Wearing White Jeans Before Memorial Day (Do What Makes You Happy)
Yes, I'm wearing white jeans BEFORE Memorial Day. May as well make "Rule-Breaker" or "Daredevil" my middle name right? But seriously, what's the big deal? I never understood the "no white before Memorial Day" rule anyway. You should wear whatever you want whenever you want, as long as it makes you happy! And last week, wearing my new Kate Spade Cutwork Denim jeans is what made me happy. After getting these bad boys as a gift, I played dress up for about an hour. I realized that even though they're jeans, these pants can easily be dressed up for a classy event -- take my outfit above for example. By pairing the jeans with a nice blouse, simple heels, and a clutch, I transformed what would otherwise be a casual pant into a classy ensemble. Whereas below, I've paired the pant with a cotton tank (which is actually a tied-up dress), flat sandals, and a bucket bag, going in a much more casual direction. But I digress, the moral of today's post is simple -- sometimes it's best not worry about society's fashion "rules" and instead just wear what will put a smile on your face!

P.S. Both of the tops in this blog post are under $15! The first top is a shockingly low $9. I can't tell you how many compliments I get each time I wear that piece. Not bad for $9 right? And the second top, which is $13, is actually a dress that I tied up to use as a tank top. So really it's a 2-for-1!
