Cream Jeans with a Utility Jacket ( & #Passion4Fashion Linkup!)



This week I established that it is currently perfect white jeans weather. Its been beautiful sunshine but still super chilly, which means bare legs are still a definite no no(that and some major defuzzing and tanning needs to happen before these furry milk bottles make an appearance.. ha, tmi? You can always rely on me, the constant over sharer.) So yes white jeans, or cream is this case, are absolutely perfect.
I picked these up from Shopbop, and for once with great hindsight as they are perfect for my Spring #RtHCapsuleWardrobe. I can see much more wear in them this season (and in to summer too) as they are exactly what i've been looking for in a light jean.
These are the Levi's Wedgie Icon Fit Distressed jean and the colour is the most delightful vintage chalk (light cream). Now, for me this seems far easier to wear than stark white.. Not entirely sure why, I'm just more comfy in a cream than a white. I also absolutely adore how these fit in a really relaxed way, which for me is more flattering than stark white skinny's (which i've tried many times and never felt truly comfortable, possibly as its like going over my non-best bits with a giant highlighter pen).

For a simple day of chores, writing and school runs it was just a simple causal outfit, pairing it with one of my other favourite items The Utility jacket, which is just the perfect jacket for this weather also. Plus the cream jeans and the khaki jacket are like two lovely peas in a pod, like they were made for each other.

  7. I love this outfit; you're right the cream and the olive khaki go perfectly together. I love the length of the jacket too. I have a longer one, and I find it makes me look homeless rather than casual, so I never wear it! Like you, I'm not comfortable in white jeans, but I might be able to pull this style off. You've inspired me to try them! Thanks for hosting this link-up. xxx

  16. I really like your cream-colored jeans. I have some white skinnies and I love them some days but not all. I also have a really hard time keeping them clean. The other day I wore them and managed to get yellow pollen ALL over them within 30 minutes of wearing them. And I couldn't change until evening...

    I love the olive utility jacket with the jeans! Great combo!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  26. Good idea, cream rather than white. So much easier to wear. I have always loved Levis, true jeans in my book.x

  27. Lovely neutral outfit! The cream jeans are great on you. I'm too clumsy to wear much white or cream, so don't have any light denim, haha!
