I may be known for my eccentric, over-the-top style most days but there are some days when I like to keep it simple. This is one of those occasions.
Simple Summer Style White Jeans
This outfit is 100% retail. Not a fact I’m bragging about by any means. I prefer thrifted or vintage items but I’m not bound to them. When a piece such as this floral blouse catches my eye, sometimes I give in to the retail consumption monster and buy it.
The handbag, shoes, and jeans are all very old and bought at TJ Maxx which used to be one of my favourite shopping destinations before I discovered the joy of thrift shopping.
Tip Top Thrift Shopping Tips
Here is a funny video, an ode to my joy of thrift shopping made possible through the talented Melanie from Bag and a Beret and Sue from a Colourful Canvas. We had such a blast making this video loosely based on my 20 Top Secret Pro Thrift Shopping Tips.
My favourite bits are when I came out of the dressing room wearing what I thought was a great find, and Sue’s honest reaction and also the surprises I found in the pockets of a coat.
Thrifting is always such an adventure!
Did you enjoy the video? Did you learn any valuable tips? ; )
Okay, back to my white jeans…
White jeans were previously a no-go item for me.
Normally white and I do not get along as it washes me out. White on my lower half however, is just fine.
For years I thought white added weight to my bottom half. Not something I need help with. I’ve got that taken care of thank-you-very-much. Especially since I’m not from the generation where big bottoms are fashionable. Funny how times change.
As with everything fit is key, and these ones fit me well.
I think they are meant to be cropped jeans, on people with longer legs than I. No worries though, I simply turned up the cuff once.
Let’s all thank Joseph Shivers who invented lycra. Thanks to you my jeans are super comfy. I did in fact, do a cartwheel in this outfit, they are so comfortable.
I had to edit out the top part as I’d forgotten that the top wasn’t tucked and I flashed much more skin than a family friendly blog should.
Brogues are one of my favourite shoes to wear when my plantar fasciitis isn’t flaring up.
Alway a sucker for a pretty pattern they are usually what catches my eye first when shopping, possibly due to the fact that I used to design patterns for a living.

For a gal that never liked white jeans before I’m surprised how often I’ve managed to wear them. I think it is directly related to the fact that they are so comfortable.
