Good day to you, fine people of Blogland. I hope all is going well you.
Me? I'm marvelling at this lovely autumn.
And yes, I'm marvelling in my white jeans. In October. Why aren't they already in winter storage?
When I wrote this piece white-jeans-on-at-beaucette-marina back in September, I'd pretty much mentally closed the lid on white jeans for 2016. In the archive box with you, see you in 2017.
For I have a little foible about them this time of the year. The white colour doesn't stand up well to our colder sunlight. Well, that's my view, for what it's worth.
But the weather has been so kind that I thought I'd break another of my no-no ideas. Beat my foible.
Oh, I am becoming so brave, so iconclastic! Has writing this blog brought me out of my shell? Brought me out of my little world of insecurities and rules on what should be worn, where and when?
It's sunny. Why not wear white jeans? White won't look sad on a day lit with warm sunlight. There is, after all, a colour called Winter White. Ipso facto, it must be an OK colour for our winters. And if I tell myself I'm wearing Winter White, maybe I'll feel OK about wearing these in October, right?
Seems like the only tweaks required to stretch jeans into autumn are
1) a beautiful sunny day, 2) boots and c) something woolly, and d) a scarf!
So, let's look at those tweaks ad seriatim.
1) in place, 2) Clarks, c) Woolovers grey cashmere/merino twinset d) La Redoute.
What do you think? Do I look cold and uncared for, like I imagined I would?
Or do I look bright and cheerful in grey and (winter) white and all booted up?
Am I the only lady in the northern hemisphere who has told herself that white jeans don't look right at this time of year? I probably am but I'd like to find out.
So my dear readers, are your days getting chilly and yet you are still wearing white jeans?
If you have a blog, I'd love it if you could show me how you wear them this time of year.
Or, if like me you are wary about white jeans in the colder months, do you fancy giving them a try? And if you have a blog, do you fancy putting photo to ether and joining me in this little habit-breaking challenge? I'd be over the moon if you do!
A la perchoine.
