Bloggers Do It Better: White Out

When the next Bloggers Do It Better assignment came as White Out, I have to admit I was pretty bummed.  Not only do I not dress in neutrals, I was pretty sure I wasn't going to have anything to wear.  Still determined, I went to my closet.  Turns out, I'm glad for this assignment.  (Did I really just say that?)  For two reasons:
  1. It gave me the chance to re-shop my closet.  I've forgotten a lot of things I own for summer, especially since this winter/somewhat-spring seems to be lasting FOREVER out here.  I found these capris that were long lost and bonus - also realized they are too big. Thus, awkward side pose (classy, I know).
  2. It also made me appreciate neutrals.  Dressing monochromatic is slimming in any color and I have always passed over the white/cream/sand colors jumping straight into bold/saturated/bright colors.  I feel ready for spring in this fresh, clean ensemble and especially ready for the pool to open up at my complex!! 
Collared shirt from H&M, undershirt from DownEast Basics, capris from Ann Taylor Loft, necklace from ShopBop, belt from Gap, shoes from Kohls.

I agree with you, this assignment made me appreciate neutrals too! I am really over the hill and can honestly say, I don't think I have EVER worn all white except to get married. REALLY. Also, I love how you choose gold shoes. I am about halfway through the list and have only found 3 people who did it so far (me included). I love the look!
Would love it, if you would stop by and see how a 45+ year old handles “White Out”—you might get a good chuckle anyway! See you there! http://stillblondeafteralltheseyears.com/2011/05/white-out-change-it-up-outfits-modeled-by-women-over-45/
