Today I’m talking about white jeans. And wedges.
When Nordstrom reached out and asked me to talk about an item or items in my Spring uniform, I knew exactly what I wanted to highlight. There are two things that I’m wearing in all 3 of the outfits in today’s post, and they are definitely staples for me.
My white jeans are one of the most worn items in my closet, and I know that some of you love your white jeans just as much as I love mine. For those that already have and love them, then today I’ll share a few outfits and show you what to wear with white jeans!
I also know that lots of you are scared of white jeans. #butyouneedtotrustme I’m hoping today’s outfits and my review of my white jeans will inspire you to give them a try. #dontbeskeered
I wear my white jeans all year long (to heck with old rules!), but they are in constant rotation in the Spring and Summer. Today you are going to get to see 3 outfits with my beloved white jeans (more details about them later in the post).
I mixed white, black, brown, and denim together. And I sprinkled in some gold and turquoise.
And I liked it. A lot.

I’m not sure if I’ve ever worn this combo before, but I loved how clean and fresh it was. Let’s break down the whole outfit.
I know lots of you are going to ask about the white tee…and if you need to wear a cami with it. WELL. I think most of you will want to wear a cami with it if you are wearing the white one it on it’s own. HOWEVER, if I’m wearing a military jacket, denim jacket, or cardi over the tee….I don’t wear a cami. For size reference, I do size up to a medium in these tees. I have several solids (none of the other colors need a cami), the navy stripe, and the red stripe. They are definitely my favorite tees, and a staple for me for sure.
The clutch provided a great pop of black in the outfit, and I thought it was a bit of an unexpected addition. It’s on back order right now, but it’s totally worth the wait. The wooden ring is so chic, and I find myself pairing it with lots of different outfits from denim shorts to a little black dress (see it paired with the little black dress HERE).
If you prefer a larger bag and an all neutral look, they just came out with this neutral tote that also has a wooden handle! It’s so cute!
So let’s talk a bit about my white jeans….
I bought this particular pair of white jeans last year, and lucky y’all, they are back in stock this season! (I also have these from AG from many years ago that are non distressed that I love as well, if you are looking for a non-distressed pair.)
These jeans are stretchy, they are comfy, they hug you in all the right places, and perhaps most importantly… they aren’t see thru. Oh wait, also of extreme importance is the fact that they are flattering as all get out. I have a 27 in the jeans, so they are true to size for me. I’m encouraging you today, if you’ve always shied away from white jeans, GIVE THESE A TRY! For just $68, they could be your beloved white jeans too. Give them a shot! With free shipping AND free returns, what do you have to lose?!?
I’ll tell you what you have to lose, a ton of great outfits with white jeans.
And yes, 4 years later I still choose to rock this denim jacket. Like at least 3 times a week in the Spring. #noshame
And it pairs perfectly with white denim. And skirts, and dresses, and colored denim, and black skinny jeans, and grey jeans, and army green cargo pants…..but I digress. 😉
It’s hard to tell about the necklace with the jacket on, but it’s this great free form shape, and it really added some punch to my outfit.
And the earring’s y’all. They’re good. Really good. I scooped up the turquoise, but they also come in white, hot pink, and black. And let us not forget the sunglasses. I got them last year, and I like them so much I took them to a Favorite Things gift exchange. And the price tag? Wait for it. $14. #BAM
$14 sunglasses / white tee / turquoise earrings / gold necklace/ must have denim jacket
After doing white on white, I went to the other side of the spectrum and paired my white jeans with this black peasant top. I kept on the same earrings, the same wedges, the same jeans, and the same clutch. I just changed out the tops for a completely different look. And as much as I loved the monochromatic thing I had going on above, I loved the contrast of the white and black just as much.
black embroidered top/ turquoise earrings /$14 sunglasses / white jeans / clutch / cognac wedges
Get The Look For Yourself Here:
The top is loose and flowy, and it would totally hide a full belly of margaritas and guac. Which is definitely a requirement for some of my tops. 😉 It has a curved hem and some really cool embroidery along the neckline and sleeves. Even though this top is long sleeves, it’s easy and breezy…so this is a good choice for those of you that prefer not to show your arms, even in the hotter seasons.
I told you the earrings are good. Not too heavy at all!
And girls. THE WEDGES. Besides the white jeans, these are the other item in all 3 of my outfits today. And guess what….
I’ve decided to name the wedges a MUST HAVE!!! #cuethepartyhorns
If you are new to the blog, the MUST HAVE status is reserved for only a small number of items. Past items that deserved the MUST HAVE STATUS (that are still in stock) include the denim jacket, the best bra, the best undies (you will seriously want to throw out all of your undies and replace them with these) the best strapless bra EVER IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD(it’s a game changer), this tunic (I have it in black, wine, and olive green), these nude flats, and of course the blardigan. This is serious business to me, girls. 😉 Only the best of the best get named a MUST HAVE!
So here’s the deal. I wanted to name the wedges a MUST HAVE the day I got them, but I knew I needed to give it a bit and make sure they were as comfy as I thought they were going to be before I encouraged everybody to get them for themselves. WELL, THEY ARE. After I walked all over tarnation in them, and after I received around 25 e-mails/comments from y’all saying that you love them too, I knew they for sure deserved the MUST HAVE status! They are true to size for me, but some readers that have wider feet have said that they sized up 1/2 a size. They are easy to walk in, look great with a variety of outfits, and are reasonably priced at just UNDER $80. Oh, and one more thing. They are DARLING.
And they are now available in all of these colors. Click on the color you are interested in:
For my final outfit today, I decided to go with lots of color. I’m still wearing the same sunglasses, white jeans, and wedges…but I changed up my earrings and my top. And the top is fabulous.
embroidered top / white beaded earrings / $14 sunglasses / white jeans / clutch is from last year (I can’t find a similar one anywhere! So sorry!)/ MUST HAVE wedges
Get The Look For Yourself Here:
Here’s a closer look at the top. It’s a loose and swingy fit with gorgeous and brightly colored embroidery. I love that the embroidery is on the sleeves as well, and the little pleats under the chest are such a nice addition. For size reference, I’m wearing a small, which is true to size for me. If I didn’t need the room in the chest, I might have been able to size down….but I definitely needed the room up top.
I loved the whole look. I’m sorry to say my clutch is from last year, and I can’t find a similar one anywhere. I promise to keep looking!
I’m really hoping these outfits today have convinced you white jean doubters out there that they really are a good idea!
The white beaded earrings really pop with my dark hair, but they also come in royal blue, hot pink, orange, yellow, and turquoise! They aren’t super heavy, so I was able to wear them for the whole day with no issues.
I can’t say enough nice things about the top….
The detail and the colors are both so gorgeous!
It’s more than I usually pay for a top, but I think that some special tops are worth it. I got one like this from the same maker last year, but shorter and in white….and I wore it all summer long. And got compliments all summer long. I’ve already worn this one twice. The second time I wore it much more casually at the ranch this past weekend with my cut offs (true to size) and my flat cognac sandals (size up 1/2 a size). Also, you can wear it out, or you can do a 1/2 tuck with it.
A huge thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring today’s post. I hope you enjoyed it!
Which look was your favorite today? #1 (white on white with denim jacket), #2 (white, black, and brown), or #3 (festive and colorful)? Sound off in the comments, ladies! And if you have the MUST HAVE wedges, leave your thoughts! Do you agree with their new MUST HAVE status?!?
Erika Slaughter says
I can’t choose just one!!! They’re all so cute!! And I have those wedges and love them too!
Those beaded earrings are gorgeous–especially the turquoise–LOVE! Sheaffer you look SO darling in all these outfits! Time to get my white jeans out of storage…
Shay Shull says
White jeans and wedges? Yes ma’am!!! And these pics of you are GORGEOUS!
I got the wedges when you first mentioned them, and I 100% agree that they are must haves! They really are so comfy and I’ve already worn them with so many different types of outfits. I’m even contemplating getting the black pair too. I think Outfit #1 is my favorite, probably because I already have the tee and jacket. I will definitely be recreating that one. Oh, and you finally wore me down. I’m ordering the strapless bra today.
I loved the black and white combo. You look amazing!
Thanks so much, Kathy! I always love seeing comments from readers that have been around since the beginning! Thanks for being such a loyal and supportive reader!!! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Your blog is still the first one I read on Mon., Wed., Fri.:)
Awwww! Thank you so much, Kathy!!!!!!!!!! That makes me smile. xoxo
I love these pics!! And, I looove the white on white! Grabbing those wedges right now! They are adorable!
The black & white outfit is SHARP-looking! I really don’t need those wedges, but now that you’ve named them a Must Have… and that neutral bag you’ve linked…oh my!
Any suggestions for white jeans that don’t have distressing? I’d like to be able to wear them to work! Thanks!
Hi, Angie! I linked a pair in the post as a suggestion (Right below the picture of me holding the black clutch in front of me with the white tee and denim jacket.) They are expensive, but I have them and love them. Articles of Society also makes a non-distressed pair that are a great deal, I just don’t love them quite as much. Hope this helps! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Mary Pearce says
Tell us about sizing on black top
Hey, Mary! Sorry I missed that. I’m wearing a small! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Miranda B. says
Do you mind me asking what size you wear in the jacket? I’m trying to figure out what size I need since they are saying to size up. Thanks:)
So sorry! I should have mentioned that, Miranda! I sized up to a medium because I wanted to have room to layer! You are going to absolutely love this jacket. xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Meghan Webb says
SO glad I listened and got the wedges early! They are waiting for me in my mailbox at home 🙂
Finally ordered the jacket last week it should be in my rotation soon! I’ve held off on the wedges, but you may have just pushed me over by naming them a must have! Thanks for all the inspiration here! I’ve definitely upped my game with many of your suggestions.
You are going to love the jacket, April! And yes, you probably need the wedges. 😉
Jessica Tribbett says
LOVE all of these outfits (per usual)! I have a request to make incase you can help. I’ve been on the search for black sandals. I need a heel (like 3 inches, noting crazy), likely something chunky so they’re comfy. I need them for wearing with dresses like the one below so don’t want them super casual. Would love any recos you have!
Hi, Jessica! Type in “Sam Edelman Odila” in the Nordstrom search bar. Could those work?!?
All 3 outfits are very cute! I’m almost ready to bust out my white jeans. It’s been cool here, but next week we’ll finally warm up! I LOVE the black top, but it’s too much $ for me right now. I will keep an eye out for sales on this one. Happy Spring!
I’ll keep my eyes peeled for a sale as well! I will for sure let y’all know if I see it go on sale! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Sheaffer you are ROCKING the white and denim!!! You are just beautiful….now bring on SPRING and SUMMER!!
You are too sweet, Laci! Thank you!
Sheaffer, you look so cute in all of these pics! I’ve been on the fence regarding white jeans for ages…You’re almost convincing me! Also, your wedding ring is looking…blingier! Is that a word?! Did you add to it? Beautiful! I was blinded in a couple of the shots! 😉
Heidi, you have to get white jeans! After you get them you will wonder how the heck you lived without them. I did get a new ring for Christmas….but it was for our 15 year anniversary….a year and a half late! I was OVER THE MOON. I’ve had it for several months now, and I feel like I’m newly engaged because I still stare at it all the time (like in the early years). Hahaha! 🙂 xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Love these outfits! At first I thought white on white was my fave, then I loved the black with white but that embroidered top is outstanding! Gorgeous outfits.
Keisha Dawson says
Cute, cute outfits! I need these jean companies to get it together and offer a “tall” length. I love all of the jeans you post, and I have purchased several pairs. They fit great, but when you’re 5’10”, the length just doesn’t work. They look like I’m wearing crop pants.
Bethany Rinn says
Yes! I am really excited and hopeful there’s a fantastic long white jean for us tall girls!!
Eeek, trying to decide on the wedges. I’m not a really a wedge person, but I think I may need to become one. xo
Kaci! You should totally try them! No risk with free shipping and free returns!!!
Love the outfits! I also love that lipstick color! Can you share the details?
Hi, Jenny! I always wear Lancome “fashion icon”, but I mix up the glosses. Not sure which glosses I’m wearing in these pics. xoxo, Sheaffer 😉
Can you do a post for gals on bit smaller of a clothing budget?
Hi, Kristin! I know a lot of the tops in today’s post are quite expensive, but I don’t think that’s the norm for the blog at all. I will continue to share items that aren’t quite so pricey! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Fran Garris says
Love the outfits and am so excited for white jean season and may just have to try the white jeans you suggest! I wholeheartedly agree with these wedges being added to the “Must Have List”. At your recommendation, I purchased these wedges and have been thrilled with them! The price was good, and the comfort level is excellent…even when worn all day and I have yet to find a spring out fit that they do not go with. Also ordered the denim jacket because I have been so inspired by the posts including it. I ordered up a size because of the comments on the website but for me the fit is not good so I’m returning for a smaller size but I can speak to the quality being all you said and more.
Hi, Fran! Thanks so much for the MUST HAVE support! They really are amazing, especially for the price! Hope the next jacket fits perfectly! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Your nail color is very pretty. What is the brand and color?
Hi, Mary! OPI That’s Berry Daring! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Sheaffer, when you name something a “must have” I don’t ask questions. I buy. Done.
Erin! I just lol’d. Did we just become best friends?!? xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Sheaffer, I love the black and white combo. It looks fabulous on you! Do you happen to know what the difference in the cut is between the AOS Carly distressed and the AOS Sarah skinny? Thank you!
Hi, LeAnn! I’ve tried them on, and from what I remember they are longer and a bit tighter. Sorry I’m not more help! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
No worries…thank you!
Love the outfits and also love how you incorporate black and brown. I bought the black clutch and can’t wait to get it.
You got a new wedding ring, set! I notice the diamonds first 🙂 Beautiful pictures! Love to see how far you’ve come from reading years ago!
Yes, Jennifer! It was for 15 years…just about a year late. 😉 xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Bought the wedges when you first mentioned them…love them!
You don’t often photograph your full face without sunglasses on…you have beautiful eyes, you should show them more often!!
Hi, Sara! Thank you so much for the kind words. When I’m out in the sun, I squint so badly if there’s even the tiniest bit of sun, which is why I’m almost always wearing sunglasses outside! Thanks again for being so sweet! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Tell me what you don’t like about the A of Society non-distressed white jeans. I’m a lil’ older than you and I just don’t know if I should pull the trigger on distressed jeans. (are they see thru?, ew!)
Hi, Julie! They aren’t see thru at all, which is what I love most about them. They are stretchy and very comfy. For the price, they cannot be beat! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Hey Sheaffer! What kind of self tanner do you use? Looks great!
Hi, Debbie! This is actually a spray tan! I went to Suddenly Sunless in McKinney! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Hi!! So I have a giftcard to Nordstrom and wanted to know if you have a FAVORITE pair of everyday blue jeans? Thank you!!!
Hi, Lauren! I like AG and Articles of Society! The AG are quite a bit more expensive, but I love them so much! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Will you please do a post on the 1/2 tuck or the side tuck? I just can’t seem to make it look right when I try it.
Hi, Cheryl! I’ll try to do an instastory next week! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
I love, LOVE your blog. You’ve helped me make better clothing choices and I’m able to put together cute outfits. I’m much older than you but I can still wear a lot of what you recommend. I have numerous pairs of AOS jeans. They totally work for me. I live near a Nordstrom Rack and found them there for under $37.00 a pair. I bought a non-distressed white pair with frayed hem 2 weeks ago and I think I wore them 5 out of 7 days. Great deal! Thank you!
Robin Harris says
I put in a search on your site for the must have strapless bra. I have an even coming up and the dress I bought for it requires a black strapless bra. This post is what came up for that search. I did not see the strapless bra on this post, but was hoping you could help me find the strapless bra you recommend. Thank you!
Hi, Robin! YES! Copy and paste this into your browser: https://shopstyle.it/l/bMd6I
It is truly incredible!!!! xoxo
