White Winter Challenge!

     Let me just start by saying I was late to work today, and didn't get my morning coffee. I am now drinking a Coke (not even diet!) at 10:30 a.m. just for the fix. I think it is time for caffeine rehab. Moving on...
     When I read about Carrie's White Winter Challenge on This Free Bird, I signed right up! I guess its not entirely a challenge for me, because it is 70 degrees here in sunny California. But, I have been wanting to bust out these beautiful pants for the longest time.
    I will give you fair warning that I am sufficiently awkward, and have never done one of these solo daily outfit-type pictures. I didn't know how to pose. To smile or not to smile? Look at the camera or away? What do I normally do with my hands? So many questions! Here is the awkward finished project.

{T-shirt: Forever 21 Pants: Level 99 Jacket: Nordstrom}
I love these white jeans. They are actually too long for me. I plan on getting them hemmed and sporting them everyday of summer with some flip-flops and a flowey shirt. But, it actually worked out quite nicely that they were still long, because they are fitting in with the wide leg trend going on right now. Throw on some chunky heels, and they graze the floor just perfectly, making my legs look about 10 feet longer. I would say that I didn't hem my pants on purpose, but I am actually just really lazy and haven't gotten to the tailor yet. 
{Let's not talk about the fact that my booty is HUGE. These white pants sure do accentuate it. Great.}

     This was my favorite picture because you get a peek at my gorgeous shoes. Also, I wish you could see my new blazer in a little more detail. I have been obsessed with this striped beauty for some time, and I finally gave in and bought it for myself. There are gold buttons on the front and sleeves, it has a grey jersey back, some super chic cut-outs, and of course it is striped. I love it!
     Excuse me for not smiling in any of these by the way. I usually love to smile, but I felt awkward standing by myself in a picture and smiling. Maybe next time.
     Thanks Carrie for putting this all together! I had fun mixing up my wardrobe a little bit, and I bet all the other people in actual cold weather are having quite an interesting time coming up with an outfit. If you want to check their outfits out head on over to their fabulous blogs. Here is a list of today's girls participating in the White Winter Challenge!

Came here from Carrie's blog--I LOVE your white denim (your booty is NOT HUGE AT ALL and you look fantastic in those pants), and I loooove your blog design. Did you do it yourself? I'm yearning for a new blog design and yours is just perfect!

You are brave! I would wear those killer pants for 2.5 seconds and have something of a not so white color on them.

You look great.

And it's ok that you didn't smile...I get it. :)
