Is it time yet?

It was a glorious weekend along the East Cost - hard to imagine that last weekend I was bundled up in a  Barbour and this weekend I was in shorts and a polo (on the golf course, natch)! Let's hope Spring is here to stay. It took all my willpower this weekend to resist breaking out my white jeans- I felt like it was a bit premature despite the 70 degree temperature. But next weekend? I can see myself caving.

I never, ever tire of white jeans. They can be styled casually or dressed up, but regardless, they come across as crisp, chic, and timeless. You can throw them in the washer when they get dirty and you don't have to iron them- pretty much the perfect garment in my book! Here's a few favorites

The great Kate shows us white jeans don't have to be "preppy."

Michelle Williams sports the cropped version, and I love how the cut is not super-low. [By the way, where has MW been lately? I haven't seen a picture of her in ages!]

Kate Bosworth ads a chic, modern touch with heels and a structured purse.

Audrey Hepburn wore hers while working for UNICEF.
Audrey Hepburn - Bangladesh
The lovely Giselle shows us how it's done. 

A relaxed fit on Bridget Moynihan (Tom must like ladies in white jeans!).
Reese layers it up.

Zoe Saldana shows us the skinny.

My stylish mother turned me on to J Crew matchstick jeans last fall, and recently sent me a pair of white ones since she loves hers so much. I never thought I'd wear the same jeans as my mom...leave it to J Crew to get us on the same page!

J Crew Matchstick, $98

I also have a pair of J Brand white jeans I scored on major sale over Christmas and haven't gotten to wear yet. I'm not sure what style they are, but I'm intrigued by these midrise ones below. 

J Brand 805 Midrise, $158
J Brand, JBRN-1565 805 Mid-Rise Straight Leg in Aspen,

We can do without the cropped sweatshirt, but love these all purpose Citizens jeans.

Citizens of Humanity Phantom Skinny, $150

Distressed jeans are everywhere right now, even for white jeans.

And of course, these days rolled jeans are not just for walks on the beach! 

Old Navy The Weekend Jean, $25

Are you a fan of white jeans? What do you like to pair them with? And more importantly, have you started wearing them yet?

I love white jeans but can't wear them - I am too messy. They would have 9,000 things spilled on them within an hour :) They are super cute on other people though!

Love the white jeans and I was lucky enough to pick up a couple pairs... cheap!! So I figure if I can keep a white house clean with 5 boys I can do white jeans and bleach when needed! great post! xo

I can't wait to break mine out. I have a pair of bootcut sevens a pair of longer ingrid flairs so that I can wear heals if I'd like and now I'm considering a skinny pair. I just can't get enough!

White jeans are on my list of things to buy for Spring. After seeing these pictures, I can't wait until I have a pair!

Adore white jeans too- I have 2 pairs, skinny and cropped. Would love distressed!

Love white jeans, such a shame you can only get one wear out of them though! Always look so smart - love Reeces' style! KG

I love white jeans! And I'll confess, I totally busted them out last week (but I live in TX..and I feel like our spring starts way earlier than most other parts of the it's ok, right?!). :)

I like them - BUT - I'm afraid I can't really wear them as they typically make me look as big as a house! :)
