White:White

Aren’t you glad that the old adage about wearing the color white has finally been tossed out the window? I know I AM! Finally, no more mind-numbing banter about the importance of only wearing the white after Memorial Day, yet before Labor Day! You can wear white any time you choose, and for me, there’s no time like the present! Of course living in a milder climate has helped…but I digress…
It’s no secret that I bat for ‘Team Bold Colour’ all day every day (examples here, here, and here), yet for me, the color white can be just as bold and piercing as citron.
White is crisp and fresh. Depending on how it is styled, white really can pack a colorful punch.
Having a healthy obsession with monochrome styling (see examples here and here), it’s not shocking that I love wearing white in exactly the same way right?! LOL!
Well today’s look actually offers a slightly different variation. Did you catch it?
You see, I felt a strong need to wear this pair of knit coral socks with this crochet skirt and pair of strappy sandals. Do you remember? I sounded off a warning last month on tumblr that I would be wearing more socks on trend. Why? Because I have a stock pile that have never been worn - this makes absolutely no sense. Plus, I’m a woman of my word!

More sock love for your viewing pleasure previously blogged here, here, and here.

  1. Happy Anniversary to you and your hubby, Dear Joi!
    Like you, I have a huge affinity toward white. I even have a Pinterest board dedicated to it. Even when that old adage was held true, I never followed it. I have a wide variety of white tops that I wore and wear all year long. I always feel refreshing when I wear the non-color. You look fun and adventurous. Keep it coming!

  5. Happy Anniversary! I am a big lover of the socks with heels trend and it's a great way for us to be able to wear our open-toed shoes and sandals throughout the year. Love it!

    1. Hi Cherie, thank you!!! I love this concept of wearing cute socks with open toe shoes, and it after it is so called 'out of style', I'll still be wearing them :))
