WOTD: Navy, White and Color all over

Quick Work Outfit of the Day post...sorry for the photo quality.  I was in a mad rush this AM and only had time to snap with my iPhone.

I love white pants in the summer.  I have had this pair for a million years and I just love them.  Shopping for white pants is not an easy matter....they are always too tight or thin or loose.  But when you find the right pair you want them to last FOREVER!!!  But, the nature of white pants is that they attract dirt....and even if you meticulously wash them or dry clean them, they always start to look dingy.  These are probably in their last sad.  I've been on the search for a new pair all summer and no luck yet.  These are a thicker weight acetate blend and they are lined....they are dress pants and need to be dry cleaned.  When I bought them 4 years ago, they came with a matching blazer....which became a casualty of a red wine spill at happy hour about 2 years ago.  But, the pants stayed a fixture in my summer work wardrobe.  I wear them with different suiting jackets...usually black or my personal favorite navy!  I love navy and white nautical, classic, and the quintessential summer color combo for me.  This jacket is from an Ann Taylor dress suit...just classic navy cotton stretch twill.  I tied the look together with this voluminous bright shirt from Ann Taylor Loft.  This is a very thin (but not see through) cotton and is great for hot summer days when I am in and out of accounts all day.  I topped the outfit off with my newest JCrew shoe acquisition -- the Julienne Leather Heels in bronzed avocado.....They are so comfortable!!!

How are you dealing with this heat?  What are your summer fashion staples?  How do you wear your white pants?



  1. I love white pants/jeans too. They just look so crisp and clean (at least when I first start out) :) My favorite way to wear them is usually with stripes or some sort of nautical look.
