I’ll admit it. I was hesitant to wear these white jeans, especially for a “Mom Style” blog post. Or even pre-baby for that matter. I was always worried that I would get a stain on them and ruin them. And with a toddler in tow, I thought that was even more the case. And for that reason, I never reached for them in my closet. They just sat there, unworn. For a loooong time.
But you know what? I am finally putting them into my outfit rotation these days. Besides white denim, I have several pieces in my closet that I don’t wear, either because I am worried I will ruin them, or some other silly reason where I feel I have to “save” the article of clothing for something that I can’t even put my finger on. And then you see the problem, right? These things just never get worn! Crazy, I know. So I’m putting an end to this subconscious thought and these pieces. It doesn’t do me any good when I have things just sitting in my closet. They are meant to be worn!
Besides, if these jeans do happen to get stained, there’s nothing a stain remover can’t fix! And if they are beyond repair, it’s under $30 to replace. No biggie for something that I will actually wear. :-) In fact, I think white denim is a great spring and summer staple for my wardrobe, and versatile too. Works with patterns and solids on top, like I did in this outfit. I added my new favorite (reversible!) tote and walking-on-clouds cognac flats and voila- a fun spring outfit.
Do you “save” certain articles of clothing and realize you just don’t end up wearing them? Tell me I’m not alone!
