On The Hunt: White Jeans and a Winter Coat

What a bind I’m in…It’s September and I’m still looking for a pair of white jeans. My desire for them makes me want to throw all fashion rules out the window and rock them with any and all fall tops. There. I’ve said it.

Jeans are typically difficult to find, but white ones are even harder. The normal fit I like usually ends up looking too tight in white. You can see the pockets through them, and it ends up being all wrong.

I’m loving the ripped look. I’ve always wanted to wear distressed denim at work. I think I’ve gotten away with it a few times, but the rule is that they must be worn with a super nice top. And definitely some kind of heel.

But, these plain skinnies are nice too! All images via Pinterest (obviously) I found this pair on Pinterest too. Cheap! I just have to try them on first…I know, I know, I need to find a nicer brand that fits just as well as my go-to Indigo Rein and Blue Spice skinnies. Unfortunately, my search results weren’t yielding anything from those either! 😔

Would it be crazy to wear white jeans with a fabulous winter coat? I don’t think it is.

Which brings me to my next desire: An olive green, extra long, belted puffer coat. Last March, I was at Macy’s Backstage and every last one of the winter coats was on MAJOR clearance. There were literally hundreds of coats, but only one olive green coat, extra long, belted, puffer…and in my size.

“You don’t need another olive green coat”, I said.

“You only walk across the parking lot to work”, I said.

“You’re too short to have an extra long coat”, I said.

So, I walked away without it. And am bawling my eyes out about it still.
Now that I have several city blocks I have to walk to get to my car, I’m really anticipating the wind tunnels, so I want something to cover my legs. And who can resist a good olive green?? Definitely not me. Of course, now I can’t find what I want. And, of course, I never took a photo of the tag or the coat…Here are some top contenders:

L.L. Bean Ultrawarm Coat, Long in Spruce for $269.00

MICHAEL by Michael Kors, Faux-Fur-Trim Belted Down Puffer Coat in Truffle for $244.99 (although just a few days ago it was $196…)

What’s a girl to do?!
