I guess if I had actually been invited to a Royal picnic, this would be a good outfit choice. But alas, Kate Middleton has not invited me to a soireé… it’s simply just the best way to describe today’s outfit… 🙂
I am pretty obsessed with cobalt / royal blue. Have had this gingham shirt for awhile – a total steal from Old Navy! – but when I saw these shoes at Topshop, I think my heart actually skipped a beat. (I’m also lusting for these Valentinos!) I paired them with white jeans, and ultimately decided on accessories in ecru, which I actually really like against the white. Keeps the look nice and light, instead of how it might look with a dark belt and bag.
And if you’re looking for the perfect white ankle-length jeans for Spring, look no further than the Paige Denim skyline ankle peg. I buy a pair of these skinnies every year. They have some stretch, but most importantly, the denim is thick enough to hide lumps, bumps, panty lines, etc. Just wear undergarments that match your skin tone, and they will disappear under these jeans. Most white jeans have way too much Lycra, and are too thin = unforgiving. These are perfection! Get a pair, you will not regret it!
