Tighty Whiteys at Dawn

I had been looking for a pair of skinny white jeans for two years. Unlike with regular jeans, white ones tend to be really unforgiving. Too much stretch and they pucker across your meaty bits like a sausage casing. Too little stretch and they start falling down about six minutes after you have put them on, belt be damned.  And don't get me started on those see-through white jeans with the pockets that show through the fabric. I die a thousand deaths every time I try on a white pair of jeans that fit really beautifully, only to be let down by the fact that due to fabric transparency, my eye (and therefore yours too) is immediately drawn to the pocket area. The pocket area is of course in adjacent proximity to the crotchal region (props to Ron Burgundy), and therefore not my first choice of areas that I wish to call attention to.

These were pretty good. Not perfect, but pretty darn good. Enough stretch to fit closely without the sausage casing effect, a good fabric weight as to leave my unmentionables a mystery to the universe, and a length that I can either wear long or turned-up (as above).  So now I have some white skinny jeans - my new tighty whiteys. Nice.

Jolt jeans, (long length no longer available),  similar / J. Crew chambray shirt / eBay necklace, similar / thrifted Franco Sarto shoes, similar

  1. These look perfect, Kristin. Love the photo-bombing doggie. xo

  2. Wonderful casual spring outfit. Love white and blue together.. so fresh


  3. We are both love with white trousers :-)
    I know it can be difficult to find the right pair which is not see-through. Don't mind the pockets but nude underwear is key!

    Your shoes are so classy!!

  4. I bought a lovely pair of white skinnies last year in Marshalls and wore them with everything last summer. I'm a bit fat for them at present but hopefully they will be worn again this year.

  5. That is a lovely outfit. I'm kind of glad to hear that even skinny gals like you have the sausage issue. I'd love a pair of white jeans, but I strongly suspect there isn't a pair on earth that would love me.

    I might have to see if a shade like peach or lilac would be a bit more flattering on my chubby thighs and knees.

  6. I love you necklace, was it a one off from ebay or can I get the same???

    1. TO be honest, I'm not sure. I think I did a search under rhinestone statement necklace, or something like that.
