It’s another beautiful spring day here in Cincinnati, so this gal is getting outside a bit. I hope you have the opportunity to breathe in some fresh air today, too. If so, wouldn’t it be a fun day to pull out those white jeans and style them with a pretty rosy, pink top? That’s what I’m doing today. I’m styling white jeans for spring!
As I looked at my calendar today I realized that Easter is just over a week away. And I suppose most of us will be celebrating it a little differently this year. I plan on providing an entire post next week about how to celebrate Easter at home and ideas for outfits. But the white jeans outfit I’m sharing here will definitely make that list.
Let’s start with this dark rose Italian merino wool polo…because it’s available for 25% off just this one more day. And it’s almost sold out, but not quite (at least as I’m writing this post). Don’t let the “merino wool” throw you. This extremely lightweight sweater top is very breathable and thin, perfect for three seasons.
I’m wearing the Italian merino wool polo in dark rose, but it’s available in other pretty colors, too. In fact, I went ahead and ordered the heather grey, too, because I love this polo so much. I’m wearing a size medium. It fits close to the body, but not at all snug…lots of stretch and oh so soft.
Since you can see them best in the photo above, let’s talk accessories real quick. I kept my jewelry soft and minimal. I was trying to create a very soft look with this dark rose polo. I’m wearing this Kendra Scott Elisa multistrand necklace and Kendra Scott Veronica hoop earrings (25% off at Nordstrom). I purchased my sunglasses last summer and they’re no longer available in this taupe shade. But these are similar…and less expensive! Finally I added a thick leather belt since I wanted to tuck my polo.
I decided to purchase new white jeans this spring after wearing the same pair for three seasons. They had gotten dingy, the way white clothing sometimes does over time. I always size up in white jeans for the best fit and coverage. Talbots jeans just always work great for me, and these did not disappoint. I’m wearing an 8 in the high waist denim jeggings. But Talbots has good white denim in most of their jean fits and silhouettes. They’re a nice thickness and feature nude pocket linings, which I love.
This outfit right here, gals, is a good example of why you gotta, gotta, gotta have a blue denim jacket in your closet. No other jacket would create this classically casual vibe quite the same way. I’ve had my denim jacket for well over 20 years, so it’s a worthy investment – but not that expensive. Pennies per wear!
I apologize for my collar being a wadded up in all these photos. Ha! I need a stylist with me on these photo shoots, evidently.
Notice that my leather belt, tote bag and pointy toe slingbacks are not all the exact same color. That’s perfectly fine. In fact, the multiple shades of brown just add a sense of texture to the outfit. But I do try to keep the colors in the same undertone, and these are all brown with a warm honey undertone. Make sense? I’m loving these pointy toe slingbacks. I find them to fit true to size, comfortably. And they’re easy to walk in and feature a memory foam insole.
My pointy toe slingbacks also come in black, coral pink and ivory. I’m loving these closed toe shoes since I haven’t had a professional pedicure yet this season…and who knows when I’ll get one!
Psst! Here’s a great faux leather alternative to my leather tote bag.

Blessed for My Day
In the same way that God is not taken by surprise with this COVID-19 pandemic, Jesus was not taken by surprise when He was betrayed, arrested, abused and crucified unjustly. His life was not taken from Him. He gave it willingly. Why? Because He loves us and He loves and obeyed the Father.
Jesus sacrificed His own life for mine and yours. He desperately wanted to reunite us with the God who created us. Ahh, what love! Let’s take time today to thank Him for willingly giving His all so that we could live eternall with Him. But let’s do more than speak our thanksgiving. Let’s live it with obedience, faith and gratitude.
And as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside, and on the way he said to them, “See, we are going up to Jerusalem. And the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn him to death and deliver him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified, and he will be raised on the third day.” ~ Matthew 20:17-19
