Concrete Catwalk // Yellow Light

August 2, 2012

Yellow on the top, light on the bottom… check out the rest of the post below for my very first try at white jeans!

They’ve always seemed just a smidge too refined for my taste, but I tried this particular pair of white skinnies on recently, and totally loved the way they worked.

I added a bold shock of saturated color (duh) and my favorite little hippie heels and vintage bag for a look that felt totally me, and now I’m totally sold.  You can bet you’ll be seeing these well-past Labor Day, and I’m already trying to think up clever variations on how to wear them year-round… Winter white anyone?

Top to Bottom:
Necklace – Vintage (similar)
Bandeau – Nordstrom
Top – Diane von Furstenberg (on sale here, in pale blush)
Jeans – BDG Mid-rise white skinnies
Nude wrap bracelet – Gorjana
Handbag – Vintage, was Mama’s
Heels – Piperlime (similar)

    I love that top! So simple yet so chic :)

    I’m not brave enough to wear white jeans.

    I absolutely LOVE this color combination! Yellow is going to be such a hot color going into Fall. This is a great transitional look, too!

    I love the top, and it looks great with the white jeans. I love the look of white but am always too scared to wear it. I probably have this semi-irrational fear of getting them dirty.

    You definitely rocked the white jeans! And love that top too!

    Ooo! Great take on the white jeans! I’m never brave enough to try. I know I’d stain them in minutes.
