After some nice sunny weather, we've got some clouds passing through for a couple of days. This is a favorite pairing for this plaid shirt -- with white jeans and light shoes. I've worn the combo previously with my gold smoking slippers, white pointy pumps, and cream booties. This iteration makes me equally happy; I really like how the light gray suede adds a little extra texture and color dimension, plus with the open heel it feels a bit more summery (even when the weather doesn't look it). With the ankle interest (cropped pants with zippers + shoe straps) I kept the rest of the outfit simple, opting to leave the oversized plaid shirt untucked to play further into the cropped proportions. Added giant gold hoops and sequined clutch for a touch of sass-and-glam, and orange lip gloss for a little extra color differentiation.
These new white jeans (and their faded blue sibling I also bought) are the first pair of properly fitting skinnies I've worn in years (!!) as me shrinking had caused all of my previously properly fitting skinny jeans to become baggy/slouchy skinny jeans over the past few years. Which actually worked out nicely with those fits trending. However, I've been wanting to update a couple of them to relaxed skinnies for a more streamlined fluid look, especially in white since I wear white often; plus this slimmer white pair will work much better in fall/winter tucked into tall boots than my other slouchy straight leg pair does. A very welcome addition to my denim wardrobe! Now I can wear 2x as many white jean outfits ^^
