east vs west [coast] style. white denim.

a week of white denim continues with our final week of east vs west [coast] style. we are all rocking styles by Paige Denim. i've never owned a pair of Paige denim, so i was excited to try the Skyline Ankle Peg Skinny in Optic White. i was nervous about ordering a new brand without being able to try it on...in white, no less, the most unforgiving color...but they fit like a dream. they are true to size and the denim is nice and thick. the last thing you want when wearing white denim is to show too much!

i hope you enjoyed this spring 2014 edition of east vs west style as much as we enjoyed putting it together. i loved seeing how the other girls interpreted the trends. a huge thank you to all of our amazing sponsors - Lulu's, Capwell & Co., Sole Society; and Paige Denim.

don't forget to visit the girls.

when i hear the term whites and brights, i usually think yellows and oranges and neons. here i went for the primary colors like red and blue and a touch of green to brighten up these white jeans.

a week of white denim. shorts.

oh how i've missed you. my internet has been down since last thursday, and i was starting to have withdrawals. the cable guy should be at my house as we speak, so i'm hoping everything will be up and running by the time i get home. can't wait to catch up with you!

there's nothing better than white denim in spring. or summer. or winter, for that matter. there's just a freshness about it in the spring, a coolness in the summer, and a crispness in the winter. white jeans can be tricky (i wrote about how to shop for white denim here), and i found a great pair/brand that i'll be re-mixing the rest of the week. but first, let's start the week off with white denim shorts + a classic pin-striped boyfriend shirt for a casual day look.


it started to rain!

east vs west [coast] style. lace.

lace. it never seems to go out of style and reappears every season in some shape or form. the best thing about lace is that it is totally wearable for everyone. you can go for a girly look like Ashley (Golden Divine) did, toughen it up with a masculine piece like Jackie and Tracy, or wear it in small doses like me, Ashley (Pursuit of Shoes), and Meaghan. but one thing is for sure, lace always lends a romantic vibe.
how do you wear lace?

sometimes i dabble in extreme lace just for the fun of it, but the tomboy in me never feels 100% comfortable. instead, i like my lace in small doses or as accents. this sweater was right up my alley because it's essentially a versatile gray sweater from the front with a peek of lace in the back. to keep it cool in our warm weather, i paired it with some denim shorts and threw my hair up into a bun.

key chains.

it's been a while since i've had an actual key chain. i once used key holders or coin purses that could hold my ID, credit cards, and money until a friend told me that i was ruining my car's ignition with my heavy key chain. so i removed my car key from the rest and have been carrying them around separately like this ever since. i'm afraid i'll one day lose my car key.

so...i'm leaning towards a bright pom pom, because it's light yet substantial enough that i could feel for it and find it in my bag. plus, it's just cute.

what's your key chain style? what are you currently carrying?

btw, there is some truth to what my friend said. eight keys or less and you're fine. anything more (or key chain/charms equivalent in weight) and you can prematurely wear down the ignition switch resulting in intermittent starting problems.

i still have the dealer tag on my car key!
i think it's time for a key chain.
