Two things we’re fond of: 1) white jeans and 2) men. However, we’re also fond of both our high school cheerleading uniform and the present, and we’re not sure they belong together either. What do you think ladies? Is this one step too far? Don’t hear us wrong. We love a little metro. Give us the Sevens. Give us the skinny ties. But white jeans…let’s save those for ourselves and Don Johnson.

Reader g-love’s obsession with Kate Middleton kind of freaks us out (she basically growls when she talks about her), but we get it. She’s beautiful. She’s skinny. Her taste is flawless. And she was once just a little girl like we all were who grew up to be a princess! We’ve heard about the Middleton effect since the engagement (apparently the epic blue Issa dress sold out in under 24 hours), and that was just the beginning. She wears a plain, cream cashmere sweater and all of a sudden goats are on the endangered species list. The latest and greatest is that Kate, in yet another perfectly played public image descision, has started donning sheer pantyhose. And even more impressive, she’s pulling them off. Katie Couric famously told us that “New York women don’t wear pantyhose” (Michelle Obama hates them too), but apparently British women do, because pantyhose sales in the UK have gone up 85%!! What do you think? Are you hoping for shiny long legs like Kate? Or are you still a modern American woman like Katie?

Bobos* everywhere love themselves some TOMS SHOES. Need more to fix your fancy? Now we have TOMS Sunglasses to enjoy! Love these Wayfarer look alikes…maybe even more than the real thing! Especially like the little color on the end of the arms.
*Essentially the person that Stuff White People Like was written about. Stands for Bohemian Bourgeois.

We love these heels from J.Crew (“I live” as fashionista Reader Ellie tells us that NYC women say when they love something), but they are $250, and that’s ridiculous for shoes from J.Crew. Anyone seen some comparable heel / boot tan shoes for fall?

Right after Labor Day, everyone wants us to write about one thing and one thing only. Can we continue to wear white…? Everyone always says it’s okay, but no one really ever does it. We always make bold claims about how we don’t care what antiquated fashion rules say, but then whenever we attempt to walk out of the house in our white jeans, it just feels wrong (and you may note that everything generally feels pretty right about our white jeans, as we’ve pretty much had a love affair with them for the past two summers as evidenced by half of the recent pics of me on this blog).
Even Emily Post’s Book of Etiquette (17th Edition) says white after Labor Day is okay…but we’re on the (white picket?) fence. In Georgia, summer ain’t going anywhere for awhile. So help us ladies, what’s the white thing to do? In the very least, check out these cute cropped Breton’s on sales.

We think we like these little “Minnie” pants in Italian wool from J.Crew. Maybe because they have a bit of a Laura Petrie from The Dick Van Dyke Show quality, and we still love Mary Tyler Moore. Thoughts?

Our favorite season is so close we can taste it (oh football season, tailgating, running in t-shirts, pumpkin bread, red wine how we love thee so!!), and we are ready to get rid of our staple white short shorts (okay, we’re never fully ready to stop wearing short shorts, but you get the idea) and start thinking about our fall clothes!! One of our favorite fall / holiday season purchases is always our holiday party dress. What do we think about this cute one from Kate Spade? You know how we feel about cinching that waistline (a must – especially for
Amazon women tall girls like us), but this one looks like it might still have some shape. Thoughts? Other ideas?
