Beyond the Pale

May 11, 2016

I love seeing the day stretch out further and further into the evening hours.ย It makes me feel so much more alive having those precious extra hours of sunlight. It’s funny, when I lived in Texas I absolutely adored autumn because of the cool evenings which brought much needed relief from the months of heat, but since living in Seattle, and now Dublin, my preference has switched to the spring time for the opposite reason. I crave the warmth of the sun and the cheerfulness of the fresh flowers.

That’s how I felt last week when I wore this look. It’s still very cool here in Dublin, but the sun was shining and the temperature had crept up that day making it seem so wrong to wear black. I decided it was the perfect day to unpack the white skinnies and some of my lighter blouses.

I found these jeans a couple of summers ago after a long, long search for a pair. Finding the right pair of white skinny jeans may be one of the most difficult fashion searches you ever do. I tried on dozens of them before finding a pair I didn’t think made me look like a beached whale, and I finally found it in these AGs.

For those of you still looking, my biggest suggestions would be:

  • try on as many pairs as you can stand
  • look for thick material that still has a good amount of stretch
  • look for a pocket that sits higher on your bum, instead of low or to the side

If you aren’t able to find one you really like, then don’t give up hope. Just keep looking and trying until you find the perfect fit for you. It will come. Nearly every brand comes out with at least one white skinny jean a season, and yours is out there! Happy shopping!
