Light Neutrals


This is what I wore on that kinda day--the kind of day on which you don't want to get dressed.  Usually I fear neutral outfits, but since I didn't want to get dressed I think my guard was down and I went for it.  Like, "Who cares, just put on some clothes, dang it."  Or maybe my subconscious was screaming to be refreshed because the lightness of this whole outfit did brighten up my mood a little.  Either way, I'll take it.

That said, I of course would have loved a nice pop from a colored bag or something because I'm not playing around when I say all neutral outfits scare me.  Too bad I got rid of all my colored bags a year or two ago.  Oopsies.  Since I needed some color I snuck in a pink bracelet as a little safety blanket.  Shh, don't tell.  I'm still jonesing for a colorful bag though!  Like this color, or this color (neon rose, NOT the pastel one) but not that price tag (!), or yellow, or green.  Really, any color haha.  What color bag are you sportin' the most lately?

    I like the outfit, but honestly, I really prefer color. I am on a major color kick right now - for example, today I am wearing purple skinnies, a bright pink top, and navy shirt over that, and violet, blue, and green eye shadow. I was going to wear bright green shoes but was afraid that would be too much! I need color right now! However, my purse is really neutral - cream and black - because I want it to transition to almost any outfit. :)

  6. I'm on the lookout for a pair of white jeans and everything, i swear, is see-through. Do you have any suggestions for a good solid white?

  7. Hi Alicia. Did you check the links above? My Old Navy jeans are not see-through. They are the Sweetheart cut, and I linked to some above (number one) which may or may not be the exact pair I bought--I'm not sure because I bought mine in store, but they would be a good starting place.


    I linked to number three because they're Levi's which I was hoping would be a thicker denim as well, so check there.


    Lastly, number six was recommended by someone yesterday as a pair that was pretty opaque.


    I don't have any first-hand experience with any of these, so I would recommend reading the reviews and see if people talk about how thick or see-through the jeans are. Good luck.

  13. Love your outfit! I've been trying to muster the courage to get and wear a pair of white jeans, and this outfit has convinced me. I love everything about it.

  14. I love this! We're so used to seeing you in color (which is fine and usually what I do, I hear you on fearing all-neutral) but this is refreshing! I love that clutch. I have two colored bags, one teal and one plum, and one neutral bag that's a crossbody in a nice cognac color. The latter is the one I always carry, though.

    I have that nine west bag in yellow. It's even more beautiful in person. I love it because it can double as a clutch, the strap just unclips.

  18. I have a yellow bag that is my go-to one for summer, and I love it so much. I've gotten a lot of compliments on it too. I also have an orange bag that I just love too as well as an adorable mint green satchel bag. I'm on the lookout for a cobalt blue one now!

  19. I actually love that you didn't pair this outfit with a colored bag, your neutral look is so sleek and sophisticated!

  22. Loving the patterned top with this! I also found that my ON boyfriend chinos are a lot less see through than the rockstar jeans.. Hate see through pants!

    Love the white jeans - just bought some a week ago, but haven't pair it with that top yet.

  28. Every time I see that top I think I want to buy it for myself! I just don't know what size if I order it online. Are you wearing an XS or an S?

  29. Audrey!!! You look absolutely fabulous! I love the white jeans with that top. Such a stunning neutral look. Such a great chic style! xo
