painting the town green

Last week, we went to the city to visit with one of my best friends that was in town. We hadn’t seen each other in over two years and spent the day roaming museums, eating cookies and laughing until our sides hurt. On our way home, Adam and I stopped at one of our favorite restaurants for a quick bite to eat and he shot this photo with his iphone outside the building.

I LOVE white jeans but since I’m not exactly graceful, am just waiting to splatter them with hot sauce or ketchup. I picked them up on sale at Gap a few weeks back and love how comfy them are. I don’t know when I began thinking that I was too cool for the Gap, but glad I came to my senses—their jeans rock and are way more affordable than the expensive designer jeans I’ve been buying over the years. Woot woot!

The hat is my favorite part of this outfit, and was a gift from my best friend’s mom when we were shopping in the city. I’ve never really considered myself a “hat person” but really love this cute 1930’s inspired one. It sorta hasn’t left my head in days and yes, I shower…thanks for asking.

jeans: Gap

belt: Forever 21

blouse: Banana Republic

hat: Urban Outfitters

necklace: Forever 21

    I’ve been on the HUNT for cute white jeans. I checked out GAP’s website (I heart their ‘Always Skinny’ jeans) but all the reviews for their white jeans said they were off-white. Do you know the name of those? Do you think they’re off-white? (they don’t look it in the pic). LOVE the fashion posts – keep em coming!!
