White Hot

This morning I put on my white jeans for Carrie of This Free Bird's White Denim in Winter Challenge, and I swear they just commanded warmer weather. It was a pleasant 40° which thankfully helped to melt through most of the thick ice covering every walkable surface. So I felt pretty safe in my heels today.

Even though I'd already styled these jeans for the winter twice before, I was really excited about the challenge and wanted to create a look that would feel fresh, and combine elements of summer and winter in a way that felt seamless.

I would say that I took inspiration from everywhere; the pairing of rust and grey, the fur vest layered over the leather jacket, piling on layered chains and playing up toughness with stud earrings and my totally badass hedgehog ring (I bet he could really do some damage if used as a weapon).

I even painted my nails for the occasion; it's Rimmel London Steel Grey.

I must admit, I am pretty darn pleased with the results, and I hope I've changed the mind of anyone who ever said that you can't wear white after Labor Day!

  1. I'll have to check out the challenge. My guess is that you're truly a contender! I love that white is acceptable in fall/winter, especially since our weather in LA is often sunny and warm.

  3. Lyddie - you have outdone yourself with this one! I am in love with so many elements - the boots, the fur, the leather, the red...where to begin?? You have singlehandedly proven that white can be incredibly chic and stylish in the winter. I love it! And I need to haul out my fur. This looks so good!!

  12. I love the rich colors in this outfit! Also, gotta love that fur vest...I have something similar and wear it so much.

    I typically don't wear white in the winter because I don't want to blend in with the snow, not because I'm old fashioned. I've been dreaming of my white denim pants lately, though, so I might have to bust them out a little early this year.
