belle on a budget: the house of sage frayed white skinny

you guysssssss!!!  it's a new year, but i'm still the same ole belle and i'm finally back on a budget!!  this week was so fun, because i got to hang with some of my fave people at one of my favorite stores House of Sage!   catering to my love of all things bohemian with a rocker twist and a healthy selection of super cool aussie brands, HOS is always on my must stop shopping list.  and, it doesn't hurt that they're currently in the midst of their annual Red Tag Sale, so you know i had to get in on some of that super sale goodness!!  so, before you start, YES!  yes yes yes, those are white jeans you see me wearing.  i like to refer to them as "winter white" although in a few months they are totally going to become my "spring white" and then my "summer white" and i'm pretty sure they will eventually circle back around to becoming my "fall white" because,  . . . maybe you haven't heard, but it's totally always right to wear white!!  call it breaking the quote unquote rules if you must, but honestly, who follows any of those old adages anyways?  so, if you're a little slow and are yet to catch on, today's budget friendly topic of discussion is The White Jean!  more specifically; these frayed hem, distressed knee, super skinny, white skinny jeans.  i wear white year round.  i think it's crisp and chic and much like black, it goes with everything!  every girl should have white jeans in her arsenal.  to wear them now, layer up!  i always love an all white moment; think white skinnies, white button down and a chunky white sweater, or my favorite color pairing; white and olive, or "khaki" as the kids are calling it these days.  truly, i'm just a sucker for anything olive or military inspired.  so, to stay warm in my winter whites, i layered this fur trimmed bomber over a graphic tee and slipped on a great pair of black booties.  on a side note: are you guys loving these frayed hems as much as i am??  it's such a fresh approach to the skinny jean and i love that they hit so perfectly at the ankle.  i totally scored this exact pair in dark blue so if you're not ready to jump on the winter white band wagon, you can save these for summer and rock the denim pair now!  did i mention they're only $58??  yea, you can see why i need them in every color.  you're welcome!
now here comes the easy part.  wearing later!  they're white jeans.  they go with everything!  i am totally dreaming of sunnier days, so i styled them with this amazing blouse, killer fringe clutch and slip on mules. (which is also a big trend i'm loving, apparently).  you can shop both of these looks now at House of Sage and listen to this mornings podcast with 2 Girls and a Guy HERE!!
