White and blue

Blue and white for a casual summer look
White jeans are a summer essential for me, even though they don't deliver much value in the holiday suitcase as you can only wear them once!

Normally it takes me ages to find a decent pair. They need to have a heavyweight fabric, not too thin, and of course look flattering. I was thrilled to find that the first pair I tried, from Boden, were keepers. White jeans look nautical and summery with blue and stripes - and fab for evenings with a sheer tunic top and statement sandals.

My Boden jeans are the Cambridge ankle skimmers.  They come up big as size 10 was perfect for me rather than the normal size 12.  The denim jacket was a real find from a charity shop: it's a blinged up Dolce and Gabbana! The label says "XL" and the jacket is a little tight so I must assume that an extra large to Dolce is a size 10 (UK), because I normally wear a 12 in jackets. I'm intending to lose seven pounds by the time we go on holiday in May so maybe I will be able to wear the jacket properly!

  1. That's a fabulous outfit, Gail! I love blue and white in the spring and summer. It's perfect for a vacation. And isn't sizing funny? I recently ordered a few pieces online and everything is way too big...

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. It makes life very difficult when the brands all have different sizing and sometimes even within their own ranges! If only there was some sort of standard system. You too have a good weekend!

  8. Oh what a find that Jacket was! Love it! I find the perfect white jeans hard to fin, so I might take a look at these. A lot of the time white jeans have a bluey tint to them in my eyes, or maybe it's just me! xx
