White jeans, white shorts, white skirts, white dresses. All say summer and look fabulous with a bright pop of color. As an example, I’m styling a white denim skirt outfit with a bright yellow top for an easy summer casual look.
It seems that I use the word casual quite a bit. I’ve gone fairly “caj” in my wardrobe since my semi-retirement so that makes sense. But did you know there is a great deal of discussion about the short version of casual and how to spell it?? There’s a bit of trivia for you! Lol! Some folks spell it as “cazh” but somehow that just looks wrong to me!! I guess we’ll just have to wait until it moves from being slang to a real word in the dictionary!
And now, for the “caj” outfit…
The White Denim Skirt Outfit
A denim skirt in white is truly a summer staple. I like this one as it’s just a bit of an A-line, meaning not too fitted, and the length is just right for a casual summer skirt without being too short. It comes in regular and petite and in many cases, I just order the regular size to get another inch or two in the length for a shorter skirt.
Almost any color top looks good with a white bottom piece. Florals, neons, pastels, stripes, vibrant shades–you name it–all simply pop against the white background. And really, can you resist yellow? Lol! If you’ve been following me for a while you know I really like yellow. I know some shades don’t work for everybody, but there is a hue for every skin tone. You just have to play with it until you find the right color for you.
This top is one of those amazing “finds.” Just wait until you see the price! Under $20? Oh, yeah. It also comes in white and that one is really cute, too. The eyelet on the front really dresses it up and so does the trim around the high V of the neck. The back is a stretchy knit which actually helps to provide a little shape. Sometimes an all-cotton top like this can look a bit too boxy.
With a casual summer outfit like this, you could go with sneakers and look cutely casual. You could even wear heels and a sweater for work if your workplace allows denim. Or go all caj’ (there it is again!) with some flat sandals or flip-flops. Vacation, anyone?
For this look, I’ve styled it with my Franco Sarto Wedge Espadrilles, my favorite this season. A bit of height while still comfortable works best for me. If you are into the current snake print, they have a super cute version in that!!
This bucket bag is such a cute piece and still a bargain! I can actually carry things in the lined drawstring inside and also wear it as a shoulder bag. Did you notice my watch band? It was a gift from my son, Max, for Mother’s Day. It’s a darling leopard print so it goes with everything! It’s a cute way to wear your iWatch. He said I could share the link with all of you, so here it is.
Finally, the disc earrings. I’m still loving these disc earrings from Kendra Scott. They have enough bulk to catch and reflect light. They would be perfect with a business suit, too.
