my everyday style: white straight leg jeans for summer!

I'm loving the straight leg jean trend right now... it's been nice to have an alternative to skinny jeans after so many years of that being the "it" style. I don't think skinny jeans are OUT of style by any stretch of the imagination - it's just more cuts are IN style right now.  Everyone's style and body is different, having more cuts to choose from at mainstream retailers is definitely a win for everyone. Plus, it's always fun to try something new.  Not everyone will love the straight leg/high waist trend and even I admit some days I am feeling up to it and others I just want the comfort of my skinny jeans since they have been my "usual" for so long.

You can see two other pairs of straight leg/high waist jeans that I love in this post - including six outfit ideas too! I LOVE white denim and so it was inevitable that I would find a great pair of white straight leg denim and love and wear the heck out of them for summer. This is definitely true for these jeans... they are comfortable (I went up one size), they give a fun trendy edge to outfits and they are affordable too.

Today I am styling them TWO ways... first up I've got a classic summer look with a olive tank, wedge espadrilles and a basket tote (similar). This look is perfect for weekend hangs or a trip to the farmers market. I love the olive green paired with the white for a crisp summer look.  For look two I went everyday casual with a linen blend t-shirt (I am OBSESSED with this one! So comfortable for summer!), a lightweight jacket and sneakers. This look is what you will most likely see me in for running errands or my summer "taxi service" (which is what I have learned is my new summer role as a mom).  White and grey are such a simple combo that always looks good together.
