Winter White-Out

Fashion traditionalists state that you're not supposed to wear white after Labor Day, and it's never been clear when wearing the color is "allowed" again. Memorial Day, perhaps? Regardless, that's rubbish! (Isn't rubbish such a funny word?) These days, white is A-OK even in cold months. There's even a name for it: "winter white." I just bought these white jeans and have already worn them twice. To keep things seasonally appropriate, I paired them with a grey wool blazer and an ironic graphic tee. Cream-colored bottoms are another option if bright-white feels too bold. If you're on the fence about whether you can pull of white in February, go for it! And feel free to enjoy that naughty twinge of pride from breaking the (style) rules. 
Pants: Ann Taylor, Blazer: The Limited, Purse: Melie Bianco (all pre-loved from Rung Boutique); Oxfords: Urban Outfitters; Tee & Bracelet: Forever 21
Taking a suggestion from local blogger Cassie of Style Cassentials, I added the purse for a pop of color.
A lone patch of snow to remind us that Old Man Winter is still lurking around. But it is February, so I guess technically he's not trespassing.


  1. Hi, Ruby! I'm absolutely brand new to blogging but I've been around the STL scene for a little bit now and know a couple of the faces. I found your blog via the STLFW "Bloggers of STLFW" page.
    I LOVE this look! I have a pair of white oxfords that would look smashing with an all-white get up. Thanks for the inspiration! I hope to see you out sometime!


    1. Hi Jill, thanks so much for your comment! White oxfords sound super cute. I hope to see you around too! Welcome to St. Louis!
