Put It In Neutral

Wearing – Top: Free People | Jeans: Old Navy | Necklace: Bauble Bar | Shoes: Tory Burch

White is completely acceptable to wear after Labor Day in my book. That old rule of "no white after Labor Day" has become a thing of yester-year and fashionable ladies everywhere can be seen strutting their favorite neutrals after that quintessential end-of-summer holiday. I had been searching all summer long for a pair of white jeans that wasn't see through and let me tell you that is no easy feat. Let's face it ladies, it's definitely not a cute look to have your favorite undies seen by your co-workers.

I finally found these pants at Old Navy–on clearance for $12.00 may I add–and couldn't love them more. Okay, so the fit isn't perfect and the waist is slightly large, but let's be honest here, this girl is no stranger to odd fitting pants as I have a small waist and larger thighs. Apparently designers these days think most women are a size 2 and 7 feet tall, and tend to forget about us "curvier" girls. Ha! I knew when I bought these pants that they would be styled perfectly with this adorable Free People top. Can I just say this top is ridiculously comfortable and I kinda want to wear it everyday? The added lace peplum at the back and around the sides make for the perfect, waist flattering fit too!

As always the necklace was a last minute add and I totally forgot about adding any bracelets to the look. Sometimes simplicity trumps over accessories looks, what can I say.

    1. Thank you Shannon! The top and necklace are probably some of my favorite pieces right now. It would totally have worn that necklace more this summer if it hadn't been so humid this summer–the necklace is super heavy and being sticky and wearing that is never a good thing. :)

  9. I am in love with your necklace! It looks amazing on you! Old Navy did really well with their denim this year. I tried a million pairs of white jeans only to fall back to old navy. I also got a pair of black that are SO SOFT I could sleep in them.

    1. Thanks Whitney! This necklace is so much more versatile that I originally thought. Old Navy is totally killing it in the pants game right now. Their cuts are perfect right now–my fave is the rockstar.
