black and white


I own seven pairs of white jeans, each of them slightly different in their cut, length, and comfort.  They're all fail-safe though, appropriate for the most summery activities, from  picnics to breezing around foreign monuments. I tend to wear them casually, like everyone else, with flat leather sandals, but this picture inspires me to amp them up a bit and try them with tough black strappy sandals, kind of like these.

i like this too; the turned rumpled cuff, golden tan, oversized men's shirt and watch, display a casual, yet personal style.

Talk to use about who makes your favorite white jeans (I'm always in the market for a crisp, slim, cropped, totally-non-see-through white pair, personally)

Please post your favorite brands for white jeans. Every time I try a pair on, I'm not happy with them, and they appear flimsy/see-through...

I am working on a post featuring my favorite white jeans. Look for it in the next few days. xx M

Those are the most gorgeous black sandals I've seen in years...I wish someone would knock them off, but with a one-inch heel!
