Style: Summer Clearance Whites

Paige jeans, Rebecca Taylor top, Oliver Peoples sunglasses,
Azzedine Alaia handbag, Chan Luu necklace (old),
Pedro Garcia sandals (different color)

Now that Labor Day has come and gone, the “rules’ say I shouldn’t wear white pants. I can see why because on September 2nd, the weather abruptly changed from stiflingly hot to pleasant with cooler evenings. To me, though, now is the perfect time to wear white pants because it was way too hot to wear them in July and August and due to my tendency to kick water up the back of my legs, way too wet in May and June.

It seems like every year I end up buying a new pair of white jeans-sometimes it’s because the styles have changed, other times because my size had changed. This year I thought I’d be able to use my pair from last year and wore them when I visited California, but then I got a stubborn stain that wouldn’t come out despite vigorous stain removal treatments. Luckily, it happened in July, and white jeans had gone on deep clearance (less than 50% of the original price) so I didn’t hesitate to pick up this pair from Paige (that and because I love the double zippers on them!)

I’m also crazy about this Rebecca Taylor top-to me, it’s the epitome of summer-light and breezy. Right now, it’s also on deep discount at the Rebecca Taylor website. Paired with white denim, a casual necklace, tote, and sandals, I feel like I’m ready for a transition-to-fall day
