Summer Personal Style:Tribal Prints X White Jeans

Every summer I try to make a list of things to challenge myself in my personal style. Of course this generally means letting down some guards and tackling those misconceptions of society in order to take the necessary leaps. For me, the challenge of my personal style is trying new trends. Like any other person, I know what works for me but I also have to realize trying something new may work even better. One trend I’ve been struggle with for the past five years has been white denim in the summertime. I can’t begin to express to you how hard I was against this one at one time. It always had to do with the jeans making my thighs look huge, when in reality…My thighs are HUGE…I just had to accept this little fact. Crazy-right?

Now that I have lifted this veil and love these thighs, my relationship with white jeans has improved. I currently own three pair of white jeans and these from Dress Barn makes number five!. Yep I said Dress Barn, I had no clue the retail gurus of all thing dresses and work wear had decided to take a swing at denim. What I can say is WELL DONE Dress Barn. I honestly didn’t think they were going to work on these thighs, but I am pleasantly surprised about these jeans. I purchased these locally about three months ago when I first created my summer looks list and I was trying to get the jump on everyone, so some locations may still have them.

To celebrate my new white jeans, I decide to try another big trend this summer. Off the shoulder, it seems to me that everything is currently off the shoulder, showing shoulder, cut out at shoulder, and so on. This Black & White Ikat Print Frill Gypsy Crinkle Top With Elasticated Neckline top from Yours Clothing is probably one of my new summer favorites. The black and white tribal print with white denim is definitely sending a summertime vibe.
