Michigan has gorgeous summers. With fantastic storms – lightning all over the place. One of my very favorite things is to watch storms come in over the lake. Gives new meaning to the word foreboding.
Any other Michigan water babies out there?
But I had promised to talk pants. White pants, specifically. Which I had previously labeled as not mom-friendly. I now rescind my comments. (It turns out that OxyClean does work. Hunh. Who knew?)
White + Blush
While white will always pair well with bright colors and always looks classic with black, right now I'm loving white with pale blush tones. Something warmer than nude, but taupe-y-er than pink. This color combo feels sophisticated, but fresh. Perfect for the end of summer, no?

White + Army
The army green + white combo feels well-balanced in a masculine/feminine type of way. It keeps my white pants from feeling too preppy.

White + Denim
I first saw this pairing…in either a Madewell ad or someone's blog. (Shoot! I'd like to give credit here….let me know if you think this is you.)

In any case, I'm smitten. Denim shirts are practically a classic these days, and this pairing is almost elegant. Of course, come fall, I'd throw on some moto boots and add a black cardi.
Is anyone else crushing on white pants this summer? Planning to wear them post Labor Day? (I'm giving a resounding YES over here…three cheers for rule breakers!)
Enjoy the rest of your summer, Mamas. School starts (for the first time – sob!!) next week….
ps. I thought Pax was being awfully quiet down there….LOL
