For YEARS I preached how some style rules just shouldn't be broken, and one I stuck to was not wearing white pants before Memorial Day. And here it is the first full week of May and I'm wearing white jeans on the blog! (I also wore this same exact outfit a couple weeks ago, see on Instagram). Why the change of heart? As my friend Rosana said on Twitter last week, by Memorial Day it's just too hot to wear white jeans! Also I think it looks seasonally appropriate when paired with darker colors and cooler weather accessories. Choosing a closed-toe shoe and a longer sleeved blouse in navy shows I'm a purposeful rule breaker!
