White Denim Leather Weather

It seems that spring finally sprung in New York City. That said, are you a good news first or a bad news first type of person?

The good news is, well, spring has sprung. Obviously. The bad news is most of us — myself included — still have to spend our days indoors knowing it’s 60-plus degrees at long last.

I love wearing white denim before and after you’re traditionally supposed to. It’s like a real-life fashion exam in untraditional style rules; you can tell who stands where based on the side-eyes you’re thrown during your commute.

The morning in which I was finally able to don a blazer and walk out the door without a winter coat was an incredible wardrobe victory in my book. I actually think I skipped home from work this day… Champagne may have been a factor. (Don’t judge; it was Friday.)

On another note, Manhattan squirrels get mighty frisky when the weather warms.

That little handbag-loving attention whore to my left two photos above above crawled into both my and Bianca’s bags on two separate occasions as we posted up on a bench and caught up post-outfit shoot. You’ve never heard two girls shriek more obnoxiously — or sprint 50 yards quicker in heels.

  • White jeans are on my must-buy-for-spring list! Haven’t found the perfect pair yet. Also, seriously!?! about the squirrel! I would freak out. I love me some animals, but a random squirrel in my purse? No thanks!

  • lol – so true about the Manhattan squirrels. I’m always so amazed at how brave they are once the sun is out. And being able to wear a blazer without a coat is definitely a winning situation! I can’t believe it’s going to be nice again today, too. Spring is actually here! Loving your white pants and those amazing shoes.

    • Hooray for spring! I’m so glad it’s nice today, too. Thanks for the comment, Lara!

  • the squirrels in madison square park are SO aggressive!

  • You look great! So excited to see all of your spring ensembles. I am so SO mad at myself for surpassing this fab army green jacket with faux leather sleeves and have kicked myself every day since. Loving the blazer!


    • OMG – they had an army green one? I have reverse buyer’s remorse FOR you. Ugh! Luckily, I’m sure Zara will produce a similar style for fall… Fingers crossed and eyes open!

  • White jeans and leather is an amazing combination I’ve never considered until now! The Pashli is the perfect pop of color against the black and white.

    • I thought the same about my bag! And yes, denim and leather is always a do in my book… 🙂

  • SO cute! I love that blazer with the white jeans and totally loving that bag!!


  • I would never be allowed to wear pants like that because somehow I would spill something horrible on them. That bag however? AH-MAZING.

    • Haha, I have to be very well-behaved on days I wear white pants… This may be TMI, but honestly, as soon as I slip them on, I swear my body feels like it wants to channel PMS. Or perhaps I’m just paranoid. Oh, the life of a lady. 😉

  • I love white denim, any time, any place. Those shoes are fierce, lady! And I still crave your bag!

    • You and me both! Can’t wait to wear white denim non-stop this spring. Looking forward to seeing how you style yours!

  • Absolutely love your heels. Especially with the white cigarette slim jeans!
