My memory may be too fogged with blogs at this point, but doesn't it seem like "white" is a trend every spring? Along with florals and bright colors and soft pastels, there are colors that just speak to us at certain times of year, no matter what we saw on the runways.
Personally, I shy away from the pastels, but actually tend to gravitate towards white all year long. Don't you? No matter the temperature (or your skin tone), a great white piece (or an all-white ensemble) can make you feel fresh, polished, and extremely confident.
Why confident? Because let's be honest: the second we put on something white (especially if it's silk or leather) we're instantly more aware of our surrounds. Will I be spilled on? Can I sit on that? Are there any puddles today? Strutting down the street in your finest whites lets passersby know that you're totally together and adult enough to wear white with ease. (Even if you're not.)
It can sound daunting, but I absolutely love a white-on-white look built around the perfect white jeans (which for me, are the Paige skyline). With an elegant white silk top (like the classic Equipment sleeveless blouse) or cozy knit and just about any shoe you want -- it's insta-chic, I promise.
PS: The Mrs. Meyer's candle isn't exactly white (or wearable) but it's my favorite spring scent and an unbeatable price as far as good-smelling candles go ($12).
