Wear Now, Wear Later: White Jeans

You know that old “no white after Labor Day” rule? Well, I just don’t buy it. White is one of my favorite colors to wear. Especially for a brunette, it really stands out against my skin and hair tones. In fact, a white on white ensemble is one of my go-to’s.

One of my favorite white pieces to wear are my white jeans and, darn it, there’s just no reason they can’t transition into fall. In summertime, I gravitate towards soft muted colors, mostly neutrals in beige, tan or white. When fall rolls around, mixing in rich jewel tones lengthens the wear time of my summer favorites.

In today’s post, I switched out summer trends like this bell-sleeve top, tassel earrings and block heel sandals, for some cooler fall pieces. I purchased this heavy knit cardigan at this past weekend’s ModCloth pop-up shop in Pittsburgh (did I mention how awesome it was to try on their clothes in store? Well it was!). I cannot wait until it comes in. It’s super cozy and also comes in a deep forest green and charcoal grey. I know it’s going to be one of those pieces that I throw on for everything.

Quick note: If you’re in the Pittsburgh area, you should totally check out the ModCloth pop-up shop (open now through the 27th). The girls are really helpful in sizing, and finding pieces that fit your style. It was a ton of fun!

I added riding boots to the “Later” look, but ankle booties would work just as well. Include a leather-banded watch, some chunky link bracelets, and an oversized leather tote for a seasonal look. Another great tip is to try a bold lip color, like this MAC lipstick in Rebel. It’s one of my favorite fall colors, and looks much different on than in the tube.

You can shop all of the pieces I used in the outfits below at the bottom of this post, if you see something you like.

Are you guys transitioning any of your own favorites into fall?

  • Exactly one week ago, @attybernard and I went on our last coffee date before spending the rest of the day cooking and cleaning in preparation for our little girl. Something about that day just made us feel like she wasn’t going to be long. The very next day she joined our world, and these have been the best 6 days of my entire life. 💕 #newmom #newparents #newbornbaby #pittsburghphotographer #thehappynow #thatauthenticfeeling #seekthesimplicity #abmhappylife #theeverydayproject #verilymoment #darlingmovement #littlestoriesofmylife #momentslikethese
  • Settling into our family of three, and this guy is the best teammate a girl could ask for. I never knew I could feel so much love—I could burst. #newparents  #thehappynow #livebeautifully #postitfortheaesthetic #inspiremyinstagram #chooselovely #thatauthenticfeeling #seekthesimplicity #abmhappylife #theeverydayproject #verilymoment #darlingmovement #feelfreefeed #littlestoriesofmylife #momentslikethese #postitfortheaesthetic
  • This girl entered our worlds yesterday afternoon—exactly two weeks ahead of schedule and right at the end of the Pats game—just letting mommy and daddy know who’s gonna be in charge of the schedule from now on. #newbabygirl
  • I hear we have some snow coming Pittsburgh, friends! 💕 Am I the only weirdo who is actually excited about this? You can find me in all the cozy sweaters and blankets, snuggled up on the couch. 😍 #theblogsocieties #shopstylecollective #wkloveyourcloset #pittsburghblogger #discoverunder5k #discoverunder10k #pghfashion #pghblogger #stylebloggers
  • I finally got a vanity at age 31. I never knew what I was missing! ☺️ #husbandwin #ikeahack #affordabledecor
  • Hard to believe how soon our little one will be joining us. Feeling all sorts of emotions, but mostly ready to meet her. I’m curious—any other moms to be out there? If so, when are you due? And those of you who are already moms, what words of wisdom would you share with those of us about to become mamas, too? #theblogsocieties #shopstylecollective #wkloveyourcloset #pittsburghblogger #discoverunder5k #discoverunder10k #pghfashion #pghblogger #stylebloggers #37weeks 📷: @julieanne514
