I’ll tell you why I don’t love to wear white clothing. You would think that I love to wear anything that has to do with dresses, skirts and all, but no! I don’t love to wear white clothing.
When we had Summer Whites on the Stylish Monday theme, I really had to delve into the photo archives to find something white. I have one white dress and that’s it. No white jeans, no white skirts. That one white dress is worn once, and I have a white blouse that I never wear. While my American fellow bloggers are crazy about white jeans, and wear the most beautiful white embroidered dresses, I don’t.
What do I have against white clothing?
I never mess with my food, so that’s not it. I usually like it on others, so why doesn’t white clothing make me feel good. Maybe because I wore black clothes for a very large part of my life. And not because it was easy or slimming or whatever nonsense. No I found and still find it very beautiful. So maybe the contrast from black to white is too big. Or does it make me feel so innocent, so sweet, which I am NOT! Or…..does it remind me of when I was 18, and wore white trousers and a long white blouse and over it a bright green coat with green sandals. A outfit that I loved. Until that day that I was in a drugstore to buy some make-up and a woman came up to me and asked me for information about a product. She thought I worked there in my white outfit! Could not have been a very fashionable woman! Anyway….
I just don’t like white clothes. But ……. you probably already felt that coming. I had seen this skirt on the internet for a while and every time it stayed in my head. And it makes a difference that it is not completely white of course. So I bought it anyway. I love pencil skirts and especially when they have some cool element. Like the belt. Fortunately, I always know immediately how I want to wear something. I immediately see it before me, that makes a difference. Otherwise you have to buy sets! You know, you bought something and then you come home and find that you have got nothing to wear with what you bought! Not that it happens to me often, haha, plenty to choose from!
So now I do love to wear white clothing!
So with nice earthy colors I wear this white skirt, which is actually not white but off white. It’s high waisted which I love! A lovely off shoulder olive green top. I don’t like it to much off shoulder. Gold colored jewelry, leaf earrings and a leaf necklace, wooden bracelets and tan sandals. I think this is a relaxed, stylish, elegant summer look.
Would really appreciate it if you would share my outfit on Pinterest! Just hoover over the photo!
