White Perfection


I have quite possibly tried on at least twenty pair of white denim over the last year. I am not exaggerating. I just can't seem to find a pair that don't heavily accentuate features that I typically try to keep under wraps. I have seen so many of you ladies rock the white denim, but I think I have all but given up.

Instead, I decided to go on a hunt for the perfect white skirt. Ironically, it didn't turn into a hunt at all. It appeared to me the day I left my shopping binoculars at home. I went into JcPenney's Sephora shop to replenish my Kat Von D foundation. As I was walking out the door, right there, on the outside aisle, this skirt was hanging with a big SALE sign above it. I went straight to the dressing room to try it on and then immediately proceeded to the checkout counter. 

Forever 21 Stripe Crop Top (option here and here) // JcPenney's Worthington White Pleated Skirt (on sale) // The Daily Look Ankle Strap Heels (option here, here & a lower heel here) // Forever 21 Quilted Bag (option here and here) // Lilac Bijoux Rosette Necklace c/o sold out (option here and  here) // Lilac Bijoux Bangles c/o (option here and exact here) // Gorjana Griffin Ring c/o // Forever 21 Sunglasses (option here)

SHOP THE LOOK



I suggest plenty of items to you ladies four-five days a week. It's what I enjoy doing, but this time, I am telling you, get this skirt. Do I sound a little pushy? Yes? Well, I can't apologize for it this time. 

The fit, pleats, texture, material and style are extremely flattering. It sits right above the waist (perfect for a crop top) and draws in the waistline. Also, if you are not a fan of the midi-skirt trend, but are looking for a full skirt, this one is your winner. I am 5'7" and it hits me right above the knees. It's classic and I honestly don't see this style becoming outdated anytime soon. Did I mention it has pockets and doesn't wrinkle? They also have a petite option that I think will work as well, especially if you are looking for a shorter length. 

P.S. This skirt also comes in black and both colors are on sale for $20. Go ahead and get them both!

Hahaha, loved Alice's comment. I want that skirt too, btw. =)

You look gorgeous. Such a happy girly outfit. Love the skirt, necklace & heels and want all 3. =D

As always a pleasure linking up. Happy Hump Day!!

Susan Jeffries said...

This is very simple and cute! I am excited that JCP has such great options now. I don't have a white skirt, but I think this one may be a staple. I can picture it styled several different ways, and that is key for me(: Susan

Victoria Mason said...

I totally agree with Alice! You are so bad for my wallet! I bought some leopard slip ons last week and now I'm loving that crop top!!! Actually, this whole look is my fave in a while. So pretty, fresh and springy!

I'm showing a similar purse this week for Glam Grunge.

OH MY GOODNESS THAT SKIRT IS FABULOUS! And it looks amazing on you. You are VERY convincing!!!!! :)

Hallie Oceanside said...

gorgeous! I love the "pops" of red!

Susan Liberatore said...

Seriously! I tried on 3 pairs of white jeans yesterday...all awful. Have been on the hunt for a long while myself...and I refuse to give up! :)
LOVE this skirt. Sadly, no J.C. Penney in these here parts. Boo.

Penniless Socialite said...

Now that is a crop top I can get behind! I need to check out F21! Also, every time I think of getting rid of my flower necklace, I see you wearing it and reconsider...haha.

Annie {Home of Malones} said...

White jeans are so hard to find. I love your white skirt and how you styled it with the red and black!

Porcelina said...

Looks so great on you, especially with the red shoes! I had a white skirt but it creased horribly so I got rid of it. Still looking for a replacement!! P x

My Rose Colored Shades said...

Love this color combination. The black and white and the pops of red in this look just really work well together.

The cut of this skirt is PERFECTION! And only $20? I'm tempted to buy one for post-pregnancy wear!

Erica Zar said...

It took me a good two years to find the perfect pair of denim jeans. I would suggest looking at the Loft. They have a cropped ankle zip jean that is perfect! I love the white skirt that you found though! So chic and your right it's not going to go out of style anytime soon! Great find!

Have a great day!

The white skirt looks great on you! I've had a hard time finding a good pair of white pants too... I think part of it is that I have a huge phobia of wearing white because somehow it WILL get dirty. lol! Especially because I have a 15mth old daughter with sticky little hands. lol

Jenn @ WLB said...

What an amazing find! That skirt is perfect! I'm a few inches shorter though, so I think it would hit me in a much less flattering spot.

SMD @ lifeaccordingtosteph said...

I own no white bottoms - the train is a dirty, dirty place, so I wouldn't wear them to work, and on weekends I'm pretty covered.

Amy Ann {the real arnolds} said...

I feel the same way about white denim...so hard to find the right pair! I love your skirt. It's the best when what you are looking for finds you!

White denim can be quite difficult - I agree. I have had the best luck with Gap. Their outlet pair of white skinny jeans is comfy & not see through! And the regular store - Always Skinny - is a flattering cut as well. Hope that helps!

SO crazy...I was cutting through JCP last night on the way to another store, and saw this skirt and was obsessed! Unfortunately they had nowhere near my size, but I just loved it. And I just saw you on my FB news feed wearing it and couldn't look at your post quick enough! It's so stinkin cute, and I love that the length is easily work appropriate.

Gimme gimme gimme! But unfortunately, white and I are not good friends. I am messy! And I just have this undying love for my Nike shorts that always seem to trump items like this. Maybe Chris and I need to find more places to go where Nike shorts aren't acceptable...then I would have an excuse to buy skirts like this!!

Rachel Lynne said...

This outfit is PERFECTION! Love it all! Especially the skirt!

Berty Morales said...

In love with this entire look. Gorgeous as usual.

Johanna said...

There is so much to love in this ensemble. You look amazing! I now need that skirt. (sending my husband to you once it shows up on our bank statement) HA!

Audrey @ Putting Me Together said...

LOOOOOOOVE it! I already told you this on Insta, but you look HOTT! It's the red against that white--amazing combo!

Erica McLeod said...

I love the white skirt - so cute. By the way, I was having such a tough time finding white jeans too, they are not very forgiving! But I found a pair I love last summer at Loft - they were the "Modern Fit". They are great! Give them a try

White denim is hard! I have a pair from Target that I love, but I have to wear longer tops with it to cover the hips;) You look great in this classic combo…those red shoes look awesome with that skirt!

Misty, Handbags + Handguns said...

Love this whole look!

Alyssa said...

I love this whole combo–the white/red/striped is a perfect combo!

JL said...

So Funny! I was just at lunch, saw this skirt and had to have it. I couldn't believe it when I opened up your post. I agree - if you don't have this skirt Run and go get it!

LOVE the skirt! I've been tempted to get another white skirt but I already have like 3!
Love how you styled it too - so classy!
