WIW: All Neutral Casual

I loves Angie's blog post with outfits combining all neutral black, grey, ink and brown. And to be honest, felt it looked quite autumn like and wondered if I could find a way to shop my closet for the summer version.

I started with these faded BF jeans as my blue instead of ink. I then added a grey graphic tee that combines black and brown in the picture. I added my cognac sandals, vintage cognac handbag and vintage cognac and black men's belt for my brown. Sunnies add another hit of black and brown.

I love how this turned out and would not have thought of combining these elements without the blog post - thanks Angie :)

Have a wonder weekend gorgeous ladies :)

Jeans: H&M (via Jeanne)
Tee, belt, handbag & sandals: thrifted
Sunnies: Ray Ban Wayfarers

BTW - did you notice that the gal on my tee and I are wearing the same sunglasses? Completely cool coincidence!

    Wonderful look Shannon!  Love the sunglasses coincidence.

  • Sara L. replied 6 years ago

    Great look!  I love the grey and cognac together.  Those sandals look perfect for summer, easy-breezy outfits.

  • shedev replied 6 years ago

    Really cute look.

  • Beth Ann replied 6 years ago

    You look amazing, Shannon! Love the fun of the graphic print against no-nonsense grey -- it keeps it grown up.  And your bag is terrific, too!

    Ok, that does it. I am getting myself a cognac bag and sandals.  I like this a lot on you - and with today's odd weather, it's a good colour combo to wear.   Sometimes the light isn't right for brights and traditional summery pieces - this works.

    So freakin' cute and I love coincidences like that, Shannon!  You rock cognac and casual.

    I love your version, especially the graphic tee, and you have some great cognac pieces.

  • Deborah replied 6 years ago

    This is so fab. Shannon for some reason I think of you when I think of cognac accents. The cognac tones really suit you. You are looking very trim too Shannon :)

    Drooling over the cognac...why, oh why, is cognac so hard for me to find?

  • goldenpig replied 6 years ago

    So fab Shannon, great casual version of the neutrals formula. I love the matching sunnies with your tee! Cognac is my favorite brown too.

  • ElleH replied 6 years ago

    Great Summer version!

  • BethL replied 6 years ago

    Love this, Shannon! And it all plays so well with your hair! Your hair is an amazing "accessory" (maybe in the truest sense of the word) all by itself. I haven't been commenting enough on your new style direction. It's truly fab and right up my alley. I've been reading carefully and taking notes right along. Hope you've been having a lovely weekend.

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    Love this, Shannon! And your hair looks really great, also! 

  • Firecracker replied 6 years ago

    Wow, you nailed the ensemble, Shannon, with a creative casual look. It's great from head to toe. Isn't it wonderful when Angie can show us how to wear things in our own closets, in ways we wouldn't have dreamed of?

  • Karie replied 6 years ago

    I love this! How cool that your sunnies are the same as is on your top. That vintage handbag is super fabulous.

  • Eliza replied 6 years ago

    Great outfit, Shannon. Love the double cognac! Always fun to see your weekend and casual wear.

  • Jjsloane replied 6 years ago

    You look great (and so do your flowers). Jumping on Team Cognac love. Just right!

  • Lisa replied 6 years ago

    A perfect summer version of the formula.  And a fun casual bag, I really like it paired with grey.
