Winter White

The past few weeks in Chicago have been a harsh reminder that, though Spring is just around the corner, it's still very much winter in the midwest. While pastels and florals are on my mind, the frigid wind and snow-filled city streets just won't let Spring get a peek quite yet.

Do you remember when wearing white in fall/winter was all the buzz a few months back? {One of my first posts was dedicated to it!} I still love this rule-breaking "new rule" and have worn the look frequently over the past few months.


I bought these Ralph Lauren pants at TJ Maxx a few years back and they've been a staple in my wardrobe ever since. Their wide-legged shape is elongating and their high waistline is flattering, especially when paired with a thin belt. The fabric is a mix of wool and cashmere, and despite their airy appearance, they're actually very warm.
I typically pair these pants with a darker shirt to off-set the white, thin belt to accentuate the waistline, and layered accessories like these gold necklaces. On the day I wore this combination, I carried a red purse to add some "oomph" and a fur shawl because, well, isn't it adorable? I love the subtle blue that peeks throughout.





Have you worn white this winter?

  4. I can never wear white because I am so terrified of getting it dirty! I think it looks so stunning though.

  8. You look stunning in these pants! I have a similar pair (if not the exact same pair, I don't remember) and while I love them, they aren't right for my shape. Needless to say, I can't pull them off like you can!
