Turning Heads Linkup -White Denim for Fall with Florals

 

By now, you know any color works with denim through out the year. White is no exception! I love the look of my white skinny jeans with soft, colors and florals.

Life Lately

We have had strange weather here lately! 80 degrees one day , in the 60s the next, and then the hurricane brought us dark, windy weather taking out tree branches and leaving them behind on streets and sidewalks. Not a day, by any means for a photoshoot. This day was my kind of day! Sunny, yet a chill in the air.

Today being Election Day, I hope you were able to get out and vote! Mom, my hubby and I voted by mail. I am a bit anxious over all of this and just try myself to find joy in each day without falling victim to everything outside of my control.

We haven’t been going out  much lately, due to my recent recovery from my surgery. I did, however want to take advantage of getting out Saturday, as it was sunny and glorious. We sat overlooking Lake Norman, as we enjoyed lunch in the sun at North Harbour Club. We then went to The Cottage and shared a bottle of wine between the 3 of us. I made my rounds petting all the pups, and one little pup after a few scratches, rolled onto his back for a belly rub. Small things like this make me happy.

This outfit

I initially put this pretty, soft H&M floral blouse with the taupe sweater coat ( c/o Picadilly Canada) and loved the combination. Continuing with a soft palette, I chose my white Denizen/Levi jeans and my suede taupe embroidered booties.

A pop of rich color with my Treesje plum leather handbag would add depth to this look

White jeans really can be fun to style with warm Fall tones as well as Winter whites. Give it a try!

Outfit

Floral blouse- H&M ( love this floral blouse)

cardigan c/o Picadilly Canada ( similar cardigan)

white jeans- Denizen /Levis ( similar and on sale!)

Booties- Marc Fisher ( these not available, but love these booties)

Leather bag- Treesje

    Growing up, it was always a rule not to wear white after Labor day. But I broke that rule a couple years ago and wore (off)white denim jeans with a sweater to the grocery store. I thought I was cute. Then this lady walked over to me and said “Just so you know, you are not suppose to wear white after Labor day!. So I haven’t tried it again since. Haha. I love your look here.

      Hi Lisa. How silly that someone came up to you to say that! You can say, that is no longer a fashion rule! 🙂 thank you!

    Very elegant. I’m so glad the rules about wearing white is out the window. I hate rules, especially about how I dress. lol. I love the blouse. Very nice outfit and one I could definitely see myself wearing. Thanks.

    I love your sweater coat Jess, it looks really good quality. I’ve been looking for something similar to wear over jeans. The floral print top is beautiful! I don’t have a dog but I love to make a fuss of other people’s – while I was at my mum’s my brother brought his little dog to see us. He’s a very yappy dog but very cute 🙂

    Hi Jess! Sorry I’ve been MIA on Tuesdays. The homeschool scheduled amped up this year but I’m still holding on! Anyway, I love your floral and white look for fall. Pairing with the neutrals worked perfectly!

    I pulled out my white jeans this week, too! Lol! They just go with everything, don’t they? I love them with the neutrals and florals you’ve styled here! Great inspiration, Jess! Yes, it’s the little things like petting the pups, isn’t it? We lost our beloved Sergeant two weeks ago to cancer. Totally unexpected and we are saddened beyond belief. Our little Lulu is lost, too, but seems to be coming around. We are on the hunt for a new buddy for her. She just loves to play! Ugh. Thanks for letting me put it all out here–I don’t mean to be a downer.

    Have a great week Jess.
    xx Darlene

    We voted in person today and it took 3 hours, so I wish I had mailed it! Ah well! I love this cardi coat, so pretty and nice for cooler days! It is so pretty with the pop of floral from your blouse.

    Such a chic outfit! I love the fall colors (and the white, of course). It will surely be a momentous time in history today and in the following days! I’m interested to see what happens here on my college campus… I’ve heard rumors that classes might even be cancelled due to the election.
    Hope you are doing well still!

    Miles of smiles,

    I love this color palette: so soft and pretty! I need to pull out my white jeans! Mother in law lives with us and will have the tv on all day but I plan to ignore it the best I can. Planning a little Christmas shopping trip to Target and once it warms up we plan to go outside. I am just glad we live in a smaller town in the south.

    So happy you got out this weekend and got to pet some sweet pups! I’m feeling a bit anxious about today and refuse to turn on the tv!
    Your outfit is so pretty, I love the soft florals in the blouse and the design on your boots is exquisite!

    Jess,

    I also voted by mail and this is going to be an interesting day for sure!
    We lost power for 2 days because of the storm and a massive Georgia pine fell over in our front yard destroying 2 other trees in it’s path.
    Thankfully it didn’t hit the house just made a mess of our front yard.

    Jess, this is a gorgeous fall outfit. I love the soft autumnal tones and your chiffon blouse is just so pretty. Those boots, too! I love the little embroidery detail. I am glad that you are getting out a bit post-surgery. Just make sure to give yourself enough time to heal, my friend! I did the mail in voting thing, too. I am just way too anxious to be in public with crowds of disgruntled voters! I honestly don’t pay much attention to any of the political rigamarole because it is out of my control. I submitted my ballot, that is literally all I can do. The rest is up much higher powers than I!

    I’m glad to see you ignoring that old rule about not wearing white after Labor Day! White is a wonderful color all year round and really showcases your pretty top in the gentle fall light.

    Lovely outfit, Jess! The top in particular is especially pretty. We received our ballot by mail then took it to the drop box at City Hall. I’m a bit nervous about tomorrow, but trying not to think about it. Nothing better than a pup who wants belly rubs! Valentino just started asking for belly rubs this summer as he was approaching 3 years old. I love it when he asks.
