The white jeans I'm wearing here have seen a lot of action lately (so much that I've been reluctant to get them hemmed because they'll be out of my closet for a few weeks). While I'm still going to do a more detailed review of them, I just wanted to say that I have been really impressed with how wonderfully they've held up through multiple wears and a wash so far. They're the 7FAM Slim Illusion Skinny in Stark White, and the fabric really keeps its shape nicely throughout a couple days of wear--no sagginess is evident even after extended wear. For those of you looking for a pair of flattering and comfy white jeans for the summer, I'd highly recommend these. I went with the smaller of the two sizes I generally wear, which was recommended to me based on the stretchiness of this fabric.



  1. I love the top, I saw this at J. Crew, and fell in love. The combination of navy and green is just perfect, such a classic preppy combination. Maybe because the Spring weather finally hit, I've been wearing white a lot too, from white blouses, blazers, to denim, but I'll have to be very careful with them since I haven't found a solution to removing stains yet. You look so classy and chic here, I love your style!

  2. That sweater is so gorgeous, I love the blingy details!

  3. I love that sweater and how you through in a punch of bright color with the shoes. Beautiful!

  4. I'm definitely going to look into those jeans! You look amazing!

  5. I love your style! So Pretty and Chic!

  6. Love the rhinestone necklace here. Really gives the look a little something extra. :)

    2013 is hopefully the year where I will get a Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Mini bag. Hopefully! Love yours!

  7. I love your white jeans but am totally obsessed with that great J Crew sweater! The embellishments are so fun and I LOVE that you don't have to wear a necklace.

  8. Cute outfit. I've been searching high and low for a cute navy blazer and you hit the jackpot! How long ago did you get yours from H&M?
