Three Ideas for White Jeans | Full House Reboot


Is anyone else excited for the "Full House" reboot, "Fuller House"? My daughter sure is. Thanks to Nick At Night and DVR, I have seen every.single.episode of the original at least 4 times. And I'm not exaggerating (it may actually be more). I had heard the rumors that the actors were in talks for a reboot, but I really didn't think much of it until John Stamos announced the new Netflix series a few nights ago on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Let's hope it's as good as the original.

Full Disclosure on this outfit post. I was totally inspired by Gina from On the Daily Express. She had a post this week with white jeans. Thanks, Gina! Honestly, I could wear my white jeans every day. They really go with everything, but I have included 3 outfits: preppy, transitional, and dressy.

Preppy

I am one of the many disappointed Target consumers that had hoped to snag one of the Lilly Pulitzer pieces. I had my online Target account all ready to go but all in all, I wasn't going to wait by my computer in the middle of the night for the sales to go live. I love preppy, floral prints and ordered this blouse from J. Crew Factory a few weeks ago. I think it is a good substitute for Lilly. I paired it with coganc and gold chain accessories.

Jeans: Loft
Sandals: DSW
Purse: Tory Burch
Necklace: J. Crew Factory
Ring: Old Navy
Bracelets: Charming Charlie



Transitional

We are back in the Midwest which means we have a few days of beautiful warm days followed by a few days of freezing weather and then everything in between. I am a firm believer in trying to overlap all of the season's pieces. I had this Express sweater on here in the fall. It is lightweight a truly perfect piece for these between temps. I also need a type of shoe that is between a boot and a sandal.

Sweater: Express
Jeans: Loft
Necklace: Target
Shoes: Old Navy
Purse: Forever 21
Cuff: Forever 21



Dressy

I ordered this navy lace top from Banana Republic on a whim when it was super discounted. I don't typically buy much from BR as I find it a bit dressier than what I need for my every day stay-and-work-at-home-mom wardrobe. I am very, very happy with this top. I see myself wearing it many times this spring and summer.

Top: Banana Republic
Tank: Old Navy
Jeans: Loft
Shoes: Old Navy
Necklace: Forever 21
Bracelets: eBay

Nautical Nice

Blouse: The Limited (similar)
Necklace: J. Crew Outlet (exact)
Jeans: Loft (exact)
Purse: Tory Burch (similar)
Sandals: DSW (similar)
Sunglasses: Loft (similar)

Nautical looks are a favorite for spring. I picked up this top on clearance this past fall but knew that I would get a lot more wear out of it once the weather got warmer. I also knew that I wanted to pair it with white. I think I will even wear it with white shorts this summer. Speaking of white for summer - I took some skirt outfit pictures and hello, white legs. My eyes hurt from the glare. I didn't have this problem when living in Florida. I definitely took having a light tan for granted. I need to pick up some self tanner quick!

Shiny and Neutral

I wore this out to dinner when my mom was visitng. Sometimes I get caught up on thinking that neutrals are boring, but if you add a bunch of shiny accessories, it can bring everything up a notch or two. I really like how it turned out.

Cruise Recap

At the top of the fort overlooking our ship. Laila looks thrilled

I keep putting off this post because we took a lot of pictures and it's a bit of work to go through them. I know, first world problems!

We went on a Disney cruise. I will eventually do a post on our experience with this cruise line and others, but that will be another post.  

To recap, we flew to Orlando and took a quick bus to Port Canaveral. Our stops were San Juan, Puerto Rico; San Maarten; Disney's Castaway Cay. We did an excursion at each port. I don't want to include too many pictures, because no one cares except my mom (hi Mom!)

1. San Juan - Castillo San Cristobal. We took a walking tour to the fort. Castillo San Cristobal was built by Spain to protect against land based attacks from other countries. It was in the ideal place in the Caribbean to stop on the way to South America. The original fort started construction over 250 years ago.

Navy is the perfect color for spring. I love it with green, pink, yellow, white.....I saw this butterfly Portofino on the sale rack at Express last weekend and scooped it up right away. I've already worn it three times and each time with a different accent color. I love purchases like that.
