Style 3-Play: White Jeans Look Two

How do you give the sweetest little white dress a touch of edge??  By layering it over jeans, of course!!

I’ve long admired the finesse with which my blogger friend Catherine of “Not Dressed As Lamb” puts together this particular combination; in fact – after revisiting her yachting and Valentine’s Day outfits – I’d have to say that she’s quite the pants-worn-under-a-dress expert!!

My own ensemble came about as a (very happy!) accident; I had a number of tops plus this dress with me in the Forever 21 changing room recently, and rather than yanking off my white jeans right away, I opted to quickly try on the dress over them…and it was instant love!!

The frock’s retro-inspired cuteness will make a statement on its own, too; but today was all about sharing this unexpected layering success story…and my second white jeans look of the week!!  Please be sure to stay tuned for Look Three; it’s coming on Friday!!  🙂

    Oh what a wonderful look! I do love the edgy feel and all the white! This dress is stunning and I love the collar on it. The added necklace is a great touch! I just adore coming and seeing what you wear you always have the best clothes/pairings 🙂

      Shirt collars are not usually my thing, dearest Kelsey and Kenecha – as you know by now, I'm much more of a "knits and jersey" girl! – but that little white dress was quite simply too adorable to resist!! And styling versatility like this definitely makes it a winner in my books!! 😀

    The perfect accessories here! When I come to your blog I am often reminded that in order to develop a great style we really have to know ourselves. It really shows in your photos. 😉

      A good black-and-white combo never seems to lose its appeal…don't you agree, dearest Joni?! And I think that "finding" ourselves and finding our style kind of go hand in hand; each can help us figure out the other!! XOXO

    Ohmygod ohmygod ohmygod this is BEYOND stunning, Monika!!!! There was no need to credit me for anything, you've taken this idea and knocked it out of the park!

    I want to look like *this* all summer, please. That's basically all I have to say…!!!

      I'm looking forward to wearing this summery dress on its own, too, dearest Catherine…but I'm positively ECSTATIC how well it works over my white jeans!! 😀 And of course I'm thrilled that I did you proud (even if you don't want to accept any credit!!) XOXO

      Oh yes…you totally rock the dress-with-leggings look, dearest Veronika!! And now that I've seen how well it can work for me, I'm sure it will become MY newest go-to combination as well!! XOXO
