A White Date Night

White is tricky but I've committed to wearing a lot this season. I find it all to be so sexy, breezy and clean (though runs to the cleaners will have you rethinking the obsession).  I've picked up a few new pieces but for now am pulling out oldies but goodies.

Surprisingly, this look in all white slimmed me down, at least gave the illusion that I was slim and tall! Could be the uber long legs I have for a 5'1" chica, but I'm tickled at how it hides the few inches I'm desperately trying to shed.

This ensemble came about by accident and in about 10 minutes. Well, except for the makeup, which is clearly pro done because of a photo shoot earlier in the day. I didn't want it to go to waste, so I found an excuse to get dressed up and go out!

I've had these pants for about 12 years and have never worn them. Can you imagine what the waistline is like!? But, I love that they're kinda wide-legged. And the jacket is this fabulous textured piece I found at Loehmann's years ago...I wish you could really see the detail. And it's so versatile.

All white for a date isn't the expected choice which is what made our evening so much sexier, cheeky fun and impromptu.

What's your color obsession this season? (admittedly, I have many.)

Glad I popped over from FB to check out the rest, it is as I said fabuloso!! My daughter the la otra Cubanita would say she agrees with you can not waste the pro-makeup :)
I agree with you white is tricky and super tricky for me as when we get older those inches or in my case lots of lbs are more difficult to shed so I am sad to say my super fantastic buy from Banana Republic (happens to be a white suit also) 6 years back still sits in my closet ready to wear one about those gorgeous pumps of yours :)

B, I loooove the white look. So fresh and so clean. I'm sure you'll spend a pretty penny if you do take all of your clothes to the cleaners, but hey, if you're going to look this stunning, then I think it's worth it!? :)
