White Denim in the Winter Challenge

White Denim...gasp! I know! But when Carrie said lets show the world that you can wear white denim after Labor day (Anytime Sept through April...cuz go ask your granny thats when you are supposed to retire white shoes and pants and all that jazz). You know I am competitive and will take on any challenge...I tried to drink a gallon of milk in college...a group of boys dared me...I didn't make it.

So when she threw it out there I said W.T.Heck I'll take a stab at it, and I'll WIN (this time!). This wager was before a blizzard hit, the streets were dry and free from snow....well here we are, a blizzard later and then more snow this weekend (yes more!) SO my challenge was quite a bit different than those in sunny 75 winter in southern California - But have no fear, I'm Here!!!

Here's my wintery take on light pales & whites to be a classic look that no season need put a limit on.





White Jeans - Levis. Striped Top - J.Crew. Grey Layering Tank - Nordstrom. Red Tunnel Scarf - Limited. Coat - Banana Republic. Wedges, Red Cocktail Ring - F21. Bracelets - Vintage & Tiffany's 

Will you be rocking WHITE DENIM before winter is over?????

Be sure to check out all the other amazing bloggers tackling this White Denim challenge!!! Here are the others posting theirs today:

Lyddie from Chic on the Cheap - http://chic-onthe-cheap.blogspot.com/

And tomorrow be sure to see my favorite Chicago blogging Buddy: Anna!

Editors note: I only wore this to take these pictures, I would have ruined the heck out of these jeans had I ventured anywhere! Puddles and black slushy mush snow inches deep would have been the death of them!! If the were skinny jeans I would have run all over town, because this change from dark to light was such a welcome change! But you can believe I'll be sporting this for real & real soon! Mother Nature so dry streets please!

  4. You looked great. I wore my white denim to meet a friend for breakfast and as all the snow was melting, the bottom of the jeans turned black with all the puddles and such. I had to change into something else before heading to my superbowl party. But it was fun!

  14. This is great!! The red accessories really pop against the light colors. I'm in Chicago too( participating on Wednesday!), I was worried about how it would come together in all the snow but I was pleasantly surprised, white on white is a good look I think! P.S. Cracked up at your editors note - I totally only wore mine for the pictures too - no way I'd venture through puddles and piles of dirty snow in those babies!!
