Splatter

Wednesday, March 9, 2016 4:30 AM

Is it mid week already?  Woo Hoo!  

I have lived in the Northeast pretty much my entire life, with a small stint in CA.  If you read my blog or know me at all, it is a well know fact I just hate winter. I hate it with a white hot, all consuming passion. I don't like the cold, or the dark, I get the blues when the sun isn't shinning or I am inside too much... 
The winter just is not for me.  Here in New England it is tricky, I mean we technically have four seasons but it goes from Winter having subzero temps straight to Summer and 85 degrees. We don't really have Spring or Autumn weather for too long.  But, this year has been a gift!  We had a beautiful Autumn and right now we are having a ridiculous tail end of Winter/ beginning of Spring.  We are supposed to break records today hitting the mid 70s!  What?! Yup! 

I can not express to you how happy this makes me.  

All white rules have been thrown out as far as I am concerned, and today, March 9th I wore my white splattered denim.  I love white pants! Whether they are denim, cotton, or linen, I love them all! But sometimes I feel like I look as if I am wearing the same pair on repeat. The paint splatter on this pair sets them apart from the rest, and in my opinion adds a little something extra. 

Do you abide by style rules or completely throw them out?

Jeans: Lou and Grey similar here and here

  7. Ok. I am surprised that those pants are from Lou and Grey! I need to look closer next time I'm out in the LOFT. Too cute. And I can relate to your sentiments surrounds the dark and the cold. Our home suffers from not enough windows in the main living space. Working on ways to bring more light in! Have a fabulous day!

  13. Very cute outfit!! I think I just found a new DIY project for myself. I do have a few pairs of white pants, but perhaps those will look much better with a splash of color on them! ;))

  35. Rules? What rules? Never heard of them :) I too adore a spatter paint finish myself, I have a blue denim pair with that precise same treatment and I love them to death. When it comes temperatures, however, we are polar opposites. I am a big fan of cold, cold cold. The heat makes me moody and cranky and I feel as though I want to beat someone up GRIN

    There's a new link-up on my blog, Perfectly Flawed, and I do hope you'll come over xoxo
