neutral accessories.

  9. I love this outfit and the colors... I guess you should go ahead and add some white skinnies to your must have list. I soooo wish I had a pair!

  16. This is slightly delayed, but I just wanted to let you know that I ended up getting the striped blazer you wore recently (from Shade) and I absolutely love it! I had been looking for one for so long, and I'm so glad you included a link! Now I just have to wait for this triple digit weather to disappear! 


    Regarding your look, I would do exactly what you did: pair white jeans with a colorful top and colorful shoes! Love it! Thanks again!!-Katehttp://ajourneyinstyle.blogspot.com

  17. I have never, ever owned white pants of any kind, but I've seen some amazing white skinnies lately that are making me wonder. I suspect it would take me AGES to make a decision I am happy with, though, so who knows if I'll ever end up owning some? At least you made a good use of borrowing and have an excellent combo here!

  18. I love white jeans but also haven't found a pair that doesn't make my legs look ginormous. I really like that that pair has a skinny line but isn't super tight.

  20. Cute top!  I have a similar color block top that's blue/beige/white and I paired them with white shorts since it was so hot this past weekend.  I just blogged about the top a couple of days ago.

    I am gonna say that YES you do NEED white jeans!  They are so versatile and makes your outfit look so cool & crisp.

  21. Oh, the need vs. want... but they look so good on you! White jeans do make for easy outfits (I love bright tops too, and also chambray of course), but I made myself wait to find a really good deal on a pair because most summer days are way too hot for jeans around here. If it helps justify, I have found them to be quite versatile, even getting good spring and fall use out of them :)

  22. You need to get a pair of white jeans STAT! They look so wonderful on you. I love how you wore them with the color blocked top. Genius!

    I love my white trouser jeans! Ive worn them with a white cowl neck shirt and a colorful necklace for a pop of color.

  23. Love the top!  Can I ask what size the top is your are wearing?  Thanks!

  24. Just 2 medium and 2 large left in this top! I know you love it as much as I do so i wanted to let you now before it was gone for good!!

  25. White jeans scare me. It's one of the few fashion things I will say, "I can't pull them off." Not because of how I would look but because 100% I would destroy them within 2 seconds of putting them on. But then I see you in these jeans looking fabulous and really want a pair!

  29. what a great fun summer-y outfit! white denim is such a great piece to play with and I love how polished you made it look while still being quite fresh!

  30. I've added a lot of orange and yellow to my wardrobe lately, but this orange and red top is fab!! I love my white jeans with a classic top http://www.impr4less.blogspot.com/2012/06/bargains-at-belk.html

  31. You are right, the white jeans go splendidly with that top. I get your white jean thing... I really really want some too... as well as a red pair of jeans.  I know that sounds pretty bold, but I promise, if you "borrow" someone's red jeans, you will have a blast styling with them. :)
