White Jeans | Gray & Plaid

Today’s outfit in the {5 Ways} series of styling white jeans after Labor Day, is so classically Fall and cozy, I have a feeling it may become my new uniform. (See Day 1 with stripes and a military jacket here, Day 2 with white on white here, and yesterday’s plaid and puffer vest here). 

It should come as no surprise that it includes my favorite scoopneck tee (I love it so much I did a whole {5 Ways} around it last month!). Normally, white jeans and a tee is reserved for warmer weather, but when you add a cozy cardigan and boots, it’s Fall, y’all! I love this combo of white and soft gray, with a pop of traditional plaid.

Normally I’d add a delicate necklace like this one or this one, but I dashed out the door too fast and forgot it. #badblogger It’d be fun with a statement tassel like this, but I like that the bag takes centerstage on this one. This classic plaid is so timeless, and goes with virtually everything. (Use code SUGARPLUM10 for 10% off anything in their shop!)

Sugarplum Style Tip: Any color boot works with this outfit, but keeping with a light-colored taupe or similar creates a longer legline. And who doesn’t want longer legs?! So if you only buy one pair of booties, I recommend taupe for their go-with-everythingness. #thatsarealthing

What’s been your favorite so far this week? Am I swaying you to wear your white jeans year-round? I’ll be wrapping up the series tomorrow with a sassy night out look, but I’m spending today with a group of fabulously talented bloggers and editors of Better Homes & Gardens in New York. I can’t wait to share it with you here, but you can follow along real-time on my InstaStory!

    Love your taupe booties but I can't wear a heel. Would you say the Hush Puppies with the tassel bootie that you wore last year is still currently?
