a week of white denim. black + white.

since i've been enjoying these Paige Denim skinny jeans, i'll be remixing them the rest of the week. yesterday, i paired them with primary brights. today it's a black and white look with some prints and textures. a black blazer may seem too heavy and dark for a spring look, but this fun blazer from Patty's Closet lightens up the look by allowing some skin to peek through.

i went to the bruno mars concert earlier this week, and it was awesome. despite the bomb threat interruption at the beginning of the concert, it was an amazing show full of lights and pyrotechnics.

do you wear black in spring?
what was the last concert you went to?

this beautiful mint necklace from Paula & Chlo adds subtle color to the outfit without taking away from the black and white.
we arrived about an hour before the concert only to be greeted by a long line just to get in the doors. so we decided to grab drinks instead. of course, all the surrounding restaurants were packed because everyone was doing the same thing...but standing with a drink is still better than just standing in line. besides, it started to clear out as the concert started. we knew there were two opening acts, so we hung out a little longer and enjoyed as much expensive drinks as we could before having to get really expensive drinks at the concert, haha.

east vs west [coast] style. white denim.

a week of white denim continues with our final week of east vs west [coast] style. we are all rocking styles by Paige Denim. i've never owned a pair of Paige denim, so i was excited to try the Skyline Ankle Peg Skinny in Optic White. i was nervous about ordering a new brand without being able to try it on...in white, no less, the most unforgiving color...but they fit like a dream. they are true to size and the denim is nice and thick. the last thing you want when wearing white denim is to show too much!

i hope you enjoyed this spring 2014 edition of east vs west style as much as we enjoyed putting it together. i loved seeing how the other girls interpreted the trends. a huge thank you to all of our amazing sponsors - Lulu's, Capwell & Co., Sole Society; and Paige Denim.

don't forget to visit the girls.

when i hear the term whites and brights, i usually think yellows and oranges and neons. here i went for the primary colors like red and blue and a touch of green to brighten up these white jeans.

a week of white denim. shorts.

oh how i've missed you. my internet has been down since last thursday, and i was starting to have withdrawals. the cable guy should be at my house as we speak, so i'm hoping everything will be up and running by the time i get home. can't wait to catch up with you!

there's nothing better than white denim in spring. or summer. or winter, for that matter. there's just a freshness about it in the spring, a coolness in the summer, and a crispness in the winter. white jeans can be tricky (i wrote about how to shop for white denim here), and i found a great pair/brand that i'll be re-mixing the rest of the week. but first, let's start the week off with white denim shorts + a classic pin-striped boyfriend shirt for a casual day look.


it started to rain!

east vs west [coast] style. lace.

lace. it never seems to go out of style and reappears every season in some shape or form. the best thing about lace is that it is totally wearable for everyone. you can go for a girly look like Ashley (Golden Divine) did, toughen it up with a masculine piece like Jackie and Tracy, or wear it in small doses like me, Ashley (Pursuit of Shoes), and Meaghan. but one thing is for sure, lace always lends a romantic vibe.
how do you wear lace?

sometimes i dabble in extreme lace just for the fun of it, but the tomboy in me never feels 100% comfortable. instead, i like my lace in small doses or as accents. this sweater was right up my alley because it's essentially a versatile gray sweater from the front with a peek of lace in the back. to keep it cool in our warm weather, i paired it with some denim shorts and threw my hair up into a bun.
