White Out

As part of the Bloggers do it Better project, I'm donning all white today.  Now I love me some colors, so when I read that the challenge was to create a beautiful look without using color I was a bit skeptical.  Usually the only white I wear is the paleness of my legs in the winter time.  Anyway, I sucked it up and am actually pleased with the result.  In true Kinsey fashion, I had to incorporate color into this colorless look somehow. Throw on a little red lipstick and a bright umbrella and I'm ready to rock this white look!  (Sidenote: how nice is it that it is raining when we're supposed to be wearing all white?  Mother Nature is surely a man looking for a blogger wet tee-shirt contest...)
Top: Banana Republic
Skirt: Limited
Coat: Nine West
Shoes: Mossimo
Necklace: ???
Bag: Coach

I love the back shots with the umbrella. You are a natural!

Would love it, if you would stop by and see how a 45+ year old handles “White Out”—you might get a good chuckle anyway! See you there! http://stillblondeafteralltheseyears.com/2011/05/white-out-change-it-up-outfits-modeled-by-women-over-45/

Weather can be such an outfit buzzkill sometimes! But you handled it like a pro ;)
Fabulous umbrella!
Happy to 'meet' you through the linkup!

I love that your umbrella says Seattle PI on it. *sigh* we're having a Seattle blogger meetup on June 18th. Maybe you should fly out for it? ;-)

Ha! So funny.. at least you used the weather to your advantage and brought out the umbrella. It really makes these photos. And I love your coat.. so jealous of these pics!

Kinsey, you're always such a lady. Beautiful, as always.

I don't know if I could pull of the white out trend. It scares me to pieces. Put rainbow throw up all over me, but all white? I'm hiding.

adorable outfit!!!! Great take on the white out challenge. Love that you incorporated the nude trench and that funky umbrella :)The Wet Tee-Shirt contest made me laugh, glad you managed well with this super cute blouse. It's too pretty for the wet T-Shirt contest.

Ok, not only do you rock white as well as brights, but you have somehow managed to sneak a fab umbrella in there! Props.

I LOVE THESE PHOTOS, Kinsey!! I saved the last one for inspiration b/c it's seriously amazing imagery. Way to go, sexy white dress lady!

Alessandra said...

What a shock not to see you in bright colors...but you certainly can rock white, too. Gorgeous.

Absolutely lovely outfit and may I say a witty post. Just the smile I needed for the day.
