I am admittedly terrified of white pants. I have hips and shorter legs, and I’ve always steered clear of the white pants section. But Old Navy lured me in with all of their pretty white denim ads, and those skinny boyfriend cut jeans, I knew I had to have them. So I went for it: white denim. And you know what? I kind of love them. I’ll admit I still darkened the look up. Shocker. I added stripes because I’m in love with stripes on all things, everywhere. And heels seemed necessary for my short frame. The piles of vintage necklaces and stacks of Old Navy rings, well that was the fun part.
If you haven’t tried the skinny boyfriend cut at Old Navy yet, do yourself a favor and snatch up at least two pairs during the sale. They fit so well – with just the right amount of bagginess that I want from a boyfriend pair of pants. The pair I chose also had subtle distressing which toughened up the crisp all-white look. Everyone swears by the Rockstar cut at Old Navy, but I am now a solid Boyfriend cut devotee.

This week’s final T.J.Maxx Style Scout post is all about prints. I’ve always loved wearing and mixing prints. When it comes to pairing bolder prints, it’s best to stick with certain color tones or shades. I’m also a big fan of mixing a smaller pattern with a larger pattern, or here, in the case of the small floral print on this swing skirt (perfect for every season, I might add), stripes were an easy pairing (cue purse and sweater). And because the lace on the scarf was black, I knew I could slip that into the mix easily as well. (The scarf selection at T.J. right now is bananas. Check my instagram for pictures!)
The oversized sweater was something I have been on the hunt for for quite a while now, and this one was designer, on a major discount thanks to T.J. Maxx, soft as could be, and with the added bonus of stripes. I wore a designer-score tank top from T.J. under the sweater, and bought the same tank in two other colors (black, grey, and white – tank top staples in my book.) The striped purse went into my cart the second I saw it – adorable, functional, and the black and white stripes make it incredibly versatile (New mantra: stripes go with everything!) By the way, ever consider T.J. for your beauty purchases? They have an awesome selection of hair care, beauty appliances (hello, new blow dryer!), and beauty items (often times, department store finds at a fraction of the price.) It’s hard to see in the pictures, but even my shimmer nude name brand nail polish was a find from my local T. J. Maxx. Win.
Side note: now that it’s warming up again, T.J. Maxx tends to put all of their tights (and winter wear in general) on sale; stock up now while the prices are reduced … you’ll be happy you did when Fall rolls around again.

I’ve been working on coming out of my t-shirt shell (the shell I crawled into post summer camp so many years ago … you can read more on that crazy here.) So you can imagine, when Old Navy asked me to style a t-shirt … the dreaded t-shirt … I thought, “uh oh.” But I marched into my local Old Navy store, found the blackest of black tees (plus an adorable little pocket … I have a thing for pockets), and figured I can totally “edge” this up. What does that mean, exactly? Add lots of accessories, of course.
Please excuse the wind; Miami was having one of those days.

This week’s T.J.Maxx Style Scout post was hands-down my favorite to style; the trend for spring: black and white, a.k.a., the contents of my entire wardrobe. I’ll forever be a fan of the classics, and black and white make that perfect statement, in any season.
