weekends are for drinking coffee

^^^ coffee number two of the day pictured above ^^^

between my morning cup of black coffee (with cream and no sugar), meeting up 
with girlfriends for a latte, and an afternoon caffeine 'pick-me-up,'
my coffee drinking can be slightly out of hand! what can i say, i am a coffee-loving girl.
 and with so many adorable and delicious coffee shops right around the corner, 
how can i resist? 
with the warmer weather arriving here in seattle, i'm transitioning to my 
favorite iced drinks, too. cold brew, i'm looking at you! 
today, i'm sharing a cute, but simple way to wear all white for spring.
wearing white can be intimidating - when is it (seasonally) acceptable? what if i spill 
something? do i look too pale? however, it doesn't need to be! 
these kut from the kloth skinny jeans are perfect for easing into the white denim 
trend. they're a mid-rise and both soft and stretchy. while i wouldn't wear them to preschool 
(cue dirty hands, runny noses, art supplies, and all things messy), white skinny
jeans are great for brunch, coffee dates, or an evening out. they can easily be dressed up or
down, depending on the top and shoes you pair with them.

jeans: kut from the kloth via lika love (exact here), rings: antique gold & 
girly accessories (via lika love), flats: frye thrifted (via goodwill

to avoid overdoing the all-white look, i paired a slightly off-white, printed blouse
with my denim. i love the delicate neckline and tassel ties on the wrist. 
for added warmth (on this chilly spring morning), i brought my favorite
light-wash chambray top. additionally, i wore a few statement rings
(that white ring is my favorite!) and my newly thrifted frye flats. i thought i might
have been hallucinating when i saw the price tag on them ($12?!?), and while they're
technically a half-size too big, i couldn't resist. whenever thrifting, 
i always check the shoe section. some of my favorite thrifted finds are shoes
and boots currently in my closet! 

are you a fan of wearing all white? what do you typically
pair with your white denim? let me know in the comments below, 
and a special thank you to malika from lika love for sponsoring this post, 
and jasmine litt for helping style this look.
