Two Teens And Their Mama: Say Yes to White Jeans

Say Yes to White Jeans



Up until recently, I was pretty skeptical about wearing white jeans.  I had a large and varied list of excuses as to why you would not find white pants on my body.  I thought I was too old.  White jeans seemed more appropriate for the "younger than me" crowd.  I was afraid that the lighter color would make me look even bigger on the bottom than usual.  Plus, I live in Seattle ladies. Rain, wind and white jeans don't seem like a good mix.

Then I found Alison's blog at Get Your Pretty On and she did an entire post on finding the perfect white jean.  I emailed her and shared my excuses.  She assured me that I was not too old, and I realized that I should stop being afraid of a pair of pants :).  When I joined her Spring Style Me Challenge, one of the essential items was a pair of white jeans.

Great...now I was going to have to stop saying "oh yeah, I can totally rock a pair of white jeans". I had to go out and actually buy a pair!  I decided to head directly to my best fashion friend, Loft. It was like a wonderland of white jeans in there!  They had at least 6 different styles in the store, and I notice that there are even more choices online.  I tried on several pairs, and every one was figure flattering and had plenty of coverage.  I ended up buying the Boyfriend fit and it was true love.  Just in the last week I have worn these jeans twice.





I have received so many compliments on them, they cover my problem areas, and they are really comfortable!  No matter how old you are or where you live, I urge you to join me and say yes to white jeans :).

Today I'm joining up with some lovely ladies who are also taking part in the Spring Style Me Challenge.  Check out their blogs below for more great outfit inspiration!

    1. Keeping them clean is the hardest part. Two wearings and they're done for.

  3. You look great! As a child of the south, I was always told NOT to wear white before Memorial Day. Baloney. I've busted out my white jeans and I'm wearing 'em! You Rock!

    1. I grew up in the south too. I'm sure my mom would pass out if she saw me wearing these jeans now. Good thing she's in Arizona! Thanks so much for stopping by.

  4. Very cute outfits!! I love both jackets too, and the scarf. I've already spilled my coffee this morning though, so wonder if I should stick to dark (or brown) colors! This post inspires me though!

  8. So jealous - white jeans are the one clothing challenge piece I don't have, and I regret it daily. The other is the leopard flats, but I can't find them anywhere! You're rocking the white -- go girl!

    1. I know what you mean about stress eating! I love the boyfriend fit because they are more "forgiving". Thanks for stopping by!

  18. I still haven't entered the realm of white jeans. I'm worried about them being see-through.

    I did purchase a pair of cream or beige jeans this year and I can't wait to style and wear them.

    I'm like you, thinking that by placing the white on the bottom we are directing the eyes there and in turn making our lower half look larger. I can see though now that your photo turns that theory on its head. The pale green is lovely with them.

  21. Lana, thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I actually checked out your blog last week. I totally say YES to White Jeans. Good job with this challenge. Loving both outfits, especially the first one. And now I want a Green Gingham Shirt.

    I hope we can follow and support one another via this journey of fashion and mommy blogging. Have a great weekend, Ada. =)

  22. Those are so cute on you! I have been trying to avoid them too. My current excuse is that I have a baby and she will mess them up.
