White pants are a wardrobe staple for me.
I wear them all year round.
In the winter, I wear white denim jeans often on sunny days. When the weather finally warms up, I start looking for lighter weight fabrics in classic styling to wear with great looking jackets and tunics. I normally buy a size larger in white pants than in darker colors unless the sizes run large.
I am wearing a pair of ankle pants sent to me by Purple Poppy by Renuar. They have the slimming wide waistband shown below that I appreciate so much. When I wear a sleek tunic or tank, I never want closures and loops creating lumps and bumps under the fabric. Masculine style pants are never flattering on me. Always check to make sure you can not see through the fabric and always wear nude color undies with white because white undies will still show through. This link is to a Spanx foundation garment from Macy's that I wear often under sleek fitting tanks and tunics. It isn't heavy duty but it does give you a nice smooth line around your tummy area.
The swing jacket is from IC Collection. I bought this one at ShopMyFairLady. The tank top is from Chico's. I buy these in several different colors because I never know when I will need one to complement whatever I am wearing. A styling tip; when jackets converge to create an unflattering neckline, I leave them open to create a long lean line instead. A lower neckline is always more flattering for my face shape.
The shoes are old by Thalia and Sodi via Macy's last year. The box clutch bag is old from T.J.Maxx.
Mr. Mickey and I love to visit Gourmet and Company to sit in the lounge area or on the patio in warm weather. The elegant and comfortable, quiet atmosphere is the perfect place to relax and visit with friends even if you aren't having dinner there.
Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
