How We Wear Summer Whites!

Hi y’all! Welcome to summer! The season of fun in the sun, pool parties, vacays, margaritas and mojitos! I’m teaming up once again with my Stylish Monday group, and this month’s theme is ‘Summer Whites’! My lovely friends will be styling their favorites for you, so be sure to pop on over to their blogs after you see the sneak peak I’ve posted here. I always get some great fashion and style ideas from these fabulous ladies. I’m also going to share some of my own personal white favorites that will keep you looking light and airy from head to toes. Read on!

My fabulously stylish friends are:


I’ll admit, I’m not the biggest fan of white jeans, though sometimes an outfit just calls for them. The trick for me is all about balance, and finding a way to disguise my pear shape. Long over lean is one of my tried and true strategies for dealing with a pear shape, which is one of the many reasons I love kimonos and long cardigans. Learn more about dealing with a pear shape here. I shared a couple of ideas for white pants in this blog post. As I mentioned, white pants or jeans are a way to add instant refreshment to an outfit.

Graphic Tee and white jeans

My first outfit is a pair of white jeans and my favorite graphic tee from Ruby’s Rubbish – available here – (I’ve had it for years) styled with a colorful kimono. Kimonos are such a fun way to add a burst of happy color to a summer outfit!  Purchase similar styles here:


Denim Jacket with Lace Skirt

The second outfit is a remix of one I styled last summer. The white lace skirt gets a fun refresh with a denim jacket and leopard print belt. It’s a fun way to feel ‘dressed up’ without feeling stuffy. We’ll just call it  informally formal! Whatcha think? Purchase similar styles here:


Blue Kimono

Another outfit featuring a kimono and bright yellow top (purchased last year). I absolutely love, love, love kimonos in the summertime y’all! You can wear them with dresses, shorts, or even as a swimsuit cover-up. The happy colors add a fun pop to the neutral white pants. Purchase similar styles here:


And now for a few fun extras. White and silver are instantly cooling colors – white shoes, handbags and jewelry add a light touch to any outfit. I’m loving this summer’s straw handbags!

  1. It’s my first time visiting your blog and I really enjoyed it. I love the idea of wearing a kimono, for some added color. I’m from the US, but have been living in Europe for the last 8 years. I haven’t seen the kimono look but I’d love to find one. Thanks for all the great ideas.

    1. Thanks for joining in the fun and visiting my blog. You should grab a kimono and start a trend in Europe! Kidding aside, I really do love them in the summertime. They’re a nice breezy accessory.

  2. Thanks for hosting – love to wear white, love it with your kimono. Jacqui Mummabstylish

    I love all your summer whites!
    It’s true that wearing white isn’t for everyone but finding balance in how you wear white!
    Love the kimono with your white jeans!
    I enjoy our monthly collaborations!
