Winter Whites



It has been my life long dream to wear a white pant suit. Life. Long. I’m not kidding! My whole life! Having Olivia Pope’s wardrobe would be a dream come true for me, but alas, it’s not something I could REALLY do. Or can I?

The one thing I love to do for the holidays is wear winter whites. Usually to parties, or special occasions, I’ll layer on the various shades of white. Unlike summer whites, where it usually entails a white summer dress and that’s about it, a lot can be done with winter’s version. Mixtures of tones like ivory, cream, light beige and the palest greys mixed in with brilliant white along with the velvets, knits, silks and denims you’ll find around during the winter months.

I’m taking advantage of the availability of white jeans this season. I found the PERFECT pair of jeans for me this year, Citizens of Humanity makes this Rocket Crop jean, which actually hits exactly at my ankle. The rise is ten inches so there is absolutely no muffin top. Also, they fit perfectly around my calves, which for some reason, I have a hard time finding jeans that fit snugly around my legs. So… these jeans paired with a cream cashmere sweater and a pair of white d’orsay pumps, is the perfect holiday attire.

    I adore wearing whites for winter, too! I agree with what you said about the layering - white clothes are just made for that. I like the subtle jewellery you added - it goes great with the rest.

    As for me, I’m a big fan of light colors in general and I wear them a lot during winter. My coat is pale pink, and I have a scarf in a creamy-white shade. Even though is not very practical, it somehow improves my mood in the gloomy days :)

    Oh gosh you are so glamorous here! I say “here” because there’s no way you are glam all the time with a kid in tow;).

      Haha, true, though I usually am wearing some version of jeans and a sweater these days! Also… I did wear all white last night with Jasp in tow!
