In last week's "Grandma & Me" Fashion Post I shared a new pale blue sweater that I purchased from TJMaxx. In that post, I paired my pale blue sweater with white jeans, which looks great. However, that pairing was just for our "Winter Blues" photo shoot, and was never worn outside. Even though it is totally appropriate now to wear white jeans in winter, it is not suitable for my harsh winter climate. Where I live, our cars are covered in dirty salt and grime from the roads and it's almost impossible not to brush up against them when getting in and out of the car. The sidewalks, parking lots, and driveways aren't much better. They are ice covered when it's freezing and if it does warm up it all turns into an ugly grey mush which splashes up on your pants. So, we cannot wear white in winter here in Wisconsin. I've never seen a single soul in white pants in winter in my neck of the woods. I think white pants in winter is for warm weather inhabitants only.
So, with all that being said, how else can I style my pale blue sweater other than with white pants? Well, a dark blue jean would be one great alternative, but so would these dark grey skinny jeans I'm wearing in today's post. Because the blue of the sweater is actually a periwinkle blue and thus has lavender undertones, it looks great with the dark grey jeans!
Other than the sweater, everything I'm wearing is old, so as usual I will link up with something similar at the bottom of the post.
I chose dark grey boots, similar to the color of the pants, to elongate the legs.
I colored my nails a fun light blue and wore a blue and silver ring.
For earrings, I chose this fun silver statement earring from Stitch Fix.
The sweater is so soft and cozy and has a nice length. It is very loose and baggy. I could have sized down for a tighter fit.
I think this sweater will be a great transitional piece in the spring because of the pastel color. It will keep me warm on those chilly spring days we have in Wisconsin, and maybe by then the snow will have melted and I can wear it with my white pants.
