Fashion Over Forty: White Denim and Pink for Spring and Summer

It's Friday already that means I have another outfit post to share today. Last week I mentioned that I'll be sharing another styling idea for this new henley top. I love to be able to mix and match my clothes, and I think that's the case with most things from my closet.

Please note, this post does include some affiliate links, meaning I may earn a small commission if you purchase something through the links, as always this is at no cost to you. Thanks so much for your support.

For today's outfit post I paired my new pink henley top with white crop jeans. I wasn't always a fan of white jeans but in the recent years they've been growing on me. They are actually so easy to care for, since they are white, bleach can be added to the wash to keep them white.

In case you missed my last two fashion posts, this is a new linen top I recently purchased from LOFT. I ordered XS instead of what I should have - Petite Small - and it is a looser fit on me. Even after washing (and hoping it would shrink some and it did) it's still fits a little loosely. If you're interested in purchasing this top, I'd suggest staying with your regular size. It's been restocked in all regular sizes and you can get it at 60% off when you use code FRESH.  On a side note, I wish I had used a steamer after washing and drying it, but I used a regular iron and didn't realize it was still wrinkled. 
Such a perfect material though to wear on a hot day!

These crop jeans are from LOFT but a few years old. For an updated look I like these chewed hem jeans also from LOFT but they are more of an ankle lengths. These white crop jeans from American Eagle have good reviews and they come in regular, short and tall lengths. Zappos also has a good selection of white jeans with free shipping and return shipping. When ordering pants online, always check the inseam so you know what lengths you are getting.
Tip: Nude underwear (your shade of nude) is a must when wearing white jeans otherwise they will be seen through the pants.

I love the patterned bags from Sakroots when paired with solid colors. This bag I've had for a few years. The exact style of my bag no longer available, but this crossbody bag is very similar. My current favorite is this crossbody bag in the "multi peace birds" print. I also really love the small satchel I linked below, but find crossbody bags more practical. Such a pretty print and straw combination for summer! 
  1. Sakroots Flat Crossbody (this is the same print as my bag in the pictures, but slightly different style)
  2. Sakroots Crossbody Bag (I ordered this one when it was on sale)
  3. Sakroots Small Straw Satchel (I love this one as well but crossbody bags are my go-to bags)

For shoes I'm wearing chunky heel slides I've had for a while as well, but not worn too much as they aren't the most comfortable shoes. I prefer my chunky heel sandals from Natural Soul (purchased at   Kohl's a couple of years ago)  much more but I thought I'd better wear these on occasion since they are taking up room in the closet.

As always, thanks so much for stopping by today!

  1. I love anything with white! Your new top looks so comfortable. I also really like that bag. I have been downsizing my bag collection and trying to keep only the ones I love.

    1. I got rid of several bags last spring. It felt good to downsize.

  2. This outfit is way cute! I've always been a fan of white jeans. They just look so classy and chic!


    1. Thanks Lizzie. White jeans are so perfect for summer if only I had discovered them sooner :)

  3. Love those cropped trousers! Have a great weekend!

  4. I just purchased my first ever white cropped jeans this week. I think this top is in my Loft order too!

    1. I think you'll love this top. It's so light and airy, perfect for hot summer days! I'm waiting on this top in another color too.

  5. Such a cute look! I love white jeans!

  6. I like the pink top with the white jeans - I'm not brave enough for white jeans yet, with two dogs two toddlers and my clumsy self, ha! But I did wear something similar to this over summer with a pink tee in a similar shade and my white bermuda denim shorts! It's a combination I really love and it looks so good on you :)

    Hope you are having a great weekend :) We celebrated our wedding anniversary yesterday, just at home with takeaway but it was nice :)

    1. Thanks Mica! I can imagine white bermuda shorts would look great with a pink top! Wish I could wear bermuda shorts but they don't look good on my body type :(
      Happy Anniversary!!

  8. I love white pants and shorts especially in spring and summer! That pink top is a pretty color on you!
