White denim is a thing out here in Phila's mainline. A BIG thing. Mike and I went out in Wayne last summer, to a new(ish) Mexican place and I KID YOU NOT every single woman was wearing white jeans, a white skirt, white shorts or a white dress.
(I was wearing my super-short cut-offs and heels. Oops.)
But isn't that crazy?? 100% of the women! All in white with some kind of preppy Lilly/Tory/etc top or shoe or bag or something! It blew my mind. But to be fair, it hasn't happened since (at least not everyone in the bar), but man. That one night shows some serious cultural commitment to preppy white denim.
And I do like preppy...but in smaller doses, perhaps, than the typical mainline Mama. So for the past few summers, I've been trying to figure out how to rock my white denim without falling into the whole Mainline Mom Uniform. Not that it's a bad thing...it's just not really my thing.
