Two Teens And Their Mama: White Pants & Shop My Closet Week 11

White Pants & Shop My Closet Week 11


And we're back!  Welcome to week three of Style Perspectives.  Our link up continues to grow, thanks to you wonderful ladies!  We loved seeing everyone's shades of pink. Head over to The Blended Blog to view the top two looks from last week, and find out how Sarah is wearing her signature style:  white pants. If you haven't entered our giveaway, today's the last day so be sure to scroll to the bottom. 

Until a few years ago, I didn't own any white pants.  Honestly, they kind of scared me.  Every pair I tried was too thin, and I figured I'd spill on them within the first five minutes.  Maybe I was too old for this trend?  Finally, I turned to my ever faithful Loft.  And found not one, but two that were perfect.  No lumps and bumps, and designed for the more, ahem.....womanly figure.  Be sure to wait for them to go on sale, because everything is always on sale at Loft if you're patient.


I wore these modern cropped jeans with a Lush tunic and American Rag fringe booties.  The yellow bag was a clearance find at Charming Charlie last fall and I cannot wait to bust it out for spring.


Even I can't believe I'm on week 11 of shopping my closet.  I've gotten rid of so many things that don't work on me, but there's still so much more to do!

Wednesday


In addition to my sweater addiction, apparently I've got a vest problem too. This felt very festive with the red Toms and colorful necklace.

Thursday


This tunic sweater has now found a new home at the thrift shop.  The lace detail was cute, but it just made me look frumpy.

Saturday


Keeping the purple sweater company is this fella.  My husband asked "where's Waldo" when I got dressed.  As a general rule, I don't go to Mr. Jeans and a Tshirt for fashion advice, but I had to agree with him on this one.

Sunday


I'm running out of winter-ish dresses, so spring better arrive soon.

Monday


Oops, another vest.  I'm almost done with them. I think.


Weren't these ladies lovely in their shades of pink last week?  I'm excited to visit everyone's blog today and get some great ideas for styling my white pants.

  7. It looks like the sun was shining in the photo of the white pants - and I love the yellow purse! I like the first look with the vest, pretty white shirt and red toms best - and I've realized I don't own a single pair of white pants!

    1. You would look great in white pants Susan! It wasn't really sunny - a cloudy day with a brief bit of light filtering through!

  9. I am with you on thin white pants - what are companies thinking (other than saving money!). I like your pop of yellow! Your church look is my favorite.

  10. I still have a white pants fear from when I was in 8th grade and spilled orange all over my white outfit in front of everyone. Oh, the horrors!
    Your Saturday outfit is my favorite!

  13. Your white jeans look is very modern. I like it on you. 11 weeks! Amazing friend! Keep it going and working on that closet. I'm rooting for you!

  14. My white jeans are Loft too and they are the best. Love your white jeans look and all your awesome outfits this week!! So stylish you are Lana!!

  15. You are right, finding the right pair is key. Mine are the GAP but I will have to try loft next time I am near a loft store.

    1. I used to wear Gap jeans all the time - I should probably give them a try again!

  16. Yellow always reminds me of spring and sunny days, which I am hopeful to see in the next couple of weeks. I love the pop of color to your outfit and am sure that little purse will be used over and over again. Woohoo! for finding white pants that look and feel good to you. I was scared of purchasing them as well but they have been easy to care for because you can just bleach them.

    1. I always forget about bleaching white pants - great suggestion!

  17. Job well done on the shopping your closet (and thinning to what you really love!) I am on the lookout for another pair of white jeans so thanks for the tip on looking at Loft! I keep seeing them recommended but I've never tried their jeans.

  18. I got my white jeans at Loft too! And love all of your outfits, I decided this morning as I was putting on my chambray shirt, that I'm ready to commit to a nicer one and need to get rid of the one I have! Look at me making decisions...and adding more to my wardrobe...hey wait! hehe. But yea I noticed that I have WAY too many t-shirts and not enough blouses and shirts, going to work on that.

  21. I need to look at Loft for some white jeans! I have cropped ones, but I'd like some full length ones. That striped dress is so pretty!

  22. Loved the striped dress and denim jacket! Maybe I'll get brave and get some white jeans. I worry they'll be covered in paw marks though.

  23. I agree with the two you got rid of and since I have the one with lace it will be gone from there too! I cannot believe you are still shopping in your closet! I would have been out of clothes at week 2! I'm not a shopper though. I hate it most of the time.
