Re-Engineered: Gap White Jeans

8 Jun

Has anyone been able to find white jeans somewhere OTHER than Gap? I haven’t! So while I don’t like the almost $60 price tag, I do believe that Gap has good, quality jeans with the market cornered on white jeans. I still wouldn’t pay $60 because they constantly have sales, so I doubt anybody is paying full price (and if you are, STOP!).

All that rambling aside, I decided to “Re-Engineer” a Gap outfit around their white jeans.It reduces the cost by a third AND includes a gold watch.  What do you think? This is such a simple, versatile look that I know you could rock. P.S. I actually like the AE top better…a tie that resembles a scarf but without the heat? Um, yes please.

Gap Outfit TOTAL: $213.90 (Excluding Watch)

Halter Top (American Eagle): $24.50

White Jeans (Gap): $59.50

Yellow Belt (ASOS): $11.08

Gold Watch (Kohl’s): $16.99

Espadrilles (Target): $29.99

TOTAL: $142.06 (Including Watch!)

    You’re not going to believe this, but not long ago I had made it my quest in life to find white jeans. I looked in every store I went, online and struck out every time. But I finally ended up finding some–at Wal-Mart. $18. I don’t know if they are still there (this was a few months ago) but it might be worth a look! Good luck on your hunt!

      Well, you are not going to believe this…but after I wrote this post I stopped by a thrift store and found a pair of straight leg white jeans…in my size (crazy!)…AND for $1.50! I think they may be a Walmart or Kohl’s brand…either way, I’m thrilled!

    LOVE this outfit! great for the summer. i may need to head on down to Gap for these jeans (or elsewhere) and to AE for that top (it’s super cute!).

      I don’t typically shop at AE, but this top is great! I see it in my future too! Glad you like the outfit–I love the bright belt too because it can be worn again and again to spice up an outfit.
