WIW - YLF sisterhood pants - and almost twinnie with Shannon outfit

Well I think I've finally come around completely to white pants. I was sooo utterly against them but now I am totally loving them in both slim and wide leg incarnations. My previous wide leg white jeans were wiggle in tight with absolutely no stretch. Una was getting rid of her white Gap Long and Leans and offered to send them to me. The fit is just perfect!! I can't believe it, it is like they were made for me. And the best part is that there is no VPL at all. Amazing for white jeans!! Thank you Una for sending them to me! I love them!

Another thing that made me happy about this outfit was that Shannon was also wearing a polka dot voluminous top with wide legged jeans today. I am feeling surrounded by YLF love. How would I ever get dressed without you all! (Zara blouse, White Gap L&L, Dr. Scholl's wedges, Garnet Hill tote)

    This is a gorgeous look on you! Very leggy, actually, and just the right amount of volume in the top.

  • Kiwichik replied 8 years ago

    Those white jeans are perfect on you.

    Great looking jeans--lucky you!

    Yay for YLF generosity! Those pants look FAB on you. This is a great outfit. Your big smile says that you're feeling as wonderful as you look!

  • rae replied 8 years ago

    Yay! I have a pair of Una's jeans, too, heh heh. She is wonderful, and so good at finding the pants forever homes. You look beyond fab in those!! Love with the neutral bag and shoes.

    Great outfit - the jeans are stellar on you!

  • CocoLion replied 8 years ago

    Your legs look really long in those! Great outfit, it's simple but has a go-anywhere quality. You could go someplace dressy and not look too underdressed. Or you could go someplace casual and you wouldn't look overdressed.

    Thanks all! White pants used to be a big no-no for me. It's easy outfits like this one that helped me get over my fear of white.

    Una, The pants are just perfect! I have another pair of long and leans but they don't fit as well! The fabric and rise on these is a little better on me.

    Sveta, I hope you find your perfect pair soon. I saw your other thread with the white wide legs and I think they look great on you!

    Shannon, Hello twinnie! This outfit made me smile all day knowing I have a YLF twin somewhere in the world.

    Rae, how funny that you and I are both pants beneficiaries!

    Makrame, the blouse is Zara from February's YLF meetup in NYC. Often their clothes are cut too long for me but I think it's actually an advantage here. I wouldn't want it to be any shorter.

    Mo, I know how you feel! I hate the thought of throwing away perfectly good clothes that I'm just "over", it feels better to know someone is going to use them.

    Denise, I like you described the outfit as not too dressy and not too casual. Without ever really verbalizing it, his is one of my style aspirations for work because I deal with so many different types of situations on any particular day. I try to look appropriate for all.

    Really nice!

  • Suz replied 8 years ago

    Fantastic!! You look so happy and relaxed!

    And YLF is SOOOOO great! How sweet of Una to send to you.

    Do you like your Dr. Scholl's? Are they TTS?

  • Angie replied 8 years ago

    Another white jeans sister! And one who took a while to convince that she would look this good in white jeans!!! :)

    You look so amazing in this! Love, love, love!

  • replied 8 years ago

    I can't believe you were every afraid to wear white jeans (or surrender the waist)! Look at how AMAZING you look! I love that blouse on you too. You could switch up your bag and shoes and wear this top/bottom combo over and over.......and over. It's that fab. :)

  • Jjsloane replied 8 years ago

    Fantastic look and great story. I think you know how good this looks!

  • cheryl replied 8 years ago

    You look stunning in those white jeans. I also love the blouse and the big bag :)

  • Jonesy replied 8 years ago

    You look gorgeous, summery, and effortlessly stylish in this! Love the white jeans and the button down--perfect! And yay for Una for passing along her pants!

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    Gorgeous! Just killer in that blue top and those amazing white pants! Your legs look miles long!

  • Vicki replied 8 years ago

    You were meant for white jeans and I love the blue blouse from Zara. Cheers to you and Una.

  • HelenInCanada replied 8 years ago
