White on White

With only a few short days left in July, I began to realize how quickly summer is flying by. As hectic as it can be with all three kids home during the summer, I don’t wish these months away at all! I enjoy our laid back days with our only real commitment being swim team for the older two. The pool is the place where everyone is happy and entertained for hours on end. All they need is a snack bar break here and there ;) But swim team comes to an end this week and then we only have three weeks left (with vacation included) before school starts back, yikes!! I did their school supply shopping yesterday so that I didn’t have to have that on my mind and now I only need to focus on checking the rest of our fun summer to-do’s off of our list!

With these summer thoughts running through my mind, I decided to pull out a monochromatic white look for church yesterday. Does it make me nervous? A little. I likely wouldn’t wear this to a picnic, but at the same time it’s so refreshing that I wish I did it more often. This Madewell top is a popular one of theirs that I’ve had for a while now. The button detail down the back is such a playful detail and I love the pullover style. It took me half of summer to settle on a pair of white denim, and of course they are now nearly sold out, but there was a very close contender that you can find here. I probably tried on each pair 10 times to compare, but settled on mine because of the raw hem. Both pairs had a great fit however, that I was very happy with. Also, if you’re still looking for a great summer hat, this one is perfect. It’s light-weight and ‘packable’ which means it will hold its shape well!
