This OOTD post is loooong overdue. I wore this look to day 5 (I think) of NYFW. Incorporating white or (as all the fashionistas call it) winter whites has been a big trend during the fall/winter months and I wanted to give it a try.I haven’t worn a pair of white jeans in a very long time and there’s a reason for that. I’m one of those people that when wearing white jeans pay extra close attention to where I sit and look at my jeans to make sure that there are no dirt marks on them. I’m so paranoid but I managed to keep these some what clean. Since it was snowing earlier in the day, gray spots from the puddles were on the bottom part of my jeans. I don’t know how they even got there since I was careful when walking (sad face). Anyway I got these jeans on sale from Old Navy and I love the fit of their Rockstar jeans. It’s the perfect skinny jean! I’ve been into wearing chiffon hybrid tops. I love how this top from Missguided is very casual on the top then at the bottom is the chiffon, which gives it a more dressier look. Since I was centering my look around white, I decided to pair this look with a gray coat and bag and then added a minor pop of color with a purple/grey scarf. Btw, I still don’t know how to properly wear a blanket scarf as you can tell by my first picture. Ha! The key to wearing whites or a somewhat all white outfit is to break up the color by adding black or subtle hints of color-nothing too bright. I was originally going to incorporate more white to this look but I just ended up adding more grey, so I might call this my “50 Shades of Grey” look as oppose to “Winter Whites”. It sounds better :).

I’m also linking up with my friend Monica from Jersey Girl, Texan Heart. Be sure to check out her post if you want to join the link up or discover some new bloggers.
