Thank you to LOFT Outlet and ShopStyle for sponsoring today’s post. 

Hi friends! Is it one more day ’til your Christmas break?  As y’all know, we’ve been on break early since last Wednesday!  And the kids are anxious for Christmas to arrive!

I’ve been secretly wrapping and hiding presents and our stockings are ready to fill now that we’ve attached handwritten names to them.  I drove to get them monogrammed, but when we arrived, the place was out of business and I didn’t have the energy to go somewhere else.  #nextyear #likethecards

Our Elf “Buddy” has been making nightly visits to our home, popping up all over the place, most recently hanging out with the gingerbread figures Jordan made last weekend.

And I must say, the $1 chocolate Advent calendar has been one of the daily joys for both of my kids’ (ages 3 and 9). Every morning, they race downstairs to open that day’s window to get a little surprise chocolate.  Jordan even goes to bed asking what the next day’s number is!  Those little joys are the best!


Today, I have three winter white outfits to share with you, all with a super cute pair of ivory colored jeans.  I chose ivory because it’s a softer look than bright white and goes with so many pieces you are likely to already have in your closet!

Below, I’m sharing how you can style your white jeans several different ways- with a light-colored top, mononchromatic look, and even a darker top and shoes.

Y’all know how much I enjoy LOFT and the awesome mix and match styles they have for every season, but I often forget about their sister store, LOFT Outlet.  Did you know you can shop LOFT Outlet online?

They have the same great styles, but with even better deals!


Ivory jeans and leopard sweater

Sweater JeansBootiesCrossbody Bag

These jeans are called “snow white” but they are definitely more ivory or cream colored, which I really like.  They’re a skinny style with a tapered leg and just a bit of stretch.

Jeans Fit : I sized up to a 2P in these jeans

Leopard sweater

I’m all about a neutral, monochromatic outfit- it always looks extra chic and pulled together.  But throw in a pop of neutral leopard print and you have an EXTRA special look.

This leopard sweater is on the more lightweight side, perfect for wearing casually or dressing up with a skirt or slacks for the office.

How about this crossbody bag?! It looks so high end with the shape and style, but it’s actually a steal!  It’s normally $69, but now on sale for only $21 with an extra 10% off your purchase!

It’s a beautiful color and shape and also really well made!



PonchoTank •  JeansBooties

I’m in poncho heaven with this one!  I felt so chic and classy in it, yet also incredibly comfortable.

It has a lovely cowl neck collar, 3/4 dolman sleeves, and it loose and long enough to wear with leggings.

Poncho Fit : The poncho is meant to fit lots of body shapes, coming in XS/S (what I chose) and M/L

It hit perfectly mid-thigh and is nice and relaxed, but still looks polished.  You will want to wear a tank or t-shirt underneath, because the side has slits that open.

I like the ‘sunwashed tank’ with it’s scoop neck and sporty style. The tank is normally $20, but on sale now for $7, with an additional 30% off! #oneineverycolorplease

Tank Fit : I wear a size XS

STYLE TIP : It’s also okay to wear a darker colored top with your light colored jeans.  And if the top has some bits of white in it, even better, so that the outfit coordinates and looks like it was meant to be worn together.

I like how this cozy fair isle sweater in navy has pops of vibrant pink, as well as some white mixed in.  It helps tie into the light-colored jeans.

Sweater Fit : This sweater runs on the fitted side, so size up if you want it more relaxed or longer. 

Also, sometimes a dark heel worn with a light-colored pant can look heavy and pull the eye down.  But, here, the black booties balance out the darker top.  The booties also have the cutest kitten heel and are very comfortable and easy to walk in.

The booties are normally $79, but only $32 now + 10% off your order


Can you believe that Christmas is less than a week away now?!  I spent a lot of time thoughtfully choosing gifts this year and I can’t wait to finally be able to give them!  What special gifts did you find this year?

If you need some last minute stocking stuffer ideas for the kids, I’ll be back tomorrow sharing my ideas!

Have a great day friends!

    1. Merry Christmas Megan!
      Thanks so much for the post on “Winter White” Jeans. I have an AG pair I got on sale (score! ??‍♀️) at Neimans last season that I really have enjoyed. I’m a born and raised southern bell and can’t seem to do the “white” jeans thing in the winter unless I am somewhere tropical of course. I’m trying to get there…baby steps!

  1. There is a great place for monogramming located on Memorial Drive @ Benignus. (Just west of Gessner, blocks from Town and County Center.) It is called “Initials” and they do outstanding work. Ask for the owner Debbie, or Roz. Both are super knowledgeable about monogramming. Love this store for darling gifts too.
