Black and White, and Already Worn All Over

Thank goodness it's Friday! Today kicks off the Memorial Day weekend and hopefully for many of you, a few days away from work! Memorial Day is one of my favorite holidays. To me, this weekend signifies the start of summer and of course, summer fashion. When it comes to a summer wardrobe, there is a popular notion that Memorial Day kicks off the summer white trend. Many believe it is "uncouth" to wear white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day.

I'm not sure who makes the rules of fashion, but many have seem to disregard this notion that "white isn't acceptable till after Memorial Day." I don't know what it is about this spring, but I have seen more white the past month or so then I have in years. It probably has something to do with the harsh, blistery winter that we had. Many are ready to put the winter and spring behind us, and quickly fast forward to summer. 

In honor of being a rebel and wearing white before this weekend, I paired my new H&M tunic with an old favorite of mine, white jeans. White jeans are the true versatility of fashion, as they can be worn with any color, even white!

I broke out my favorite pair of white jeans, from a local boutique, for a Sunday Funday in Georgetown this past weekend. I searched high and low for the perfect summer white jeans. This pair has been the best! They are thin enough that I don't get too hot in the summer, thick enough that they aren't considered jeggings, and long enough that I can wear them down with wedges or cuffed with flats. A summer white jean is a definite staple for summer, so make sure you find some that you love (cause you'll be wearing them all the time!).

What is your favorite "white" piece in your closet?
