Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had a relaxing weekend! We were busy with friends and family and trying to finish out some home renovations!

Our foundation messed up [old home problems] right when we moved from all the rain! We have a peekaboo wall in our kitchen [there are little windows peeking out by the table, it’s really charming!] but the dry wall started to split. We had one part of the wall coming out further [like an overbite but with our wall, haha!] and have had to wait to fix it! The foundation had to resettle and now we are finally able to fix it. I wanted to wallpaper that wall BUT we will probably sell in two years or so [just because this was a teeny tiny starter home] and buyers don’t like wallpaper. Who would have thought?! 😉

Moving on from my Chronicles of Home Depot, I wanted to share these affordable white jeans I picked up last week. I truly believe you can wear white year round [hello, Olivia Pope] it just depends on the textures! A white eyelet dress? No. White jeans with a camel sweater? Yes.

One thing I hate spending money on is white jeans. I have spent almost $200 before trying to get good quality and they still get stained, turn off white and stretch out. So I wanted to get a new pair [I had none because all mine were 50 shades of queso stains!] and not spend too much money! I picked up these for $54 and was really impressed with the fit.

I paired it with a camel cashmere sweater, and this Halogen one is a great price for the material. It’s selling out quickly, so if you don’t find your size I love this one too.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Katey – you should do a stencil wall with an extra gloss paint, or a slightly different color than what you will be painting the new wall. It is super simple to do, and would give the look of wallpaper.

    Hi Katey and every else who reads comments!
    I have a pair of white jeans from Express – they’re stretchy and have slight distressing on the knees. They have been to, at least, the first 3 rings of hell and survived. I got black stains on the bum and they washed out completely with Tide. I sometimes forget to air-dry them and they come out perfectly fine form the dryer. On sale, I think they were about $45-50. And the other test of white jeans is – they’re not see-through!! If you’re wearing super dark undergarments, then you’re in a bit of trouble. But light colored undies are a no-show, which is great. Happy Monday!
