     At this point in my life I’ll take my jeans any way I can get them- Distressed, skinny, boyfriend, straight, cropped, etc.!  Don’t get me wrong- I like a pretty party dress as much as the next girl, but that also means actually having time to shave in the shower, and I’ll just get very real for a moment- sometimes my “shower” consists of deodorant and teeth brushing. Gone are the days (pre kids in NYC) of long, luxurious showers with not only plenty of time to shave but time to indulge in all the latest bath products too (a one time favorite activity)!  Currently I’m grateful when I get use soap!  Now a shower is for one purpose and one purpose only: To get clean (ish), and sometimes shave, in 10 minutes flat and  That. Is. It.  Hence why jeans have become a key staple in “mommy wardrobes” all across the globe.

     And while we’re on this subject, white jeans have become my latest obsession!  I always feel chic and sexy in them, even if 5 minutes before I was breaking up a sisterly spat over Shopkins or trying to get gum out of 5 year-old’s hair with peanut butter (I swear it works)!  How I love to wear them?  With all white of course! (I’m a huge monochromatic fan.) That being said, the secret to making an all white look anything but mundane- making sure each piece has various textures! This white lace top (pictured) with flower overlays is EVERYTHING and more, and just what you need if you want to make your all white look pop! And guess what?! You can shop for it now (just click the link) shop.daramichllestyle.com! You will be so happy you did, PROMISE!!!

     White lace is probably the most romantic fabric there is- I mean- in my family alone the past 3 generations of women have said their wedding vows in white lace, haute couture gowns reminiscent of a fairytale- prince included (that is until he forgot to leave the toilet seat down).   So basically I’m obsessed with white lace, and if it were up to me, I’d wear it all day-everyday!!!   For some reason, however, I’ve always placed white lace in the “fancy” category.   Considering, in just a moment’s notice, I could easily find myself at the playground up to my knees in sidewalk chalk, you can imagine that the opportunities to wear my favorite “fancy” white lace pieces are few and far between- sigh.  Well this season, I wasn’t going to let a little playtime at the park come in between my beloved fabric and me. Yup, that’s right, I was finally putting my (Louboutin clad) foot down!!!  Since I could bet that my time at the park wasn’t going to be any less any time soon there was only one thing I could do- and that was- get over my notion of equating white lace with being strictly “fancy”!!!  The best way to do that!? …. Rocking it with some serious distressed, patchwork denim- obviously!!!  The result, ah-mazing!!! Check out my complete “not-so-fancy” white lace look below!!!
