white jeans in winter, 4 ways

no one better tell me that you can't wear white after labor day, i can and i will! we're lucky enough in southern california that there are plenty of tee shirt days still left in the year, but even if there weren't i have no prolem layering on some sweaters and boots! here's 4 ways i'll be wearing my tight whites this winter. {these jeans are from jcrew and are my favorite to date- i've had them for years and miraculously have yet to completely ruin them!}

1. sweater: anthropologie (on sale now!), hat: jcrew panama hat, bag: heather heron, booties: steven by steve madden, watch: nixon via shopbop, bracelets: gorgana, stella and dot 

2. coat: asos (similar), hot pink heels: ted baker (old), watch: marc jacobs (similar), bracelets: jcrew (old) & stella and dot, earrings: tory burch, bag: lauren merkin

3. sweater: anthropologie(sold out online but may be on sale in stores!), boots: jeffrey campbell, bag: heather heron

4. coat: emerson made, boots: frye (old), belt: jcrew (similar), bag: foley and corinna (similar), glasses: claire's boutique

*i also wore these same jeans here

Cute outfits! As a Canadian, though, I take an issue with those being appropriate for winter - I guess in California! Ha, don't mind me, I'm just bitter because it's cold out.

hey, thanks ya'll! mercie, totally get it. i'm from maine, on a cold snowy day these pants wouldn't cut it. BUT, i think before the snowfalls and as soon as it melts they're fair game. especially with boots!
and catherine, do you see what i mean?! style schizophrenic.
