For some people, Labor Day flat out means no more White until Memorial Day. It’s a rule that we’ve all heard probably since childhood and longer. I’m here to tell you, sometimes rules are just asking to be broken. I think the bigger concern with wearing white should be all the potential stains that you’re bound to come across throughout a normal day.
Take these white jeans from Old Navy, for example. It took years to summon up the courage to wear them to work, but somehow I found the strength. In the classroom, you never know what mystery stain you’ll walk away with: markers, food, copier ink, or just generic kid. The place is a hazard. I was so pumped to find out Friday afternoon I walked away unscathed.
For the rest of this look, I was going off of pure nautical influences: a little bit of gingham, a little bit of pearl, and a lot of navy. It turned out to be the perfect casual Friday look and did double duty when the fiance and I went out for dinner and drinks at a local brewery. Still, these pants survived an evening of eating gyros, sipping ciders, and avoiding crowds of people. Old Navy, I don’t know what you put in these magical jeans, but they are nothing short of a miracle.
Best and Happy Labor Day,
