White jeans are a wardrobe staple

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links. If you use my affiliate link, I may receive a small commission.

Hi there,

I think one of the most important staples to a wardrobe is white jeans. Remember back in the day when everyone use to say you can’t wear white after Labor Day, well not no more! That’s old school! You can wear white whenever you want. Of course it is more popular in spring and summer.

I myself love white jeans or capris. You can dress them up or down. I can dress the jeans up to wear them to work with a cute blouse or dress them down with slip on sneakers and a tee shirt.

White jeans are so versatile. I’m going to show you some outfits with the jeans and jean capris. I’ll also include links if your interested in purchasing them.

This first look is great for a night out or to wear to work. I dressed it up with my pearl flats and a cute clutch. I linked a similar top. This brand of jeans are my favorite. They are not see through and are comfy.

This next outfit is with white jean capris. These are great for a more casual look but you could dress it up with wedges or heels. I like wearing these when it’s to hot to wear jeans but not hot enough for shorts.

Top link: Top – only available in plus size now

This next look I dressed up with a pair of wedges. You could also dress it down with sneakers. I have both ways posted to give you ideas on how to style this look.

I hope you can get yourself some white jeans or capris or already have them in your closet. It’s a great alternative to regular blue jeans and they make an outfit pop with color!

Sip and Style at the Loft

Hi there,

I hosted my first Sip and Style at the Loft! I was so excited for this event. It was held at the Paramus Park mall in New Jersey. I invited my friends and family. The staff at the Loft couldn’t be any nicer and easier to work with. I was couldn’t wait to see their spring line, it just came out. When I first got to the Loft, it was all set up with snacks and drinks. Perfect combination eating, drinking and shopping! I love all three.

Next the guests started to arrive. It was great to see everyone and share this special night with them. We were ready to start shopping!

The Loft winter sale items

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links. If you use my affiliate link, I may receive a small commission

Hi there,

I don’t know about you but I love a good sale. The Loft usually has a 40% off sale but this weekend it’s 50% off and they had a bonus sale of $10 and under! I’m going shopping, who’s with me?? 🙋🏻‍♀️

I’m going to show you some of my winter favorites that I either brought or tried on at the Loft. I will attach the links if your interested in browsing or buying them. O.k. let’s get started!!!!

This mixed stripe sweater comes in blue and sunflower yellow. I couldn’t decide between the two but I did get the blue since it’s my favorite color. I paired it with jeans and boots but you could wear it with dress pants to wear to work or out and about! This top is soft and comfortable.

Sweater link

This next top is a pearlized bell sleeve shirt. I love the look of pearls, it makes the top look delicate and feminine. The bell sleeves are a great touch. This is another top you could wear with jeans, dress pants or even a skirt. I also linked the dark denim leggings I wore.

Pearlized top link

Jeans link

I just love this pattern on this next sweater. This is a cute winter sweater. It is so warm and cozy! It’s not a tight turtleneck. I don’t know about you, but I don’t like the feeling when they are tight around my neck. It has side slits on the cuff. I wore these with dark grey jeggings.

Turtleneck sweater

Leggings grey

Here comes another blue favorite of mine!! This cable sweater is so pretty and comfy.  I just love it! It’s a mock turtleneck so again it’s not tight around your neck. It also comes in whisper white. I have worn this top to work with dress pants and here seen with jeans.

Stitchy cable sweater link

This is another type of pearlized mixed media tops. It has a slight touch of the pearls on the sleeves. This comes in a navy blue color. I really like how lightweight this top is. It would be great for spring or summer too! I tried it on with the leggings but you could totally wear it out or to work.

Pearlized mixed media top link

I didn’t try this one on but I have been eyeing it up for Valentines Day.  How cute is this sweater!

Stripes in the park! 

The outfit I wore was a casual outfit that is lightweight, comfortable and stylish too!!  I had lots of errands to do on my day off. This was a great outfit to do it in. The shorts feel like silk and have cute tasils. The v-neck tshirt is so lightweight. I wore my sketchers slip ons to run around in. 

 I tried a different location to take my picture. I headed to the park with the kids for some fun and the picture. I’m still trying to get the hang of taking these pictures!! I’m not one for selfies but I’m getting there. 


Hope you enjoyed this look. Check out the links below to shop this look:

It’s super cute and you can dress it up or down. I wore it to the office today with a turquoise cardigan and necklace. At night I wore the jean jacket to make it more casual.

A blogger and her mirror! 

Hi there,

I decided to buy a full length mirror since I didn’t have one (can you believe it) to take pictures in my outfits. I think my family is sick of me asking them to take pictures!  They have been more than helpful. So I started thinking of where to put the mirror,  I didn’t want to see a mess of stuff behind it. I carried it around my house and it is quite heavy. Do I put it in my bedroom, the Dining Room or Family Room? I see other bloggers have them and everything looks so well organized behind them.  I ended up just having a plain background for now. I will figure it out this weekend!

I found a place to put the mirror, then I had to think about how I’m going to hold my phone. What angle is best? Do I just show the outfit, do I include my face, how is the lighting, how do I hold the phone, things you don’t normally think of.  I give credit to bloggers who make it look so easy! I’m sure at one point they all went though this.  Listed below is the outfit I am wearing in this picture. I took a few pictures to show you.

My outfit is white jeans which is a staple for the spring and summer and a gingham off the shoulder top. These tops are very popular this year.  I topped it off with my Addias sneakers to make it a casual look.

Hope you enjoy them!
