White Tee | Blazer & Bootcuts

I'm thrilled you guys are excited about the White Tee series this week, because it may be my favorite {5 Ways) to date! If you missed Day 1, check out my pairing with a gorgeous pleated floral skirt here. Today, we're taking the white tee to work, or out on the town, by pairing it with a casual blazer...but it may actually be upstaged by the world's most flattering jeans!




Don't get me wrong, I love my skinny jeans...but really there's no more flattering fit than a bootcut with dark rinse. And the mid-rise of these elongate the legs even more. (I don't look only 5'4" with a long torso in these, do I?!) 

Fit Tip: The jeans are soft with a good amount of stretch...and the mid-rise waist means nothing is hanging out. #ifyouknowwhatImsaying I'm wearing a Regular 2, and the length is perfect for heels, but petite sizing is available if you prefer a shorter inseam. I could have probably sized down, but I think these look best when they aren't pulling or stretched.


I love the monochromatic feel of the black and white, but the color blocked clutch and peek of leopard give the outfit an extra kick.








The white tee gives the whole outfit an air of laid-back cool, but the blazer and jeans still say, 'I mean business!' The neckline of the tee, and pushed-up sleeves, shows just enough skin to keep the outfit from being stuffy, too.

Have you worn bootcut jeans in awhile? They always remind of that show, 'What Not To Wear'...Clinton and Stacey put everyone in dark rinse, mid-rise, bootcut jeans! But there's a reason for it...they're pretty much universally flattering!

  5. Love this outfit. There is nothing more flattering than boot cut jeans. I am not a fan of straight leg, even tho I have 4 pair. Have a great week.

    1. I'm wearing an XS...it's a stretchy-knit material, so has some wiggle room in the sizing. xo

  10. I am loving this series as I have no fewer than 9 white tees in my closet! I also splurged on some Current Elliott boot cut jeans this past weekend and bought the James Perse sweatshirt material blazer at NSale so this was the perfect post for today! Can't wait for it to cool down and wear! Love it!!!
