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.

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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!


  4. 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.

    • 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. 😉
