Destined for spots

Monday is definitely tough after such a great weekend, a perfect mix of being social and having some just with Sean, and reveling in the fact that we were out and about in the world on actual weekend days.

While it was delightfully hot this past weekend, this outfit is from when it was less so. As I've mentioned, white is my favorite color, and I adore my white jeans. I know many people say they are terrified of white because they know they will spill - and I am no different; I spill, yet I wear white. True to form, somehow in taking a sip of my Sister's sangria, some managed to get on my jeans. I came out of the restroom looking like I'd had a different kind of accident, but at least the jeans didn't stain and we'd already taken outfit photos.

  1. White is my favorite color too (ok, and maybe black too!). I love the spotted blouse with the white. Gives off such a pretty contrast. Hope you had a great holiday! -xx


  2. It's true about white - I wear it a lot and people always make comments about spills. The fact is, of course I spill. We all do. I wore a white blouse last weekend and ate one grape... naturally, there is now a small purple spot on my blouse. But that's life, and for me, wearing white is worth the inherent risks. I know it is for you, too, and I'm glad, because I never tire of seeing you restyle your white jeans. This may be my favourite outfit with them yet. I'm such a fan of this sweater, it's the perfect animal print as far as I'm concerned - subtle and not over-the-top, but just different enough for your run of the mill leopard to make your outfit look really different.

  3. White can be dangerous, but I agree with you, no reason to shy away from it! Spills happen to the best of us :) You look lovely in this outfit. I love the spots! Hope you had a nice weekend!

  10. I love this look--the leopard + white is such a pretty, classic combo. And your hair!! Goodness, it's just so pretty. Good thing the sangria didn't stain!

  11. I love that leopard top, and it looks great with the white jeans!

  12. I've had lots of mishaps with white lol :) This top is one of my favorites of yours :)

  13. I love white jeans for summer, but I always spill something on myself too!


  14. I always think of white as better to wear because worst case you can bleach it! Love the white with the animal print.

  15. White pants are tough, but I love them too! Your animal print top is so cute!

  16. Oh, no! I'm sorry to hear about the wine spill on your white jeans! When I'm shopping with my mother, she refuses to let me buy white things, hahaha. It's probably for the best. The only white thing I own is a white T-shirt, and even that is a daring staple. At least your top is all right--it's so cute, and leopard print is something you can never go wrong with. Did you salvage the pants, then, since they didn't stain? I hope so!

  17. White jeans make any top more summer like and are great for those cooler days. These look fantastic on you!

  18. Love that top! I am constantly spilling on myself, no matter what I wear!


  19. I love this outfit- white jeans always look so fresh to me. Oh man, going back to reality is never fun. If only we could have one more day!

  20. I do love wearing white jeans this time of the year and like you, I always spill on them when I wear them. I love the pretty gold touches in this outfit!


    Would love to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.

  21. Love how your heels accent the spotted top as well. Nice attention to detail :)
    It always makes an outfit stand out!

  23. I'm on hunt, seems since forever, for white jeans. This weekend I went through all shops and I didn't found. I'm not sure is it possible to buy perfect pair online. You look amazing in these white jeans.

  24. Love the look. YES to animal print, everything. ;-)


  25. I love my white jeans too - but I always get something on mine too! I just had to use the stain stick on them but luckily everything came out! I'm a fan of your leopard top too!
