Slouchy Days

I am sorry to those who are still wearing mittens, but yesterday was deliciously balmy. (Don't worry, when it's 115 degrees here in July you will have your revenge). 70 degrees with a very light breeze simply requires finding a patio to sit back and enjoy a tasty beverage, so off I went in my sunny day outfit: Minimalist color palette of white, navy and nude. I love my slouchy crepe pants (Anthro sale!), tissue-weight t-shirt and linen blazer. I was going to wear a heel, but the idea of wearing a sandal made me giddy, so there you have it ;) I know, I know, white after Labor Day is taboo, but I have never taken kindly to restrictions and, did I mention, it was so sunny!

Urban Oufitters blazer and ring, Stem t-shirt, Daughters of the Liberation pants, Steve Madden sandals, Ted Baker purse, Dogeared "Karma" necklace

I would have posted a close-up of the sparkle-encrusted sandals, but my feet were so alarmingly white, I couldn't get over it!

What are your thoughts on white after Labor Day and what item(s) of clothing puts you in a great mood?


  1. Why does veryone keep going on about this gorgeous weather?? It's so unfair!! I wish I could wear what you're wearing and not be freezing cold :(. I still have to wear mittens. And a quilted coat. It's making outfit posts outdoors nearly impossible.


  2. The weather in L.A. is amazing too! I am mildly obsessed with you pants...they are so perfect! Hope you have a good day! xo

  3. I love every single thing about this look. From the white blazer and t to the pants and the shoes. Those pants are fabulous!! (and so is your hair btw)


  4. Jealous of the weather, doll! And I love your fun, slouchy pants -- they're so fun and super flattering.

  5. cute bag :)

  6. It's been about 9 celcius degrees over here the past few days. Gladly not too cold, since I really dislike taking photo's outside in the cold.
    But I really like your outfit! Can't wait to wear something like that also in May

  7. Totally jealous. We're supposed to have another wave of snow coming in on Thursday. BOO.

  8. I am sooooo jealous of your balmy weather and beautiful spring outfit! It is positively freezing here!! I am all for white after Labor Day and my favorite mood boosting outfit is this beautiful watercolor patterned silk dress my boyfriend bought me years ago. The pretty shades in it can lift any bad mood. So can't wait to wear it in a few months! xo style, she wrote

  9. You look so simple and pretty!
    Love your purse!

  10. Thanks ya'll
    And @S,SW: that dress sounds awesome!

  11. I know about the weather.. it was absolutely perfect here yesterday. Looks like we're on the same wavelength about slouchy navy pants! :) I love this look, and I don't think it's taboo to wear white after labor day either.
