Buffalo Plaid

Wouldn’t you know minutes after these photos were taken I pretty much ruined these pants. Coffee straight to the lap. I mean looking at it now I can see where I went wrong — checking my phone with one hand in the car, coffee no lid in the other hand, Bryan driving, speed bumps. Not that I’m blaming my husband for the spilled coffee, no of course not. But I am saying that speed bumps are meant to slow a car instead of launch one. Eh, white jeans though. We’ve had a good two and a half year run. That’s pretty remarkable for very white, very stainable pants and a very clumsy girl. I’m calling it a success in my book.

    I adore everything about this outfit! I was looking at some truly lovely plaid button-ups the other day. Had to talk myself out of them since I was supposed to be Christmas shopping, but I'll be back, I'm sure. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I'm the worst with white jeans too! You're lucky you don't have the sand and snow down in Texas. It's the reason why I can't have a light coat either…

    This ensemble is the best! I'm a buffalo check print fan. I did a post on it back in October. The grey actually neutralizes the bold check but in a good way. Not to mentioned, the white jeans look great on you. This is a look I may have to try. You look great.

    Oh no! RIP, white jeans. It's an excuse to pick up a fab new pair, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰ I love how you styled them with the buffalo plaid. I've been meaning to pick up a buffalo plaid shirt of some kind myself!

    I'm pretty sure if I wore white pants now I would instantly ruin them as well! White anything isn't allowed for me. Love this look though!

    This outfit is great, Kendi, and I love the ON pieces because they are cute and affordable! I also like that you took the photos on the brick sidewalk – it really brings out the color in the top. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Excellent use of white jeans in the winter (if they had to go out, at least they went out in style).

    Shame about the pants! That's the reason I don't own much white – I am way too clumsy and they would meet their end pretty quickly!

  37. Aw! haha I love that you're not blaming B ๐Ÿ™‚ I don't own white trousers for the very reason and my biggest fear is sitting on a park bench or something and getting something brown on the bum area. It would not be ideal. haha x

    I'm obsessed with the vest and stalked it on oldnnavy.com as soon as I saw it on your instagram the other day and it was already almost sold out then. Now it's totally gone. I'm so sad!

    RIT dye is the perfect solution for stained white pants that still fit great!

  49. I suggest a thick paste of Oxyclean (add the powder to water to make a paste) on the stain for many hours. Seriously. It's a freakin miracle product. I wear and buy a lot of vintage clothes and have seen Oxyclean take out ancient mystery stains. Good luck!
