Sunday Styles no. 29

Ok, ok. I know. I didn't update much this past week. Forgive me! I was in NYC for work and barely had time to do anything but that...work, that is. So, I'm getting back to business this week with our Sunday Styles. This Sunday, I'm going for something comfy and laid back.

Even though the weather was super warm yesterday, it's cloudy and a bit chilly today (relatively speaking...it's going to be 70 today, but that seems chilly when we're talking LA in May. I know, I know. World's smallest violin.)

Anyway, to keep in the spring swing, I've opted for what I like to call the "Fresh Off the Yacht" look - F.O.Y. (Insert horribly un-PC Asian joke here about being a F.O.B. - for those who don't know what a F.O.B is, please see the various & humorous definitions here that may or may not really hit the nail on the head.) Clean, classic, and no-fuss.


Also, white jeans. I've finally given in to my fear of white jeans. I have a silly (but totally logical) fear of wearing white bottoms because I have the tendency to sit on floors, lean on walls, and wipe my hands on my pants. I know. The last one is pretty childish. At least I'm not wiping my nose on my sleeve. I suppose if I stopped eating things with my hands as often, I wouldn't run into this problem nearly as much...but I'll never stop.

I just realized I'll be going to a few BBQs today. Good grief, I really hope there are napkins on hand.

But I digress. I've finally invested in a pair of white jeans. Husband Charles is triumphant. He's been bugging me to get a pair for months now. I have no idea why, but he seems to think it's a look that's very me. The verdict is still out. I'm slowly starting to get used to being blinded when looking down.

So, there ya have it. I'll spend the rest of the day being irrationally cautious about where I'm sitting, but will look fabulous being paranoid. Yay?

Hope you're all having a fantastic Cinco de Mayo! xo!

A Note About the Clothes: J. Crew Factory Two-Pocket Chambray Shirt, AG Stevie Destroyed Jeans (White) (these actually might be the Stevie ANKLE Destroyed Jeans, but I can't seem to locate them) , Madewell Sidewalk Skimmer in Suede (Crystal Blue)

  1. love this outfit. Very classic and clean. I have a fear of white jeans too. They make me feel vulnerable to mishaps :)

    1. Thanks, Tina!
      Trying to class it up when I can. :)

      OMG, I'm so glad I'm not alone in my white-jean-aphobia.

      I'm happy to report, however, that despite a lot of BBQs, several dog scampering about and jumping up on me (I can't say no to cute dogs), and even some outdoor furniture sitting, my white jeans are not ruined.
      They survived!

      ...but I still have my oxyclean ready to go! :D

      Hope you had a fantastic Cinco de Mayo!

      xo!
